The Injury Hawk & The Round 2 Selection Debate

I can think of few things that unravel a championship fantasy team like an injury. We all have to weigh the injury factor on draft day when we're staring down the Clinton Portis decision. Or the Donovan McNabb decision. Or the Warrick Dunn decision [photo: Streeter Lecka, Getty Images]. Or the Kevin Jones decision (the list goes on...). You've got to be a hawk when it comes to injuries - so for some assistance turn to SI's The Hurting.

On another note, I've found an interesting disparity between those who are picking up another RB in the 2nd round versus those who are going with a WR in the second round. Gregg Rosenthal makes a good case for picking up a WR in his blog, Pancake Blocks. However in 2007 Wide Receiver Profiles, is convincing in their argument that this year there is great depth at the WR position and missing out on an RB2 to get one of the few top WRs could be more damaging in the long run. To me, so much of it depends on your draft position and competition of course. Check out that WR article for a nice synopsis on basically all WRs you'd ever even consider drafting.

WR maybe deeper, but there is no clear cut top wideout

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.

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
