FF Vegas Style

I've been in Vegas for the past few days for a library conference but was lucky enough to step outside of the conference confines to celebrate my birthday on The Strip last night. Oh Vegas. So very different from Boulder, Colorado. I must say, I can totally get down with a world where free drinks are somewhat the norm, but there are other less desirable aspects of Vegas for sure - I probably won't be celebrating birthdays in Vegas from here on out, but I guess you never know. Enough on Vegas, let's talk fantasy football:

  • The Bruno Boys are up and better than ever; check out their new site - you won't regret it.
  • The season has truly begun; draft kits are sprouting up all over the place and I shall endeavor to find the free ones for you. If you know of any, let me know! In the meantime, if you want a great draft kit in exchange for cold, hard cash, try Rotoworld's Fantasy Football Draft Guide. And if you need reasons to check it out, read this - you might see a familiar name. And on that note, for those who are looking for some follow-up on my analysis of the most accurate fantasy sites from 2007, hang tight. I'll be getting that spreadsheet up by the end of the weekend.
  • The Pro Football Reference Blog has an interesting look back at QBs from last season in their 2007 QB Numbers: Adjusted for Strength of Schedule.
  • For the latest on Marshawn Lynch, read the FF Geek Blog's article Update: Witnesses say Marshawn Lynch was driving.
  • Looking for some new fantasy football sites, perhaps blog style? The FF Goat has listed a few sites that you might not have checked out quite yet in his Fantasy Football Bloggers Blitz #10.

More this weekend when I'm back home and not enjoying the chaos of Vegas and, oh right, that library conference.

What do you make of Matt Forte's value after Cedric Benson's recent arrest?

Well I personally can't imagine that Benson will really be a Bear for a whole lot longer; so I think this can only help Matt Forte's value. I'm guessing that by the time the season gets here, Forte will be drafted as an RB2. I think he might perform more like an RB3, but there's a lot of hype about him and I think he'll go at the end of the 2nd round in a lot of leagues.

Hey FF Librarian, hope the library conferences went well in Vegas. I'll be heading there this weekend for a cousin's bachelor party, so that should be pretty awesome. I'm looking forward to anything free, as I suspect it's going to be quite a pricey trip when all is said and done.

Thanks Brandon, the library conference did go well. And really Vegas started to grow on me by the time I you can imagine a casino and a library are pretty different places so perhaps I needed the sensory overload of Vegas. Enjoy the free drinks and have a great time in Vegas!
