So yeah, it is kind of quiet in football land...

Based on feedback from a handful of you, it seems that I might not have been congratulatory enough to the GMen for their Super Bowl victory. Giants fans, and anyone else who may have noted my lack of enthusiasm, my apologies! The Giants truly outplayed the Patriots on Sunday and kudos to the entire Giants team, coaches, staff, etc for a marvelous end to the 2007 season. Hmm, I sort of feel like my grandmother when I use the word marvelous. But "great" just doesn't cover it.

Moving on. Well only kind of. Sports Data Hub's Giant Potential in 2008 has a great question - how will the Super Bowl performances by Giants players affect their fantasy draft position in 2008? Personally, I still am on the fence about Eli as a QB1 - I just can't erase the regular season from my memory. I think Plax's injury also gives me continued concern about his ability to be a #1 WR all season long. There is no doubt in my mind that he is an elite WR - just can he stay healthy enough to draft him as a WR1 in fantasy? Clearly the Giants D has shown what an incredible unit they are and they might have benefited the most from their Super Bowl and playoffs play in general - I would be excited to have them on my fantasy team next year.

And what about the Patriots? Again, this is just my opinion but I think it's Maroney and Welker who may see the biggest boost in fantasy draft position from their playoffs performances. Maroney's only adequate Super Bowl performance may force him to fall a little in fantasy drafts and I'm okay with that - I'll be there to scoop him up. Love the guy.

For some other thoughts on this same topic, check out's What's next for these Super Bowl participants?

Check out CBS Sports' Rumor Mill for the latest on football happenings. Will the Redskins snag Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo as their head coach? And Chad Johnson replaces Randy Moss in the Pro Bowl after Moss suffered an injury in the Super Bowl. Uh really? What injury did Moss suffer? Most likely the dude just doesn't want to play in the Pro Bowl and I can't really blame him. This is Chad Johnson's fifth straight Pro Bowl appearance.

For info on all things GIANTS, come check out my site:

As for what to look for in 2008, watch the developments in Jacobs and Ward... if Jacobs gets hurt and something like Ward not getting re-signed occurs, the parting of the Red Sea could make for Ahmad Bradshaw becoming the steal of RBs. I would stay away from him if both (Ward and Jacobs) are on the roster and healthy. But if not, AB has the talent to dominate. I will put it to you another way, if ultimatenyg was the new coach of the Giants AB would be getting 20-25 touches a game REGARDLESS of whether Jacobs and/or Ward were on my team, and AB would be racking up 1500 yards on the ground and 500 receiving. He is the real deal. Steve Smith is also, problem is that they all have to share the ball on this offense.

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

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.

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
