Fantasy Fuel for a Monday

So last week I complained about the lack of TE rankings/postings out there and what do I immediately find? Another TE article, this time from FFToday.com - as part of their Building a Dynasty series they include both the long term and short term value as well as job security for each of their top 10 TEs [Antonio Gates photo: Robert Hanashiro, USA Today].

With the football season creeping closer every day, many drafters are putting the polish on their own personalized rankings...and others are just thinking about the draft for the first time this year. No problem - either way, check out FantasySharks.com's More Bang For Your Buck. They've looked at players who can be taken a little later in the draft and still produce the fantasy numbers you need - who wouldn't want advice like this? Exactly. So we've got more - ProFantasySports.com's Undervalued Players to Draft also takes you through a list of middle or late round draft picks that just might put up some big numbers.

Finally - another Offensive Line Ranking. These are not easy to find, my football fiends. In an earlier posting, I linked to Rotoworld's Going on the Offensive and was left wanting more o-line rankings. It merely whetted the o-line appetite. Fortunately, FootballDocs stepped up to the plate and created 2007's projected offensive line rankings; unfortunately, they are not all available for free. You can see the first three teams but then are requested to pay for the rest. I just don't roll that way. But for those that do, there appear to be separate pass blocking rankings, run blocking rankings, and then an in-depth ranking.

And because I'd rather close on a here's-free-fantasy-information note, click here for some helpful bye week suggestions from CBS Sportsline for your QB and RB fillers when your "stud workhorses" are on bye.

Good stuff as always

TE's don't get enough respect in Fantasy circles. I make sure I get a top guy because it puts you at an instant matchup advantage over the guy who waited and was stuck with Leonard Pope.

Thanks for the plug BTW ;) (TINO)

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
