Waivers for Week 8

Week 8 of the NFL season is quickly approaching. There were a surprising number of injuries and injury scares this while Ronnie Brown owners are envisioning an ugly 2nd half of the season, and my fellow Frank Gore owners are crossing their fingers that his ankle sprain is minor, Steven Jackson owners are getting psyched for his potential return to the field this week. For those of you dealing with injury mishaps (or suffering from Week 8 byes), let's take a look at some of the waiver wire suggestions that are already up:
  • The FF Goat's Fantasy Football Waiver Wire and Sleepers Watch Week 8 - I basically think Tony Scheffler is the TE of the future and drafted him this year only to have to drop him a few weeks ago to cover injuries, etc. But the Goat sees Scheff as a potential bye week replacement against Green Bay if you need him this week...I couldn't agree more.
  • NFL's Risers & Fallers: Barber, White headline risers has your upgrades and downgrades and how that might affect your fantasy lineups.
  • The FF Geek Blog has become one of my favorite resources, I must say. They have not just one, but two articles of interest for free agent/waiver purposes. First, Waiver Wire Pickups, Keeper Sleepers, and Spot Starts: Week 8 has more Scheffler love and a reminder that Deion Branch is coming back from injury likely after their bye week this week. Also check out Cut Your Losses: Players to Drop, Week 8 if you're wondering whether or not Julius Jones deserves a bench-warming spot on your team.
  • Rotoworld's Waiver Wired, Dol-finished: Losing Ronnie has lots of nice, deep pickups for RB and WR as well as the more obvious free agents you're going to want to get this week.
  • FFToolbox's Week 8: Pickups of the Week - I picked up Garcia in two leagues to fill in for bye weeks and a Vince Young situation and he performed beautifully...FFToolbox considers that a trend that will continue.
Finally, I am trying again for Rockies World Series tickets after system/ticketing malfunctions yesterday - ticket go-time is at noon mountain time...wish me luck.

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
