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: 2/4/11

We have reached Super Bowl Friday, meaning we are only two days away from what should be a thrilling Super Bowl. Unfortunately, that also means we are just three days away from a long, long off-season. With that, there is plenty of news to get to today, with non-Super Bowl teams still making headlines.

Sanchez struggled at times recently with a right shoulder injury, but he won't need surgery.

No surgery for Sanchez … Jet QB Mark Sanchez told reporters at the Super Bowl that he does not need surgery on his injured right throwing shoulder. That means he avoids a second straight off-season surgery after he had arthroscopic knee surgery last year. Sanchez said he no longer has swelling and bruising, and after examining results of MRIs, several doctors agreed that surgery is unnecessary. Sanchez originally injured his shoulder in Week Fifteen but played through it and although he looked shaky at times – including several overthrown passes at Indianapolis – he finished strong in the second half at Pittsburgh.

Driver sidelined on Thursday … There’s no need to panic, but Packer WR Donald Driver was sidelined for most of Thursday’s practice. Driver took part in only the early portion of [...]

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 […]
