Happy Cinco de Football

On this fine Cinco de Mayo day, let's all celebrate and turn our attention to fantasy football...
  • A reader pointed me back in the direction of Fantasy Football Breakdown, a site I had not visited in awhile, and I'm already salivating as I look at the various sorting I can do with their offensive line rankings and strength of schedule info. As I've probably made known in the past, I really value o-line information since it really gets to the heart of our bread and butter positions in fantasy football: RBs and QBs. But play around with that site a bit since you can get rankings for all positions for the full fantasy season or just fantasy playoffs.
  • The Hazean takes a look at Dallas receivers sans T.O. I was definitely a Patrick Crayton believer in the past but as The Hazean points out, he might just be the odd man out this season.
  • Fantasy Sharks is getting all "J" here (think Myers-Briggs personality type...) and posting long-term assessments on some of the top rookies in Dynasty Talk: Top 8 Long-Term Rookies.
  • For more on rookie values, see Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's 2nd video of the offseason.
  • Who doesn't love a one-man mock? See NFL.com's Michael Fabiano duke it out solo in a 3-round fantasy draft, Forte moves up into second spot in latest three-round mock draft.
  • The Fantasy Hulks are loving Steven Jackson this season in S. Jax Wild in '09 - I'm not sure I feel the same way but the article was certainly an interesting read.
  • IDPers rejoice, the FFManiaxs are updating their defensive player rankings. Find your LB, DB and DE rankings here.
All for now - early Cinco de Mayo happy hour anyone?

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
