A Look at Player-led Workouts

This is typically the time of year when we are closely monitoring OTAs and voluntary minicamps looking for nuggets to put in our team reports. With the lockout still in effect, the best we can do is keep an eye on the player-led workouts taking place across the league. Not all the workouts are made public, so please don’t consider this the definitive list of what’s going on with every player. However, we’ve done our best to give you an update of what players are doing on their own.

Arizona Cardinals – WR Larry Fitzgerald took the lead once again, organizing workouts at Arizona State University earlier this month, which included 20 players from various teams including Cardinal QBs John Skelton, Max Hall, and Richard Bartel in addition to WRs Steve Breaston, Stephen Williams, Max Komar, and 2011 7th-round pick DeMarco Sampson. Sampson did miss some drills due to conditioning issues, but his speed and hands were noted by Skelton, who also complemented Sampson on his route running. WR Early Doucet is still rehabbing from sports hernia surgery, and did not want to risk doing too much, so he skipped the Fitzgerald-led workouts.  The workouts, which are considered low-key, also [...]

Fantasy Guru Daily: 5/13/11

Another Friday has come without a peep from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, but as we wait in this endless lockout, Judge Doty is back in the news, while a Saint WR is recovering from significant knee surgery.

Colston underwent microfracture surgery … Not only did Saint WR Marques Colston have wrist surgery this off-season, but he’s also fighting back from microfracture surgery that repaired cartilage around his right knee. It’s the second time he’s had microfracture surgery, as he had a similar operation performed on his left knee in 2009. The good news is Colston is working out with teammates at Tulane University and said he’s doing everything and just needs to get his conditioning back. Despite the injuries, Colston has missed only one game in the last two seasons, and he’s hit 1000 yards four times, with the one exception being a 2008 season in which he missed five games. Colston had minor arthroscopic surgery after Week Sixteen and had the more significant surgery after the playoffs. Colston joins Robert Meachem as Saint WRs recovering from surgery, as Meachem underwent ankle surgery. Both are working out now with players such as WR Devery Henderson and rookie RB Mark [...]

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games. The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
