Start/Sit and Pickups for Week 2

It's Tuesday morning and there are already some start/sit and waiver wire sites cranking out predictions. I'll be updating this post as the week goes on, some check back for even more start/sit and pickup links.

New start/sit links:
  • Pigskin Addiction's Weekly Studs and Duds - Week 2
  • The Hazean's Wavier Wire Wednesday: Week 2
  • FantasyMojo's Week 2 Overachievers - a list of "off the radar" guys who you might be able to squeeze into your lineup for some solid points this week.
  •'s Week 2 Rankings - the full rankings lists are not free, but the top ascending and descending players in each position are noted.
  • FanProphet's The Gospel Week 2 QBs (keep an eye open on his site for RBs and WRs later this week)
  • KFFL's Week 2 Fantasy Rankings: RB (is that Shaun Alexander I see ranked at the top?), QB (for once Peyton is not #1), and WR (2 Colts in the top 3 rankings)
  • Ah, Jay Cutler - read Fantasy Sharks Start/Bench List - Week 2 to find out why you should be starting him this week.
  •'s Starters and Slackers - note that you want to look to the left column for Week 2 info.
  • If you want something a little different, try posting your lineup question to My Fantasy Lineup - let others vote on your decision to help guide you to the right choice.
Early birds:
  • The Hazean accurately predicted my Benson demise this past weekend, so how could he be wrong this week? Check out their early Week 2 start/sit suggestions for some advice.
  • FFToolbox's Pickups of the Week - 3 whole pages of waiver suggestions. I like that.
  • FantasyFootballGoat is in my head. He has two of my waiver wire pick-ups, Marcus Pollard and Antwaan Randle El, on his Fantasy Football Waiver Wire and Sleepers Watch Week 1 article. Note that the Goat also links to the Bruno Boys Waiver Wire article and adds that he'll be updating his own waiver picks to reflect any changes from the MNF games. I'm probably a little biased but I have to say I like the diversity in the Goat's picks - if you read waiver wire advice columns then you're probably sick of reading about Derrick Ward and Michael Pittman, so job well done, Goat.
  • FFToday's 20/20 Hindsight - Week 1...check out the section at the bottom called Nagging Feelings - Week 2 for some thoughts about potential pickups and developments from Week 1 performances.
  • FootballDocs' Pick-up/Drop Advice - lots of the usual suspects on there but it's nice to have a long list like this with plenty of food for thought.
  • CBS Sports' Playing The Waiver Wire: Remember This Titan?
And on a totally different note, enjoy this amusing interview with Maurice Jones-Drew from Yahoo Sports.

Thanks ff librarian,

I am glad someone picked up on my diverse take. I was getting a flak for not pointing out the obvious.

Thanks FF Librarian,

As always I really appreciate you mentioning me in your blog. You obviously have a popular site considering I do receive plenty attention by you mentioning me.

Thanks again,

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

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
