Fantasy Guru Daily: 1/31/11

Greetings everyone. The Fantasy Guru Daily is back for the week. And although we are now entering Super Bowl week, the other 30 teams in the NFL have been active as well. Here is a roundup from some of the top news of the past weekend.

Eagles plan to franchise Vick… This should come as no surprise, but it is nice to have some confirmation on it anyway. With Michael Vick approaching free agency, Philadelphia plans to put the franchise tag on its star QB so it can then listen to trade

The Eagles plan to extend their window on a contract for QB Michael Vick by placing the franchise tag on him.

offers for Kevin Kolb (who can’t be moved until a new CBA is in place), in whom many teams could have interest. But even if the Eagles don’t plan to trade Kolb, it makes sense to place the franchise tag on Vick; he had a fantastic season, but he’s injury prone and started to revert back to some of his troubling old tendencies from his Atlanta days. The Eagles likely want to see more development from him before committing a long-term extension.

Flacco angry about Zorn firing… We’ve heard a [...]

Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]

Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything?
