Fantasy Favre

Brett Favre. I had at least four friends contact me this morning to make sure I had heard the news of Favre’s retirement. It would be hard to miss that news…but to be honest, I wasn’t convinced it was real at first. I mean this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Favre was retiring – and after all the recent talk about the Packers’s website having a retirement article on Favre up and then disappearing…I thought this might be the next series of faux Favre retirement announcements. But after reading more and more articles it is clear that Favre is ending calling it quits. So congrats to an excellent player...and since this is a fantasy football blog, let's celebrate Favre's career by taking a look at his fantasy stats.

Everyone has slightly different scoring, but I threw together a spreadsheet on Favre's stats over his years with the Packers and tallied up his fantasy points (I've had mixed success with sharing Google Spreadsheets - use the contact me button if you want the Excel version). I did some fairly standard things - 4 points per Pa TD, 6 points per Ru TD, 2 points per 2 PT conversions, 1 point per 20 Pa yards, 1 point per 10 Ru yards. Took off 2 points for interceptions and lost fumbles. And below you'll see the option of looking at total season fantasy points (FP) with or without completions added in - the far right column has 0.2 points per completion.

However you slice it, 1995 was Favre's most impressive fantasy season; not surprisingly, the mid-1990s were a fairly solid time for Favre both from a fantasy football and reality football standpoint. Cheers to Favre and here's to Aaron Rodgers as the next hot commodity on the fantasy QB scene!

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
