Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/24/11

Apparently fans are not the only ones bored with lockout news, as coaches are talking and giving some tidbits about their teams for the 2011 season. Meanwhile, players like Chad Ochocinco have apparently gotten sick of football altogether.

Everybody loves Todd Haley … Perhaps no coach has angered fantasy owners more than the Chiefs’ Todd Haley, who utilized

Chief HC Todd Haley enjoys an evil laugh as fantasy owners complain about his use of Jamaal Charles.

the combination of Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles to lead the NFL’s #1 rushing offense in 2010 but frustrated fans with the inconsistency of Charles’ involvement and his unwillingness to publically praise the star RB. Well, naturally, Haley was effusive in his praise of Jones and confirmed that the 32-year-old will be back on the Chiefs in 2011. Said Haley: “He’s the epitome of the same guy every day. We’ve got a little plan for Thomas that I’m excited about getting to. I’m excited to have Thomas back. He’s a big part of what we’re doing.” I’m sure anyone who owns Charles in a keeper league is thrilled. It makes perfect sense to use a rotation, as Charles is not suited to carry the ball 20+ [...]

Matt’s Migraines

As part of my draft preparation every year, I pull out my trusty red Sharpie to mark off players I want absolutely nothing to do with under any circumstances. Names in recent years I’ve avoided include Larry Johnson, Shaun Alexander, Marion Barber, and Clinton Portis even if they were considered 1st or 2nd round picks. The argument can be made that some players on this list are worth drafting based on the value you can get from them, but we’ve already done that article (see big picture of Joe Flacco on the home page). We’ll call this group “Matt’s Migraines” because that’s what I get when I think of how bad I’ve been burned by risky picks, especially in the early rounds. I’ll be adding to this group throughout the Summer, but for now here’s a few guys I’ll be avoiding come draft time.

Ronnie Brown (RB, Mia) – Look, we know how talented this guy is, but he’s played a full season just once in the last four years and just 32 games over the last three. Whether it was the torn ACL in 2007 or last year’s Lisfranc foot problem that continues to plague him this off-season, Brown just [...]

  • 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 […]
