Gobbling up fantasy football links

It's officially dead on campus today. I didn't see a single human this morning as I was crossing campus to get to the library, but I did see a beautiful fox - he was just trotting down the sidewalk and we both kind of stopped when we saw each other, scoping out the other living creature in an otherwise desolate campus. We stared at each other for several seconds, probably each wondering, "what the heck is that fox/human doing here?" and then carried on with our days. I've seen my fair share of wildlife in Boulder - it's fairly routine to see deer while I'm on a run in my neighborhood - but I've never seen anything more than impossibly large squirrels on campus.

Anyway, my desire to actually do work today is exceedingly low and I'd really rather blog about football all day instead. Or get started on that apple pie we're taking to one of our Thanksgiving dinners tomorrow. Yes, we ended up with two Tgiving dinner invitations after my fear of needing to eat a turkey all on my own. Now I have two occasions where I can give thanks to you all, my loyal FFLibrarian readers. Thanks for making this a great season so far and for coming by the blog!
  • Rotoworld has all of the games on Turkey Day (or as I prefer to think of it, Mashed Potato Day) covered here in their Thanksgiving Preview video. By the way, in the league where I just picked up Thigpen and Cassel, I'm with the 35% of you who have voted to keep Cassel in your lineup this week against the Steelers (as noted on Gregg's Goal Line Stand weekly rankings). I was planning on playing Thigpen but had a change of heart over the past few days...
  • Fantasy Sharks' Start/Bench List is up so check it out before you plug in your starters for the three NFL games tomorrow. Another start/sit list out there to look at before the Thursday games is FFToolbox's Week 13: Start 'em - I do like Larry Johnson this week for perhaps the first time all season. If you've got him, now is certainly the time to play him.
  • Fantasy Football Maniaxs are churning out content before the holiday is here - take a look at their Week 13 Dark Horses column for ideas on guys who are likely to have great games this week like Matt Ryan and DeSean Jackson. And I like the moderate expectations for Moore here - as a flex he'd be an excellent play this week.
  • Oh wait, a few more early bird (Tgiving pun intended - ha!) start/sit posts:
  • The Sports Data Hub guys have taken their extremely cool analysis tools and posted an article on which coaches can be relied on, be it home or away, to keep the pass or rush coming. Check it out as you're making start/sit decisions down the stretch.
I should be back at some point tomorrow with more start/sit links - not sure what time, but I'll be posting tomorrow!


Happy Thanksgiving to you. Enjoy some turkey and some football.

That's cool about the fox.

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
