Fantasy Guru Daily: 4/5/11

Courtroom football will begin in just a day, so some of the media focus on the draft will shift back to the lockout situation this week. While we do not expect to have an immediate ruling, the start of this hearing will at least bring us closer to having some sort of resolution with the hope it brings us football sooner than later.

We're not talking about two yutes, but the two suits filed against the NFL were combined and will be heard on Wednesday.

Active, retired players have suits combined … by U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson. This means that the scheduled hearing for Wednesday will include arguments not only for the attorneys representing the current players, like Tom Brady, but also for the retirees, who filed a lawsuit against the league because the lockout could jeopardize their benefits. The league didn’t oppose combining the cases, but still wants the lockout to continue. With the suits melded, Panther owner Jerry Richardson and Packer president Mark Murphy wrote a letter to the retirees detailing the offer made to the NFLPA.

If you have a draft and are loo […]

  • The latest projections August 30, 2015
    Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game. The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked.
