Weighing in on something…

Yahoo! Sports reported yesterday that Titan RB LenDale White weighed over 260 pounds earlier this month at the start of the team’s off-season conditioning program.

I have mentioned several times how White is nowhere near being ready to be their guy, but this is ridiculous. This guy was considered a top-15 overall pick right after the national championship game last year, yet concerns about his weight, among other things, caused his stock to drop. The Titans couldn’t pass on him in the 2nd, but that’s still a big drop from where he was projected to go right after his college career ended.

If you’re loo […]

The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • 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 […]
