Who doesn't bowl better to "Here I Go Again"?

Hi fantasy friends - I'm about to head off to my bowling league for the night where I swear I play better when the jukebox is rocking out some Whitesnake, but first I wanted to post a couple of FFLibrarian-related afternoon links for you. My daily blog with is up, No Bull From the Fantasy Librarian, where I discuss my crazy sister and of course more football links with advice on sleepers, busts and who's hot for Week 6.

And my weekly A Librarian's Touch column with the Bruno Boys is up - Which Top 10 Running Backs will remain strong in 2008? I looked at the top 10 RBs at this point one year ago compared to the top ten at the end of the 2007 season - 7 of the 10 were already set at this point last year. While I'm sure that number varies year to year, I looked at which 3 RBs I don't think will make the top 10 cut come January.

Also, while I won't have a blog up here until tomorrow afternoon at the earliest, my blog on will be up sometime in the morning so feel free to check it out on the left side of the page with the other NFL Analysis if you need your daily link fix.

I've found that I bowl better when the music is good as well. This summer I sucked through two whole games of Michael Bolton or something similar, complaining the entire way. Only to finally come alive thanks to some much needed Zeppelin.

Your (great) column on top 10 RBs mentioned who wouldn't be there at season's end...but who will take their place?

In reference to the "No Bull" article...I'm pretty sure Chad Pennington went to Marshall as in therefore not a "former Vol" as you mentioned. Keep up the good work!!!

during many nights of drunkin bowling back in college i have determined that AC/DC is the best bowling music with Hell's Bells being the best overall bowling song...this is a proven fact!

Desean Jackson, Lance Moore, or Earnest Graham in the flex spot?

Can start 2 RB, 2 WR, and 1 RB/WR:

RB: Steven Jackson, Frank Gore, Earnest Graham, and Ricky Williams

WR: Lance Moore, Larry Fitzgerald, Roddy White, Roy Williams, and Desean Jackson

What should be my lineup?
I'll try to get a little Zeppelin and AC/DC on the juke box next time I bowl - nice calls, guys.

Anon, you must have an inside line into my brain. I am writing about that exact question in tomorrow's column for the Times. I'll have a link up to it tomorrow. Glad to know there might be at least one interested reader!

Oh man, thanks for catching my Pennington mistake, anon. I should've known that Pennington is a Knoxville native, not a former Vol. My apologies to Marshall fans, Pennington fans and Knoxvillians everywhere who knew how terribly wrong I was...

As for the start questions...
1. In the flex I would go with Graham; RBs are usually a good call but I think SF has a decent pass defense and if Colston is back in the mix, Moore might have a more (ha) limited week.

2. I'd go with Jackson, Gore and Williams in the flex (though I could be talked into Graham very easily) and Fitz and White at WR.

I won't bowl unless Strawberry Alarm Clock is playing. I'll stand there holding my bowling ball staring at the pins and absolutely refuse to roll otherwise.

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
