HOF Game Day

Happy Hall of Fame Game Day. So the regular season is still several weeks away, yes. But today, my friends, is the first football game of the season. I know this is not a big game for most of us but it signifies the start of football season. I'm sitting here watching the Ravens and Redskins scrimmage on the NFL Network (and Brian Billick who is wearing a ridiculous straw hat) and feeling that familiar thrill of watching football again. It has been a long 6 months without football so for now, scrimmages and HOF games will do just fine, thank you.

So onto fantasy info:

I've been following DR U Fantasy Football GURU's player profiles for quite some time now and am pleased to see their Top 100 Fantasy Football Players Cheat Sheets post. I will be adding this to my spreadsheet of average ranking positions soon.

Second, Fantasy Football Goat alerted me to Donovan McNabb's blog - I'd love to know of any other NFL players with blogs. McNabb's blog is on Yardbarker and there's a list of other athlete bloggers including NFLers Mark Clayton, Bart Scott [photo: AP], and Chris Henry (TEN). Pretty interesting stuff and I'm intrigued by the way blogs, social networking, etc are bringing fans in more personal contact with players. Makes me wonder how we will interact with players in say 20 years. Could be a lot more interactive - completely different.

Finally, are you interested in Jerricho Cotchery and whether or not he'll pan out into a fantasy star this year? Check out Fanball's Cotch Rocket for more info.

Dear Librarian,
Billick's straw hat isn't THAT ridiculous. In fact, we think it's rather fashionable.

Hey Librarian,
Do you have the top 100 for any of these experts from last year? I've found a few, and compared them to the actual season's Top 100, and I've found that the experts are about equally bad. That's too bad because it would be fun to have an average draft position with weighted experts.
Great question, Aaron. I'll see what I can find from these guys for 2006 and will post what I can find.

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
