Things are already starting to heat up

Sorry I haven’t been able to post for a few days. We’ve got a serious bug/virus/plague going through my house the last week and I finally succumbed to it. All six of us, including our twins who turned 2 today, have been on death’s door, and it’s been brutal. Whenever I get sick like this, and granted it’s rare, I’m always grateful it doesn’t happen during the season because I’d be absolutely screwed if it did. I think my body knows that by now, and it holds off on taking ill until after the season. Seriously.

On to some NFL items that are jumping off the page to me right now. It’s only mid-February, but things are starting to heat up.

The Carolina Panthers appear to be ready to rid themselves of DeShaun Foster and his $5.8 million cap number for 2008.

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
