Draft Day is Ever So Close

My first draft of the season is coming up this Sunday. Unfortunately I will be on an airplane during the draft and a friend is going to draft on my behalf. I trust this guy immensely but have furiously been creating an overall ranking and positional rankings for my buddy to refer to during the draft. I'm thinking that I will probably post those rankings sometime next week after I am back in town. So if you're interested, keep your eyes peeled for those rankings in about a week.

Until then I give you FFToolbox's updated rankings for both offense, team defenses, and individual defensive players. It's the whole kit and caboodle, my friends. The Huddle also just updated their draft kit yesterday and while some of their content isn't free, a good chunk of it is. The Huddle also has an interesting article that provides some draft strategy insight called Drafting from the Basement for those of us who end up without one of the top picks.

In other fantasy news, check out Fanball.com's Running the Wrong Way for the latest on Tennessee's RB melee and its fantasy implications. Or CBS Sportsline's Skinny's Much Changed for Titans' White. [photo: US Presswire]

Is your head spinning with rankings, names, and numbers? If you need a little bit of a breather from all this current fantasy talk, read Peter King's My All-Future Team where he lists some of his favorite players for his 2012 fantasy team. Then again, if you need a breather from fantasy football info, I think you're in the wrong place.

Sorry you can't be at the draft! Look forward to smacking you around this season. In a fantasy football playful way. Not a guy beating up a girl way. Have a safe trip!
Librarian...what is your email, I have lots of questions and you seem to do a good job with the research?
Christopher - my email is fflibrarian at gmail.com - I'll keep my eyes open for an e-mail from you...and hope I can be of help.

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

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
