Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/30/11

Today is one of those days that can occasionally be expected during a lockout. By that, I mean there is very little football news. Fortunately, when struggling to find news to post on the blog, we learned we can count on Buc CB Aqib Talib to mess up.

Felony warrant issued for Talib… Talib has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon as a result of a March 21 incident outside of a Dallas suburb. Police say Talib and his mother, Okolo, fired a gun at his sister’s boyfriend, then interfered with an emergency phone call from the same location. While we’re obviously in no position to judge Talib outside the

Mark Mangino coached Aqib Talib at Kansas. That is not Talib on the right.

court of law, he has been in trouble before and the Buccaneers have to seriously consider cutting ties with him. That’s easier said than done, however; Talib is certainly one of the top young CBs in the NFL, and it’s such a difficult position to get consistent play from. Because of the labor situation, the Bucs didn’t say much regarding the incident, other than that they were “deeply troubled.” But there’s no doubt the Bucs [...]

Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/7/11

Roster moves are done for the time being, as all eyes are on the ongoing CBA talks. Even though negotiations have been extended, the deadline for roster moves passed last Friday, which has put the league at a standstill until a new deal is reached, which will hopefully happen this week.

Commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear that communication through mediation and negotiation is better than going to litigation.

NFL, NFLPA resume talks … on Monday afternoon after agreeing to an extension last Friday. The two sides were expected to use the weekend to figure out their plans of action heading into this week’s talks. While an extension of talks came down to the two sides agreeing to seven more days of mediation, teams are no longer allowed to make any roster moves with the CBA considered expired. Multiple reports have suggested the sides are far apart on revenue splits, but that they’ve also made significant progress in the last two days of talks compared to the little that was accomplished in the two years leading up to the deadline. Before the sides agreed to an extension last Thursday, the NFLPA was apparently just minutes away from decertifying, which would have [...]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
