Fantasy football has become a 365-day a year passion for NFL fans. Whether it’s sleepers, busts, rookies or offseason movement, keeping tabs on the latest player values is vital to draft success.

Of course, one great way to prepare for your draft is by picking up NFL.com’s 2009 Fantasy Guide. There’s a ton of information that you’ll be able to use to get the step up on your competition, including over 400 player profiles and projections.

In an effort to be as up-to-date and in-depth as possible in our never-ending quest to help you win a title, we’ll be updating all of our rankings and profiles on NFL.com right up until the regular-season opener.

With that said, I’ve made a few notable changes to the wide receiver position as we inch closer and closer to training camp.

First off, Randy Moss has moved ahead of Calvin Johnson and up to third among wide receivers. As much as I like “Megatron”, the quarterback position in New England is just a little more stable than the one in Detroit.

(Sense a little sarcasm there?)

Derrick Mason announced his retirement earlier in the week and has been removed from the rankings, barring a change of heart. His absence means an increase in value for Mark Clayton, who moved up to No. 45 behind Patrick Crayton.

Demetrius Williams (No. 64) moved into our wide receiver rankings as well after the Mason retirement. He joins Torry Holt (No. 37), Nate Washington (No. 49) and Earl Bennett (No. 61) as players who’ve seen their stock rise.

A few players who’ve fallen include Michael Crabtree (No. 39), Kevin Curtis (No. 50) and Isaac Bruce (No. 60).

With so many depth-chart battles still yet to be completed, I’ll no doubt be making even more changes in the weeks and months to come. As always, be sure to check back to NFL.com for all the latest news and notes pertaining to your fantasy team.

And if you haven’t seen our 2009 Fantasy draft kit (what are you waiting for?), it will also continue be updated as we move closer to another exciting season of fantasy football!
