Colts out = bad things for my fantasy lineup

For so many reasons I'm bummed that the Colts lost last night - not only are they one of my favorite teams (and my husband would like to name our firstborn child Peyton Manning Holladay) but they are a major component in my fantasy playoffs lineup. This is an unfortunate turn of events. Today I will be eschewing my fantasy needs and will pull for Miami - love the feel-good story there - despite the fact that I have absolutely zero Dolphins on either of my fantasy playoffs lineups.

Speaking of which, thanks to all of you who are in my FFLibrarian's Challenge - there are 161 of us and I'm floored by how many of you have shown interest. You guys are awesome and I'm excited to see who will come out on top! Onto the links for today:
  • Bruno Boys' Wild Card Weekend Updated Rankings - Risers & Fallers - sure, half the games are over but the Bruno Boys nailed Sproles here so you might want to scope their thoughts on today's games before finalizing the remainder of your fantasy lineup.
  • If you have the Eagles D/ST on your fantasy lineup like me or you're just curious about the Eagles vs Vikings matchup, check out Football news from a chick's Eagles sure to blitz.
  • Perhaps you're not into this playoffs fantasy football thing but you're still looking for FF info and links - no problem. FFXtreme has the results from six rounds of their 2009 non-PPR mock draft up with commentary on guys to keep an eye on and possible sleepers for next season.
  • Or take a look at CBS Sportsline's Fantasy & Reality: Buckle Up for some early thoughts on 2009 - Dave Richard promises an extremely busy offseason, which frankly makes me quite happy. You already have a head start on the rest of your league by being here since I will do my best to keep you updated on all things fantasy football.
By the way - and this is apropos to nothing - if you saw someone show up at a football game wearing a Snuggie (yes, I apparently have been watching a lot of ESPN lately and therefore getting a heavy dose of infomercials on the Snuggie), would you laugh your head off or feel a little bit jealous? The Snuggie looks absolutely ridiculous but as a person who is often cold and found covered with a blanket, a tiny part of me actually covets the Snuggie...though I cannot possibly fathom why an individual would risk wearing a Snuggie to a football game, much less donning the entire family in Snuggies. That's asking for some serious trouble if you ask me.

As I write this I am wrapped in my Snugglie and wiping my profuse tears with a Sham-Wow wondering why I loaded up on Falcons and Colts. I guess I can kiss that $25 gift card good-bye. Wait till next year!!!

The really sad thing about last night is that I had Sproles in my line-up and at 3:15 I exchanged Sproles for Michael Turner. Yeah. I'm a smart one. Thanks for setting up the league. I too believe I am officially out of the running.
Paw Paw...your comments made me laugh all I can say is sham-WOW.

Maybe somebody you know skilled in crafts could fashion a Bronco-themed Snuggie-like blanket?

Westbrook came through with a TD, so I at least didn't feel like a complete fool. I'll still need to replace Peyton, D. Clark, R. Wayne, Vinatieri and J. Addai (in addition to Roddy White), exhausting 6 of my 8 moves. *sigh* That doesn't bode well for having much of a team come Superbowl.
The Colts killed me too.

What kills me about The Amazing Snuggie (and I mentioned this in my own blog post re: the same) is that, besides looking completely ridiculous, it's still open in the back. So it wouldn't do you a bit of good sitting on cold metal bleachers, no matter what the TV commercials show of the "happy family" all cheering Johnny's soccer game in their matching Snuggies.

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
