Updates for Free Agent Pickups for Fantasy Football
Updated - November 5th, 2015
I would usually put my free agent picks here on the homepage. However, this year I have resurrected my blog. You can check it out for information about injuries and break out performances.
After the first week ends (Tuesday morning), I will update the 2015 NFL Fantasy Football Stats section so you will can see the top performers for each position.
2015 Fantasy Football League Draft Rankings
Updated - August 27th, 2015
My final updates for the Fantasy Football Draft 2015 are ready. I have put up my draft rankings, which are the average composite of the experts from many different websites. If you would like to see all of the individual ranking, please consider purchasing the $3 FFL cheatsheet. Since there are so many different types of leagues (normal, PPR, Keeper) and so many scoring systems (4 points for QB TDs, 6 points for QB TDS, negative points for missed FGs, 1 point for every 10 yards receiving or rushing, 1 point for every 25 yards, partial point leagues, etc.), this spreadsheet will rank the players based upon overall expected performance.
In addition to the overall rank, you will find the rank by position, each player's statistics from the previous season, potential injury concerns, each player's projected statistics for this upcoming season, and the rankings from the following sources and fantasy experts: NFL.com, Michael Fabiano, Dave Dameshek, Marcas Grant, Adam Rank, Jason Smith, Yahoo.com, Brandon Funston, Andy Behrens, Brad Evans, Scott Pianowski, Dalton Del Don, FoxSports.com, Ryan Fowler, Joel Beall, Adam Meyer, John Halpin, Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard, Nathan Zegura, ESPN.com, Matthew Berry, Christopher Harris, Eric Karabell, Rotowire.com and FantasyPros.com.
I will make the overall ratings available for free on this site. However, if you would like to support the website, I would encourage you to donate $3 via paypal (link is in the Navigation bar). If you donate, I will give you the worksheet that I am using to compile these rankings. You can also receive the updated versions as the preseason progresses (instruction on Download Page). If you need help with ordering, click on the Help webpage for more instructions.
The number one reason not to have an early FFL draft comes down to 3 letters - ACL. The pads are not popping, but the knees already are. Danario Alexander (SD WR): Out - ACL; Arrelious Benn (Phi WR): Out - ACL; Joe Morgan (NO WR): Out - ACL; Jordy Nelson (GB WR): Out for Preseason with a Knee surgery.
This doesn't even account for the slew of defensive players and offensive lineman that are going down. An 18 game regular season schedule? How about we get the players through the preseason without getting hurt first? My first rankings are already out of date and need to be redone. This will be completed by next Monday, August 12th.
I have the first version of the 2015 Fantasy Football rankings completed (however, I still need to update the Draft Advice pages). I will be updating the rankings again after the first week of the Preseason if finished. The rankings will surely change if more players get injured during training camp (see Percy Harvin, Jeremy Maclin and Dennis Pitta).
I am in the process of collecting information for the 2015 Fantasy Football Draft. In the past, I have simply come up with my own list of the top players for each position. This year, I'm going to do things a bit differently.
I plan on compiling the draft rankings from a lot of different sources. Then, I will combine these draft rankings and create a mean average for players by position and overall. These rankings will include ESPN, the ESPN fantasy team, Yahoo, FFToolbox.com, FFToday.com along with others that I find along the way.
I will have the first version of my draft chart available no later than August 1st, 2015. I will also have an updated version after the 2nd, 3rd and 4th week of preseason. This is when people traditionally will have their fantasy drafts.
The latest draft dates are going to occur right before the Thursday NFL Kickoff on September 5th at 8:30PM. This game will feature the defending Superbowl champion Baltimore Ravens on the road against the Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos. The game is usually played at home for the defending champs, but there was a conflict in schedule so the game was moved to Denver.
Remember, the Fantasy Football Draft is only half of the battle. You will need to pay close attention to the injuries that happen from week to week. This is especially important for the running back position. Different leagues have different rules: some will allow you to pick up players immediately on Sunday; others will make you wait until Tuesday.
Other Games and Betting Activities
One of the other popular NFL related games is the Survivor Pools. This is the game where you pick a different team each week to win that week's game. If you win, you keep going in the pool; if you lose, you're out. I've broken down each week of the 2014 NFL survivor pool with the best match ups each week.
If you like playing online fantasy football, you may also enjoy betting on these games.
