Fantasy Guru Daily: 6/3/11

Looks like the labor talks have picked up once again, so we will be taking a look at the latest developments as the two sides meet in court again today. Also, we take a look at possible landing spots for the soon-to-be-released Plaxico Burress.

Settlement talks? So you're telling me there's a chance!

NFL, NFLPA hold settlement talks … for three days this week in advance of Friday’s lockout hearing in St. Louis. As we discussed yesterday, the “secret” meetings took place just outside Chicago from Tuesday-Thursday, but the details of those talks became much clearer upon completion. In addition to NFLPA head De Maurice Smith and commissioner Roger Goodell, those attending included owners, players, and Judge Arthur Boylan, although his role was different from what it was during mediation. Speaking of mediation, sessions that were set to resume next week were cancelled by Boylan due to the current talks centering around a settlement, which he wants to keep confidential.

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    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?

Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
