Draft Numero Uno

My first draft happened yesterday and as I've mentioned, a friend drafted on my behalf since I was on an airplane. The draft turned out pretty well - I'm posting my team below in order of drafting (I've put the overall draft number in parentheses; it's a 12-team league and I was drafting 9th). I'm feeling pretty good about it as long as Tony Scheffler is in good shape and playing like the great TE I know he can be. I'm still on vacation right now but when I return later this week, I'll have some posts chock full of the latest in fantasy news for those with drafts still to me; I still have 4 more drafts - though one is for my brother-in-law and one is just a 4-round keeper league.

So without further ado, here's my first 2007 FF team - any feedback?
1. Laurence Maroney (9)
2. Cedric Benson (16)
3. Marc Bulger (33)
4. Marques Colston (40)
5. Baltimore (57)
6. Darrell Jackson (64)
7. Julius Jones (81)
8. Jerricho Cotchery (88)
9. Ben Roethlisberger (105)
10. Michael Turner (112)
11. Derrick Mason (129)
12. Robbie Gould (136)
13. Anthony Gonzalez (153)
14. Tony Scheffler (160)
15. Adrian Peterson (Bears) (177)

I'm surprised Adrian Peterson fell that far. That's a great pick for the fifteenth round - especially since he's had a nice pre-season.

Also, Baltimore in the 5th was a little high, but you'll have a good defense this year.

Not bad considering you were on an airplane! Good luck this season... and thanks for a great blog.

I'll have you know that when your friend took Benson in round two it crushed me and threw my whole draft out the window.

tc that isn't the same Adrian Peterson that is a rookie this year out of Oklahoma. It's the Bears backup. BUT...he is the guy that I see with the possibility to have an out of nowhere break out season if anything were to happen to Benson. They love him in Chicago and he has always done well when given the chance to play.

Thanks for pointing that out Lee. I hadn't noticed first time around.

It makes a little more sense now.

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
