I used to plan my fantasy football drafts meticulously. I used to create spreadsheets with my own personal rankings of players, established only after poring over any number of inexplicably pricey preseason fantasy guides (Eight dollars, Street & Smith's? BLOW ME) and scouring numerous online mock drafts. I don't do this anymore, because I'm lazy and because I quickly realized that Yahoo's auto-rankings are just as arbitrary and unreliable as my own. I am not as invested in my drafts as I should be, and that's a shame. As always, I blame the children. If you're someone like me who has a draft coming up soon, and you need to cram for it as you would a chemistry exam, fear not, for it's time for the annual Deadspin fantasy guide ... FLESH FOR FANTASYYYYYYYYY!!!
Joining me once again for our preview is Yahoo fantasy expert Andy Behrens. You can get your preview two ways: via podcast (available here or in iTunes), or you can get my write-up of it down below. As always, this preview is all killer, no filler. We go through every team just to remind you who's gone where and shit like that. Cedric Benson is a Packer now. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THIS. Today, we're tackling the NFC. (You can find the AFC preview here.) Let's go.
