More RBBC material - and visitor 100,000!

In my recent column with the Bruno Boys, I commented on the lack of articles that address some of the more difficult RBBC (running back by committee) situations. There are a few gems out there, though, and apparently more are cropping up every day. Take a look at a few:
  • The Huddle's The 2008 Ultimate RBBC Review - I realize this article is only partially free for non-Huddle members. But I'm a non-Huddle member who can only read the first 4 or so reviews, and I still think it's worth your time. Now if you are a Huddle member, you're probably in for a treat. And by the way, I apparently can't stop reading and linking to John Tuvey's articles; he's got quite the fan club (um, why can't my last name be turned into something as hipster as his? tuvey=2v. I mean, really - that's fantastic. It's the small things in life...). If you haven't read his o-line analysis that I linked to in this blog post yet, go check them out (again, only partially available to non-Huddle members now).
  • CBS Sportsline's Draft Prep: Backs more plentiful than ever - includes a nice tiering of backs that I agree with for the most part. I think I would merge their Tier 4 and 5 backs together though since most of those guys hold approximately the same value in my book. I also think Reggie Bush is more of a Tier 3 guy, especially in PPR leagues.
  • FFToolbox's Running Back by Committee (RBBC) Update - makes a great point about a now nearly ignored Jerious Norwood; though I disagree that Adrian Peterson of Chitown will really have much of an impact at all (though my husband, who likes to refer to him as The Real Adrian Peterson, is likely disagreeing with that latter statement as he reads it).
So I'm nearing my 100,000th visitor of all time. FFLibrarian has been around since September 2006 and I've had 99,564 visitors as of this posting. I feel like I should have some sort of FFL gift for the 100,000th visitor as my way of saying thanks to you all for stopping by, but what would that gift be?? An awesome FFL t-shirt? Personally I've met my quotient of random t-shirts but maybe you all haven't? Perhaps an FFL mug so you can caffeinate and think about FF simultaneously? Do I need to start making FFL schwag here? I welcome all suggestions for the 100,000th visitor prize...and if you guys are down with this, I think I should hit visitor #100,000 sometime tomorrow and can only actually recognize visitor #100,000 by your IP address. So who knows if this would actually work, but if you guys like this idea, let me know in the comments. Stupid idea? Tell me that, too.

FFL, wanted to tell you that the Fantasy Football WHIP has been re-formulated:

(PF*2+PA*2)*(W^0.25) / Games Played.

Thanks in part Phil at Ultimate Football Strategy.

I love the idea of FFL schwag.

The FFToolbox article is from June 18, prior to Kevin Jones being signed. Talk about old info!
Good point on the data, Anon. Thanks for mentioning that though much of the info in that article should still be helpful. Perhaps FFToolbox is already working on a new version...
Thanks for the new WHIP formula Hy-Five. In all your spare time (no one seems to have a whole lot of that...) if you ever write up a bunch of detail on it, I'd love to hear more/see the results.

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
