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

Great video - you looked great! You are turning into quite the celebrity!

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!

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
