Free Agency: It’s not “all good”

As I hope you’ve noticed, we’ve covered the key (and some not-so-very key) free agent moves up until this point. I’ve been busy following and analyzing all of that, so I haven’t done much blogging. Things are slowing down, so I have a topic to cover here.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at Maybe it’s because I never […]
