Fingers firmly crossed

This past week was a pretty tense week for all of us here at FantasyGuru.com. While we remained convinced the 2011 NFL season, at least in some form, was not  in jeopardy, things were looking quite hairy for a moment there mid-week, and also later in the week.

  • MFL10 Review: May 15, 2015 May 15, 2015
    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.
