Knology Pricing

Transcript of a chat session I had with Knology while trying to find out the actual price after I received a very enticing offer in the mail today.  This isn’t funny, or in anyway unique – I just thought it offered some insight into the way these cable companies think we’re stupid. They ended up […]

NCAA BowlShit

Flipping through the channels to see what awesome NCAA football matchup the bowl gods have for us on New Years Eve. Two 6-6 teams (Texas A&M and Northwestern) are playing in the “Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas”. WTF? It should be called the “Mediocre Bowl” or the “If We Had A Real Championship Tournament […]

SEC beats area high schools

Tennessee starts the year kicking some butt.  They slaughtered that perennial national title contender football powerhouse Our Lady of Mercy – Umm, I mean Western Kentucky.  At home. What’s the deal with supposedly “power” conferences padding stats by playing whatever area high school team needs some cash? Props to Alabama, Georgia, and LSU for actually […]

Gotta love it

Just reading a player news post on NFL.com and saw this note about Derrick Mason: “He is expected to contribute the most among players who have returned from retirement.” Sorry, I don’t see anyway to link directly to the post, so you may have to search for it.  But you gotta love the dry humor […]

Fantasy Football Insurance

I just saw this site and had to post it here.  You can now purchase insurance on your fantasy football players!  They appear to be serious.  I’m gonna have some fun with the guys in my league this year with this….  🙂 gk

Why Peterson isn’t number one

Q: What do RB’s DeAngelo Williams, Matt Forte, Michael Turner, Maurice Jones-Drew, Thomas Jones, LaDanian Tomlinson, Steve Slaton, and Brian Westbrook all have in common? A: They all scored more fantasy points in PPR leagues last year than Adrian Peterson. I have the #1 pick in my PPR league his year.  I’ve never had the […]

Top 100 PPR Ranking

I’ve spent quite a bit of time on this, so hopefully it’ll help you in your PPR fantasy draft.  For better or worse, this is how I currently rank the top 100 NFL players for fantasy value in a PPR league. Lots of things are taken into account here, but there are quite a few […]

PPR Posts

Good article on KFFL.com today regarding PPR value.  Check it out “Point Per Reception Perception“. KFFL also has updated PPR rankings as of today.  Not the same as mine, but then again, they’re not me.  🙂 It’s one of my favorite PPR sites.  Be sure to check out all their fantasy football articles at KFFL.com/fantasy-football […]

Saturday Night Fantasy Thoughts

Since I’m normally sitting on my butt reading anything remotely fantasy relevant on Saturday nights, I decided to do a stream of consciousness type of post.  I’m thinking about doing this each week.  Who knows, maybe it’ll eventually become known worldwide as SNFT.   Sure it will…. It’s just getting to halftime of the  Redskins/Steelers game, […]

2009 Fantasy Football PPR Ranking – Aug 22

Here’s my second run through offensive rankings for point per reception (PPR) leagues.  As in my first run, keep in mind that I came up with these rankings based on how valuable I think players will be overall in PPR league scoring in 2009.  If you are in a “standard” scoring league these rankings will […]
