Week 9's Waiver Thoughts

Good morning Football Fans. Though I suppose it's already nearing the afternoon for those of you on the eastern side of the nation. So let's not waste time talking about how my loss to my husband this week was solidified during last night's Broncos-Packers game. Let's get right to who you should pick up off the waiver wire this on for expert opinions:
  • FF Geek Blog's Waiver Wire Pickups, Keeper Sleepers, and Spot Starts: Week 9 has just what you're looking for, especially if you want to read up on all NFL players named Chris Henry.
  • I admit, I was fooled by Kenton Keith's time sharing in previous weeks.'s Risers and Fallers: Addai, Davis headline risers rubs that in a bit. But they don't have Marques Colston and his 3 TDs anywhere on their list of risers - an oversight? Or do they think this past week was an aberration for Colston?
  • Currently, Rotoworld appears to have a fantasy basketball article in place of their fantasy football waiver wired article. So until that gets fixed, try their Football Daily Dose for thoughts on which of your players' poor performances are worth worrying about.
  • FFToolbox's Week 9: Pickups of the Week offers several pages of suggestions of players that might be free agents in your league.
  • The FF Goat updated his Waiver Wire and Sleepers Watch Week 9 article after last night's stunner (tough times here in Denver...) to include Ryan Grant, GB's out-of-nowhere running back.
  • The Sports Outlaw's Waiver Wire Moves - Week 9 includes IDPs as well as the usual RB, QB, WR, TE suspects.
  • Who is the dump of the week? Read Fanball's Inaction Jackson for this week's big drop. Or try Cooped Up Henry for their pickup of the week.
  • Try NFL Freaks' Hot Waiver Wire Picks - Week 9 to find out why JaMarcus Russell should be on your radar.
  • Pigskin Addiction has a couple of waiver suggestions in Waiver Wire Work that I didn't find anywhere else - nice work, guys.
  • Want your waiver suggestions in video format? No problem, Fox Sports has you covered with their Waiver wire pickups video.
I'll be back tomorrow with even more waiver wire links and other fantasy news that might be help as you get your Week 9 lineups set.

My thoughts:

QB: Kellen Clemens - he's the starter in New York now, worth a shot for those with crappy options. I'd also keep an eye out for JaMarcus Russell.

RB: Chris Henry (TEN) and Ryan Grant (GB). Grant looks like he has a serious chance of taking the starting job in Green Bay, the way that Wynn keeps getting injured.

WR: Ted Ginn (MIA) and Chris Henry (CIN). Ginn looks explosive and Henry is needed badly in Cincy. The latter is coming back after week 9, apparently.

TE: Tony Scheffler (DEN) - he's scored two weeks in a row and doing a better job right now than guys like Owen Daniels (ugh, bad situation in HOU right now).

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
