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.

  • 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. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
