Post-holiday weekend fantasy review

Greetings fantasy footballers. Hope you all had a great holiday weekend - I'm struggling to be here at work today after so many days off; fortunately for me I had some foresight 6 months ago and made a dentist appointment for this afternoon. Since I'm the rare individual that actually looks forward to going to the dentist (love a good cleaning!), my afternoon is looking pretty sweet.

But a morning full of fantasy football links sounds pretty good, too, eh? I don't know about you all but somehow I've found myself in a handful of must-win situations in order to make it to the playoffs so I'm still sweating tonight's game - and even the Week 14 games. Where to turn? To the experts...
  • First, I am so sorry Cleveland fans. What a rough turn of events over the past few weeks (wait, past few years? Past SEVERAL years?) and now with Derek Anderson's injury I can only imagine how hard it is to be a Browns fan. My sympathies. If you missed any of the injury news this week, turn to The Hazean's Monday morning rehab for an update.
  • Check out the Fantasy Sharks' On the Rise, On the Fall for thoughts on which of your players might be of more help down the stretch than others. I thought I might see Clinton Portis' name on here - I love him but he had a tough week against the Giants and faces the Ravens next - definitely not ideal.
  • For info on which guys to snag off the waiver wire, take a look at Lester's Legend's Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em - Ryan Grant owners I hope you've already got Brandon Jackson in mind or on your roster. I'm not convinced that Grant could have returned after all.
  • Or scope out more waiver wire advice from these guys:
  • And finally, if you missed any of the action from the weekend and are wondering which players rounded out the Top 5 in each position, see Rotoworld's Sunday Schooled: All Day and All Night.
Enjoy your Monday and I'll be back tomorrow with more links!

i have a request that needs a librarians touch... do you know of/ have/could you make a list of best cold weather/ crappy weather kickers. looking for that 15 to 3 game with the guy kicking 5 FG's on my team. i need an edge in the playoffs !
Lindell. He made a bunch straight within 40. Considering he plays in Buffalo, he's seen it all.

He missed two this week, which could free him up.

You're not showing much faith in Ken Dorsey FFL.

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
