Burning Questions

I have been buried with other things, namely our player profiles, and I also did manage to squeeze a family vacation in late last month, so I have neglected this blog (again). My contributions here will be sporadic, but I’m going to try to pop on here with random thoughts here and there.

Today’s post isn’t exactly a random because we’re gearing up for the preseason, and I wanted to post up an item that deals with some of the burning questions I have entering camps. I narrowed it down to ten questions, which wasn’t easy, but I’ve added some more at the end that I didn’t delve into in depth.

Here’s what I got for the top 10, though.

Will Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles go down as values or busts?

There’s no question fantasy owners need to temper expectations, especially for Peterson, whose injury occurred on 12/24, whereas Charles happened on 9/18, so Charles has three months on AP in terms of his recovery time.

    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. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
