First of the draft guides!

I'm back from a family trip to Michigan and am gearing up for another family weekend - we have 6 of our nearest and dearest coming in this week for my husband's graduation - while also trying to get some finishing touches on our condo before we put it on the market next week. So if my posts are short and sweet this week, don't be surprised since I think my mind is in about ten different places right now. But don't worry, my mind is always on football to some extent...

  • Pigskin Addiction has a little something that those playing in IDP (individual defensive player) leagues might like - a 2009 Top 100 Rookies ranking including IDPs. Good stuff.
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru is starting to crank back into action for the football season - if you found Hatty's advice helpful during the 2008 season and are in the market for dynasty player rankings, then consider buying the premium draft guide that he's preparing for $5. Not a bad price at all for advice from a group of knowledgeable guys. I'm sure there are many, many more draft guides to come so prepare yourselves!
  • I'm a DeAngelo Williams fan - I like what he did in '08 and don't envision the Panthers changing up their backfield a ton after the great success they had. But it's true, he is hard to rank...take a look at Pancake Blocks' Tough to Rank: DeAngelo Williams and voice your opinion on where he should be drafted.
  • I'm also on the LT train this season - I think the guy's 2008 season has scared a few people off, so I can guarantee that he'll come at a bargain (unless you play with someone who hasn't looked at rankings in 2-3 years) and provide you with pretty solid numbers now that he's healthy and running behind a reinforced o-line. Remember, LT's worst season was still 4th best in the AFC. Niiiiiice.
  • Seems to me the news that Kevin Curtis had a second surgery in mid-April will bump up Jeremy Maclin's value a bit. Lots of young receiving talent in Philly with DeSean Jackson and Maclin in the picture...
  • Still in the market for some NFL Draft analysis? Take a look at Ask the's list of best and worst draft picks.
