Training for fantasy football season

Later this morning I'm meeting with a personal trainer for the first time in my life. When I joined a gym here in NY last week, along with the membership came the chance to meet with a trainer - who could say no to that? Looking forward to it except I'm sure to get a lesson on my poor posture.

Truly I'm living the life of riley here - working on fantasy football, meeting with trainers, exploring NYC - gotta fit it all in I guess before I find myself a new library gig, right?

Onto today's links...

  • Wondering what to do if LaDainian Tomlinson falls to you in this year's draft? I recently did a RapidDraft and grabbed him at the 7th overall spot but if you'd like to hear both sides of the LT argument, take a look at CBSSport.com's How to handle L.T. on Draft Day.
  • Tony Holm has his Prognosticator column up on FantasySharks.com with his 2009 Draft Plan - I'm intrigued by his statement that this is the strangest draft year he has ever seen. All the more reason to mock draft before your big day, eh?
  • I think Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy is one of the more impressive sites out there - they're consistently putting up new material that clearly has taken time and effort; good stuff. Take a look at their latest: 14 Proven Draft Recommendations and make sure you go deep into the details.
  • Along those same lines, Gregg Rosenthal has 6 Totally Unrelated Draft Tips up on Rotoworld.
  • I know most of what I focus on here would help out those of you in standard fantasy football leagues, which is probably why I found FanHouse's Flexible Flex Spots? Stack up on QBs so interesting.
  • Those of you in IDP leagues who don't already frequent Kilroyz Krystal Ball column on Fantasy Football Oasis are going to want to add him into your weekly/daily site check. You'll get team IDP updates, sleepers, and injury news. Excellent. There just aren't enough IDP sites out there.
  • Another site you might want to keep an eye on? LestersLegends.com is cranking out player profiles with impressive frequency - take a look at one of the latest on Gage, Crayton, Hixon, and Bess.
  • Looking for more FF rankings? Take a look at the Mac Bros positional rankings - here are the RBs, which are fleshed out in a bunch of detail with pros/cons for the top 15.

Every year I always wonder if my draft strategy was correct. Especially when deciding to take a QB. I just found this and it is very helpful.

The link for "Flexible Flex Spots? Stack up on QBs" is pointing at the Rotoworld article

Got the link fixed already - thanks for the heads up!

What is rule #1 in the 14 Proven Strategies? TDs are inconsistent!

I am going to send them an e-mail and see if I can get some royalty payments...

Thanks for the link FFL. You'd be happy to know I'm rolling with a few broncos on my main team this year. Hope they pan out.

ultimateffstrategy.com is unreal.. I'll be sure to track his recommendations about week 4 or 5 of the nfl season
