Future Fantasy Footballer in the Making

Today is a great day, my fantasy football friends. My husband and I are a little bit closer to figuring out where we might live next year (he's finishing up his PhD this spring so he's on the job market now, traveling around for interviews) and I just found out that one of my closest friends is having a baby. Not only do I get to be Aunt Sara but it's another little mind to lead to fantasy football...and yes I realize that makes me sound like a cult leader or something. The cult of fantasy football?? Well then, read on for some cult news.

  • So the NFL Combine is right around the corner. While many of us are spending our days wondering just how much longer winter will last, there are incoming rookies anxiously prepping for the big week in Indy. If you're wondering which players you should be keeping an eye on, take a look at The Hazean's The Rookie Report: Scouting the Scouting Combine. Or see what KFFL has to say in their 2009 NFL Draft Rankings: Top 100. Probably like many of you, I read The Blind Side last year and would like to see where Michael Oher falls come draft day.
  • Have you heard yet that Favre's retiring? Ha, of course you have. If you were anywhere near any media outlet in the past 24 hours, I guarantee you're already begging the local sports guy or girl to make the Favre news stop. But I do believe this is it for Favre's career and I'm interested in seeing what he does next.
  • If you took a football hiatus since the Super Bowl and are wondering now what you might have missed out on, no worries, Gregg Rosenthal has you covered. He took a break as well (though his break occurred in Costa Rica, which is where I wish I was right now) and has a recap of some storylines while he was out of town.
  • If you've been keeping up with your NFL news but are having a hard time keeping some of it straight, has you covered - they offer up a coaching changes cheatsheet and updates on players that have been cut so far, both of which are pretty darn helpful.
All for now, I'm off to go scope out baby toys. I mean how many plush football toys can I buy for my friend's baby??

Who do you think will be the first pick in the draft?

Sarah, I imagine you're going to be really, really sad to leave Boulder. Here's hoping your family's job relocation puts you in an equally nice location.

Adrian Peterson BettorFan.

Good luck finding a nice place to land.

May I suggest a bobblehead for the baby. You're a Broncos fan so an Elway bobble would be perfect.

I agree with Lester's Legends - AP will go #1 in fantasy drafts for sure. But are you thinking of the NFL Draft, BettorFan? The Lions need help in so many ways but I could certainly see them going for a QB - maybe Stafford?

And yes, bigboid, I am going to be very sad to leave Boulder. This place is unique (and of course has its downfalls) so it will be hard to say goodbye. That said, being closer to our family is such a plus that it automatically makes our next east coast location appealing.

Now if anyone has a library or fantasy football job in NYC or DC that they'd like to offer me, do let me know. :)
