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?

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J. Spiller, Beanie Wells, Ronnie Brown WR Start: Santana Moss, Legedu Naanee, Malcolm Floyd, Mike Williams (TB), Dez Bryant Sit: Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree TE Start: Chris Cooley, Todd Heap, John Carlson, Jermichael Finley Sit: Jermaine Gresham, Owen Daniels, Tony Scheffler, Jeremy Shockey, Bo Scaife Kicker Start: La

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
