HOF Game Day

Happy Hall of Fame Game Day. So the regular season is still several weeks away, yes. But today, my friends, is the first football game of the season. I know this is not a big game for most of us but it signifies the start of football season. I'm sitting here watching the Ravens and Redskins scrimmage on the NFL Network (and Brian Billick who is wearing a ridiculous straw hat) and feeling that familiar thrill of watching football again. It has been a long 6 months without football so for now, scrimmages and HOF games will do just fine, thank you.

So onto fantasy info:

I've been following DR U Fantasy Football GURU's player profiles for quite some time now and am pleased to see their Top 100 Fantasy Football Players Cheat Sheets post. I will be adding this to my spreadsheet of average ranking positions soon.

Second, Fantasy Football Goat alerted me to Donovan McNabb's blog - I'd love to know of any other NFL players with blogs. McNabb's blog is on Yardbarker and there's a list of other athlete bloggers including NFLers Mark Clayton, Bart Scott [photo: AP], and Chris Henry (TEN). Pretty interesting stuff and I'm intrigued by the way blogs, social networking, etc are bringing fans in more personal contact with players. Makes me wonder how we will interact with players in say 20 years. Could be a lot more interactive - completely different.

Finally, are you interested in Jerricho Cotchery and whether or not he'll pan out into a fantasy star this year? Check out Fanball's Cotch Rocket for more info.

Dear Librarian,
Billick's straw hat isn't THAT ridiculous. In fact, we think it's rather fashionable.

Hey Librarian,
Do you have the top 100 for any of these experts from last year? I've found a few, and compared them to the actual season's Top 100, and I've found that the experts are about equally bad. That's too bad because it would be fun to have an average draft position with weighted experts.

Great question, Aaron. I'll see what I can find from these guys for 2006 and will post what I can find.
