Fantasy Guru Daily: 4/29/11

Thursday may have been the best day to be a football fan since the season ended, as we not only found out that the league was re-opening their doors to players, but saw one hell of a first round in this year’s draft. While the majority of picks were safe, we did see a few trades and a few shockers that shook things up significantly.

While Cam Newton may need some time to develop, fear not Panther fans, Jimmy Clausen was back to work this morning.

League allows players to return to work … as of 8 a.m. ET Friday morning. With Judge Susan Nelson ruling that the lockout was illegal and refusing to grant a stay, it took some time for the league to work out the details before they re-opened the doors to the players. Teams had been told to turn away players who reported over the last three days, but welcomed them in this morning with reports of the Panthers and Titan players already at team facilities. Team workouts have already been scheduled by the Lions (OTAs on Wednesday) and Bears (rookie camp next weekend). Players reporting for workouts will get credit towards team bonuses, which was a [...]

    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week.

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). 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 […]
