Offseason Moves

Greetings fantasy football fans. We're getting pretty close to March Madness time so I'm impressed that so many of you are here, focusing on football instead. This makes perfect sense since football is of course the best possible sport out there...and there are still several free-agency updates coming in from around the NFL, so read on:
  • Warrick Dunn signs with TB. As FF Xtreme notes, "this is actually great news for Earnest Graham owners, as this signing makes it far less likely that the Bucs attack the running back position in this year's 2008 NFL Draft."
  • Cold, Hard Football Facts has linked up to all the "year in review" summaries released by each NFL team - there are some solid factoids in here, such as:
    • Jay Cutler’s 63.6 completion percentage was the third highest in franchise history
    • The Titans improved from 32nd in total defense in 2006 (369.7 YPG) to 5th in total defense in 2007 (291.6 YPG)
    • The Jaguars set franchise records for points (411, 25.7 PPG), TDs (50), TD passes (28) and yards per play (5.6).
  • Trent Green goes back to the Rams. As someone who has owned Marc Bulger at really unfortunate times and is intimately aware of his injury-proneness, knowing who his back-up will be in 2008 is essential. Though after learning that it will be Trent Green, I'm left with great uncertainty. Trent needs to retire. Is this really a good move for the Rams? Unclear.
  • As I've noted in an earlier post, I have an oddly high interest in Jesse Chatman's future whereabouts. Check out the Fifth Down's guest blogger for the week's thoughts on what it means for the Jets now that they've signed Chatman.

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
