Laboring Over Fantasy Football

I had my 4th draft this past weekend - it's my last draft for my 4 leagues, but I am drafting for my brother-in-law this Wednesday night. Then, sadly I'll be done with drafting until 2008. But I am itching to get going with some games this season! This latest draft was on Sunday morning and of the 10 team owners, only 4 of us were there to draft live. I think that says a lot about scheduling your league's draft for Labor Day weekend....perhaps not the best call. But it went well for me and I actually really enjoyed having just 10 teams in the league.

Many of you have responded to my poll about the information you're looking for on FF Librarian, and I appreciate that. I'll be changing the poll soon to get a feel for the info you want during the season but in the meantime, I'll try to crank out some more cheatsheets and rankings for those of you who aren't done drafting (or just tweaking your lineups).

Awhile back I posted my spreadsheet with some average ranking positions - looks like some others out there have had the same thought, including these guys at Fantasy Sports Central who have a way more recent average ranking than mine (mine was based on rankings at the end of July). So check out Fantasy Sports Central's Average Cheat Sheets, divided up by position. Also, as I've mentioned before, Fantasy Football Summary has used this same idea and Scott over at FF Summary has set up both positional and overall - it's updated as of 9/1.

One final note, I've used or checked out many of the fantasy resources listed on TheFootballBlogger.com's post about 50+ fantasy resources and found the list to be extremely helpful. Plus it brought some new sites to my attention - always something I'm on the prowl for in my spare time. I've added TheFootballBlogger as a link to the right for quick access to other FF resource sites.

And why aren't OUR blogs listed on the FootballBlogger site?

Preposterous.

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
