Cornucopia of Start/Sit Links

How about the CU Buffs?! Despite working for CU, I'm not even a huge Colorado fan (it goes back to the whole Gary Barnett suddenly leaving my alma mater, Northwestern, to come to CU) but I think it's worth mentioning that they beat #21 West Virginia in a solid overtime game last night. Well done, Buffs, well done.

So there have been a few of you who have asked where in the Westwood One program I do an analysis of QBs for Week 3 - it's about 1/3 of the way through the program (starting maybe 18 or 19 minutes in). I'd love to hear any feedback since this was the first time I've done a radio or podcast segment and have been toying with whether or not to do them more often. I know I'm not a radio natural so any feedback would be appreciated.

FYI, this will likely be my first post for the day - I'll get some IDP advice and consensus start/sit info up later today.
  • First up, my post on the NY Times' Fifth Down blog - Fantasy Football: Upheaval and Advice has a few of my favorite links for the week, most of which I didn't post here on my blog already, and an update on my use of the FFNerd to make start/sit decisions.
  • Don't sweat Brandon Marshall's latest news - he knew charge was coming as did the NFL. There is some discrepancy as to whether or not this will result in another suspension or not, but the trial won't occur for several months (November at the earliest) so if there is another suspension, it likely won't take place until 2009. For now, breathe easy, Marshall owners.
  • Read some quick thoughts on this week's upcoming games from Rotoworld in Can the Jags Still Run?
Now for the cornucopia of start or sit sites for the week:

Start/sit question: I start two RBs and my options are: Julius Jones, Michael Turner, and LT. The thing with LT is that he plays monday, so if I wait on him and have to make a last minute change my only option is adding L Washington as a free agent. Thanks

Out of all your links who do you feel consistently has the best INTEL and advice??

Hey Brian... I'll solve your problem and trade you Sproles for Michael Turner ;)

But really, anyone think Sproles is worth a flex start this week? Awesome links as always, librarian.

This is quite a helpful site! Neat recommendations of other FF links as well....thanks,A2L
Hi Brian,
I think that Turner will have a great game and Julius Jones is also poised to do really well this week. It's hard to advise sitting LT, but that's what I would suggest in this circumstance. As for Sproles, I do think he'd make a great flex player this week but relying on him to be one of your 2 RBs for the week might be asking a bit too much.

James, you have asked me the hardest question of all. Each site has its own pluses and minuses but I think two of my favorites are Rotoworld and The Huddle. But I love the news/intel from KFFL and there are blogs like FFGoat and The Hazean that I really value. FFOutsiders and Football Docs are also two other great sites. Man, this is hard - I could keep going for awhile here...

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
