Yes, it is that time again. The gridiron, the turf, the nachos, the sport that is American football. This can only mean one thing: Fantasy football players are getting ready to pick the players for their teams this year and the Manhattan Public Library has the resources to keep you on top of your game.
First is one awesome reference book: The ESPN pro football encyclopedia / edited by Pete Palmer, Ken Pullis, Sean Lahman, Tod foreword by Ron Jaworski.
This book has the stats for every player that was on a roster last year. An invaluable resource when trying to decide between picking Larry Johnson of the Kansas City Chiefs with the first pick in the draft, or LaDanian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers. (Personal Note: My first round pick will be Peyton Manning based on his numbers of the past 5 years.)
Second, we also have computers available for public use so you can update your roster if you cannot do so from home.
A really good online resource for all things Football is the National Football League webpage.
So sit back, grab the nachos, find the remote, and enjoy the game.
