Minicamp updates and other fantasy headlines

I think this might be the longest I have ever gone without putting up a post - my apologies and I hope you all haven't been missing your football links too much! I wrapped up an awesome weekend with family and my husband and I are now in Moab, Utah with some friends. Tomorrow morning we're waking up early for a day hike in The Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. The topography here is just unreal - good stuff. 

I'll be back with my regular postings later this week, but in the meantime, here are a few links to keep you happy...
  • CBS Sports has some advice on which veteran football players you're going to want to consider come fantasy draft day in The new value of some fantasy veterans - take a look at which guys will shine, which will disappoint and which surprise.
  • Tony Gonzalez seems to fit right into the Atlanta offense - will Gonzo's value take a hit after all in fantasy drafts?? I'm feeling the start of an overrated value run on Gonzo; not that he'll have a bad season, just that he likely won't repeat 2008's numbers and yet the Ryan to Gonzo hype is building already...
  • Check out The Hazean's Monday Morning Rehab post for the latest injury updates on guys like  LT, Devin Thomas (I'm kind of intrigued by this guy...) and Derrick Mason.
  • The Rotoworld guys keep the Tough to Rank series cranking, this time with a write-up on the Seattle running game. Where do Julius Jones and T.J. Duckett fit in? Could Julius Jones in particular be a great value pick this year?
  • Sports Grumblings' The Dark Side enters the 2009 season with a look at players to target this year (and beyond) and players to avoid - all with an extra dose of humor.  
  • Finally, I've found myself looking for depth charts quite a bit lately and I highly recommend scoping out FFToolbox's 2009 NFL Depth Charts for Fantasy Football in case you're looking for a good resource.

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
