Football for a Thursday

Just a note to my loyal readers, there will be some sparse posting for the next few days. I'm heading up to Aspen tonight to tackle some serious powder for the weekend followed by two days at the Fantasy Sports Trade Association annual conference - yes, I'm living a charmed life. I may have more time and access to my blog than I think, but for now brace yourselves for a quiet week with the promise that there will be many more posts soon to follow.

So until then, why don't you read up on some of these excellent football links?
  • The Pro Football Reference Blog's There is no greatest team ever has some interesting thoughts on what makes a team one of the greatest of all times - and how the 2007 Patriots fit in to that concept.
  • Wondering where some of the free agents might find themselves for the 2008 season? Football Jabber's Fantasy Free Agent Forecast has taken a stab at the fantasy implications of some potential free agent moves. And if you want even more free agency talk, check out Fanball's Free Agency Preview. OR try Football Outsiders' free agency review starting with the NFC South.
  • If you'd like to keep up on the team transactions within the NFL, take a look at ProFootballWeekly's Summary of NFL Transactions.
  • Check out the Bruno Boys' Top 7 Bounce Back Players of 2007 for a list of guys like Jamal Lewis and Clinton Portis who rose above expectations this past season.
Have a great weekend and I'll be back next 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. 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
