Some Super Bowl thoughts and more

Happy Thursday. The work week is coming to a close here and I am headed up to the mountains tomorrow night for a day of skiing. But don't worry, I still have football on my mind. That will never change, never. Plus, I've been led to a few new football sites (more football, less fantasy football) and I'm excited to share some new links.

Before I get to the links, a reminder that FF Librarian is up on facebook now - join me, become an FFL fan!
  • Wondering how you can bone up on your Giants trivia? Look no further than Cold, Hard Football Facts' Five facts only a Giants diehard would know.
  • Also from Cold, Hard Football Facts (yes, I am drooling over this site and kicking myself for just finding it now) check out Power Rankings: Regular-season wrapup edition, where I learned among other things that "the [2007] league-wide pass completion rate of 61.2 percent was the best ever, topping the 59.8 percent of 2004 and 2006."
  • The Football Professor has put together a Super Bowl forecast that has the Patriots winning in the end.
  • Help The Fifth Down explain all the ins and outs of Bill Belichick.
  • And finally, draft simulators and calculators took over my life for an hour+ yesterday (thanks a lot, Tones) until I realized that I had real life duties to attend to and couldn't spend any additional time on FFXtreme's Mock Draft Simulator or Fantasy Football Calculator. There is of course a tiny voice in my head telling me, "but if you mock draft once a day every day until August, you will rule the ff draft world." That could put a hurting on my actual job duties, but the thought of total draft domination is appealing - so I guess we'll see what wins out.

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
