Greene with Envy

We’re obviously still very early in the off-season process, but there’s going to be a lot for us to digest in the coming weeks and over the next two months. For now, I’m personally getting some behind-the-scenes stuff done, as well as taking on the depressing task of doing my taxes.

As for the rookies, the combine is just wrapping up and we’re in the process of gathering our information and intelligence on this year’s class. We’ll need a couple more weeks to scout the players out, and then we’ll break out our Pre-Draft Rookie Report.

Next week, however, things will start to heat up with free agency, and we’ll be covering that extensively. Once the first wave is done, we’ll reshape the dynasty and keeper league landscape for those in keeper leagues.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year.
