Replacing the Guru!

Postby knobhoosier » Thu Jul 18, 2019 10:03 am

Guys...As you can see from my profile. I'm a newbie to the site. If you recognized my subject line, you'll know I'm referring to John Hansen, the founder of Fantasy Guru. I was a member for 8 years until John recently announced that he has left the company. So obviously, I'm looking for a new trusted source to get my fantasy information from. I stumbled on the DLF site last year and I do have to admit, they cover the rookies much better than most. That's important to me as I'm in a true rookie draft only dynasty league where we only draft rookies year after year. Jeff H. seems to be a great guy and very knowledgeable and seems very responsive to tweets, messages etc.

The one thing I'm looking to replace is a weekly lineup advice section or a weekly ranking of matchups of sorts. Am I just missing it on the DLF site? If it is not available, can you provide a trusted source for such a feature?

Thanks!

This is where you can go for lineup advice during the season.

Is that sub forum active during the season (of course it isn’t right now)?

What other resources do you DLFers use to make lineup decisions?

This is by far my Achilles heel in fantasy. I consistently put together strong, deep teams, and start the wrong guys.
my main league, half PPR, all TDs 6, -4 for INT
14 team
start 1QB, 1RB, 2WR, 1TE, 2WRT. Roster 15, 2 IR. keep 10 every year (must keep one each pos) *transitioning to more keepers/full dyno over a couple years

QB: Wilson, Carr
RB: E Elliot, D Henry, M Ingram, R Armstead, M Brown, R Mostert
WR. O. Beckham, J Smith-Schuster, M Thomas, P Williams
TE. T Kelce, D Goedert

2020 picks: three 1sts, three 3rds
(Project 1 top 3, one early-mid, one mid-late)
2021: two 1sts, three 2s, 3, two 4s
2022: three 1sts, 2nd, 3rd, 5th

I don't use lineup advice very much, but when I do I just browse the Rotoworld rankings to see if anything there sticks out. I just don't want to miss any injuries or great matchups.

It's not the most active forum, but you might get a few responses. I've never asked for advice, but will sometimes go to there to give it.

For weekly lineups I use the fantasy fooballers. Its free and they are generally accurate.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the suggestions and I'll give them a shot. But...maybe there's no such thing as "Replacing The Guru"! Ha...I too listen to him daily on Sirius XM and I'm sure he'll have some advice during the season, but it won't be the same as what I was used to.

I believe that the DLF Writers answer lineup questions weekly during the season but I could be mistaken ...

The Guru still has a podcast with Greg Cosell? What is it called?

Nobody can replace the Guru. He sometimes had very different view of players than what a lot of the consensus is around here.
There is no mention of his leaving on the website, which I thought was shady and very misleading.

None of these lineup advice sites compared to what what was on the fantasy guru website. They did weekly rankings of players, with stay projections.
