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.

    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?

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups.
