Early rankings are coming!

When the Masters has arrived, I know that it's nearly time for the bulk of fantasy football prognostications to begin. Soon fantasy draft magazines will be available and every joe shmoe will have a ranking. I'll be here sorting out which new sites and writers know that they're talking about and am already excited to see what my favorite oldtimers have to say about the 2009 stay tuned because the fantasy season is almost here.

In the meantime, a few links to start off your weekend:
  • I love KC Joyner's Scientific Football work and I love stats on the less-pondered positions like the Fifth Down's Scientific Football: Cornerback and Receiver Statistics is right up my alley.
  • Matthew Berry updated his Top 200 ranking - all changes are in italics. I wish the player's previous ranking was also noted since I'd like to know just how far Jay Cutler has fallen since leaving my Broncos.
  • Want to take part in Rotoworld's Pancake Mock 2009? I'll be honest, I didn't sort through all the comments to see which teams/picks are left but there could still be something available, so take a look if you're interested. Or participate in The Hazean's 3rd annual reader/blogger mock draft.
  • Wondering which RBs and FBs are ranked most highly in this year's draft? Check out CBS Sports' RB/FB prospects: Tools, flaws make for mixed bag. There hasn't been much talk about top backs this year, which frankly I'm kind of pleased to see since it might limit the unsubstantiated love for this year's rookie RBs after so many rookie RBs had success in 2008.
Enjoy the Masters and Happy Easter weekend!

To answer your question.......
Matthew Berry dropped Cutler from #46 to #77. That might be a bit low, but it also will depend upon who the Bears get to play across from Hester and Olsen.

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
