May fantasy musings

After a little bit of bargaining and perhaps some disgruntled parties on both sides, my husband and I had our offer on a home in Knoxville accepted over the weekend. Sounds a bit like the NFL world these days...except for the fact that the 2011 season is still very much in limbo. Anyway, the house is 102 years old so fingers crossed that the inspection goes well...

So clearly lots of change coming to the FFLibrarian household this summer, but one thing we can all count on is the steady increase in fantasy analysis as we make our way through May.

  • First up, for those of you that are interested in testing the auction league waters, KFFL.com has a fairly thorough article with some pros and cons and the basics behind auctions in Introduction to fantasy football auction leagues.
  • Assuming that the season comes together here, Rotoworld's The 2001 Quarterback Market showcases QBs that likely to see some movement in free agency, trades, or just plain ol' release-ville. Good, worthwhile read.
  • ProFootballFocus.com's Going Deep looks at what 2010's QBs did in the land of deep passes (20+ yards). Not sure you're going to walk away with any great fantasy insights but I'm always interested in a little number crunching and thought you might agree.
  • The Fantasy Shrink (who, by the way, is a new site spearheaded by John Paulsen, the impressively accurate expert who dominated FantasyPros' weekly accuracy analysis for the 2010 season) offers up his first rankings of the season - take a look at his initial 2011 RB Rankings and 2011 WR Rankings. Another item of note from the Shrink is a PPR SOS (strength of schedule) - good stuff.
  • I enjoy a good debate over the fantasy merits of two players - read up on NoOffseason.com's Loaded Keeper Question that compares Arian Foster to Chris Johnson.
  • Finally, I know many of you in dynasty leagues are gearing up for drafts already so I've tried to include plenty of rookie linkage lately - here's another one from Dynasty League Football that follows an in progress 2011 Rookie Draft.
