Fantasy Guru Daily: 7/7/11

We have typically tried to avoid the news coming out of labor talks in recent weeks, but there is no denying Thursday is a big day when it comes to taking the next (and hopefully final) step in getting a deal done.

We all may love New York if it become the site of a CBA agreement.

Players, owners to rejoin talks … on Thursday in New York. After two days in which the lawyers from both sides met to get some details of a possible agreement hammered out, the focus now shifts back to the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, and head of NFLPA, DeMaurice Smith, as well as the players and owners who will meet for the first time since last Friday in Minneapolis. It was reported that steps were taken this week to get a deal done, but the largest issue, the revenue split, has apparently not been fully ironed out. One of the parts of that revenue split are the benefits for retired players, and the group representing them has filed a lawsuit to halt negotiations because they feel the active players are not doing a proper job representing them.

If you have a draft and are loo […]

  • The latest projections August 30, 2015

  • 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.
