Also, if you are a first time reader of these books, the Football Outsiders guys do a great job of explaining all of their stats, what they mean, and how they come about them. This gives you a great understanding of what they are trying to accomplish, and makes it easy for the reader to understand.
Again, as always, a much read for all football fans that want to know more about the game.
The only complaint I have is the seeming lack of specific subject essays from previous editions. Bring those back guys!
While the FO Almanac is an excellent source for anyone interested in fantasy football, it provides a lot of other interesting and anecdotal information. Even casual fans who are not stat-heads or fantasy sports enthusiasts can enjoy it. Besides individual and team projections, there's a section on great quotes, brief essays on every team's prior year performance and current year's outlook, a summary of strategic misconceptions and truths, and a section on college football.
