Fantasy Guru Daily: 4/28/11

For the first time in a long while, we have actual football to discuss. It is NFL Draft day everyone! Of course, we also have more courtroom stuff to talk about, and this time, there has been some real progress toward the off-season starting in earnest. We think. Whatever the case, we do have the draft to talk about tonight, and there’s a chance (again, we think) free agency might not be long after. For the breakdown there, we’ll give way to people smarter than us.

No word on whether either side hired Chubby Checker or the poet Virgil to navigate the River Styx through lockout purgatory.

Judge Nelson denies NFL’s request for a stay… Judge Susan Nelson, opining that the “irreparable harm” suffered by the players in a potential long lockout outweighs the damage that would be done to the owners if her ruling to overturn the lockout is not stayed, decided to deny the NFL’s request to stay her lockout-blocking ruling upon appeal.
