Last night was my quick draft to build onto my dynasty team and I am quite pleased with the players I got. I was drafting 3rd in 2 rounds of a non-serpentine draft (yes, that means my team performed unacceptably last season) and picked up Calvin Johnson and Greg Olsen. I am quite pleased with that outcome. I was tempted to pick up Brian Leonard, the backup RB in St. Louis but went with Olsen instead. There's always time to pick up Leonard later in the season if he still looks promising.
Onto the fantasy smörgåsbord for the week (Blogger just provided me with those awesome diacritics for smörgåsbord - love it):
- KFFL's ADP (average draft position) rankings - you can also select the ADP by PPR (points per reception) or IDP (individual defensive players) if your league rolls that way. I have an draft including IDPs coming up this weekend so I was interested to note they have the first defender, Shawne Merriman, with an ADP of 77.90.
- KFFL also has two pretty interesting articles, Assessing the Second-Tier Quarterbacks and IDP: Overvalued Players. And wait, one more helpful draft supplement from KFFL: Running Back Handcuff Chart.
- AskTheCommish provides us with a list of deep sleepers [note there is a typo in there where they wrote "learn who could be in the 2005 Deep Sleeper class" - don't worry, they really mean 2007] - some of these guys are backups and some are just overlooked starters.
- And finally, NFLFreaks.com are back for the season; they sure took their time in returning from the offseason but I'm happy to provide links to their cheatsheets: QB rankings, RB rankings, WR rankings, TE rankings, K rankings, DST rankings.
