Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/22/11

If you have been anything like us at FantasyGuru.com during this lockout business, we hope you learned to stop checking Twitter every five seconds to avoid overdosing on rhetoric and BS. Honestly, we have become 500% more productive in the short time since the “union” “decertified” and the owners imposed a lockout that might not actually be legal (we’ll see what the courts say about that). The point is that it’s still March, each side of the argument is applying the full-court press right now (as expected), and April 6 remains the next benchmark day in NFL labor strife. We could see negotiations before that day, but if the rhetoric is to be taken at face value, we wouldn’t count on it.

NFL claims decertification is a manipulation of the law… This is nothing new, but the NFL’s legal team asserts that the NFLPA decertified strictly to manipulate the law in order to file a lawsuit and gain leverage in labor talks. Obviously, that’s exactly what happened, but it will be up to courts to decide whether or not the players had the right to do so.

    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]
