And training camp rolls on...

As training camp continues across the NFL, I can't encourage you all enough to stay on top of training camp news. I'll probably beat this issue to a pulp over the next few weeks, but there's nothing more enlightening for a draft than news eking out from camp. So hey, feel free to check back here often or try some of the usual suspects like KFFL, Rotoworld, FF Xtreme, ESPN - they all will have the latest and greatest camp news up asap.

In other camp news, I'm on the hunt for a website that keeps a list of all the training camp blogs/sites out there. Anyone have suggestions? In the meantime, keep yourselves entertained with Rotoworld's Nine stories to know from camp. I'll be honest, I'm still not 100% sold on Marvin Harrison being back to his old self but I'm willing to be convinced. If someone wanted to oh I don't know, fly me out to the Colts' training camp to see for myself, I'd be okay with that.

But onto the links for the day:
  • Want free football stuff? Look no further than Football Jabber. Get your thoughts up on the Jabber forums and you will be entered to win a t-shirt from your favorite NFL team. This leads me to the subject of my 100,000th visitor prize - turns out that while a small number of you could have been that visitor, no one has verified the correct IP address so far...but I'm still mulling over this idea of FFL shwag. At the very least, I will be doing another FFLibrarian Challenge during the postseason this year and will happily reward the winner with a lovely FFL prize. But if you can't wait to win stuff until then, I suggest you check out Football Jabber stat.
  • The FootballDocs are making me triple guess my decision to draft Ronnie Brown in a mock league in The Running Back Two Year Major Injury Rule.
  • Does Ryan Grant's contract negotiations and holdout make him a little less valuable? I grabbed Brandon Jackson in the 14th round of a mock yesterday as a precautionary move; I don't think there will ultimately be any problems with Grant but having Jackson certainly doesn't hurt...unless it's Wynn that we should all be using as insurance...
  • Need some advice on drafting strategies? Look no further than Pro Football Weekly's Fantasy rankings are fine, but you must figure out where position drop-offs occur. And while we're talking about PFW, take a look at their article The Bush bounce. As a Reggie Bush believer, I enjoyed reading this article to confirm my suspicions that Bush will be just fine as an RB2 this year.
  • Looking for some breakout wide receivers? Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy (one of my new favorite sites this season so far) takes a look at 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th year receivers in Breakout Wide Receivers who might just end up with big seasons in 2008. My above-stated hesitation over Marvin Harrison leads to a direct support of Anthony Gonzalez (yes, despite his OSU pedigree), so I'm pleased to see Gonzalez listed here.
Now unless something goes horribly awry, my column for Bruno Boys' A Librarian's Touch this week will be about IDPs, so stay tuned all you IDP fans - it should be up later today or tomorrow.

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
