Monday Review

Oh what a big numbers weekend for one league I gleefully watched my stats skyrocket as Adrian Peterson kept running up the TDs and yardage (at this point I'd like to point out that I got AP in the 8th round of this draft. Yes, seriously!). Sadly some of my other players in that league put up rather unremarkable numbers (Sammy Morris, how's the chest? And Vincent Jackson, what's up buddy?) so I'm only up by 5 points with my opponent still to play Plaxico tonight. If I win, I'm numero uno in that league. So depending on that matchup's outcome, I'll either go 2-2 or 3-1 this weekend. Decent, but there's always room for improvement.

So let's get to a quick review of the weekend and perhaps some early waiver thoughts:
  • Wondering who put up massive numbers this week? Which RBs had season-high yardage? Check out the Fantasy Football Geek Blog's Holy TOUCHDOWNS, Batman!
  • Want a quick review of the injuries from this weekend and how that might affect your team? Give KFFL's Post-Game Injury Report: Week 6 a look, but note that almost all players have a "status unknown" next to their name - do more research before you make lineup changes for any of them.
  • And of course the free agent/waiver wire advice begins. Try FootballDocs' Week 7 Pick-up/Drop to read up on New Orleans' WRs Lance Moore and David Patten. Or read Fantasy Football Xtreme's Week 7: Players on the Rise/Decline or Bruno Boys' Work the Wire, the Waiver Wire - Week 7 for more free agent tips.
On a different note, my Northwestern Wildcats pulled out yet another OT win this weekend over Minnesota - this one went to 2 OTs and I believe Northwestern's OT record is now 13-3. How impressive is that?

And how about the Rockies? If you lack any sort of rooting interest here, you've gotta back the perpetual underdog (which, incidentally, reminds me of how much I'm enjoying the song The Underdog by Spoon) and realize that this winning streak has been YEARS in the making. Colorado is going crazy with Rocktober love.

Looks like Plaxico was able to defeat your team...too bad. At this point, counting on Plaxico to score less than 5 points is like counting on Tom Brady to throw less than 2 TD's. Eli is loving him this season.

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
