Looking for a fireplace and more start/sit links

It is 40 degrees colder in Boulder today than it was on Tuesday - I love the wacky weather here but there was a thick layer of ice on our car this morning. Normally this is not a big deal since we take the bus to work but my husband was off to the airport for a conference, so there was some serious ice scrapping going on to get him on the road on time. I'm just glad he's not trying to fly into the Cleveland or Buffalo areas - looks like you guys are getting hit by a pretty big storm today.

Anyway, enough talk about weather (though I could certainly keep it up for a long time) - there are lots of links to get to today...
  • First, thanks to Chris for sending this link my way - check out's NFL Stats section for some helpful stats details. I particularly like the rushing and passing yards allowed per game options - and being able to compare the season vs the past three games as well as home vs away. Very helpful.
  • Some of you might be seeing the sad end of your fantasy season approaching and are already perhaps thinking ahead to 2009. Well Mr. X's The Fire Sale: Getting with the Program from Sports Grumblings has some amusing opinions on the types of leagues that too outdated for you to be playing anymore. I particularly agree with you on the IDP front, Mr. X.
  • If you still haven't figured out which guys to grab off the waiver, here's some late week advice from the Fantasy Sports Forum's Get 'em While They're Hot.
  • Some start and sit links are already up, though remember to check back tomorrow if you want the rest of the list - and I promise to do the consensus start/sit picks this week!
  • My weekly column for the Bruno Boys is up: FFL - Late Season Surprises though note that since I wrote the post I've seen reports that Mark Bradley is injured, not seriously, but it's something to keep an eye on.
  • FFManiaxs' Week 12 Dark Horses gives reasons why Matt Cassel should be in your lineup this week, along with other guys like Jonathan Stewart and Steve Breaston.
Enjoy the game tonight!

Hello all, quick question...

In a PPR / 12pt TD league I am debating sitting Lee Evans in favor or Wes Welker or Justin Gage.

Welker is a PPR king but Gage is starting to heat up...

Whats your take on this?

welker rarely gets in the endzone and gage will definitely get looks with the jets run D shutting johnson and white down. but i might stick with lee against the brownies... at least it seems whenever i give up on a guy he does awesome that week... IMHO

question of my own... hillis vs the raiders or k. smith vs tampa bay.. smith gets a dome and is solid every week but does hillis provide a potential for greater points (i kind of need the potential but i definitely want at least some points) PPR

Does Shanahan love Al Davis? No, in fact he hates him with a passion.

Look for Shanahan to run the score up big time.

Hillis is a no brainer!

Fantasy Sports Forum has spammy pop-ups. You can drop them, unless there is some reason you like to post links to crappy sites?
Great feedback on the spammy pop-ups - definitely keep that info coming and thanks for making me chuckle.
And I forgot to comment on the start/sit questions here...Bob, I think I'd actually go with Welker. I like the chemistry he has with Cassel and I think the Pats are seeing this game as a must win and migh use go-to Welker quite a bit. Plus he's just so scrappy - love that.

Potlicker, I'm in complete agreement with The Dewd on this one - go with Hillis without a doubt.

Good luck guys!

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
