Ranking the rooks

I'm looking out of my office window today and finally seeing evidence of spring outside - the newbie green leaves are popping out and I'm once again reminded of how much I love this season (and of how I've somehow developed allergies). East coasters, I realize you've been enjoying not just spring but even summerlike weather as of late but here in Colorado spring is slow-moving beast. Onto our links for today...

  • Time for a flurry of Brett Favre headlines? Let's hope not. As the Fifth Down notes, the Jets released Favre at his request and he is "at this time" retiring from football.
  • Also in category of old guys who have been released, the Edge is no longer with the Cardinals. What a failed experiment that one was.
  • The Hazean hits us up with some Early Rookie Rankings - top 10 QBs, RBs, WRs, and top5 TEs. Side note: if you're having trouble viewing the Hazean's site correctly in Firefox like I am (an ad hovers over the content), try it out in IE and your problems will be solved.
  • Or try FFToolbox's Keeper and Dynasty League rankings for each position (only QBs, RBs and TEs are available at this time) - note the very help "who not to keep" link included. It's still linking to last year's article but keep an eye on this since I think it's just as helpful if not more so than the other ranking links.
  • Get your rookie rankings via Rotoworld's Fantasy Fix video - perhaps I need to listen to these guys before I anoint Moreno as the one back in Denver...clearly I'm ready to move on from the RBBC mayhem here.
  • More 2009 draft analysis this time from the FFManiaxs - look for the five most impressive and least impressive team drafts here.
  • Finally, the Fantasy Hulks have a top 50 ranking up already for your enjoyment.

Ahhh what the heck? I am using Firefox but do not have this problem. Are you still seeing it?
Okay, we might be able to blame this one on the settings on my browser at's hoping the rest of you can easily read The Hazean's fine content without trouble!

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
