Fantasy Guru Daily: 7/25/11

Not only is today a great day for America, but the entire football world. What began when the owners opted out of the last CBA back in 2008 ends today when the lockout is lifted thanks to the owners and players agreeing to a new CBA. You make take this moment to high five the nearest person.

What a beautiful image

Players, owners agree to new CBA … pending an approval by the players vote on Monday, although that is considered a formality at this point. The players will participate in a conference call scheduled for 11am ET and the vote is expected to take place when the executive committee is in place. What happens after that has been widely contested. Some, including Jay Glazer, report that facilities can open as early as Tuesday, with trades and draft pick signings occurring as early on Tuesday, and unrestricted free agency beginning Friday at 6pm ET. However, others, most notably Adam Schefter, report that teams can begin talking to free agents and talking trades Monday afternoon with signings beginning Tuesday at noon ET. However, new contracts wouldn’t take effect until August 2 and trades wouldn’t be official until Saturday. Teams would report on [...]

Another Friday has come without a peep from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, but as we wait in this endless lockout, Judge Doty is back in the news, while a Saint WR is recovering from significant knee surgery.

Colston underwent microfracture surgery … Not only did Saint WR Marques Colston have wrist surgery this off-season, but he’s also fighting back from microfracture surgery that repaired cartilage around his right knee. It’s the second time he’s had microfracture surgery, as he had a similar operation performed on his left knee in 2009. The good news is Colston is working out with teammates at Tulane University and said he’s doing everything and just needs to get his conditioning back. Despite the injuries, Colston has missed only one game in the last two seasons, and he’s hit 1000 yards four times, with the one exception being a 2008 season in which he missed five games. Colston had minor arthroscopic surgery after Week Sixteen and had the more significant surgery after the playoffs. Colston joins Robert Meachem as Saint WRs recovering from surgery, as Meachem underwent ankle surgery. Both are working out now with players such as WR Devery Henderson and rookie RB Mark [...]

If you have a draft and are loo […]

  • The latest projections August 30, 2015
    Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game. The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]
