Contest for a Monday night and waiver advice

Happy MNF double header. To celebrate such a season rarity, we'll be doing another contest here at FFLibrarian. A few weeks ago I gave away a few year-long subscriptions to Fantasy Football Xtreme and we're doing another one tonight. Since Adrian Peterson is playing tonight and the Denver vs. Oakland showdown is sure to be a battle on the ground, I thought I'd put out a call for the running back with the highest number of yards on the ground. So e-mail me the RB (and anticipated his rushing yards) that you think will be numero uno tonight by 7:00 pm eastern today (Monday) and the winner will be a lucky recipient of a FFXtreme subscription. You only have a few hours so submit your guess now!

I think I'm going to make this contest a regular feature for the next several weeks to thank you all for stopping by. Every week I'll ask for a position and yardage and you could win either a subscription to FFXtreme or to Fantasy Football Starters' Power Player Package.

In other news, as I mentioned yesterday the local Fox station ran a story on me last night and for those who don't live in the Denver area, here's the video. I think my 15 minutes of fame might be coming to an end but it was fun while it lasted! And now maybe I can finally get over my cold...

But onto the important stuff!

  • When you see Brady, LT, Marion Barber and Joseph Addai all listed under Injury Notes for Week 1, you know it's going to be a crazy season. For thoughts on Brady's season-ending injury, check out Gregg Rosenthal's A Season Changed. And has your other post-game injury news.
  • The FootballDocs are one of the most dependable sites I know - you can count on them churn out their waiver wire advice early every Monday morning no matter what. So read on for their Week 2 Pick-up/Drop Advice, which includes Anthony Fasano (did I call that one or what? I guess it's a little early in the season to be making claims...) and Dante Rosario (what an amazing catch to end yesterday's game!).
  • FFXtreme has advice on which players are on the rise and decline in Fantasy Football Stock Market - Week 2.
  • ProFootballWeekly's Fantasy Ticker has some hot pickups and sell high suggestions - okay, just one sell high suggestion: Randy Moss.
  • Bruno Boys' Fantasy Football Week 1 Waiver Wire is up for your review - I like the watch list at the end but also wouldn't have minded seeing some D/STs up there. As a Seattle D/ST owner in several leagues, yesterday was um, not fun. I'm not sure I need to pull the trigger quite yet but they sure are making me nervous.

In addition to the items listed in the poll question, I'd love it if you could give us a look into the decisions you make over the course of the week for one of your leagues. Agonizing over sit/starts, waiver wire pickups, trade thoughts, etc. Assuming that wouldn't put your opponents at a competitive advantage, of course.

It wasn't just your local Fox affiliate. It just aired here in Boston as well. Congratulations.

There's a story about you on the new tonight in Minneapolis too, so you may have another few minutes of fame left. I hope that cold can wait!

Congrats on the news segment! If you pause the video on the split second that it's looking at your links, we even get free advertising...hah. Keep up the good work

Nice job. I like reading the NYTimes blog.

Awesome. I can't believe the story was picked up by Fox stations everywhere - too funny. Thank you all for letting me know.

Matthew - I sort of assumed that my own personal start/sit dilemmas might not be that interesting for you guys but if you want I can certainly talk about how I make some of my decisions. Thanks for the suggestion!
