Cutler bracketology and more

It's bracket time, my friends. This is one of those rare times of year when a sport other than football falls to the forefront of my mind. Though there are clever sites out there like The Hazean that have managed to seamlessly mesh together the beloved ritual of bracketology with fantasy football, for the most part I think many of us are just thinking about NCAA basketball. But never fear, I won't leaving you hanging on a Monday without the now requisite Cutler-McDaniels update and other FF links.
  • Will Jay Cutler and I both be moving to New York for the 2009 season? For details on Cutler's weekend talks and trade options, see the Fifth Down's Cutler Asks for a Trade. Jets Need a QB. Though not all experts are convinced that Cutler is going anywhere - check out Gregg Rosenthal's thoughts and concern for what this means for Cutler's fantasy value. Maybe I should start a Cutler's future bracket and start making bets with friends on the outcome. As for details on my potential move to NY, stay tuned...
  • Football News from a Chick reviews some of the latest moves in Happenings in & around the league overnight including LB Julian Peterson becoming a Lion and Joey Galloway becoming a Patriot.
  • The Bruno Boys' 2009 Fantasy Football Red Flag Players outlines a few players at each position that you might want to be a bit cautious about going into the 2009 season. A few names that pop out at me? Gates and Shockey, two former no-brainer TEs both make the TE red flag list this year.
  • Oooh, IDP rankings - I do love them. FFXtreme doesn't disappoint with their first installment of 2009 IDP rankings with a dynasty/keeper bent.
All for now, I'm off to polish up my bracket!

Sadly, after riding Cutler to the sweet smell of Championship victory in my fantasy league last fall, I knew as soon as Shanny departed his QB value would drop. He already has to learn an all-new system, so I guess a change of scenery will not make his fantasy value drop much further. NY Jets? They would need another WR to replace Coles. Who else needs a QB? San Fran? Minnesota? Cutler could easily beat out the guys they plan to bring to camp. Makes you wonder...

Mike Lombardi suggested Buffalo as a landing spot with Denver getting their first and Edwards.

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'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 has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
