Prelude to the average rankings

I'm amazed at how quickly the day passes when I'm not at work - I had this impression that without a job I'd be lolling around, bored and without a purpose, but turns out that beyond the whole "get to know the amazing city of New York" thing, I can actually find quite a few things to occupy my time. We'll see how long this lasts...especially as I sit in an un-airconditioned 85.1 degree apartment. We thought we could just wait out the rest of the summer without putting in a window unit but WOW it is hot and humid here.

Onto today's links...
  • We've got players returning to practice - Brandon Marshall and Chris Wells - which always makes fantasy owners happy.
  • A search for WR fantasy sleepers from Rotoworld - I can't help but believe that when Rotoworld calls you a sleeper, you immediately become the player that everyone thinks they have the inside scope on, but in reality has just become a bit overblown and is suddenly drafted about a round too early. Really it's a compliment to Rotoworld's popularity and is something to keep in mind when any big site lists their favorite sleepers.
  • I almost hate to link to Michael Vick stuff just since I think it has been WAY too much of a headline (like the Favre back and forth that continues...) but I missed the 60 Minutes with Vick last night. I caught up on it with the Fifth Down's Did You Believe Vick on '60 Minutes'?
  • Football Jabber has updated positional rankings - take a look!
  • More rankings from Fighting Chance Fantasy - QBs, RBs, and TEs so far.
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru has posted his first video in quite some time. He's got some thoughts up about guys to keep an eye on during the preseason.
I mentioned last week that I was working on my annual average rankings spreadsheet and it is less than 24 hours away, I think. I've gathered Top 100 rankings from 11 big sites that offer up their rankings for free (ESPN, SportingNews, CBS Sports, No-Offseason, SI, Yahoo!, KFFL, Fox Sports, Ask the Commish,, and FFToolbox) and am pulling together an average ranking across all those stay tuned!

Excellent! Can't wait to see the analysis. Your stuff is the best. Will you by chance looking at the data from a PPR perspective as well?

Agree - cannot wait for your analysis. Any chance to look at auction prices that are out there - or post links to the others you think are good. TY

do you have an average ranking for PPR leagues?

Thanks for the linkage nice lady! Hope you are having a great time. NYC is on my list of things to do yet.

Thank you so much for doing an aggregate ADP from those sites. I have been using the ADP, and have to continually remind myself that the lineup rules for their mock draft are 2 RB, 3 WR, no flex with PPR scoring, which is overvaluing WR's if you are in a no PPR Flex league. They do have a nice feature that allows you to view the draft as a color-coded draft board, though.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
