Annual accuracy results are coming!

Well I think as soon as the offseason got here I just completely collapsed and stopped posting as frequently here - my apologies! As I'm sure I've made abundantly clear, I've got this adorable and increasingly fascinating, nearly 4 month old little dude on my hands and as much as I wanted to keep up my blogging routines, I think it's time I admit that I'll probably only be posting once or twice a week for a little while here.

The good news though? I finished my calculations for the annual FFLibrarian/FSTA FF Expert Rankings Accuracy Contest and I'm so psyched to share yet another year of results. There were 50 sites involved this year and the winner will be revealed at the FSTA conference next week (sadly, I won't be there) and the results will go up on the NY Times' Fifth Down shortly thereafter. I'll be sure to link over to the results from here of course. I'll have info on both the best overall performers as well as the top sites at each position...for a look back on previous years, start with this post on the 2009 results.

The current leader in the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge is shamwow; nicely done!

Now let's get to the rankings and advice for this weekend's games:
How about info about 2011?
  • Some thoughts on the changing IDP landscape as we roll into the 2011 season from the IDP Guru - 2011 Notable IDP Free Agents: Defensive Backs and Defensive Linemen.
  • FFToolbox.com's 2011 Keeper Sleepers
  • CBSSports.com's What to make of the Pats in fantasy in 2011? Really it's a broader look than just the Pats, it focuses on three players on the rise and three on the decline. I had a lot of hope for James Jones in 2010 so I'll be keeping a close eye on him to see if he's really worth another year of enthusiastic late-round drafting.

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
