I'm not the only librarian out there...

...who loves fantasy football. And perhaps more importantly, my fellow librarian-also-blogger understands why I think my research/library background aids in unearthing helpful fantasy football info. For those interested in the deep, dark librarian-ish details, check out the Research Quest blog that declared fantasy sports the national sport of librarians. Yes, a national sport for librarians. Nice work, Paul.

For those wanting more fantasy football info and less library talk, don't worry, I've got you covered.
1. Rotoworld's Evan Silva gives valuable QB drafting advice, particularly for those of you who end up not taking a top QB...Evan's advice? Hold out and pair up some later round QBs as your strategy for winning. Interesting stuff in Targeting Mid-Round QBs.

2. A free draft guide? Wait, that actually exists these days? Yes, it is chock full o' info - see the Fox Fantasy Draft Guide for rankings, sleepers, busts, and team reports.

3. Read up on the Chester Taylor vs Adrian Peterson battle for as the Vikings #1 RB at SI's Camp Battles: Minnesota RB [photo: Ted S. Warren, AP].

Excellent resource. I'm looking forward digging through your site.

Would you be interested in a league of librarians? You're probably in a bunch, but my post on the ALA list serve generated 10 people interested in joining a league.

Thanks for the link.

My wife is a librarian and I thought about telling her about your blog...but the fantasy football world is mine and I don't know what I would do if Fantasy Football Lee and Married Lee's worlds collided. Selfish...I know.

Very amusing, Lee. And I'm intrigued. How do you keep your worlds from colliding every Sunday during the fall? I turn into such a stats monger, NFL news fiend, and complete fantasy football nut in the fall that there is really no separating it from the rest of me. Yes, it's sad. I applaud you for having some separation from FF! Fortunately my husband also plays FF and gets this - while he doesn't jump out of bed on Sunday mornings to run to the computer/tv like me, he isn't staring at me with a look of total confusion and amazement like my mom and sister do.

Hi Paul - Enjoy perusing the site and I'd love to hear of any favorite places you have for getting your FF research done. I am definitely reaching my saturation point for FF leagues, but I am still interested in joining up with a bunch of librarians. How about this - if you need someone to balance off the league numbers, let me know, otherwise I'll just hope for updates on which librarian is dominating every once in awhile. How does that sound?
