Fantasy Guru Daily: 4/8/11

If you thought following courtroom football was exciting, we have a treat for you. With the hearing complete, it is now time for love-letter football! Ok, there is not exactly much love between the two sides, but representatives for both the league and the players exchanged letters with each other and Judge Susan Nelson (Tentatively ranked #1 in our upcoming Fantasy Judge projections). Let’s find out what’s in those letters!

We can only hope the Sports Illustrated Football Phone still works for today's conference call.

Mediation to be discussed … over a conference call between the league, players, and Judge Susan Nelson. Based on the letters sent out on Thursday, the league has suggested mediation continue at FMCS in Washington, D.C. with director George Cohen, who presided over the collective bargaining negotiations for almost three weeks last month. David Boies, the outside counsel for the league, wrote in his letter to Nelson that the “…FMCS has a (16-day) head start over any other potential mediator. And given that time is of the essence, that is of great importance.” Unlike the league, the players’ side accepted Nelson’s offer to facilitate mediation by appointing a mediator to presides over talks that would take [...]

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?
