Colston out and other fantasy updates

Sigh. Marques Colston is undergoing surgery on his thumb that will keep him out of the game for 4-6 weeks. My receiving corps in multiple leagues just took a hit. With few options in one league, I just snagged David Patten; I had a hard time deciding between Patten and Devery Henderson but I think Patten is more of Brees' go-to guy and will hopefully fill in nicely for Colston. This should also increase the value of Bush and Shockey a bit so if you aren't already starting those guys, give it some serious thought.

I cried a little bit when i heard the Colston news =(

I have picked up Patten as well, though a good argument could be made for Henderson. Henderson is hit or miss though, when hes on he is great otherwise you will wonder why you have him on your roster.

Thanks for the plug, I'll be sure to return the favor. I agree with going with Patten over Henderson - Patten is sure to get 4-5 catches, while Henderson is boom or bust - he could catch nothing, or 3 balls for 120 yards.

Best line ever written in a fantasy football article "... the Rams' passing game blew more than Rock Hudson in Greenwich Village."

I had to get rid of Colston in one my leagues and have picked up DeSean Jackson as neither Patten or Henderson were available in my league - we'll see how that goes. Certainly not a fair trade. But Devery is available in my other league, so I'm picking him up and getting rid of the sack-magnet David Garrard (my 3rd QB). Hopefully Drew throws a few Devery's way this weekend.

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.

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
