2008 Week 1 projections are already up...

Fantasy Football Xtreme brings us a beautiful thing: Week 1 projections for the 2008 season. These guys aren't messing around - it may only be mid-May but there are actually projections up for the first week. And thank you FFXtreme for the Tony Scheffler love I see - nicely done. Maybe I should start to tone down my lovefest for Scheff so that none of my competitors know my weaknesses come draft day.

Read on for other excellent football insights for the week...
  • If you can't get down with Week 1 projections quite yet, how about season-long projections? FFXtreme has those, too: QB, RB, WR, TE.
  • Those of you in IDP (individual defensive player) leagues might be interested in reading up on Rotoworld's IDP Breakouts series - check out the Defensive Backs and Linebackers info with Defensive Linemen still to come later this week. Remember these are breakout players - those who might make big leaps in performance for 2008.
  • Pigskin Addiction has the first installment of their 2008 Dynasty Cheatsheet up for your perusal - I have to say, I'm just not that big on Antonio Gates being the #1 TE for dynasty leagues...maybe even for regular leagues. I'm just down on Gates, I guess. Someone feel free to convince me otherwise.
  • The Hazean led me to this post on RotoNation and I do have to agree that fantasy football creep is a little bit like going to the grocery store around Halloween and hearing Christmas music playing. It just seems a bit early for holiday tunes in October - and it seems a bit early for fantasy analysis in May. Yeah, I'm actually confessing that I think in-depth analysis of fantasy football so early in the season is a bit much. That won't stop me from reading all these articles, but my serious researching and digesting of info probably won't happen for another month.
For those who have asked, I did indeed get a job offer for the job that I interviewed for last week. It means a little bit of change but I'll still be in the same library cranking out the same fantasy links for you this fall - albeit it with a little more stress, sass or edge to my tone but hey, that should keep everyone entertained.

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
