Post-Memorial Day Football Recap

Three-day weekends are like a blessing and a curse all wrapped up in one - yeah it was awesome to relax and have an extra day of fun, but it's a reminder to me that I'd love to have a three-day weekend every weekend. That's always a bit of a bummer. But my weekend included scoring some amazing seats at a Rockies v Mets game on Friday night (thanks again Bart!), cruising around the Boulder Creek Festival, getting some good runs in, and baking a successful angel food cake at high altitude (harder than it sounds, thank you). It also, sadly, included the canceling of the extra sports tier in our cable package...and thus, no more NFL Network for us. I think we've changed our subscription to the sports tier about 4 or 5 times over the past year depending on how much we're using it (uh, not much at all right now) and I'm sure, come fall, I'll be re-upping it again...

So onto football:
  • Rotoworld welcomes summer with their first Mock Draft writeup of the season in Never too early for a Mock.
  • How many RBs can my Broncos possibly load up on? With Henry nursing an injured hamstring, it's welcome to Broncos Country, Michael Pittman.
  • The guys over at FF Geek Blog turned me onto this article - 2008 Offensive Line Rankings and Analysis with the o-lines labeled anywhere from very good to poor. I'm big on taking a good long look at o-lines and am trying to gather as many o-line rankings or commentary as I can find - if you've got one, send it my way!
  • More from Rotoworld - Gregg Rosenthal posts his top 5 fantasy defenses. I actually think there are quite a few defenses that I would be happy drafting this year.
  • Looking for a bye week grid to help in your draft preparations? Yeah, a little early for me, too, but I love that Pigskin Addiction is already all over this with their 2008 Bye Week Grid - and who knows, perhaps someone out there is doing some crazy June draft or something equally amusing.
Enjoy the short work week!

Alright, so you have to let me know when it is that you do your fantasy football draft.

Also, I am considering doing "The Battle of the Sports Bloggers", which will be a fantasy football league for some of my favorite blogs. Whaddaya say?

Love the bye week grid - last year I didn't pay enough attention to that I got hosed on two different weeks. Thanks for the link!

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
