    The Seattle Seahawks have signed former Raiders tight end Zach Miller, who will now be paired up (at least temporarily, barring a trade) with John Carlson. If they keep both guys, that should at least give them some nice options in the passing game along with Sidney Rice. Now if only they had a quarterback…

    In other news, running back Jerious Norwood has been signed by the St. Louis Rams to backup Steven Jackson. Not sure how much fantasy value has unless Jackson is injured, considering Norwood has injury-worries of his own.

    Now things are getting interesting…or not. 

    The Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts have new quarterbacks! However, they’re probably not guys you want on your fantasy team. The Colts signed Ball State quarterback Nate Davis, most likely as a third stringer. The Seahawks signed California University’s Josh Portis, also hoping to get the third string gig.

    Let’s get to some big name signings!

      Eh, the Mark Hezrlich to the Giants was moderately interesting. Great story and he’s talented enough to make a difference. Probably not much for fantasy though.

        I kind of wish the Patriots had taken a chance on him, but I’m sure Belichick has something up his sleeves.

    Edgerrin “the Edge” James is back in the NFL, after signing a one year deal with the Seattle Seahawks. I find it a bit surprising that it took this long for him to find a team that was in need of his services, but he found one where he will immediately compete for playing time with starter Julius Jones. James was fairly effective down the stretch for the Cardinals last season and should help the Seahawks running game quite a bit…although I bet Julius Jones isn’t too happy (and he is immediately a bit less appealing in your league’s draft.)

      I am looking for some good input on how to draft this year in my fantasy league. My league is pretty regular, no idp, except that the QB earns 6 points for a touchdown. All the literature, podcasts, etc., only seem to offer advice on either the more traditional leagues or idp leagues. Any input on where to go for the info I am looking for would be much appreciated, ie mock drafts etc., and if you have any advice yourself that would also be great.

        Matt, the leagues we participate in all reward six points for passing touchdowns, so you’re not too big of an exception. You’re comment gave me the idea for a post on basic strategy in the early rounds, so hopefully I can get it out this afternoon/night sometime (hopefully before your draft!) Stay tuned…

        In the meantime, here is the draft results from the Yahoo! Family and Friends league, but that rewards four points for passing touchdowns. There is only a slight difference in the draft strategy though with six point passing touchdowns, which is that the top quarterbacks become a bit more important, but hopefully I’ll be able to elaborate in my upcoming post. Take a look at the results anyways just start getting a feel for what round players are going in and how long you can wait for a certain player you’re targeting.

    Housh's a Hawk. Now to figure out where that puts him. 

    Now that we know T.J. Houshmandzadeh (whose name I can just now finally spell from memory) is officially headed to Seattle, I’m trying to figure out where to move him on my cheat sheet. Given that he’ll be 32 around the start of next season, he’s obviously someone to approach with caution in keeper leagues, but for redraft purposes, I’m probably even more enthusiastic about him than most.

    This isn’t the most exciting fantasy situation he could have landed in, but it’s far from the worst. Housh will be Bobby Engram on steroids (er… you know what I mean). He’ll catch a hundred passes and get a ton of red-zone looks.

    The only wideouts I can say for sure that I like more than Housh at this point are Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Randy Moss, and Steve Smith. After that, a lot will depend on the draft and the preseason, but I think it’s safe to say that he’ll fall in the top ten for me.
