McNabb’s body language will say it all

I think I’ve got a handle on Donovan McNabb and whether or not he’ll play well in an upcoming season. Over the last 3-4 years I’ve noticed that he tips us off with his body language. He started doing this, I think, in Terrell Owens’ first season in Philly. McNabb’s body language that summer indicated a very comfortable and confident QB, and he went on to have a terrific fantasy season.

The next year, 2006, I was very curious as to how he would look and play with T.O. gone, so I once again inspected his body language on the field in the preseason. At this time last year, I wasn’t as high on McNabb as I wound up being later in the summer because I hadn’t yet seen him and his B.L. post-Owens.

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 […]
