Fantasy Guru Daily: 5/5/11

Stay Watch: 2011 continues as we wait to hear if the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis grants the NFL a stay, which would extend the lockout at least another month through the expedited hearing on June 3. For now, we bring you actual football news.

Bryant shows up … After Jerry Jones and Dez Bryant were unable to meet last Friday about Bryant’s recent off-the-field troubles, but Bryant was finally with his teammates Wednesday as the Cowboys conducted workouts. QB Tony Romo said Bryantmoved around well, which, if true, is a good sign for someone who had surgery to repair a fractured fibula five months ago. Bryant missed the first day of informal player-led workouts because of a family issue but said he plans to be there for the rest. Bryant is a big key to the Cowboy offense this season, as if he stays healthy and focused, he has the talent to become a big-time receiver and certainly showed flashes of that last year. Roy Williams clearly isn’t the player he once was, and there’s plenty of room for Bryant to emerge as a playmaker on the outside opposite Miles Austin.

While the NFL and its players return to mediation today, we will instead focus on football. Could McNabb head to Minnesota? Could the London game actually take place in Tampa? We are on the edge of our seats waiting to find out.

A new home for McNabb? … We’ll take any chance we can get to talk free agency/trades, even if it’s all speculation at this point.

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. Arizona and Miami would be among the logical destinations, as [...]

Welcome to another day filled with exciting talk about he lockout. The vow of silence of a few weeks ago seems like ancient history, as the two sides continue to do anything but discuss a new CBA together. With that, we pass along some lockout reading to you.

The commissioner speaks … Roger Goodell appeared on the NFL Network on Tuesday to discuss his view of where things stand. Goodell doesn’t want draft prospects to boycott the draft, saying players who worked hard to get to that point shouldn’t be denied the spotlight on the stage in New York. Of course, as soon as they walk off the stage, they’ll be unable to negotiate contracts or deal with their new teams, and one of the top prospects happens to be involved in the players’ lawsuit. I’m guessing Von Miller won’t be shaking Goodell’s hand on the stage. Goodell went on to say that he’d return to mediation in a heartbeat, although we wished everyone involved had that enthusiasm when they seemed to be quietly sitting on their hands during most of the sessions before speaking up at the last moment. Other than that, Goodell wisely avoided taking shots at the other [...]

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games. The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
