Camp Updates Pouring In

Don't you just love the start of football season? Training camp news is coming in from all over. Daunte Culpepper has signed with the Raiders, Brady Quinn is pissing off Clevelanders, Terry Glenn has knee surgery, and my husband and I just re-upped our Sports Tier package with Comcast to get the NFL Network. We had it last fall and canceled for the offseason. But with the HOF game on the NFL Network only, we're a couple of suckers willing to pay Comcast a little extra for access.

In other news, later today I will be posting my very own average ranking position spreadsheet. While I do think that ADP (Average Draft Position) has a great value (see this article from FF Toolbox for more info), I also think crazy things happen in mock drafts. Sometimes a mock draft is completely skewed because one dude started an early QB run and panicked everyone else. So as great as ADP is, I also think there's a lot of value in looking at the average ranking position of a player. Rankings are often more thoughtful (someone likely labored over them for hours) and less prone to rash decisions. But more on that in a few hours. Until then, enjoy the first of August.
