Friday means football research day

So I've had a few of you ask if the average ranking positions spreadsheet I created could be manipulate to reflect your league's scoring system. Sadly, I am but one person and that is beyond the scope of what I can do - however, there are plenty of sites out there that excel at this. I've only looked at Cheat Sheets Creator a little bit but since they're in beta, they're giving their product away for free this year and it could be well worth your time. Or take a look at FFToday whose rankings can all be customized to your own system. There are probably plenty of other options out there and if you know of one, feel free to leave a suggestion in the comments section.

  • Wondering which injured players out there are risks versus those that might just come back better than ever? Or at least good enough to be worthy of a roster spot? Take a look at CBS' Draft prep: Injury risks and bounce backs.
  • FFToday's Gut Check column (worth a read every week) assesses the 2007 All-Gut Check Team and provides a look at 2008 sleepers - I like a lot of the guys mentioned here. I think I'd love playing in an all-sleeper/late round league if such a thing existed. Note that the end of the article includes updated tiers by position (though Kevin Curtis is still listed pretty highly, so keep that in mind when looking at the tiers).
  • Speaking of tiers, I'm a big fan of Rotoworld if you haven't noticed, so pay attention here - their QB Tiers of Heaven are up and worth reading, printing, plugging into your own rankings, memorizing, whatever it takes.
  • Mark St. Amant's Fantasy Football Amnesia on the NYTimes looks at how some of our favorite (and not so favorite) fantasy players have landed themselves in new situations this year and why you should be paying attention to them.

The link to CBS' Draft prep: Injury risks and bounce backs seems to be dead for me. Just wanted to give you a heads up. Thanks again for this blog, saved me last year for sure and i am positive it will be great this year as well.

Thanks for the heads up, Alex. I've got the link fixed. And I'm glad the blog has been helpful!
