Yes They Can - the Cardinals really made it...

Like the good native Washingtonian that I am, I will be watching the inauguration on tv tomorrow morning and likely won't get a post up until rather late in the I thought I'd get a few quick links up tonight.

I hope you all enjoyed the conference championship games this weekend. I still cannot believe that the Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl, but kudos to Arizona and its fans; and of course to the Steelers as well. By the way this was the first Saturday without some sort of football in months and months and I for one was a bit bummed. The ability to go for a run in a t-shirt made it a bit better (it's supposed to be nearly 70 here tomorrow!) but this is just a reminder of the cold, dark time ahead for us football fans.
  • If you found yourself occupied with other events this weekend (like say, en route to the big inauguration celebration like millions of others) and didn't catch the conference championship games, scope out Dr U Fantasy Football Guru's Fantasy Studs/Fantasy Duds - Championship Week for reasons to love Fitz...and to curse McClain. I'm happy to report that I had TE Brent Celek in one of my two leagues, which felt brilliant, I'll be honest. Certainly makes me wonder where he might be be ranked come August...
  • I think it's worth noting that Jacob from Fantasy Football Fools called the Cardinals vs Steelers Super Bowl outcome and went all out this past weekend with fantasy players from those two teams - so if you're looking for someone with some solid insight, keep the Fools in mind for the offseason.
  • FFXtreme has taken a look at their 2008 Third-Year Breakout Wide Receivers rankings with some reflection - and list their top 5 2009 third-year WRs. There are some great players on that list like Calvin Johnson but personally I'm digging Anthony Gonzalez in '09 - I see him being a better WR than Ginn, Breaston and maybe Bowe next year.
  • Wondering about injuries and how that might affect your fantasy decisions for the Super Bowl? Sure, some leagues are locked for the Super Bowl; whatever decisions you have made already are likely set for the final game unless you played my FFLibrarian's Challenge well and have some room for edits in your lineup. If so, and you're wondering how injuries might affect your lineup choices (like Hines Ward) read The Hazean's Monday Morning Rehab.
So speaking of that FFLibrarian's Challenge, here's a list of the overall top 10 in my competition:
  1. Year of the Vikes
  2. Salem Cowboys
  3. Al Davis Wannabe
  4. Los Angeles Pro State
  5. Renegades
  6. 28Rams39
  7. Ryan's Falcons
  8. Pocket Kings
  10. Project Fantasy X
Enjoy the historic day for our country and I'll be back soon with more links!

Thanks for the props on my call that the Cardinals and Steelers would face off in the Super Bowl. My fantasy team reaped the benefits.

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
