Because fantasy football is so boring for me (currently in 2nd place at 8-3, clinched playoffs and a first round bye), I am starting to look for 2008 projections. Bill James projections are out at Fangraphs if you guys want to check it out.

Also, CHONE projections are out. You can find them here: http://lanaheimangelfan.blogspot.com/. I put it in an Excel sheet and sorted by K9 for pitchers and HR for hitters. If you would like me to email you a copy, then PM me with your email addy. If you find other websites and sources, please post in this thread.
