The FA News Keeps Rolling In...

I love how completely different all the Randy Moss news is - ESPN is reporting that maybe Moss and Culpepper would like to reunite and take their free agent selves to the same team in 2008; while the NFL Network is reporting that Moss and the Pats are very close to reaching negotiations. Love it.

Another big piece of news - Michael Turner signed with the Falcons (and Warrick Dunn was released). Now who will the Falcons draft with their number 3 overall pick come April? Not to overstate the obvious, but adding The Burner to the Falcons definitely moves Norwood down a few notches in terms of fantasy value.

  • I'm back on Sports Grumblings! Every few weeks I'll be up there spouting off some opinions, so swing by. Check out my thoughts on Fantasy Football Grumblings: Free Agent Frenzy. Since I don't think SG has a comments section, feel free to post here with any thoughts - particularly other big FA fantasy impacts that I missed.
  • Big Ben is making the Big Bucks and sticking around Pittsburgh for another eight years.
  • The Bruno Boys have created the ultimate fantasy football player - check out The Ultimate Fantasy Football Player find out which players make up the cream of the crop.
  • Jesse Chatman (I somehow acquired him in a trade in my keeper league, meaning I might be overly interested in Chatman...) has a visit with the Jets on the docket thanks to the potentially overcrowded backfield in Miami in 2008. Frankly, if I'm the Dolphins, I'm hardly eager to make Ricky Williams the primary backup considering it took all of 6 plays before he was injured last November.

With Favre's big news today, I'd add Aaron Rogers to your watch list. He was a phenom to watch at Cal and I look forward to seeing him step up into some big empty shoes.

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
