Big Friday: draft results, PPR rankings and more

Greetings, fantasy football fans. Today is a lovely day here in NYC - cooler and far more bearable for those of us who are a mere 6 weeks from delivering a child; plus I'm relishing the fact that my husband is such a smarty pants that he was quoted on NPR this morning; and of course...Preseason Week 1 has officially arrived! I hope you all enjoyed the games last night and are gearing up for 3 more games this evening.

To get you all ready for the weekend, let's scope out some links for this fine Friday:
  • Many of you have asked if I'll be expanding the average rankings position spreadsheet that I pull together each year to include PPR rankings. I'll take a look around and see if there are enough Top 100 PPR rankings to create something helpful or not, though one that I would definitely include is CBSSports.com's Our Top 200 for PPR Leagues.
  • Also on the rankings front, Rotoworld continues to tweak the rankings in their draft guide and Shaking up the Rankings on Pancake Blocks reviews some of the latest player ups and downs.
  • When I saw the name of FantasyFanPlay.com's latest article, Stat-a-Palooza, I knew it would be some stats-alicious article but had no clue what a stats dump it would be. Read up for some serious numbers, mostly from the 2009 season.
  • SI's Fantasy Clicks does a nice job of giving the basics (and of course some advice) on survivor pools - plus some auction draft results from a real draft that Jay Clemons participated in recently. Gotta say I appreciate that he's upfront about this not being his best draft - equally helpful to see those sorts of draft results, no?
  • For more on the auction draft results front (as well as the PPR front) see Razzball's PPR Auction Mock Draft and see which team you think was the big winner.
  • Looks like CBSSports.com is cranking out new features yet again this year - take a look at their 2010 Power Projector, which includes player projections from both Dave and Jamey at CBS, plus Accuscore's projections, all wrapped up in an average if that's up your alley. They'll be updating this feature on a weekly basis to give you an assist in making weekly start/sit decisions.
That's all for now - remember I'll be updating that average rankings position spreadsheet over the weekend so check back on the google docs version for some of the tweaks!

Last year you turned me on to a great service that rates other websites accuracy on a weekly basis by position. I want to use them again but can not remember the name.

Help?!?

BUMP for some PPR aggregate/average rankings. Keep up the good work.

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

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
