Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/10/11

Welcome to the CBA Daily! While not a lot of positive news have come from talks taking place this week, we have been careful not to overreact knowing that the situation looked grim just one week ago before the sides agreed to two extensions.

NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith is still looking for more financial information from the league.

Day 14 of mediation is in the books … and while the two sides continue to squabble over the amount of financial data released by the league, we did get some interesting tidbits from NFLPA executive DeMaurice Smith. He noted that the league lowered the amount of addition revenues taken off the top from $1 billion to $800 million, although he said that number is still too high because of the lack of financial information needed to agree to that number. As part of the last CBA, the NFL received $1 billion off the top, so they’re now looking for $1.8 billion in their latest proposal. While the idea of an 18-game season was never something the NFLPA seemed very interested in, it has been a topic that’s remained part of the negotiations although Smith revealed that the league never formally proposed [...]

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.

  • 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 […]
