Monday Wrap-up

I have one question - where was Deion Branch? Seriously, where was he? Was he somehow trapped in the locker room all night, unable to make it to the field? Was he even targeted at all? The game wasn't on in Colorado so I'm left wondering how he put up a big fat goose egg. Not that I was expecting an all-star night from him, but something - SOMETHING. Fortunately Tony Romo's massive performance bailed me out in that league (this game was crucial - I'm playing my nemesis). However, there are gaping holes in some of my other leagues and I'm sweating the Monday night games this week.

Another thought - I'm developing some fanlove (intense - almost frightening - interest in a football player for their fantasy promise and/or production) for Brandon Stokley. Is that only because I'm already a Broncos fan, or is that legit? Confirmation that Stokley is going to be a fantasy beast or any other thoughts are welcome.

Now let's turn to the experts to get their opinions on this first weekend of NFL action:
  • Rotoworld's Football Daily Dose - either read this every week on Rotoworld or elect to have it e-mailed your way on Monday morning; it's a nice summary of all things football from the weekend and who you should and shouldn't be worried about from a fantasy stance.
  • I'll be posting more links to waiver wires on Wednesday, but Bruno Boys already have some of the waiver juice ready for you Work The Wire, The Waiver Wire - Week 1
  • SI's Sunday Best - Week 1 lays out the fantasy studs, duds and surprises of each game; I'm kind of liking their FanNation site and don't remember it from last year - new addition for 2007?
  •'s Box Score Bandit also provides a quick fantasy overview game-by-game

Pretty funny. The same goose egg exists in my starting line-up... and I too have been wondering what exactly happened in Seattle.

Unfortunately, I didn't have Romo to bail me out, and McNabb's number's weren't that stellar either.

Congrats on your win though!

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.

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
