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

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
