Fantasy Guru Daily: 6/22/11

We are finally getting good news on the labor front, and details are starting to emerge about what a new CBA could like it. Get ready for a hectic time in fantasy football, as free agency could be just a few weeks away.

Free agency on the horizon? … The owners’ expected extended stay in Chicago ended up lasting only one day, but just about all the news coming out of their meetings was positive.

A young Brett Favre is not walking through the Metrodome door. Could it be McNabb's turn?

Everyone’s sick of the understandable but tiring “all lockout, all the time” NFL news cycle, so let’s take some time to speculate on the future of Donovan McNabb. A year ago, the long-time Eagle QB was surprisingly dealt within the division to the Redskins to make room for Kevin Kolb. Well, now Kolb might be on his way out of Philly, Michael Vick is the new star, and McNabb fell behind Rex Grossman of all people in Washington. It’s hard to imagine McNabb will return to Washington next season, and given the unsettled QB situations across the NFL, he should have plenty of suitors despite a lousy 2010 season.
