Fantasy Guru Daily: 4/4/11

So, Opening Weekend in Major League Baseball has come and gone, and hopefully it was a worthy enough distraction so you failed to realize that free agency has not yet started in the NFL. When will that finally commence? That remains to be seen, but mark down April 6 as a key day: that’s when Judge Susan Nelson will hear the first arguments in the Brady v. NFL case. We could get a ruling immediately, or it could take a couple weeks. Buckle in.

NFL refuses to negotiate with decertified NFLPA… The NFL and its relentless battalion of PR lackeys (see @gregaiello on Twitter if you need to vomit) has insisted since the union decertified a few weeks ago that it’s always ready to go back to the negotiating table. But an ESPN.com story suggests otherwise – the players requested to meet with the owners starting March 28 to work out a settlement before the April 6 date in Judge Nelson’s court. What’s happening here is a classic battle of semantics, something we should expect to see until this situation is resolved. In essence, the NFL is willing to negotiate with the players, but only in collective bargaining sessions. And if [...]

    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    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, […]
