Making room for an NFL Film Room

As I hope subscribers can see, we are once again pushing hard to improve our offerings and our overall service, and I have another announcement regarding that endeavor today.

The biggest issue we face during the regular season is that there are only seven days in a week. We produce so much content in terms of early-week review of the big picture, and then we quickly need to turn our attention to the upcoming week. Some/most people want us to do that while we’re still in review mode on Monday and Tuesday.

At times, it can become unmanageable.

We crank out so much in terms of written words, but one thing I believe is lost on people is that we also have to, you know, watch the games. We’re all obviously watching on Sundays as the action unfolds, but we’re obviously all over the place switching from game-to-game, so we also need to sit down and watch each game early in the week. That’s time consuming, and it’s a significant thing on our plates each week. We typically break the games up among the staff, but it’s not easy to get a clear and comprehensive overview of the week that was, and again […]

10 Training Camp Questions

More often than not, the answers to each upcoming season’s burning questions wind up being important keys to the success of a fantasy draft, so they’re worth exploring in depth. 2014 seems to be a little more straightforward than 2013, but there are still some critical situations that need to be placed under the microscope. Here’s my top-10.

Is it time to pass on Andre Johnson?
The ultimate volume receiver, Johnson’s been in the top-5 in WR targets the last four times he’s played all 16 games, including the last two seasons. And dating back to 2006, Johnson’s recorded 100+ catches every season he’s played 16 games (he’s done it five times, including the last two seasons). But it might be time to let someone else draft him. Johnson is unhappy with his contract, and probably with the direction of the Texans, who are breaking in a new head coach and a

It’s hard to completely write off a future Hall of Famer, but Andre Johnson is certainly looking less appealing than usual in 2014

new QB. A trade is unlikely, since that would cost the team $11.96 million in dead money. He also has three years and $34.5 million left on his […]

Be master of your fantasy matchup domain

As I hope most subscribers fully comprehend, I am on a never-ending mission to improve FantasyGuru.com as a service. There is no end to this pursuit; it’s a constantly evolving endeavor that for me will only conclude when I’m no longer with the site, which, thanks in large part to the surprise arrival of twins in 2006 for my wife and me, won’t be happening any time soon.

We’re going to put Greg Cosell’s elite knowledge of matchups to more use than ever in 2014.

As we enter our 20th season of publishing, I’m proud of the fact that our subscription price has not gone up in 19 years – and the fact that the service and all it entails is light years away from where it was in the 90s, when my analysis at times was limited to statements like “He’ll be okay.” I happened to notice that line of riveting analysis in a hard-copy newsletter I produced in 1996, and it prompted me to literally LOL.

Full disclosure: I went back and looked at the boxscore from that week and he actually was more than “okay,” rushing for 101/1 and adding 3/71 in the passing game.

The point is that we’ve […]

  • 2015 SiriusXM PPR Hosts’ League Draft Review, and a Thought on Zero RB August 27, 2015
    We recently received an email to the website asking us our personal feelings of the so-called “Zero RB” strategy that’s popped up in fantasy circles, but only seems to have exploded in recent years. As an avid fantasy player, I don’t subscribe to just one method of roster construction, but instead remain open to using […]
