The FFL league and lots o' linking

I'm digging all of the positive feedback I've seen in the comments and e-mails from those of you who want to be part of the FFLibrarian league. So I know this might disappoint some of you but I think the best way to organize this many interested people might be to do a weekly contest format rather than a season-long format. That way those of you who can't commit during part of the season, or those who just get into it late, can still participate. I would absolutely report on the winner each week and you'd be awarded a prize or two. I'm thinking it will still be a lot of fun even though it won't involve some of the more complex FF thinking like waiver wires and trades...what do you think? And if some of you want to be in a league together in an unofficial FFLibrarian league I can certainly arrange that for you and act as a collector of interested names/e-mails.

But enough on future leagues and on to links:
  • ESPN's projections are up. We're talking 500+ player projections. That's massive. I swear this happens earlier every year but no complaints from me!
  • Rotoworld's dynasty rankings series continues with thoughts on tight ends. I of course immediately looked for Tony Scheffler, my favorite, and am bummed to see him slip to Tier 4. Oh Scheff. Things looked so bright a year ago!
  • I know some anxious Marion Barber dynasty owners who are wondering what will happen to Barber this season. Gregg Rosenthal has taken a look at some 2008 Cowboys coverage in his spare time to help answer the burning question: Will Barber get the red zone touches?
  • I've got sleepers for you. Who doesn't love a sleepers article? And if you don't, you're at least a little curious are you not? FFToolbox has their 2009 Fantasy Football Sleepers up. I like the Earl Bennett call but I think one of the reasons Bennett and Cutler are jiving could be thanks to their Vanderbilt connection (Bennett's freshman year - with Cutler at the helm - he had 79 receptions for 870+ yards and 9 TDs) . Throw in Chris Williams (OT) and it's a total Vandy-fest in Chi-town.

maybe you could do twelve contest or something and have 12 spots in a league and whoever wins those spots gets to be in the league next year? or maybe you could do something with the preseason to determine the spots? I'm cool with the weekly thing though. you could do both! just some thoughts!

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
