Combine winding down

Today I would like to discuss the beauty of a Colorado winter. Sure, some days walking to the bus stop is a miserable, windy, snowy experience but then there are weeks like this one where the high every day will be right around 60. Awesomeness. Apparently I'm not much of a winter person. That whole sun and warm temperatures thing has a way of winning me over. I chatted up my grandparents yesterday who live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and they were in the midst of yet another snowstorm. Michiganders, I think it's time you consider moving to Colorado. Yes I realize there's nothing like a summer in Michigan but sadly there's also nothing quite like a winter in Michigan. Except maybe a winter in Buffalo.

Lots of NFL Combine news to catch up on - take a look at the following links for Combine news and beyond:
  • Fifth Down's Biggest Loser at Combine, and it's not Crabtree has some nice updates both on incoming rookies and oldies but goodies like Marvin Harrison. And speaking of Harrison, see what ESPN has to say in Harrison's career in Indy may be ending.
  • If you'd like all the nitty-gritty details on the Combine, take a look at FFToolbox's impressive results page - this link will take you to quarterbacks but you can link to all other positions from this page as well.
  • If it's a player profile you're in the market for with these rooks, brings you's profiles, divided up by position - my favorite element here is the NFL comparison feature.
  • I finally finished a 10-round mock draft and my roster is as follows:
    • QB: Aaron Rodgers (5.04)
    • RB: DeAngelo Williams (1.04), Chris Johnson (2.07), Jonathan Stewart (6.07), Derrick Ward (8.07)
    • WR: Brandon Marshall (3.04), Wes Welker (4.07), DeSean Jackson (7.04), Donald Driver (9.04)
    • TE: Greg Olsen (10.07)
  • I debated pretty heavily between Greg Olsen and Kellen Winslow at that TE spot but ultimately went with the team that I trust a little bit more to have their act together. To read up on keeper thoughts for TEs though, take a look at ProFantasySports' Keepers - TEs. I do love Brent Celek in 2009. Let me say it again: I love the Brent Celek potential.


Real solid squad.

i'll admit it... i have a man crush on Welker. he is by far my favorite player in the NFL and if Harrison leaves, Gonzo would be the only one to supplant him! oh and i think your team rocks, rogers is a great QB who will just get better and while i don't much like marshal with cutler throwing to him he should be awesome. passing on Winslow is a tough one for me, especially for olsen... but that may just be the homer in me :) great picks ! (Johnson is a steal!)

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
