Unexpected developments

Well I can officially report that Hurricane Earl hasn't quite panned out as expected here in Brooklyn. As in a total lack of rain (so far) and anything more than a casual breeze (so far). Along with most of the eastern seaboard, I was all set for a rather different day of weather. I'll call that a very good thing, just unexpected. Pretty sure Montario Hardesty, LenDale White, Byron Leftwich, and Kris Brown are all well aware of that I-was-expecting-something-else feeling...there's lots of news being churned out these days between injury reports and roster cuts. Stay on top of it all with sites like Rotoworld, my personal favorite for news.

As you all get ready for the long weekend, hopefully these links will help out with any last minute draft prep you might need to do. In just a few days we'll be looking at start/sit recommendations for Week 1 - wow, time is flying!

  • Rotoprofessor's final rankings are up - each of the rankings comes with some player observations/ranking notes as seen here with the top 60 WRs.
  • Or scope out Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy's 2010 Player Rankings and Projections - both PPR and non-PPR rankings are available here.
  • Roto Arcade's ADP Progress Report reflects a lot of ADP changes that I've seen live and in person during recent drafts. I can see the rest of you are demonstrating your Gaffney love, too. Awesome. 
  • Reasons to still keep Julian Edelman on your radar this season from USA Today's Fantasy Joe in The slot: Julian Edelman provides value even if Wes Welker stays healthy.
  • Or for other specific player insight, see's Catch these two on the way up that focuses on Mike Sims-Walker and Michael Crabtree in particular.
  • There have been quite a few position battles playing out over training camp and the preseason games. Rotoworld's Adam Levitan takes a look at 25 big battles noting who the winner is and who you might want to focus on in drafts.
  • I'll be honest, I haven't really been concentrating on RB handcuffs during drafts this year. Perhaps that will be my demise. So be more prepared than I have been and read Football Jabber's Top Five Backup Running Backs to Draft.
If I can find time this weekend to get another post up, I will. Otherwise enjoy your Labor Day weekends and the start of college football...I for one can't wait to watch my Northwestern Wildcats beat up on Vandy tomorrow (Go Cats!).

Along the lines of the 25 position battles that you linked (thanks), if you see a summary depth chart (QB, WR, RB, & TE) for each team after the big cut day today, would you include it in a future post?

Thanks and happy Labor Day weekend to you as well. I married a Vandy grad so I can't comment on the Wildcats.
