I'm in the process of amassing overall fantasy draft rankings and creating an average ranking position for the Top 100 players based on expert and not-so-expert opinions. While scouring the web for these rankings, I came across 159 Cheatsheets from Clayton Gray on Footballguys.com. You have to check this out. This guy taken several of the most popular scoring systems and created an individualized ranking for each of the possible starting lineup permutations. So let's say you're in a league where all TDs are worth 6 points, receptions are worth 1 point, passing yards are 1 point per 20 yards and rushing yards are 1 point per 10 yards...and you're lineup is a 2QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1PK, 1DT. Well never fear, here's your ranking. And if you're in a different league that only gives 4 points for TDs, but otherwise all the details are the same - again, no problem, here's that individualized ranking. There are small but important differences between the two. I mean, this took some serious time and energy. I am impressed.

I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this
