10 Things to Watch in Training Camp

Today’s a big day because by this afternoon more than half the team in the league will have had opened training camp. After tomorrow, there will be only a handful of teams yet to.

  • 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.
