It's time for the 2009 average ranking position spreadsheet! As I mentioned yesterday, I pulled Top 100 overall rankings from 10 fantasy football experts and averaged them together to create one monster average ranking.
There are a few things to keep in mind:
- I tried to ensure that the experts all used the same scoring system (non-PPR by the way) but many sites didn't actually note their system at all.
- I pulled all of these rankings within the span of a few hours so that they represent rankings from the same time period/news/injury updates, etc.
- As in the past several years, I assigned a ranking of 125 to any player that wasn't ranked by a site. For example, several sites did not rank Donnie Avery within their Top 100 players, so I gave Avery a ranking of 125 from those sites to try and represent that missing rank.
I've posted the full spreadsheet up on Scribd but if you'd like an excel version of the spreadsheet, just e-mail me and I'll send it your way. I have the averages in one worksheet but each expert's top 100 is listed as a separate worksheet as well.
The expert sites I looked at are: Ask the Commish, CBS Sports, ESPN, FFToolbox, FOX Sports, KFFL, NFL.com, SI, SportingNews.com, and Yahoo. I originally was going to include No-Offseason as well but their inclusion of IDPs (individual defensive players) encouraged me to drop them out since it seemed like a different style of ranking. I did however include their top 100 in the full spreadsheet in case you'd like to take a look.
Keep in mind that this is just one tool to help you with your draft but I do hope it will be useful! I'm happy to update these rankings so if you've got a favorite site that has a Top 100 ranking that I haven't included, please let me know.
