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

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
