Looking for your feedback

It's possible that I just walked into a scene from that show The Apprentice; is that show even on anymore? I was running an errand in midtown NYC and encountered a significant mob surrounding a dude with free pizza selling pedicab rides being filmed by a rather extensive tv crew. I've never actually seen the show but the buzz on the street corner was that this was The Apprentice or something akin to it. Look for a pregnant lady with an annoyed-by-the-tourist-mob expression when it airs: that's me. So NY of me, right?

So I disappeared for a week and thought in return I'd hit you with back-to-back posts as a taste of what's to come once the season really gets cranking. Without further ado, today's links:
  • If you'd like someone to debate all the pros and cons of the elite WRs on the scene, then head on over to FantasySharks.com and see which guys they cover in Top 6 WR Pros & Cons
  • Wondering which guys are going to bounce back from tough 2009 seasons for a mighty 2010? FFToolbox.com lists a handful of Comeback Candidates including names that I'm seeing everywhere (Jay Cutler, Calvin Johnson) and a few other once studs like Turner the Burner and Greg Jennings. Read on to find out the others with big 2010 potential. 
  • I love most everything that Football Outsiders posts and their Offensive Drop Rate was pretty entertaining really. Take a look at which players with a minimum of 30 targets have the best and worst hands in the league. Interesting to note the presence of multiple Giants and multiple Chiefs.
  • Rotoworld's Evan Silva is chronicling his ongoing PPR industry mock draft - I wouldn't call it lightning fast or anything, but it's enlightening to see the picks and read Silva's commentary of course. There are also 15 pages of comments...soooo...if you're having a slow day at work, head on over and add your voice.
While you noodle on the fantasy football world in mid-June (and I love you all for doing that), I'd also love for you to think about what you'd really like to see from this site this year. I've got a couple things in the works, including bringing in some of my first real contributors with FF analysis (particularly of a stats nature) in addition to my normal link fest, but if there's anything you're dying to see this summer or fall, let me know. E-mail me, leave a comment, smoke signal it my way, whatever works for you.

Also, I've heard from a handful of you that are looking for a comparison of different hosting platforms (Yahoo, CBS, MyFantasyLeague, etc) and while I certainly have my opinions, I'd sort of like to open it up to you all. Send me your comments about your favorite host site by June 25th and I'll pull together a synopsis and post it up here by the end of the month.

I love this blog, it's pretty much the only one I use for my knowledge. you take the best of the rest and post it on your site. It would be interesting to hear more of what YOU think about certain situations. i always like waiver wire talk. but they always talk about the obvious guys... i want to be a week ahead! pick up the rookie/no name that's trending up before he has his big game. That's the stuff I'm looking for! you gotta make at least one of those kind of moves to win a championship in a competitive league...

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
