I am up against it now

I’ m staring a massive magazine deadline squarely in the face right now, so I don’t have any time to post anything relevent here. I think the biggest challenge with the magazine is to get so much content up-to-date. We have over 100,000 words written, probably way more, but it’s quite another thing for those words to be insightful, accurate, and timely, and that’s what I’m dealing with right now.

  • 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.
