Fantasy Guru Daily: 2/17/11

It may be all quiet on the CBA front, but that has not stopped teams from weighing their options and preparing for the future. Of course, if you are the Raiders, big contracts get handed out even with no certainty of a 2011 season.

The Giants appear to realize just how valuable Ahmad Bradshaw is after his fantastic 2010 campaign.

Ahmad Bradshaw isn’t going anywhere … according to the Giants, who told the player he’s a “big priority” in their off-season plans. Bradshaw just had ankle surgery, which he said went “great” and interestingly enough it was fumbles, not injury issues, that were a problem for him in 2010. He set career highs in carries (276), rushing yards (1235), TDs (8), receptions (47), and receiving yards (314) despite losing his starting job down the stretch to Brandon Jacobs, who may not be back in 2011 because of his high salary.

Richard Seymour signs extension … with the Raiders for two years worth $30 million. Reportedly, the new deal guarantees $22.5 million with a $7.5 million bonus that kicks in this season. By signing Seymour now, the Raiders don’t have to use the franchise tag on him again, which means the reports of [...]

Fantasy Guru Daily: 2/14/11

We start another week of the off-season with some trade speculation, more labor news, and unfortunately some legal issues for more than one player.

After spending the majority of the 2010 season backing up Michael Vick, Kevin Kolb has made it clear he wants to start somewhere in 2011.

Kevin Kolb would be open to a trade to the Cardinals … after he heard the flattering comments made by WR Larry Fitzgerald. Kolb threw some compliments back at Fitzgerald calling him “one of the best receivers” and a “superstar.” Kolb has said on multiple occasions that he wants to start somewhere in 2011 and hoped the Cardinals came up in trade discussions. With rumors swirling that Michael Vick will be franchised by the Eagles, Kolb could be stuck backing him up yet again, or the Eagles could look to move him for draft picks, although the current CBA situation makes that more difficult.

The NFL and NFLPA are expected to meet … sometime this week according to multiple sources. Negotiations broke down last Wednesday, but the two sides have continued to communicate and are expected to go through with a scheduled meeting during the week. Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke with owners [...]

    I have been working on a massive Post Free Agency Stock Watch, which is aimed at putting all the activity into perspective and conveying to readers how free agency has changed the fantasy landscape for 2014. I use the word “massive” a lot because it describes most of the articles we do. I really want to continue to try to scale back our word counts because I […]
