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.

    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, […]
