Well my morning is already off to a great start after this amusing article from Yahoo's Shutdown Corner noting that the Browns just signed a guy they found off a YouTube video. Oh yeeeeah. And? He has a handlebar mustache. That seems like an amazing feat in and of itself. My husband had a handlebar mustache for roughly 6 hours once a few years ago (he was shaving down a beard and delightfully stopped at the handlebar stage) before I believe I begged him to finish the job and just remove the damn thing. If you'd like a glimpse at this o-lineman's video montage (including a shot of the 'stache), then I recommend scoping out the link above.
And yes, the fact that I'm including that link should be a sign that it's a rather slow day in fantasy football world. I have a few more articles for you but savor them each slowly...
- While Fantasyfootball.com has 5 Players to Avoid Like the Plague for the 2010 season, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru has Rookies to Target in 2010...note the overlap of one player in particular. Love it when my go-to sites disagree!
- Rotoworld's Evan Silva has listed his top re-draft rankings at each offensive position (for the rest you'll need to read their mag coming out this summer) as well as notable risers and fallers.
- Meanwhile CBSSports.com has been spending the past few days working up their first Post-draft Fantasy Football Mock Draft. As the picks are made the results of the mock will go up.
- Finally, a cool new stat that FFToolbox has put together - a ranking by position of the number of "quality games" a player has had over the past two seasons. The definition of a quality game varies by position (17+ fantasy points for QBs, 13+ for RBs, etc) but I think this is pretty interesting stuff...could look at this for a long, long time. Plus the major bonus? Includes individual defenders. Rad!
