Tom is Toppled and other Sunday highlights

My condolences to Patriots fans and Brady owners - I simply cannot believe that Tom Brady is out for the season. I keep checking and rechecking my multiple news sources to see if some new information has been revealed and that Brady is actually just a little hobbled for a week or two. I can't imagine a season without Brady; I wonder, will my sister wear her Brady jersey to work tomorrow out of homage?

In other news, Wee Willie Parker doesn't seem to be taking a backseat to Mendenhall, the Seattle defense was rather awful, Joe Flacco somehow had a better line than Carson Palmer (who expected that??), and Vince Young, Nate Burleson and Dallas Clark all suffered some sort of knee injury this week. Craziness and it's only Week 1, my friends. This is a great time to recommend Stephania Bell's blog on ESPN - she's a physical therapist who uses her expertise to make fantasy injury insights and is a great site to check out before making lineup decisions with your injured players.

Tomorrow night we're having friends over to celebrate the Monday Night Football doubleheader. Hopefully I won't be a total stress case over my fantasy teams (half of which aren't doing so well) since I think a hostess can't really be glued to her laptop...

And finally, for those of you who live in the Denver area, I think I might be on tv tonight. I was at home watching the Carolina vs. San Diego game when two guys from Fox came by to interview me. So at some point between 9 and 9:30 tonight I might be on tv talking about my blog.

Had Brady in 3 out of my 4 leagues... missed out on picking up M.Cassell in two. This is going to be a LOOOOOOONG season.

My team is not doing so well either unless Peyton starts scoring some TD's! I guess it is good they are behind since my opponent has Addai.

Great blog BTW!

I've been reading Stephanie's blog for a year now, great stuff.

Carson Palmer... no one ever expected that. He got a measly 5 points, luckily my opponent had Brady so it kinda evened out.

People are probably scrambling for Matt Cassell on the waivers now.

Hope to see you on TV! Good luck..

First the newspaper and now television. The networks will be calling soon. You are becoming a "Star-phanie" Bell.

Her blog is great. As is her contributions to the slate of ESPN podcasts.

you weren't just on TV in Denver...I saw you on Fox5 in DC!!
I lost Brady in 2 out of 3 leagues. Those two leagues are ones where we are starting 2 QB's. Someone else got Cassell. I have an option to get either Damon Huard, Joe Flacco, or going with Jamarcus Russell.

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
