AP and other news from Week 9

I have a sad confession to make. I have Adrian Peterson in one league and yet did NOT win in that league. Stunning, right? By our scoring standards, he gave me 37.5 points but the rest of my team had a decidedly mediocre week - and my opponent had Hasselbeck, T.O., Randy Moss, and Tony Gonzalez, all of whom had pretty stellar weeks. So while AP hopefully led many of you to a sweet, sweet victory, I am going to have to whip the rest of my team into shape.

Onto other news...were you all wondering why Priest Holmes was suddenly seeing a handful of carries? So was I. Apparently Larry Johnson injured his ankle and will be out for at least one week. And how about Jamal Lewis with 4 TDs? Yeah, I have Derek Anderson in one league and was getting more and more irate each time Jamal ran in a TD, particularly since the guy I was playing had Jamal on his team. [Note: AP broke Jamal Lewis' record of 295 rushing yards from 2003.] And Jay Cutler, Chad Johnson, Jerious Norwood, Ryan Grant, and Ahman Green (surprise, surprise) all injured? It's rough out there. Check out KFFL's Hot Off the Wire for injury updates.

So with those injuries in mind, let's take a look at some early waiver wire thoughts for week 10 of the NFL season:

You're not alone, I had Adrian Peterson as well in a league and got destroyed, as my opponent had Drew Brees, Detroit DEF, Clinton Portis and Jason Witten...what a waste!

i've been poking around your blog for a minute. i really like it. i was on the receiving end of a team featuring peterson. let's just say this has been my worst week. i also picked up scheffler too, but he didn't do anything for me. oh well...

Very nice blog, I have been checking this out for 2 weeks now, very impressed. The person in my league with AP lost too. Maybe it is bad luck to have someone so good.

What the hell should I do with Mark Bulger?
Thanks, aquababie. I'll be interested in Scheffler's chemistry with Ramsey if Cutler doesn't start this week. I still think he's worth a start but keep an eye on any news/reports out of Denver.

Wayne, your question about Bulger is a great one. Yet another offensive lineman went down for the Rams in week 8 and I have serious qualms about Bulger with such a decimated line. This week they do play the Saints though who gave up 350 yards to Quinn Gray last weekend, so there's hope. But they also intercepted Gray 3 times. I can see that exact same thing happening to Bulger this week, which relatively speaking, could be a decent outcome. So ultimately, I think it depends on who you have as your backup QB. I'd certainly hang onto Bulger but would be careful about starting him.

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
