Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/29/11

We are just eight days away from the big April 6 court date, so for now, we bring you news of another lawsuit, this one filed by retired players, and a football guarantee from an owner.

Retired Holmes still a fantasy stud? … It wasn’t too long ago that former Chief RB Priest Holmes was a fantasy beast, like in 2004 when he averaged 24.7 FPG – 5.6 more than the next best RB Shaun Alexander. Now, Holmes, along with former players such as Hall of Fame DE Carl Eller, could help fantasy football again by filing a federal class action, antitrust lawsuit against the NFL, as Yahoo! Sports reports. We’d recommend reading Dan Wetzel’s story for yourself, but the most important point is that Eller v. NFL also covers draft prospects, as they are not represented by the NFLPA. Essentially, the suit argues that draft prospects were not involved in decertification but are being negatively affected by the lockout.

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 […]

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]
