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.

Glad to hear you'll be joining in on the Pay the Fan competition. Use the coupon code 'footballfools' to get a discount and be entered into the Fantasy Football Fools league with its own prize, a Best Buy gift card. You'll have to best me to take it home though! :)

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
