More from Fabiano

A few weeks ago I posted the first of Michael Fabiano's eight-part series on the fantasy outlook for all NFL teams. This posting of the AFC West rounds out Fabiano's look at the AFC - you can click here for the AFC North, AFC South, and AFC East, or just use the links in Fabiano's article.

Fabiano has also just started on the NFC - click here for the NFC East. When the rest of the NFC summaries are up, I will post those as well.

And are you looking for some early indication of who the 2007 fantasy football studs might be? Check out the FFToolbox.com's 2007 listing of Studs and Busts. The Studs listing includes a helpful position ranking - and never fear, these lists will be updated throughout the pre-season.

Taking a Value Hit

Gearing up

Over the weekend I saw a commercial for Sunday Night Football on NBC. I was only sort of paying attention as I was actually talking to my mom to wish her a happy mother's day, but I know this means football isn't that far off. In fact, it's just a mere 100 days or so until the Bronco's season opener. Michael Fabiano on NFL.com has started their eight-part series that looks at each division and team to see what the fantasy outlook for 2007 might be...

Football on my mind

I gave a presentation this week at work and had to illustrate a search in our library's online catalog - what term came to my mind immediately? Football. I'm sure the room full of librarians listening to me probably would've preferred a search on gardening or knitting or cats (not that I have anything against any of those things; I adore my own 2 cats). I'm basing this on the chuckles that arose when I said, "Now since I'm sure you are all as excited about football season as I am..." as I entered in my football search. If only there were more football fans here...

But back to the real deal. You're longing for more assessment of the draft, aren't you? Thinking of staking out some mini-camps to get insider fantasy news [photo: The Plain Dealer/AP]? A few articles to keep your post-draft momentum going:
