It’s time for another Fantasy Faceoff between Fantasy FB Pundit and I. According to the official scorer here at ThePigskinGuy.com, I’m currently undefeated in our faceoffs. Pundit will try to get in the win column by arguing Percy Harvin, as I argue for Victor Cruz. Let’s just say I don’t like his chances. Here we go with Cruz vs. Harvin…

I finish up my updated position rankings with wide receivers. After a lot of moving around my receivers are finally beginning to look like a finished product. I never thought I would be saying that back in April but there wasn’t much movement in my Top 40 for the first time since I started the rankings, which means were getting close to the finish line. Here are my Top 100 fantasy wide receivers for 2012.

In our latest edition of Fantasy Faceoff, Fantasy FB Pundit and I battle it out over Jahvid Best and James Starks. Following my resounding victory in the first Fantasy Faceoff we did, I thought I’d be a good host and give Pundit a fighting chance this time, so I let him take Best, while I argue for Starks. You know, something tells me since I’m the one who writes these introductions and has editing powers to the blog, by my crazy gorilla math I may end up undefeated in Faceoffs at the end of the summer. Just a hunch. So here is the battle of running backs being drafted on average in Round 6. Who do you prefer? Best or Starks?

I’m finishing up my updated position ranking with tight ends and receivers. I look at tight ends here and I’ll hit receivers later on in the week. Like quarterbacks and running backs, I’m starting to settle on tight ends, especially the Top 20. However, I’m still tinkering with the bottom half of my ranking as training camps approach. Here now are my Top 40 fantasy tight ends for 2012.

I continue to update my position rankings with a look at running backs. I feel the running backs are finally starting to fall into place for me. This was the first time I really felt good after I was done ranking them since I started back in April. So as of mid-July I’m feeling good with quarterbacks, running backs and tight ends. That just leaves receivers. Don’t even get me started on receivers. Anyway, here are my updated Top 75 fantasy running backs for 2012.

It’s been a month since I updated my rankings, so I’ll be hitting each position over the next week. Here’s how it’s going to go down for the rest of the summer. I’ll be updating my preseason positional rankings three more times. This week, when training camps start and then I’ll release my final preseason rankings the week of August 13. With most fantasy drafts taking place in mid-late August now, I think that makes the most sense. Quarterback is the one position that’s pretty set but there are still a few movers. Here are my updated Top 40 fantasy quarterbacks for 2012.

I have no idea why but people are always asking me to give them fantasy football advice. If I could single out one piece of advice I wish every single person would follow it would be the following: If you’re one of those owners who spends the two weeks after your draft doing nothing but patting yourself on the back over how great your team is and how smart you are, stop doing it.

Now I’m not saying every owner needs to start offering trades the second the draft clock expires like I do. I understand I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum. I fully admit I have a problem. However, every experienced and successful fantasy owner knows the first thing you do once the draft is over is look at the waiver wire. Did a player you like somehow slip through the cracks? Who’s still available you should keep your eye on? Wait, no one drafted Dustin Keller? Why is Kellen Winslow my TE2 then?

I’m going to throw out a few names at you: Brandon Lloyd, Antonio Brown, Peyton Hillis, DeMarco Murray, Demaryius Thomas, Victor Cruz, Laurent Robinson and Cam Newton. You ever hear of any of them? As important as we try and make the draft out to be, those are just some of the important players that weren’t selected in a majority of fantasy leagues in either 2010 or 2011. So to say there’s still a lot of value to be had once the draft is over is an understatement.

Now sometimes knowing who these guys will be is close to impossible. Last summer I was advising people not to forget about Thomas because he would be returning from injury during the season. However, I could have listed 100 sleepers and still not mentioned Robinson or Cruz, so this is far from an exact science. That doesn’t mean we can’t start trying to identify these players as soon as possible though.
