Starting the week off right

I'm lacking enthusiasm for being at work today - I remember the good ol' days when I lived in Washington, D.C. and got Presidents' Day off of work since it's a federal holiday. Oh the beauty of federal holidays. So I hope those of you who aren't working today are living it up on my behalf.
But on to football. Yes, stunningly there is football to talk about.
  • Cold, Hard Football Facts' Health = wealth in the NFL does an interesting ranking of teams by most injuries to starters during the 2007 season. Teams are ranked by the total number of games missed by all key players for the season. Who comes out as the most unhealthy team of the season? My poor Denver Broncos. And the most healthy? The Pack.
  • SI's Top 10 RB Prospects from this year's rookie class. Not surprisingly, Run DMC tops the list but I'm personally interested in seeing what happens with Ray Rice. I like the guy a lot despite his supposed wear and tear.
  • FFToolbox has a ridiculous number of Mock NFL Drafts on their site. Here's one that was just updated today, but check out their homepage for links to at least three others.
  • Okay, it's possible that I could spend my entire work day pouring through the material in this link - The Huddle's Fantasy Football NFL Team Reports. The Huddle opens up their prime content during the offseason so that we can all get hooked on their high quality content and want to pay for it come August...but go ahead and delve in - you won't be sorry, this is good stuff.
All for now, the library world is calling.

Your library should have more than one section (aka football).
I beseech you- fantasy baseball is just as popular and even more challenging.
Can Sara (secret identity) help save the fantasy world with some research on fantasy baseball sites.
Or better yet join a baseball league on CBSsportsline

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
