Never go in against a librarian...

...when blogging is on the line. Okay, so that was kind of a crappy repurposing of the Princess Bride quote, but I must confess that The Hazean and I have made a bit of a wager on who will win the Broncos v. Saints game here in Denver this weekend. The Hazean has written all about it so let's just say I plan to have The Hazean guest blogging here on the FFLibrarian about how awesome the Broncos offense is. That will be the first time I've ever had a guest blogger on the site and I can't think of a better reason than this. Let's hope I'm not getting too cocky here...

And in other afternoon news:
  • Thigpen (seriously, I know this guys has probably heard this all his life but all I think of is Pigpen from Peanuts) will be the Chiefs' starting QB this week while Gus Frerotte will be the Vikings' starting QB for the rest of the season. Frerotte was already in 3rd grade when I was born so while I find this perhaps an upgrade from Jackson, it's hardly something to be psyched about.
  • And my column with the Bruno Boys' A Librarian's Touch is up - Forecasting Streaky Players where I touch on guys like Anthony Fasano and Isaac Bruce who have been quite up and down so far this season.

I am conflicted: I love this website & I want to sign the Librarian's praises from the highest mountaintop, but I don't want the folks in my leagues to have the knowledge I have & I don't want to post links to her site on my music board 'cause I'm affraid of too many horses asses coming here. My mom always said to share....what should I do???
Thanks for the love, jackal and anon. Jackal, your enthusiasm for librarians is much appreciated. Anon, feel no pressure to share the site - I understand your sentiments and am personally sorry that my good friend, Ethan, who is in several of my leagues, reads my blog daily. So do what you must - this is ultimately about winning your league, no? :)

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
