2012 Fantasy Football Spreadsheets are ready!

Published on August 16, 2012, by in NFL.

Be prepared on your draft day. I’ve been in pay pools for seven years now and have tweaked these spreadsheets into the versions you see now.

The first spreadsheet contains historical 2011 NFL stats for offense (QB, RB, WR, TE).

The second spreadsheet I swear by on draft day. There are online tools popping up for this sort of thing, but I always find myself going back to a trusty excel spreadsheet. This one works great for offline drafts too, so print them out!

Why share them now? Because sharing is caring. Enjoy. Any constructive feedback is appreciated!

Take me to the free fantasy football spreadsheets!


Rookie Relevance

Published on August 16, 2012, by in NFL.

Rookies can have a big impact on your team, especially in contrast to how late you can grab them in your league draft. You’re not always going to get a Cam Newton, but a player you can rely on for your bye-week or when one of your starters goes down with injury is certainly hiding among the newcomers of the 2012-2013 season.

Who among the new draft class will prove to be a force in their first season and what can you expect from them? Here’s a look at a few of 2011’s notable rookies, their typical fantasy results, as well as their class of 2012 counterparts.

Annual Fantasy Football Draft Spreadsheets Update

Published on August 15, 2012, by in NFL.

It’s that time of year again! The popular fantasy football spreadsheet to help you prepare for your draft and organize your picks on draft day has been sent out to a few early birds for testing. After feedback and a few tweaks, I’ll post it here asap.

The downloadable draft tool will include:

  • 2011 offensive NFL stats
  • 2012 projected offensive stats from Yahoo! Sports
  • NFL Schedule Grid with a bye week cheat sheet
  • NFL Strength of Schedule for weeks 14-16
  • A fantasy draft board for notes to use during your online draft (in a separate workbook).

These fantasy football spreadsheets were originally posted on my Excel Ninja site, which has been neglected, but will be available on here on FantasyCube from now on.

I will also add an IDP spreadsheet for defensive stats if enough people ask for it…


The Bengals Have the Midas Touch

Published on June 11, 2012, by in NFL.

Clark Judge at CBS wrote an excellent article today about the recent deft moves by Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown. Many thought it would be a long rebuilding process when they cut Pro Bowlers in 2008, the year Carson Palmer got hit by the injury bug. They’ve turned that into a first and second rounder for Palmer and the drafting of a franchise QB and WR in the same year.

2012 NFL Draft Day 1 – Movin’ On Up

Published on April 26, 2012, by in NFL.

Nobody should be remotely shocked at the first two picks of day one of the 2012 NFL draft, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t any interesting results with the remaining selections. Teams were moving up at a frantic pace throughout the night, resulting in the most trade-ups in the history of the draft. Here are the top 10 selections in the 2012 NFL Draft.

The Best Day to Start

Published on April 26, 2012, by in Blog.

Is today. We’ve started, not coincidentally on NFL’s 2012 Draft Day. I’m tentative to say the words “launch” or “soft launch”, as all that has been done so far is a WordPress install, selecting a basic off-the-shelf theme and opening a few social accounts. So instead, I’ve settled on the word “start”. Starting is often the hardest part.

There are lots of reasons not to start:
Who will read these posts? (at this point, no one, not even Googlebot)
What if our writing is terrible? (it probably is, we have no journalism degrees)
How do I handle negative comments? (the Internet is full of trolls, just keep writing)
What if I run out of things to write about? (we won’t, the NFL is a soap opera for men)

Not to mention social pressures and the inevitible questions:
What will my friend’s think?
How will it make money?
Where do you find the time?

So we’ve taken all that into consideration, and decided to start writing.
