Welcome to the FantasyGuru Blog!

Here it is folks, FantasyGuru.com’s entry into the blogosphere.

Almost ten years ago, when I wrote a column for a magazine in another industry, I wrote about these things called “blogs” and how they could be the next big thing on the Internet – so it’s not like I’m not familiar. In a way, I’ve had a blog for a while in the whole site, and especially in my Hansen on Strategy in-season column.

I didn’t go ahead with a full blog before because I think they are a bit egotistical. I don’t really expect people to be terribly interested in my opinions – even though they’re usually correct.

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
