Fantasy Guru Daily: 7/13/11

Wednesday is yet another big day in labor talks as things heat up with players and owners once again in New York, and we also head to Denver, San Francisco, and Washington for some football talk.

Is a John Fox-DeAngelo Williams reunion on the horizon in Denver?

Fox wants a running back … One of the biggest offensive shifts in the league could come in Denver, where the wide-open passing attack of Josh McDaniels will give way to John Fox’s multi-RB approach. OC Mike McCoy is a holdover from the previous staff, but he has experience under Fox and will call the plays. Although the Broncos drafted Knowshon Moreno with the 12th overall pick just two years ago, Fox’s #1 priority is to bring in a free agent RB with Moreno potentially moving into more of a third-down role. It’s a move we agree with, because Moreno isn’t really equipped to be the centerpiece of an offense. He can put up decent production, but he’s limited with a lack of fluidity as a runner. Among the free agent RBs, the obvious name is DeAngelo Williams, who had a lot of success with Fox in Carolina, rushing for 1000 yards in back-to-back [...]

Is Michael Crabtree hurt or healthy? Is the lockout almost over or is there still a lot of work to be done? Is Carson Palmer finished in Cincinnati? We have a lot of questions with few concrete answers.

Crabtree says he’s fine … On Tuesday, the Sacramento Bee reported that 49er WR Michael Crabtree has been bothered by his left foot, which he had surgery on in 2009. Crabtree has sat out workouts for much of the Alex Smith-led sessions, but on Wednesday, he told reporters that everything was fine. And hey! Here’s Crabtree putting on shoes. Crabtree has caught some passes during workouts, and 49er OT Joe Staley stuck up for the receiver. Reporters have been allowed to watch only 30 minutes and haven’t seen Crabtree do much, but he’s insisted that he’s been active. So, if Crabtree is feeling even the slightest bit of discomfort, it probably isn’t a bad thing that he’s taking it easy during informal workouts. We really have no idea how significant the discomfort is though, and this is just one more story that makes us look forward to real football in September.

While the NFL and its players return to mediation today, we will instead focus on football. Could McNabb head to Minnesota? Could the London game actually take place in Tampa? We are on the edge of our seats waiting to find out.

A new home for McNabb? … We’ll take any chance we can get to talk free agency/trades, even if it’s all speculation at this point.

A young Brett Favre is not walking through the Metrodome door. Could it be McNabb's turn?

Everyone’s sick of the understandable but tiring “all lockout, all the time” NFL news cycle, so let’s take some time to speculate on the future of Donovan McNabb. A year ago, the long-time Eagle QB was surprisingly dealt within the division to the Redskins to make room for Kevin Kolb. Well, now Kolb might be on his way out of Philly, Michael Vick is the new star, and McNabb fell behind Rex Grossman of all people in Washington. It’s hard to imagine McNabb will return to Washington next season, and given the unsettled QB situations across the NFL, he should have plenty of suitors despite a lousy 2010 season. Arizona and Miami would be among the logical destinations, as [...]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]

  • 30 slam-dunk fantasy starters for the playoffs December 2, 2014
    Here is a list of 30 no-brainer starters for the fantasy playoffs. I would imagine that 95% of fantasy players (or more) should start these players the next 2-3 weeks (if healthy) no matter what. I did leave several high-end options off the list (like the Bear WRs) due to some recent issues and lack of production. Note: These are listed by position, and in n […]
