Lots of linkage

I've got lots of links for you today that I've been culling all weekend. I also want to make sure you all know that my updated average rankings position spreadsheet will be updated later today and I'll either have it up tonight or tomorrow. I wanted to wait until the all-important Week 3 games were finished and I hope that's not too late for most of you with your drafts.

Speaking of drafts, I have several this week (including the Buffalo Wild Wings League draft tonight!) and I know that many of you do, too. If you'd like an extra place to draft and try your hand at playing against me in a sense, head on over to RapidDraft.com where my rankings and draft strategies are used for one of their avatars. Plus if you are RapidDraft.com's big winner, there's a $100K grand prize and really, who couldn't use that?

Let's get to today's links:
  • First up this morning is a look at drafting strategy from Razzball - Drafting From Positions 5-8. Having done some mock drafting this weekend, I can vouch for a lot of the advice that Razzball gives here since I feel like it matches up pretty well with some drafting moves I made.
  • Football Jabber has updated quarterback, running back, and wide receiver rankings just in time for upcoming weeknight drafts. Or try Fantasy Alarm's positional rankings here
  • And speaking of rankings, let's take a jaunt over to RapidDraft.com's Wide Receiver Projections (PPR) - Schauf notes some key player notes here as well.
  • On a sleeper note, FantasyOMatic.com has found some names you'll want on your sleeper radar - though note that Michael Bush's recent injury is worth keeping an eye on before you spring for him on draft day. 
  • Or head on over to CBSSports.com's 2010 Draft Prep: Buy-low candidates. Am liking a fair number of these names, but as always happens at this time of year, I'm not so sure how many of these guys are really true sleepers anymore...but that's a whole different discussion I'm sure.
  • How about some bold predictions for 2010? FFXtreme has some thoughts on Ray Rice, Frank Gore, and LeSean McCoy among others in Top 10 Bold Predictions: Fantasy Football 2010. Keep your eyes open for another draft kit giveaway from FFXtreme early this week (I'll take this opportunity to plug my RSS feed, my e-mail sub option, and my twitter account as ways of getting my posts to your inbox/feed reader ASAP).
  • Matthew Berry's 10 Lists of 10: preseason edition is always a good read, though that might be in some part thanks to my propensity for lists and organization...by the way, am loving Jabar Gaffney right now so I'm wishing dudes like Berry would keep the lovefest minimal so that I can still grab him at a value. 
  • I've had some of you ask about strategies and rankings for leagues with unique scoring and Razzball.com (yes, more love for Razzball) has a Two QB Fantasy Football League Strategy article - I also want to note how great these guys are about responding to questions/comments.
  • Another strategy piece, this time on the auction league front from Yahoo's Roto Arcade guys with Tip Drill: All About the Auction.
  • Football Outsiders always seem to come up with some helpful nugget of info that you wouldn't find elsewhere and might not even think to investigate. Today's nugget is a look at Which Teams Over- or Under-Report Injuries.

Thanks for the linkage nice lady and the tip on the PickemFirst. I'm loving it.

I'm liking gaffney too. I took a reach on him in my league (8th round) and got panned for doing so. If he works out it will be fun.

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
