Happy Friday. With all but three preseason games left, things are really picking up in fantasy draft land. I know I'm more than halfway through my drafts but have two more to look forward to this weekend. I will also be spending some time this weekend updating my average draft position spreadsheet that so many of you have asked for. I should have the updated version up on Monday, Sept 1, so please feel free to e-mail me if you'd like the new version when it's available.
Now to fantasy links for the day:
- Brandon Marshall's suspension is down to just one game. Everyone around me in Broncos Country is celebrating and FFFools has some thoughts up on this turn of events.
- Did you hear that Dungy will be shocked if Peyton doesn't play the regular season opener? Or that Sam Hurd is injured? Or even that Kevin Curtis was injured many days ago now? If you've slacked on fantasy news up until now, don't worry, there's still time to catch up. Just don't forget to check out headlines before and after you draft to stay on top of player news - lots of good sites for this put today I'll recommend Ask The Commish's NFL and Team Headlines.
- FFXtreme's free article of the week is a quick guide to Handcuffing Your Players in 2008. I'm becoming more and more of a fan of Ray Rice and Rashard Mendenhall - and in one of my drafts I even tried to pick up Jamal Lewis' backup, Jason Wright, but that was mostly a personal pick on my part since Wright is a fellow Northwestern alum of mine (but I was already maxed out on my RBs permitted on the roster, sadly).
- While browsing through the FFToday articles I found myself clicking on The Gut Check column's Q&A with the founder of WomenAgainstFantasySports.com. I was amused by the banter and mostly I think I just enjoyed taking a little time off of reading about injuries, rankings, sleepers and other articles of that ilk. I confess that even I (gasp!) hit a saturation point with fantasy content.
