First start/sit list of the 2012 season

Dudes (and fellow ladies)! I am genuinely excited to let you all know that I expect to report the results of my multi-year accuracy competition tomorrow. That's right...finally. I'll wrap up the analysis tonight and get my thoughts together into a coherent post. Come on back tomorrow for the results but for now, here are a few quick links:
  • ProFootballWeekly.com has some advice on guys you might want to have in the back of your mind as waiver wire adds in 20 players to add in-season. Not gonna lie, I hate that they start a video immediately upon opening this link - just a heads up for those of you at work or elsewhere trying to keep a low fantasy profile. 
  • Take a look at some of the latest news and notes in Roto Arcade's Falling Andre, rising Cobb and sleepy Lions.
  • I probably need to step off my Doug Baldwin love but Scott Engel's article Seahawks WRs can be fantasy gems is not only supportive of Baldwin in a PPR environment, but might be the only pro-Seattle perspective I've seen from Seattle all pre-season.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed Dynasty League Football's Who is Bryce Brown? if for nothing else than the tale of the "total circus" that seems to have been his entire college recruitment/career. Now he's in Philly and DLF has reason to be excited about him in dynasty leagues.
  • SI has their NFL fantasy 2012 Top 200 ranking up as does Juan Elway, a new site from a writer previously with TOFantasySports.
  • Check out KFFL's Risky draft picks for a handful of guys you might want to be cautious about on draft day. 
  • Let's talk defense:
  • Finally, last but not least, Draft Calc has their Start/Bench list for Week 1 up already, which includes a handful of projections for each matchup as well as some upside, risky, and monster starts. Of course we're over a month out from Week 1 but who doesn't love seeing this?

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
