Holiday Weekend Recovery

I'm recovering from a very relaxing long weekend by easing my way into the work day - hope you all enjoyed some time off as well. I have to say, I did not see a single firework but I watched a hell of a lot of Olympic trials for track & field. My husband ran in college and we are therefore a dedicated track & field household - but truly, who doesn't love seeing runners move at unbelievable speeds? I must admit it's really just the track events that I dig. Sorry long and high jumpers, but the field events just don't hold my interest nearly as much as the track stuff. Anyway, back to football. I'll try to stay focused on football throughout this Olympic season but apparently I'm easily distracted.

So for the latest on all things football, read on...
  • He'll retire, he'll retire not, he'll retire, he'll retire not...who's to say what will happen with Favre but for the latest on why we might know within the next 10 days, check out SI's Nightmare in Green Bay: The saga of Brett Favre is far from over.
  • The Bruno Boys' draft webazine will be out and freely available within the next few days. Yours truly has a quick fantasy-focused o-line article in there, so I'm sure to pimp the webazine a bit more when it becomes available.
  • This Just In... (TJI for short) is back and better than ever. Check out the new site and take a look at some of those new features to come this year including Drafting With Intelligence and The Bust Report.
  • And speaking of sites that are kicking it into gear for the 2008 season, Football Outsiders (seriously, you should pay attention to this site if you want to oh, say, win your league this year) is getting ready to provide all the 2008 info you'll need, including their KUBIAK projections.
  • Hadn't noticed this before - looks like CBS is on the mock draft bandwagon. If you want to mock it up sometime, give their system a whirl. I haven't tried it yet so I don't know how easy it is to use, but I say give it a try if you have a slow day on your hands...
  • And finally, for those IDP-leaguers out there, SportingNews has an IDP overview: Being patient will pay off article for you to read as your prep for you draft.

I'm working with, a social networking site for sports.

Members can post photos, videos, share stats and schedules, and a whole lot more with others throughout the community. Takkle is a place where students, athletes, coaches, and fans can share their passion for sports.

I feel that your site is very useful. I would love to know if you could link to our social networking resource.

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
