Tuesday Fantasy Updates

Fantasy football draft kits and cheat sheets are exploding all over the web. I just printed out my 48-page Bruno Boys Pre-Draft Webazine and am looking forward to reviewing it. Stat. And then recycling the small tree of paper - this thing is beefy.

Over dinner last night, my husband and I were discussing the merits of drafting Daunte Culpepper in the very late rounds. I'll spare you our conversation as it probably wasn't nearly as concise or enlightening as the nice review of Daunte Culpepper done byTJI Fantasy Sports. TJI (short for This Just In) also has somewhat lengthy blogs on where to draft Reggie Bush and GB's Brandon Jackson. I like the attention to individual players that TJI provides - it's nice to see a few paragraphs about a player you could potentially draft for the season rather than just a few sentences.

Take a look at this week's NBC Sports Fantasy Fix video for a review of which round to draft some interesting players like Cadillac Williams, Deuce McAllister, and Randy Moss. Gregg Rosenthal and Tiffany Simons have been hosting the Fantasy Fix segment for quite some time now and I say getting fantasy football info by video is certainly a welcome change of pace.

Earlier this week, Aaron posted a comment asking how accurate the experts that I noted in my Average Ranking Positions post were in 2006 - did the 2006 rankings compare to fantasy point totals at the end of the season? I have been fairly successful in finding the 2006 rankings from those same experts and am going to compare their rankings from a year ago to the 2006 fantasy point totals - I should be posting that blog by Wednesday afternoon, I hope, so stay tuned.

Thanks for the publicity and the compliments. Glad you liked my posts. There's a new one up that you might not enjoy as much--a critique of Travis Henry. I'm curious about the response a Broncos fan would have. Let me know.

I'm sure you get asked this thousands of times, but do you know if there's a librarian fantasy football league out there to join?
Hi Eric,
In response to your comment about finding a librarian fantasy football league out there, I recommend you check out this blog: http://researchquest.blogspot.com/2007/07/national-librarian-sport-declared.html. I referenced it in one of my posts in July and the librarian of that blog, Paul, then left me a comment asking if I was interested in playing in his librarian FF league. Unfortunately I think my head might explode if I participate in another league, so I can't give you the details about it but it might be worth contacting him. Hope that helps!

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
