Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/25/11

There is really nothing more to say. If you have not heard about the latest doom and gloom story of the lockout this week, just know that it comes from an unusual place. It is getting a lot of play, but, uh… well, you’ll see. In the meantime, ya gotta get down on Friday!

Labor rhetoric: FUN FUN FUN FUN

Boston columnist hears the scuttlebutt… That’s pretty much the best term I can use for it. Longtime Boston writer Ron Borges gives us our latest apocalypse prophecy, setting the scene with something he overheard from whom he thinks to be NFL lawyer Bob Batterman. Where did Borges overhear Batterman say we’re in for a “long battle?” Well, while he was taking a crap of course! Not doubting Borges’ reporting… but… yeah. Remember, there can be a long court battle while football continues, hinging on a Minnesota court ruling on April 6. In other words, it’s still not time to lose your $#!+ over what a guy heard in the commode.

Labor rhetoric: belongs here

Fantasy Guru Daily: 2/22/11

Labor talks continue, the NFL Scouting Combine starts on Wednesday, and some interesting player movement is taking place and we are covering it all in the latest edition of the Fantasy Guru Daily.

McGahee has become expendable now that Ray Rice has emerged as one of the best backs in football.

Ravens expected to cut Willis McGahee … after the back had spent the last four seasons in Baltimore. With McGahee playing a smaller role compared to starter RB Ray Rice, it really doesn’t make much sense to keep the eight-year veteran around when he’s due to make $6 million in 2011. McGahee, 29, played in 15 games last season, rushing just 100 times for 380 yards and 5 TDs. His last 1000-yard season (1207 in 2007) came a year before the Ravens drafted Rice and McGahee hasn’t topped 170 carries since Rice joined the team. We expect McGahee to look for a team that will give him a more even split in carries since he still has something left in the tank.

St. Louis trying to re-sign Mark Clayton … and will continue to do so even a new deal can’t be worked out before the CBA expires. The Ravens [...]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. 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 […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. 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 […]
