Updated 2008 average ranking positions

Happy Labor Day...and for many of you, happy drafting day. I have just completed an update to my average ranking positions that I posted a few weeks ago - at your request, I made a few small changes like not including the list that was based on PPR (but if you want a PPR ranking, check out Football Burrito) but I basically followed the same pattern of 1) averaging all the overall rankings to provide an average ranking position for each player 2) including the standard deviation to create an average + consensus number that will give you insight on how similar that player's rankings were across the experts (the smaller the standard deviation, the more consensus there was on that player's ranking) and 3) a ranking within position based on the averages I pulled out.

Once again, I've posted the updated version on Scribd and as a Google spreadsheet but if you'd like the Excel version, just shoot me an e-mail.

Don't forget to sign up for the FFLibrarian's Challenge, part of NBCSports.com's $100k Fantasy Challenge (my group number is 1907 and the password is librarian). There are 28 of us in the league right now - join us!

If I get a chance later today I'll try to get some more links up but for now I'm off to enjoy my day off for a bit. Also, I'm signing up for Pay the Fan, like some of my fellow bloggers, and will be posting my thoughts on that and other league hosts in the next day or two (I'm done with 6 of my 7 drafts!).

love the site! i know that this may be sacrilegious, but does anyone do something similar for fantasy basketball?

Found the site a while back, enjoy your work.

I too have wondered the same, if these type of composite rankings are available for other sports. I think it would be a great thing to have.

Also a feature to customize them based on settings, like I've found elsewhere for football.

Keep up the great work!

I don't know about other sites and what they might have available - I'll be honest, I'm very much a one-trick pony with my love and attention to all things football. :) But if that changes and I find some basketball or baseball sites, I'll get some link love up to them.
