Updated Stats & Waiver Wire News

In looking for some information on current cheat sheets for a late drafter, I came across two sites that I thought were particularly interesting. But then again I really like the numbers side of fantasy football, so if you're more of a commentary person and not a stats person, maybe scroll down a bit to my links on waiver wire pickups for Week 4.
  • SI's League Leaders thus far by position - can be divided up by NFC vs AFC. Who would've thought that LaMont Jordan and Jamal Lewis would be the #2 and #3 RBs? I know it's early yet, but still...
  • AccuScore - when a human brain just isn't enough, turn to the computers of AccuScore. They've got forecasted player rankings that you can manipulate to view a specific week's projections or the season-long forecast. Their uber-high ranking of the Green Bay D/ST is making me rethink my San Diego D/ST draft choice...
Last night I was on the bus home from work with my husband when he casually mentioned something about Steven Jackson being out for an injury. I realized it had been hours since I'd last checked any NFL news or injury reports and this was news to me. I suggested that perhaps he had read about Darrell Jackson, not Steven Jackson, but he was fairly certain it was the Rams RB. I eyed his laptop wondering if I could power it up and get a wireless signal cruising through the streets of Boulder (if you know Boulder, you know this is actually highly probable) to claim Brian Leonard off the wire...but decided to chance it until we got home. In one league, I did get him, in another he was taken during the draft, and in a 3rd league someone else got to him first. In the 4th league, I have to wait until waivers go through on Wednesday morning. But I started wondering if 1) I'm completely insane, as demonstrated by my Brian Leonard laser-like focus and 2) if the St. Louis o-line is strong enough to even warrant a Leonard pick-up. So we shall see what happens. In the meantime, some waiver advice from the pros:
  • The Sports Outlaw's Weekly Waiver Wire Week 4 - includes IDPs as well as the usual suspects.
  • FFToolbox's Week 4: Pickups of the Week - the call for Griese is back on this week, my friends.
  • Fanball's Christian Peterson's blog - read Week 3 Ramblings to be caught up on the fantasy happenings of Week 3. I'm amused by this guy and his sense of humor.
More waiver wire and start and sit suggestions to come later this week!

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
