Bronco Bailey Brothers

Couldn't help the alliteration of the Bailey brothers news - Boss Bailey has signed with the Broncos, and yes, he is indeed Champ Bailey's little brother. But more importantly I'd like to note that the brothers are named Champ and Boss. I mean come on, those are fantastic names! What foresight their parents seemed to have had. Why weren't my parents more creative in naming me? I could've been Boss rather than Sara. I mean, family and friends would have legitimately been required to call me Boss. That could have taken me places.

In other football news...
  • One of my favorite bloggers has updated the look of his page - stop by Fantasy Football Goat to see the new design he has going on. Okay, so that's not technically football news but if you haven't already noticed, fantasy football news is hard to come by these days.
  • Okay, I've totally misled you. This isn't football news either. Fantasy baseball news instead. I don't play fantasy baseball but my husband is in two leagues that are drafting online at the exact same time. He's requested my assistance to merely be a warm body watching over whichever draft he isn't on the clock for...but I can't help but feel like I need to have some basic knowledge of the best players in case there's total draft chaos (oh you know it happens...) and I have to draft somebody for him. I don't envision myself going over to the dark side (a.k.a. fantasy baseball) since I really don't dig the sport that much, but I'd like to acknowledge this could be the beginning of the end for me. My life from here on out could be just be defined by the spaces of time occupied by one fantasy sport after another. To inform myself of all things fantasy baseball, I plan on reading Fantasy Insider Online's MLB section.
  • Finally some football news. Check out The Huddle's For Every X article - get some greater insight on just how effective players were last season when they got their hands on the ball. Interesting stuff and I sure love the free and open access to The Huddle's materials during the off-season.
Have a great weekend!

Boss and Champ are pretty cool names, but unfortunately for them, the brothers actually got named Rodney (Boss) and Roland (Champ) by their parents.

I guess they just got creative to rename themselves Boss and Champ before the NFL.
Thanks, Jacob! That is exactly the info I appreciate knowing. Clearly I need to work on my Bailey bros knowledge...

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
