Looking Back, Looking Ahead and the New York Times

I just read a quality post about kickers in 2007 from NFL Stats - 2007 FG Kicker Rankings. I know, I know, nobody in fantasy football land really has any love or great interest in the kicker, do they? As someone who is personally a great fan of both Jason Elam and CU-alum Mason Crosby, I probably have a distorted love for kickers. Or perhaps it's because it's the one position in football that I can actually envision myself doing - keeping in mind my gender and stature, you can imagine that I don't exactly sit around dreaming about how I'd sack the QB. And suiting up on the o-line? Not a chance. But booting the heck out of a ball through the uprights? Oh yeah. Plus I think there's a lot of mystery surrounding how to rank and or draft a kicker for fantasy leagues. Don't worry, I'm not trying to argue that it's the most interesting or important position to contemplate in the offseason, but an enjoyable read nonetheless.

I think Smitty from FFXtreme might be in my brain - seriously, I was just thinking about which players were overvalued and undervalued for the 2008 season and BAM - Smitty writes an article about it. So check out his Overvalued and undervalued players heading into 2008. Though I do disagree with you on Maroney. I am a big fan of Maroney and will be that player that drafts him in the 2nd round without any hesitations.

In other news, look for me next week as the guest blogger on the New York Times' pro football blog, the Fifth Down. I will be blogging on their site every day next week and will put up links directly from FFLibrarian to the New York Times entries I do. So enjoy!

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
