Preseason Week 2 wrap-up

Hope you all found some time in your weekend to watch a little preseason action, but if not, you've come to the right place. I've got several recaps for you and a handful of drafting advice.

Speaking of drafts, many of you know that I run a big, 72-team, 6 conference FFLibrarian Monster League made up of FFLibrarian readers. Two of the conferences (conf 5 and 6) are conducting slow, e-mail drafts and the results of their drafts are unfolding here.

In case you missed it, I've been working on the annual average position rankings spreadsheet and I'm in clean-up mode for the document to make it hopefully even more helpful. When I've got the edits in, look for another post here with the excel version. For now, here's the google docs version

Hello FFL,
I am new to Fantasy Football and am starting my second year in a dynasty league (my husband needed a manager for one that did not want to play again...their team was bad).
There are a lot of weird rules I am not completely sure of yet, but for the most part we can keep the majority of our players.
After talking to my husband he said I have ok starting wide receivers, but no "depth". And, all by one of my running backs are horrible. The only good news appears to be my Quaterbacks since I have an Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck.
Anywho, sorry for the rambling message, but I would really like your opinion on your top 15 wide receivers and running backs that are new to the league or maybe other teams would not have.
Thank you so much for your help,
Tina

some of the links on this post point to the same articles ?
Tina, sounds like you're in need of some rookie rankings. Try Dynasty League Football's Top 50 Rookie Rankings: http://dynastyleaguefootball.com/rankings/top-50-dynasty-rookie-rankings/

Anon, thanks for the heads up on the repeat links. I do that every once in awhile when I'm not paying enough attention. They should be corrected now!

OK, thoughts please. I am trying to decide on my keeper - Jamaal Charles who would be my second round pick or Jimmy Graham who would be my seventh round pick (I still cannot believe I got him in the seventh round last year.)

And huge congratulations on Baby Number 2! I know I am a bit late on the news, but so happy for you.

I want to pick your brain too....
I have a team in a 12 team PPR keeper league. I can keep 3. I have Arian Foster, Ray Rice, Alfred Morris and Brandon Marshall. Who should I keep?
My daughters both go to Univ of Tenn and are very reliable if you ever need a baby sitter! Go Vols!
For making a successful team we should be known a lot of things. The next most important thing you can do to ensure success in fantasy sports is RESEARCH. fantasy football bye weeks

I had no idea the team will be so powerful with just so little changes.

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

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
