Fantasy Guru Daily: 6/20/11

We consider ourselves lucky when there are actually headlines to digest from the weekend in the NFL, and although there is no deal on the horizon just yet, the little bits of news leaking out suggest that teams are getting ready for their abbreviated off-season programs. We can only hope.

Dolphins changing their tune on Henne… Well, they kind of have to considering the lockout, but the Dolphins have gone from “well, Maybe Chad Henne will start” to “yes, he has a good chance to start,” as head coach Tony Sparano insinuated this week. Sparano fed the Miami Herald the usual PR spin regarding his QB, suggesting that his numbers match up well enough with top QBs (they don’t), but he also indicated that Henne must cut down on the dumb turnovers, the throws where he’s trying to make an impossible play happen. Sparano also wants better accuracy down the field – Henne completed just 25% of his 40 passes of 20 yards or more, and his big arm isn’t going to go to much use if all his deep throws are incomplete. Perhaps raw but speedy rookie receiver Edmond Gates will help matters, if Henne actually starts. Anyway, we hope [...]

Although we would much rather be talking about OTAs and minicamps, most of these blogs have centered on the labor situation, and unfortunately that will be the case yet again today. However, we will also update you on player-led workouts from around the league, as some have taken place since Friday’s blog, which detailed what each team has or hasn’t done so far.

Only Newman could bring fair and swift justice to this mess known as "Courtroom Football"

Courts grants motion for full stay of lockout … which gives the league the right to continue to keep the doors closed until their appeal, which will be heard on June 3, is ruled on sometime in the 30-45 days after. However, with this being an expedited process, we could an answer sooner. The motion was granted on the same day the two sides returned to mediation in Minnesota. The league presented a proposal to the players, but it wasn’t considered detailed, instead just providing key points for a jumping off point. NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said, “We obviously hoped that the circuit would not grant the stay and that football would come back for our fans and our [...]

  • 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.

When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
