Stability will be a key in 2011

One of items included in my annual Lessons Learned article dealt with continuity and how important it is for NFL teams and thus, fantasy.

It looks like it is going to be even more important in 2011. Obviously, we don’t know where the labor talks are going to go in the next few months, but we do know things are looking a little grim right now, at least in terms of getting a deal done in the early-to-mid spring.

If no deal is done for a few months, teams are going to be absolutely scrambling. Even worse, there are a ton of coaching and coordinator changes, so there will be little stability, more uncertainty, and hardly any continuity.

So right now, I’m fully prepared to move teams that will have continuity and stability on their side in 2011 to the top of the fantasy pecking order, if they’re not there already. Players from the following teams will be more desirable than ever.

    The long-rumored and predicted rule change in the NFL passed at the owners’ meetings this week – extra points are officially moving from the two-yard line to the 15, changing them from the near-automatic equivalent of a 19-yard field goal to a 33-yard kick. If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague.
