These Rankings are clean

In about a week, the regular season begins, and so does the process of me being wrong in 2007.

I will be wrong many times, it is unavoidable. But after doing some final tweaks to the rankings today, I feel good about them. There were a few guys who were bothering me as we go down the wire here in the preseason. Ronnie Brown, for one. I know Cam Cameron is talking up Jesse Chatman purely as motivated for Brown, but that certainly doesn’t bode well. I moved Brown a tad, although he comes out above MJD because of the alphabet. But if you look, you’ll see Brown has the downside to finish lower and MJD the upside to finish higher.

If you’re loo […]

The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
