2008 Free Agency Primer

This coming year doesn’t look like a great Free Agent class, but things could get interesting with a few key restricted guys, such as QB Derek Anderson, and we could see a pair of quality wideouts switching teams. And then, of course, we’ll likely see some surprise players emerge later this year as free agents.

For now, here’s my top-10 Unrestricted Free Agents for 2008, with a complete list of the UFAs and RFAs this year.

    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list.

  • 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 […]
