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'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!).

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.

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J. Spiller, Beanie Wells, Ronnie Brown WR Start: Santana Moss, Legedu Naanee, Malcolm Floyd, Mike Williams (TB), Dez Bryant Sit: Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree TE Start: Chris Cooley, Todd Heap, John Carlson, Jermichael Finley Sit: Jermaine Gresham, Owen Daniels, Tony Scheffler, Jeremy Shockey, Bo Scaife Kicker Start: La

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
