FF Questions This Week

Since this live chat I'm doing (see the chat box on the right side) isn't foolproof and I might be offline when some of you have questions, I thought I'd post some of the questions that came across while I was gone and get my responses out there. Hope the info isn't coming too late for any of you!

Also, I am working on an IDP post for this afternoon so keep your eyes open for that. And I'll keep updating the Start/Sit and Waiver post that I put up earlier this week.

Questions that have come up this week:

1. When do you bite the bullet and git rid of Terry Glenn? I have Wes Welker and Amani Toomer available as Free Agents?
My response: Honestly, I have already dropped Glenn from my keeper league. Might be premature but if Crayton performs well in his absence, who knows how much action Glenn will see once he's healthy enough to come back. I doubt he'll be rushed back in and at 33, he's not exactly an NFL spring chicken. Not to mention the fact he just had his 2nd knee surgery in 6 weeks. Welker was certainly getting a lot of looks from Brady in Week 1 and I think they'll have a nice little chemistry going. Toomer looked pretty great in Week 1, I thought, so I'd be most excited about him...but that all depends on Eli's status. If Eli is well, I say pick up Toomer in place of Glenn.

2. Derrick Ward or Brandon Jackson?
Okay, I've seen this question 3 times now in the past 36 hours so I'm becoming an expert at answering it. I think all this comes down to is the GB defense vs the Giants defense. I would much rather run against the Giants D, so I say go with Brandon Jackson. Both are relatively untested runners, both could be kind of big question marks. But I say go with BJax and see what happens.

3. I need to start 3 WRs from the following: Marques Colston, Darrell Jackson, Ronald Curry, Vincent Jackson.
Okay, my bias for Denver is going to show here. Sure, Curry had a good week last week but can he really compete against Bly and Champ Bailey? Don't think so. Go with Colston and the Jacksons. All three of them had pretty poor performances this week but I think they'll rebound this week. The iffiest one being Vincent Jackson against the NE D. But I'd rather have Rivers throwing to my WR than McCown (or will it be Culpepper??).

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
