My Bruno Boys online draft with a few of the big dogs in the FF world continues. I drafted #1 overall and so far my team includes:
LaDainian Tomlinson, 1.01
Chad Johnson, 2.12
Peyton Manning, 3.01
Calvin Johnson, 4.12
Selvin Young, 5.01
Jonathan Stewart, 6.12
Chris Johnson, 7.01
Thoughts? How am I doing? Yup, I'm taking a risk with Young and the rookie platter of Stewart and Johnson, but I feel like right when Young might be at risk of having Hall swoop in on his carries, Stewart and Johnson will be at the point of dominating their backfields. We'll see how that plays out but I start 2 RBs and 3 WRs in this league so I need to flesh out my WRs a bit more.
Depending on Tropical Storm/Hurricane Fay and her fury on Internet access, I may have a draft tomorrow, too, where I will be drafting from the 6th spot. So I've got lots of tiering and rankings and projections on the brain...as I know so many of you do, too.
- Advanced NFL Stats deviates from their norm to provide some fantasy football insight. Check out Fantasy Draft Strategy (part 1) for some thoughts on the consistency of positions year after year and how that might affect your drafting strategies. Part 2 of this analysis is forthcoming and will spell out a strategy "that will give you a big advantage in your league's draft"...that's always desirable, no? So I'll be sure to get a link up to part 2 when the time comes.
- The Bruno Boys have posted their Top 150 Cheat Sheet. The scoring system for this list is at the bottom but it's a 4 pts/passing TD and I believe non-PPR. I included this ranking (or at least the top 100 guys) in the latest update to my average ranking positions.
- The Goat is a non-stop sleeper machine - he's posted about lots of players that could be nice value picks this draft season so take a look at 2008 Fantasy Football Sleepers and Value Picks Volume 3 before you draft.
- Finally, if you want more tiering, I definitely recommend checking out FFToday's Cheat Sheets - good stuff there. Here's the QB & RB sheet, WR & TE sheet and the K &D/ST sheet...plus an IDP sheet. Love it.
