Speculations for the offseason

Greetings and happy Friday. I've been a little bit quiet on the blog this week - after attending the Fantasy Sports Trade Association conference for two days earlier this week, I had a lot of catching up to do with my real world librarian job. And I've been working on an article that should be up on Sports Grumblings sometime soon, so it has been a bit of a busy week. But without further ado, here are some football links for the day:
  • I don't know about the rest of you, but when I read things like FFXtreme's breaking news that DeShaun Foster will likely be traded or released, I get a little thrill. I mean there's a backfield situation that has been more of a snoozefest than anything lately and I can't wait to see what's going to pan out. It's like fresh RB meat in a way. Will the Panthers try to get their hands on someone like Michael Turner perhaps? Or does this just skyrocket DeAngelo Williams' value? I love the speculation during the offseason. Read ESPN's McNabb, Shockey, Harrison among stars in limbo for more thoughts on who might get traded in the next few months.
  • Some Colts news - my husband isn't going to be happy to hear this - but it sounds like three big Colts names aren't likely to be ready to go by training camp. Harrison, Sanders and Freeney have all had surgery - what does this mean for the Colts 2008 season and is anyone out there actually excited about drafting Marvin Harrison now? As if the 2007 season wasn't enough of a deterrent...
  • NFL Stats' Belichick's Belichick led me to this great article about the Patriots' football scholar in residence, Ernie Adams. It's a little bit of a longer read, but it is excellent - and who doesn't have a few spare minutes on a Friday afternoon?
  • Check out SI's The calm before the storm for a mock NFL Draft.
All for now - I'll try to be online this afternoon if anyone has a strong desire to talk pre-Combine with me. Unlikely, I know. Have a good one!

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
