Delivering the goods… on time!

You know those people who are early for everything? Well, I’m not one of those people. No matter how much time I set aside or how well I plan, I inevitably end up scrambling to meet some deadline or show up at least 5 minutes late for a given appointment. While I recognize it’s not ideal and certainly irritating, it’s just how I roll.

Understanding that I’ve tried – and failed – for years to become perfectly punctual, you can imagine my disdain for those people who make it look easy. They’re always so stinking calm and put together. They’re breathing is never labored and they rarely have to dig through their purse/pockets for something (God, anything!) to blot their foreheads with. I envy these droids people.

I suppose that’s part of the reason I’m a huge football fan. Timing is such a crucial part of being successful in sports that I am consistently wowed by the athletes and coaches who know what to do and exactly when to do it. Sure a huge part of that is instinct, but to have the instinct to be on time is both baffling and awe inspiring to me.

When it comes to fantasy football, however, I’ve got all the time in the world to prepare. While I will absolutely work myself into a frenzy up until the very last allotted second during an actual draft, I will mock draft with Peyton-like precision and Brady-esque poise.

This time every off-season, I ironically begin the process early, well before the NFL has even begun their own draft. In doing so, I’ve discovered that many sites don’t post up-to-date ADP stats. The guys at Dynasty Football Warehouse, on the other hand, are those infuriating son-of-a-guns who make the rest of us look like flailing procrastinators. Their dynasty and rookie ADP info is spot on and as well timed as Ray Lewis’s retirement.

If you’re interested in dynasty and want to get a head start on the 2013 fantasy season, I highly recommend you check out the Average Draft Position tables on the DFW site. Here are a few links:

But what if you’re more of a redraft fan? Not to worry. The boys at the ‘house have you covered with their redraft site as well. Truthfully, I’d be really annoyed by their breezy precision if I didn’t find it so darn helpful.

Be sure to peruse both sites for an impressive stream of off-season content. There’s no guarantee it will prevent you from logging on an hour late to your draft in the fall, but it’ll make you feel better about yourself until then!
