29 Rounds of Hell

As you may know from reading this blog, I’m heading on vacation this week, starting tomorrow. This is a big deal since it’s the first time I’ve taken one in July for many, many years. That’s in part because I’ve been busy coaching or watching my oldest son in many baseball tourneys in June and July, but also because I’m usually swimming in work. But this year, I’m going to recharge the batteries by taking a week off with the family. So it’s been a hectic week, as I’ve tried to get as much done as I can knowing I won’t be working (at least too much) until 7/21. I have a ton of personal stuff going on too with some construction on the house, office stuff, etc.

If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. 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 […]
