Fantasy Football Guide 2008

August 16, 2008 | By RotoRob | comment on this post

Andy and Derek feature prominently in this year’s Fantasy Football Guide

For the second straight year, Andy and Derek both did a boatload of writing for Rotoman’s always entertaining Fantasy Football Guide. It’s a publication I’ve helped out with from time to time behind the scenes as well, so we have a long association with both his football and his baseball mags.

At any rate, the guys pitched in this year by writing the quarterback, running back, kicker and defense/special teams rankings.

Other features of this fine pub include draft analysis, cheat sheets, over 400 player profiles, position rankings, stat projections, team-by-team fantasy analysis, amock draft, and as Andy so eloquently puts it as only he can, “the whole kit and kaboodle.”

    i can’t find a copy of fantasy football guide 2008 at Wal-Mart or Books a Million or anywhere– where can i get it?

  2. RotoRob says:

    Hi Snake,

    I’ve asked the editor of the pub to let you know where the best place to find this is.


  3. Hey Snake,

    It was definitely available at Barnes and Noble and Borders a couple weeks ago. So that might be worth trying. I’d call ahead though, just in case they sold out or something.

  4. […] these forms of preparation are fantastic; the sure fire way to ensure victory is by purchasing the Fantasy Football Guide 2008. I know, I know. Hey, if T.O. and Chad Johnson self-promote, why can’t […]

    Hey Snake,

    The editor was travelling, so he didn’t get back to me until now. He said the book went on sale July 22 and it should be widely available in Barnes and Noble and Wal-Marts, as well as Borders and Books a Million. And then it does show up in some groceries and drug stores, though usually not.

    He also said that maybe next year they will be selling an electronic version, but not this year.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks guys! i had tried Borders too. but a friend of mine found it for me and got a copy for himself in the process. i don’t suppose there is a way to get a subscription?

  7. RotoRob says:

    Okay, cool. Regarding subscriptions, I’ll check with the editor again.

  8. I am told by the publisher that the costs of maintaining the subscriptions are prohibitive, and passing them along doesn’t seem like a very customer friendly thing to do. We have a similar problem with mail order.

    If you would be willing to pay a few bucks extra to have the magazine mailed to you each year, it might help to email the publisher at jbucovetsky(at)thefantasysportsguide(dot)(com) and let him know.


  9. Snake Plissken says:

    Same problem this year– can’t find the 2009 professional edition. Who’s on the cover?

  10. RotoRob says:

    Sorry, Snake. I didn’t work on this, but I will check with some of our writers who did.

    I worked on this project and received my copies in the mail on Saturday, so I would think it’ll be hitting stores any time now if it hasn’t already.

    As for your question, Larry Fitzgerald is on the cover.

  12. Snake Plissken says:

    Thanks guys. I checked back yesterday and they had just put them on the rack! I just like the way this mag is put together over the others out there. I wish I could subscribe to it so I can avoid going on “the hunt” every season. 🙂

  13. RotoRob says:

    Awesome, glad you got your copy. Ya, it’s a pain you can’t subscribe, but just think of the hunt as step one of your NFL Draft Prep!

    I’m in a 14 team keeper league that uses 16 roster spots. Here is what my “Wounded Mosquitos” ended up with after it’s 5-8 2008 campaign:

    Adrian Peterson (Min – RB)
    Marshawn Lynch (Buf – RB)
    Ryan Grant (GB – RB)
    Kevin Smith (Det – RB)
    Felix Jones (Dal – RB)
    Tashard Choice (Dal – RB)

    Calvin Johnson (Det – WR)
    Marques Colston (NO – WR)
    Dwayne Bowe (KC – WR)
    Braylon Edwards (Cle – WR)
    Santonio Holmes (Pit – WR)
    Ted Ginn Jr. (Mia – WR)

    Zach Miller (Oak – TE)

    Shaun Hill (SF – QB)

    Ryan Longwell (Min – K)

    Buffalo (Buf – DEF)

    I only get to keep 8. I was planning on these:

    1. Adrian Peterson (Min – RB)
    2. Marshawn Lynch (Buf – RB)
    3. Ryan Grant (GB – RB)
    4. Kevin Smith (Det – RB)
    5. Felix Jones (Dal – RB)
    6. Calvin Johnson (Det – WR)
    7. Marques Colston (NO – WR)
    8. Dwayne Bowe (KC – WR)

    I thought I’d see what you guys thought. Looks like Edwards still hasn’t gotten over his case of the “dropsies” and Holmes has killed me the past 2 seasons when he disappears for long stretches. I’m drafing 4th this year and plan on Knowshown Moreno if he’s still there.


  15. RotoRob says:

    Hey Snake,

    I’ll try to get one of our football writers to help you out. As an FYI, it doesn’t make much sense for you to post questions on an article that’s over a year old. In the future, use our handy “Fantasy Question?” link on the left side of the site.


  16. Snake Plissken says:

    I tried the link but I kept receiving this message:

    Access to the account was denied. Verify that your username and password are correct. Account: ‘Hotmail’, Server: ‘’, Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: ‘Forbidden’, Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 703, Error Number: 0x800CCC33

    So I just posted it here to see if anyone would see it.


  17. RotoRob says:

    Really? That’s bizarre…thanks, I’m going to look into that. I’ve asked my main football writer to answer you, but he’s travelling right now, so he will get back to you shortly. I’d look at it myself, but I’m not really a football guy.

  18. RotoRob says:

    Hi Snake,

    We just looked into that, and that link is merely a mail-to link (and it works for us) so the issue is probably on your end. We believe that this is a Hotmail issue based on the error message. So it looks like your brower probably thinks that Hotmail is your default e-mail client, whereas you are clearly using a yahoo e-mail address. Check your browser settings.

  19. Derek Jones says:


    I like your eight. It makes sense. Totally agree with you about Holmes. He and the phrase consistency don’t go together. As far as your draft, Moreno is a good option at 4. I would assume Sanchez and Mr. Detroit will come off the board first. The receivers are in weird situations. Crabtree is still out while Maclin might produce right away since he’s on the best team but there are too many options in that offense.
