FF linkorama

Happy insufferably hot Thursday. If you've managed to find a place that is not part of the oppressive heat covering much of the country, then kudos; wish I could magically transport myself to the Arctic right now. But perhaps thinking about fantasy football is just what we all need...so onto today's links!
  • Check out The Hazean's musings on what would happen if Vincent Jackson leaves San Diego.
  • A couple of mocks for you:
    • First, FFXtreme was part of a recent Rotoworld Experts Mock Draft and he's posted the mock results. I'll be honest, I heart Finley, too, but note that Smitty's drafting of him as the first TE overall is really more of a statement selection, not likely to be the spot that he'll be drafted in the vast majority of leagues.
    • If you've been waiting for a mock draft for auction leagues, well then you're in luck - Fantasyfanplay.com has just what you're looking for in Making a Mockery 3.0: A Bidding War.
  • Razzball has taken their ranking of top 50 players and expanded it to a top 100 list (note: top 200 is en route...) that includes projections. 
  • I've probably been on the James-Jones-is-going-to-rock train and the latest reports on how well Jones and Jordy Nelson are doing certainly are encouraging. However, for another perspective, scope out what NoOffseason.com has to say in The James Jones Hype.
  • Scope out Rotoworld's observations on rookie running backs in Running at Rookie Precedent.
  • If it's really rookie WRs that you're interested in though, scope out FootballGuys.com's Matt Waldman's Gut Check column from last week. The Gut Check should be a must-read for all and this article is no exception.
  • Matt Schauf continues his team profiles, this time with a lengthy but solid breakdown of the Carolina Panthers.
  • Finally, FFToolbox has pulled together a list of the training camp start dates for all 32 teams - woohoo! This makes me quite excited about the season - it really will be here before we know it!

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
