Fantasy Guru Daily: 5/11/11

He refuses to go away. With no actual football to distract us from meaningless off-the-field stories, he has managed to permeate the news cycle once again. On the suggestion of former Panther DT Brenston Buckner, he might be back… in an advisory role.

Favre could tutor Cam Newton, agent says… Hey, don’t blame us for bringing this up during the lockout! Ol’ Flip-Flop knows how to get his name out there, and his PR department deserves credit for finding yet another way for people to talk about him, even when he’s not playing. Observe:

[[phone rings]]

Newton: Hello?

Favre: Uhh… is this uhh Cam?

Newton: Why, yes it is. To whom am I speaking?

Favre: Uhh, Cam, this is uhh Brett Favre, former N.. uhh… lemme rephrase that… NFL quarterback.

Newton: Jolly good day, Mr. Favre. And to what extent are you requesting my correspondence?

Favre: Uhh, Cam, there is a uhhh lockout. Don’t know if you know that. That means you’re bein’ “locked out,” so to speak. Might prevent you from gettin’ “unlocked” in the near future. It’s tough, uhh, bein’ a rookie quarterback in the NFL. Especially if you don’t get to know your coaches. Don’t really get to know your teammates. Don’t really [...]

  • 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. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    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 […]
