Fantasy Guru Daily: 4/12/11

The news cycle has really slowed down since free agency cannot yet begin and the draft is still two weeks away. Once either of those things happen, we will finally be able to assess actual football teams. Until then, we have to speculate on mediation and courts and whatnot, and yeah, it still sucks to do that. Oh well.

Judge Nelson appoints Judge Arthur Boylan to mediate talks… The NFL and decertified NFLPA are meeting in a Minneapolis court in mediated settlement settings this week, as ordered by Judge Susan Nelson, who is overseeing the Brady v. NFL case. Nelson is expected to take another week or so to issue her ruling on the NFLPA’s request to block the NFL’s lockout, and in the meantime she ordered the two sides into Judge Boylan’s court for mediated sessions. She also issued a strict gag order; you might remember federal mediator George Cohen doing the same, but there is a difference. As an appointee of Judge Nelson’s court, Judge Boylan actually holds authority over these sessions.

I was pretty pleased with the draft and felt I was generally ahead of the curve. While I did have to pay a premium for some players early, I did get solid value for others later. In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]

When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
