Correcting for Injuries for Week 15

What a weekend. With Frank Gore, Brandon Jacobs, Peyton Hillis and many others all sustaining injuries yesterday, I am sure many fantasy football seasons have been affected (or are about to be affected...) and perhaps some of you are now sweating bullets over lineup gaps. To get the latest on injury news, here are a few sites to get you up to speed:
But all the injuries of course mean there are lots of waiver wire articles to scope out as well:
  • FootballDocs' Pick-up/Drop Advice - I enjoy the "vs the Rams" defense suggestion here. Yes indeed, it looks like any team playing the Rams might just be a decent defense to snag. I put the Cardinals in my lineup in place of the Eagles D/ST at the last minute and was rewarded with 25 points. Nice, real nice.
  • Bruno Boys' Waiver Wire points out how well Kevin Walter has done, and I think he has extra value with Schaub behind the helm; could be a nice snag for the rest of the playoffs.
  • Lester's Legends' Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em - has some additional playoff bonus suggestions beyond the regular rulings on waiver wire guys.
And if you're still wondering what the heck happened in all the games this weekend, here are some helpful recaps or fantasy overviews, my favorite probably being the Football Outsiders' Audibles at the Line. But also check out:
Three of my seven leagues started playoffs this week and here's my outcome in those three leagues:
  1. In the Bruno Boys' experts league I failed to make the playoffs - bad, ugly season for me.
  2. I made the playoffs in CBS Sportsline's IDP experts league but unless my defender Jon Beason can put up 25+ points tonight, I'll lose to Scott Engel from RotoExperts in the first round.
  3. In a league with guys from Sports Data Hub it looks like I've made it through the first round of playoffs despite completely forgetting that I had Marion Barber in that league and didn't remember to try and replace him until 2 minutes after the Dallas game had started. This is what happens when you're in seven leagues; thankfully I think I'll make it through unscathed this week.
I'll keep you posted on how many other playoffs I make it to in my remaining four leagues. If everything goes well tonight, looks like I'll be in the playoffs in three of those four leagues for a total record of five playoffs in seven leagues. Not bad but who wouldn't want to be in all seven playoffs, right?

Morten Anderson is available in my league. Do you think it's a good idea to pick him up for the stretch run?

I felt foolish when I called out Jacobs earlier in the year saying you should move him. Now, I'm starting to get the crow out of my mouth. Maybe I was right.

Hillis had a chance to join the fantasy legends like Billy Volek and Onterrio Smith.

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
