The 2010 NFL regular season now is less than two weeks away, which means it is time to do a little fall cleaning before stuff really starts to hit the fan. Plenty of links today, so take your time:

Here are today's great reads:
- There is a lot to talk about with the New York Jets from a fantasy perspective. Two good running backs and incredible depth at wide receiver all of a sudden. One of their wide receivers, Jerricho Cotchery, is not getting much love from fantasy owners this summer, however. Perhaps he should. [Hatty Waiver Wire Guru]
- Fantasy owners always are looking for a way to get ahead of the competition. There are so many things to read and follow on the internet, it is almost overwhelming (almost). Another way to get ahead of the competition this season is to listen to fantasy football podcasts on your mp3 player. That way you can always be connected to good fantasy information! [Football Jabber]
- Five underrated players for the 2010 fantasy season. Will mention two of them here: Wes Welker had a miraculous recovery from a late-season knee injury and is maintaining good fantasy value. Arian Foster, meanwhile, is the clear-cut No. 1 running back in Houston and should be moving up everyone's draft chart. [FanHouse]
- If you are looking for good late-round fliers in fantasy drafts, there are at least six names you need to know. For example, Kareem Huggins is a surging name on fantasy boards after getting promoted to the No. 2 job in Tampa Bay. Good name to know when some guy in your league drafts Derrick Ward (ha!). [Pancake Blocks]
- Fantasy owners love the third-year wide receiver theory. Could be breakout seasons for some of these guys, but two of them—DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon—already had their breakout seasons. Now, can they improve on their productive 2009 seasons? [Bruno Boys]
- Finally, the Fantasy Juggernaut Index continues to roll toward the regular season. Matt Ryan and the Falcons come in at No. 9, Brett Favre and the Vikings at No. 8, and Matt Schaub and the Texans at No. 7. Three good fantasy QBs right there. [Roto Arcade]
