I absolutely love it when I have a full slate of articles to share with you guys - seriously, my browser is chock full of excellent analyses and pretty much everything you need to get psyched about the 2011 season (for those interested, at the time this post is published, there still isn't a deal yet...). Let's dive right in to today's links without further ado:
  • Rankings, oh rankings - love 'em:
  • You all know I love stats, probably more than your average fantasy footballer and I'm sure I sometimes get carried away with stories that the stats tell. Rotoworld's When the stats deceive is a nice reality check - take a look for fluky stats/trends that might cause you to overdraft or underdraft a player.
  • Jay Clemons has taken his fantasy talents to the National Football Post - check out his classic smorgasbord style of fantasy info in These Ten Commandments. Speaking of smorgasbord (and this is a complete aside from fantasy sports), those of you who happen to live in NYC ought to make a point of cruising by Smorgasburg, which we hit up in Williamsburg last weekend for some tastiness from local food vendors. I wasn't sure I was painfully cool enough to hang with the Williamsburg hipsters (cruising around with a baby is an automatic knock on that front), but the food offerings were great and the crowd was entertaining.
  • A couple of free agent reads for you:
  •'s Matt Waldman never disappoints with his weekly Gut Check article - read up on this week's Dangerous Plays - Running Backs for a look at 5 guys whose risk outweighs the reward at their current ADP. 
  • We'll wrap things up with a draft strategy piece from - Assessing early round risk - which analyzes the strategy behind drafting a QB early.

Did you receive my email from a few days ago requesting your analysis (ranking) of fantasy football pre-draft rankings from 2010?

Hey Kyle,

I can't speak for the Librarian, but this site is good to see who has the most accurate rankings, both pre-draft and week-to-week:

Your link is pointing to the wrong link. It goes to the Matt Waldman, Dangerous Plays link.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
