Fantasy Guru Daily: 5/3/11

After a flurry of noteworthy news items over the weekend, we’re left scrambling for scraps on Tuesday. It is actually a relief that there are no lockout updates to write about today, even though a major one (a decision on a stay pending appeal) is expected this week. Until then, we’ll get down with some usual maintenance.

UFL draft takes place on Twitter… Usually, this isn’t even worth mentioning, but the UFL held its draft entirely on Twitter last night. That’s pretty cool for about 15 seconds, until you realize that it’s the UFL. However, there is a little bit extra drama this year: guys who would typically be undrafted NFL free agents haven’t been able to sign with teams yet, and the UFL could provide them an interesting opportunity to show their stuff or at least have some sort of financial security for the next year. But even if the NFL season goes off without a hitch, the UFL wants to position itself as a unique opportunity for players like Boston College’s Mark Herzlich: play in the UFL and hone skills, or go to the NFL, be a camp body, and have a big chance of getting cut.

    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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
