Waiver Day

This Thursday I head down to Fort Lauderdale for my sister's bachelorette weekend. Dinner reservations have been made at a restaurant that has a mechanical bull. This should be good. While down there I will also see my grandmother (grandmothers and mechanical bulls go together well, no?) who turns 92 today (happy birthday Mimi!). And next week my grandfather turns 90 (the fam is all flying in to celebrate) and my other grandmother is 89. I have some seriously old grandparents. I'm blessed with an abundance of healthy genes which shall hopefully help me live forever, playing fantasy football for another 60+ years. Can't. wait.

But in the meantime I need to make some changes to a few of my fantasy teams. I had a slightly better week this week, in large part thanks to Reggie Bush's two punt returns for TDs (to see why, check out my daily blog on, which will go up later today) but I'm still not fielding teams that reach my without further ado, let's waiver it up.
  • This is the third week I've linked to Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's video and each week he mentions some quality guys for those of you in deeper leagues.
  • AccuScore's NFL Waiver Wire Wonders talks about the limited options on the waiver wire these days. Check out their advice on the only guys you'll want to consider grabbing these days.
  • Yahoo's Pickups of the Week support me in my love for Brandon Stokley this week. Seriously, does a week go by when I don't try a pimp a Bronco for your waiver wire? Unlikely. This week my fantasy crush, Tony Scheffler, and Eddie Royal are both possibly banged up and Stokley has shown some ability to step up for some of Cutler's awesomeness. So why not take a chance on Stokley?
  • Should we be more concerned with the San Diego o-line than with LT's toe? Gregg Rosenthal thinks that's where the real problem for LT might lie...
  • For those of you down with videos and radio shows, try's Two Feet In Bounds. Today they have TWO HOURS of fantasy football talk. I mean seriously, two hours?! Can that be beat? The show from last Friday is still up since today's show just ended, but I think today's show should show up in the archives before long.

What's the skinny with Nate Jackson? He was ahead of TS at one point in the preseason via the Denver TE rotation.

Rotoworld was talking about how the coaching staff was excited to get him involved.

Potentially more valuable than Daniel Graham in the short term?
Hi Andy,
I do like Nate Jackson a little more than Graham - I have virtually nothing to back this up other than gut though. Jackson is filling in for Scheffler so I think he's capable of being a decent fill-in while Scheff is out. Graham has been playing all along and I'm not convinced his work will change very much with Jackson in instead of Scheff. Hope that helps.

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
