Bevy of 2009 rankings

Back to the bowling alley tonight, my friends. After a rather abysmal performance 2 weeks ago I'm kind of dreading how things might go down tonight. I'm trying to train the competitor in me to reclaim the fun in bowling even if I'm only rolling at the level of an 9-year-old. I swear I am bowling at about the same pace as I was at my 9th birthday party, which was of course held in a bowling alley. Though a duck pin bowling alley now that I think about it so I'll take some solace in the fact that I might have improved over the past 20ish years.

Enough on bowling - there's a Combine to talk about!

  • We're being financially conservative these days and not splurging on the NFL Network at home anymore so I won't actually be able to watch non-stop Combine footage this week/weekend. Bummer. But that's where steps up to the plate with some great coverage, videos, etc. If you're not sure who to keep an eye on during the Combine, take a look at's 2009 Scouting Combine preview video.
  • I love early offseason rankings and have a whole bunch to share here. We'll start things off with Hatty Waiver Wire Guru, who is back and better than ever. Take a look at Player Rankings 2009 for top QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs for the 2009 season. I'm seeing several rookie RBs in here - more than I was expecting, not sure I'm as confident in as many rookie RBs as Hatty is, but I'm certainly interested in how things will pan out this season.
  • Speaking of rookies, take a look at's Dynasty Rookie Big Board for thoughts on whose stock is going up or down. Keep an eye on this as the Combine weekend chugs along - I'm sure there will be some updates. At the bottom of the page you can look at rookie rankings by position, too.
  • Sporting News' Rankings: AP...and everybody else - I'm digging the RB rankings here.
  • Rankings galore for 2009 from that are consistently updated - top 100 or by position: QB, RB, WR, TE, Kicker, D/ST
  • Looking for more keeper rankings? If so then give Hawk Fantasy Sports a try and check out their keeper rankings for QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs...and sleepers. Yes, I know how you all love your sleepers, so find Hawk's top 25 sleepers here.
  • Turn to one spot for advice from multiple experts on their top 12 for 2009 - Fantasy Index has asked several of the best and brightest minds in the FF industry to lay out their Top 12 in Ask the Experts.

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

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
