Troy Polamalu and I have the same hair. Almost.

Greetings from Ft. Lauderdale where it's so humid, my Colorado skin has no idea what hit it. I'm going to look like a member of an 80s hair band soon if this keeps up. Or Troy Polamalu. My dad and I are having dinner with an aunt soon and then picking up my sister tonight at the airport - the family fun ends tomorrow and my sister's gaggle of friends arrive for the bachelorette fun. Right now though I'm really digging the down time with the fam.

So let's get to some football - thanks for being patient with my travels today.
  • The AccuScore guy and I don't see eye to eye on Marion Barber (for my thoughts on why he won't be a top 10 RB by the end of the season, see my column from the Bruno Boys) but I do really like most of the analysis in NFL Trade Market so take a look if you're in the market for mixing your team up a bit.
  •'s Champs & Chumps is up for Week 6 - take a look at this fleshed out list and see what you think. I am of the camp that Nate Jackson might just benefit more than Daniel Graham with Tony Scheffler out, but I base that only in gut, no actual knowledge or news of events in Denver.
  • Try Fantasy Tailgate's Starters & Slackers for more start or sit advice this week. I swear they've list Ocho Cinco here before with a "is this th week Johnson steps up his game?" comment, which frankly makes sense since I think we've all been wondering that week after week.
  • I would like to once again point out the awesomeness of UltimateFFStrategy's advice-giving turnaround time. Check it - he will get back to you in 30 minutes if you post a question to his forum. 30 minutes! This guy must be superman, so take advantage.
  • In a keeper league and wondering which guys are worth hanging onto as you deal with byes, injuries and other ups and downs? Get some advice from the FFGeekBlog's Mid-season keeper league prospects.
  • Truly, few things are as solid of a read as the Weekly Gut Check from FFToday - this week's installment looks at that rad Strength of Schedule matrix and that we need knowledge and perspective, not just stats, to inform our decisions. He also reminds us all not to get too caught up in fantasy football...hmm, a lesson I can always stand to hear.
Two final notes: 1. how happy am I that Colston is practicing again?! Very. 2. I'm rocking the bowling average - I bowled a 110 average last night, beating my previous 101 average. Oh my God, I'm becoming a legit bowler...

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
