Big day today in NFL Lockout Watch 2011.
Players should be asked to vote today on the new CBA and, if they approve, it will be sent to the owners to vote tomorrow. It sounds like both sides are amenable to this deal so it should get done.
Fingers still crossed.
One thing this means is that the free agency period is getting close, and it is going to be a feeding frenzy. Like chumming the water for sharks. While it may be a little hard to keep up with as it unfolds (I suggest following along on Twitter), it is going to be a great time for football fans.
From a fantasy perspective, there are a few players in particular to keep an eye on when the free agent signing period begins. We broke them down, position-by-position, earlier this month:
Here are today’s great reads:
- Another reason to hope the NFL lockout ends today: Free chicken wings from Buffalo Wild Wings. You know that place, along with a lot of other sports’ bars, are hoping this lockout ends as soon as possible. [Fantasy Football Fools]
- Larry Fitzgerald owners in dynasty and keeper formats can officially begin salivating. It looks like Kevin Kolb to Arizona is a real possibility. One rumored deal has the Cardinals sending Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for Kolb straight-up. [ProFootballTalk]
- More running back rankings for the 2011 fantasy football season. Finally saw one the other day with Adrian Peterson on top, but these have Arian Foster. I will start digging a little deeper soon, but one question I am going to have for sure: Why are we ranking Jamaal Charles so high??? [RazzBall]
- Sleepers for the 2011 fantasy football season. I really like the running backs on this list. Bernard Scott has been on my sleeper list too long, though, so he probably will not be on any of my teams again this year. Tired of waiting! [National Football Post]
