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 NFL.com 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 NFL.com'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 No-Offseason.com'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 NFL.com 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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
