Mock draft wrap-up and Ledyard, CT fan

If you came to FF Librarian this morning at 8:47 AM eastern time from Ledyard, Connecticut, you are my 100,000th visitor. Congratulations and I will happily (and perhaps slowly) reward you with some sort of FFL shwag if you are interested. If this could be you, send me your IP address and I can confirm if it's correct or not.

So I have just now finished The Hazean's e-mail mock draft that was just 4 rounds long. My first two picks were Randy Moss (1.12) and Reggie Wayne (2.01); with rounds 3 and 4 I wanted to grab some RBs for my team, so based on the following picks from round 3, I went with the following guys...

3rd Round:
  1. Curveballs 4 Jesus: Jamal Lewis
  2. Sean McCall/Football Outsiders: Marques Colston
  3. Football Burrito Tony Romo
  4. Pancake Blocks: Chad Johnson
  5. West Coast Nonsense: T.J. Houshmandzadeh
  6. Bruno Boys: Steve Smith
  7. The Hazean: Brandon Marshall
  8. Football Jabber: Plaxico Burress
  9. Fantasy Football Fools: Edgerrin James
  10. Fantasy Football Geek Blog: Torry Holt
  11. Fantasy Football Goat: Santonio Holmes
  12. Fantasy Football Librarian: Reggie Bush
Round 4:
  1. Fantasy Football Librarian: Ronnie Brown
So my lineup is: Randy, Reggie, Reggie and Ronnie. I sense a name trend. Thoughts? Good decisions or should I have picked other guys with my 3rd and 4th round picks? I know a lot of people are down on Ronnie Brown and I'm certainly not banking on him being an RB1 for me, that's what you get when you draft WR-WR. Would love to hear any thoughts you have.

Now onto the links for the day:
  • The Hazean has some sleeper picks for you in Sleeper watch: Wide receivers; check out the sleeper QBs and RBs, too. I can't agree with the Rudi Johnson pick there (how have I become so virulently anti-Rudi?) and I'm not buying the Delhomme love, but the rest are fairly sound assessments.
  • What to do with Larry Johnson? He's one of those guys that I'm really uncertain about - if he comes to you at the end of the 1st round, would you take him? What about the middle of the 2nd round? Check out FF Starters' thoughts in Larry Johnson: Fantasy Football Sleeper or Bust in 2008?
  • IDP fans, check out FF Xtreme's 2008 IDP Rankings. Not only is there commentary for each player but each player's ADP is also listed. Awesome stuff as always, FFX.
  • While I certainly think it's important to focus draft research on those players that you imagine will be your starters, I also think you need to know more about the guys you draft as backups; you might need them more than you think. So on that note, TJI brings us Value City...Quarterbacks for some backup QBs that you may be able to snag at a very late point in the draft.
  • And for some amusement as the weekend approaches, enjoy a chuckle while you search for yourself in Football Outsiders' Walkthrough: Psychiatric help, 5 cents - what does your draft style say about you?

I think that with the 12th pick in drafts this year, WR-WR might be a good choice. You do lose some value at RB, but the value drop-off after the top WR's is huge and you will miss out on the top 10-15 WR's in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

Unless one of the stud RB's or Brady or Manning fall to you, I would suggest going WR-WR with the 12th and 13th picks.

(Obviously this depends on your league, but this is probably what I would do in my league)

The Ledyard reader was probably checking in from Foxwoods Casino, which makes it doubly cool.

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
