FFLibrarian elsewhere on the web & other links

As promised, I'm back with more links for the afternoon.
  • First, I mentioned this earlier in the week but I am going to be blogging on the Fantasy Players Network on a daily basis for a little while. I'll have completely different content and almost entirely different links up there, so if you want another serving of the FFLibrarian, check out my blog on that site, too. Here's a link for today's post.
  • And then because I apparently can't get enough of writing columns and posts, you can also find my new Bruno Boys' A Librarian's Touch article up now - Shop em Don't drop em, where I look at some of the big name players that aren't producing at the level we expected from them.
  • If you're looking for more wavier wire advice, check out FFToday's Through the Wire - what if with a new coach, Bulger suddenly looks pretty decent? Is that possible or is the o-line in shambles still? Antonio points out that the Rams' schedule looks mighty sweet starting around Week 9. That's not so far off, the way, a clutch feature to this article is the inclusion of IDPs - fantastic.
  • Check out's Week 5 TE Cheat Sheet (they'll have cheat sheets up for other positions, too) - take a look at that top 10 for Week 5. I think TEs are so hard to predict and this just supports that. No way that I would've expected Fasano, Carlson, Shiancoe and Lee to all be ranked in the top 10 of any week (except maybe Fasano, whom I liked from the start). I realize this is just one week but I'm intrigued.
Finally, I just wanted to add that whatever my political leanings are (and while I'm happy to share, just not sure you all need politics mixed in with your fantasy football), I would have gone to hear Cindy McCain speak, too, were she here on campus. It's a cultural and historical event to be able to hear national leaders speak in your town...but I'll get off my soap box on that one - just wanted to throw that out there since I heard from a few of you about this. But most importantly, former Bronco Rod Smith was there doing one of the introductions and encouraging people to register to vote. I lurked around the stage at the end hoping to actually meet him but I couldn't find him among the crowds and eventually had to get back to work...sad. I need to start investigating my options of becoming and official "media" person at these sorts of events. Does a fantasy football blogger count as a member of the media??

First things first...Excellent site! You are a daily read.

Second, Michelle Obama IS NOT a National Leader! Having said that, I'd go see her also out of pure curiosity.
Point taken, thanks. I would suggest that "leader" is all relative much like "expert" in the fantasy football world. :) How about national or political figure instead?

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
