Wrapping up the weekend with FF

The world is a better place with air conditioning. And long weekends. I was at an outdoor concert today at a Brooklyn cemetery with a few friends (yes, completely weird in a lot of ways; oh and average age of other concert goers? 70) and felt like in some small way I was doing my part to honor those who gave their lives serving the country. I also continue to be impressed with just how quickly time is flying by: June is nearly upon us. In a few days I'll turn another year older, and a few days after that I head to the FSTA Summer Conference in Chicago. Good times. Lots to squeeze in before the World Cup starts!

To tonight's short list of links:
  • Starting off the week with a weekly shot of MMQB is usually a good call - scope out King's latest: Goodell's leadership could be main key in avoiding job action in 2011.
  • I dig the in-depth look that RapidDraft gives the Rams in their Team Breakdown: St. Louis Rams article. See what has changed over the offseason and who you'll want to focus on fantasy-wise (including IDPs). They'll be continuing this series throughout the upcoming weeks. 
  • You probably heard that LenDale White wasn't ready to be a Seahawk - so what does that mean for my fantasy crush Forsett? See what Razzball projects for Forsett this season in This Just In, Forsett's Fantasy Forecast.
  • FantasyFanPlay.com lists a bunch of players that could come Back From the Dead this year and prove to be a value grab - not sure I'm buying that some of these guys could really be all that promising this year, but hey, that's why they'll come at you pretty cheap.

I'm very excited for footballguys' free 250 page fantasy magazine - does anyone know if that's coming soon? I forgot what day it was released last year, but I was hoping for late May this year.

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  DavidGonos.com'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 CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
