Fantasy Guru Daily: 5/20/11

This may be surprising, but there is not really much to talk about today when it comes to news from around the league. I blame the rain. Oh, and the lockout. Last Friday, we took a look at the player-led workouts from around the league, so today we’ll update you on some of those teams.

Baltimore Ravens – Next week, at a workout organized by WR Derrick Mason, at least 20 Ravens will be together at Towson University from May 24-26. Mason said the focus was going to be on conditioning, and that there wouldn’t be any contact.

Buffalo Bills – About 30 Bill players will meet on Monday for what is expected to be a week-long set of workouts in Buffalo. The workouts were set up by veterans such as LB Andra Davis and S George Wilson with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to attend. Fitzpatrick held a small passing camp near his home in Arizona last month.

Chicago Bears – After backup QB Caleb Hanie recently said there were no plans for player-led workouts, starter Jay Cutler said he’s been talking with WRs and RBs to organize a passing camp.

Denver Broncos – QB Tim Tebow, who had [...]

Although we would much rather be talking about OTAs and minicamps, most of these blogs have centered on the labor situation, and unfortunately that will be the case yet again today. However, we will also update you on player-led workouts from around the league, as some have taken place since Friday’s blog, which detailed what each team has or hasn’t done so far.

Only Newman could bring fair and swift justice to this mess known as "Courtroom Football"

Courts grants motion for full stay of lockout … which gives the league the right to continue to keep the doors closed until their appeal, which will be heard on June 3, is ruled on sometime in the 30-45 days after. However, with this being an expedited process, we could an answer sooner. The motion was granted on the same day the two sides returned to mediation in Minnesota. The league presented a proposal to the players, but it wasn’t considered detailed, instead just providing key points for a jumping off point. NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said, “We obviously hoped that the circuit would not grant the stay and that football would come back for our fans and our [...]

If so, he’ll likely settle in as a weekly starter if he hasn’t al […]

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out? There’s some value in the #2 spot, but it’s a revolving door with Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Does Owen Daniels continue to be a large factor? He should because he’s a huge part of this passing […]

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL? He’s been basically getting to the perimeter and popping off some longer runs, but he’s also run pretty well inside. He moves very well. Can Allen Robinson continue to produce? He just missed a […]
