Getting sick of drafting

Greetings fantasy footballers. The first regular season game is just two days away and I'm currently stuck at home on my couch with a bit of a fever and a cold. I have just one more draft left tonight (and it's just a 4-round dynasty draft) so I've decided to blame this sickness on a total fantasy draft overload. Fortunately, being sick just means that I can sit here watching SportsCenter or preseason replays while I work, so I should be extremely up-to-date on football news. Silver lining, baby.

The football links for today are as follows:
  • What do you do with Rudi Johnson in Detroit? I just don't see Rudi having a fantasy-worthy season this year but if you own Kevin Smith, you could snag Rudi as insurance. See what Rotoworld has to say on Rudi and others in Rudi Resurfaces in Detroit - this includes a link to a fantastic article on Ricky Williams trying to go to med school. Yes, for real.
  • Scott Engel's Fantasy Football: Angles, the wait it over reminds us not to get "cute" and start rookies or untested players just because we like their matchup this week; let your best players start and see how the first week pans out.
  • One of the first start/sit lists of the week is up! FFXtreme's Fantasy Football Start and Bench Advice: Week 1 is ready for your perusal.
  • Just in case you haven't drafted yet and are looking for some late WR potential, check out the FF Geek Blog's Late-round wide receiver sleepers.
  • FFToolbox has your Who to Start Week #1 player rankings up - FFToolbox will be posting a lot of weekly content, so I definitely recommend checking them out as the week goes by (and as the season goes by!).

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
