Contest reminder and draft reviews

Greetings fantasy fans. My mind is hanging on by a thin thread this week as can be evidenced by a few mistakes I've made - first, the FFXtreme free subscription contest entries need to be in today by 6:30 eastern, not 4:30 eastern (I automatically converted to my mountain time zone I guess). Remember to e-mail your guess for the WR with the most yards (and his yardage) to me today in order to win a free year-long subscription to FFXtreme. Good stuff, or as last week's winner Ghosty would say, big smiles.

I also somehow failed to see that signing up for the FFLibrarian's Challenge league, part of the $100K Fantasy Challenge, required a group number - I've corrected yesterday's post but for those who want to sign up, the group number is 1907 and the password is librarian.

A few links for the day:
  • My Bruno Boys' A Librarian's Touch column is up - FFL Draft Day Trends. I'm done with 4 of my drafts so I posted some brief thoughts on trends that I've seen so far.
  • Okay, this next link is one of the coolest things I've seen in awhile - the FFXtreme's freely available Injury Information Center. Soon they'll have info up about injured players but click on a body part and you get information about associated injuries, healing time and players who have suffered those injuries. Pretty rad I must say - makes you want to win that FFXtreme subscription so you can get into their paid content, too, doesn't it?

I'm venturing into the Denver burbs tonight to have dinner with a friend who has been in town covering the DNC; this will be my first DNC interaction since Boulder is really pretty far out from Denver and the convention chaos hasn't spread this far. Hopefully I won't get trapped in a parking lot of a highway with all the road closures in the area. Then I'd see very little of tonight's football games and that's just not cool. So enjoy the preseason games tonight - and the start of college football! Speaking of college football, my Northwestern Wildcats will be on ESPN2 for their game against Syracuse on Saturday morning. I. can't. wait.

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
