Top-25 stories to follow once the lockout is lifted

It looks like this lockout is going to end no later than the end of the month, so it is time to hit the books and prepare for the mayhem that will be ensuing. The following are the top-25 stories I’ll be following once the lockout is lifted. These only cover the skill positions and offensive production, which just goes to show how much uncertainty overall there is in the league right now.

If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

  • 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.
