Future Fantasy Footballer in the Making

Today is a great day, my fantasy football friends. My husband and I are a little bit closer to figuring out where we might live next year (he's finishing up his PhD this spring so he's on the job market now, traveling around for interviews) and I just found out that one of my closest friends is having a baby. Not only do I get to be Aunt Sara but it's another little mind to lead to fantasy football...and yes I realize that makes me sound like a cult leader or something. The cult of fantasy football?? Well then, read on for some cult news.

  • So the NFL Combine is right around the corner. While many of us are spending our days wondering just how much longer winter will last, there are incoming rookies anxiously prepping for the big week in Indy. If you're wondering which players you should be keeping an eye on, take a look at The Hazean's The Rookie Report: Scouting the Scouting Combine. Or see what KFFL has to say in their 2009 NFL Draft Rankings: Top 100. Probably like many of you, I read The Blind Side last year and would like to see where Michael Oher falls come draft day.
  • Have you heard yet that Favre's retiring? Ha, of course you have. If you were anywhere near any media outlet in the past 24 hours, I guarantee you're already begging the local sports guy or girl to make the Favre news stop. But I do believe this is it for Favre's career and I'm interested in seeing what he does next.
  • If you took a football hiatus since the Super Bowl and are wondering now what you might have missed out on, no worries, Gregg Rosenthal has you covered. He took a break as well (though his break occurred in Costa Rica, which is where I wish I was right now) and has a recap of some storylines while he was out of town.
  • If you've been keeping up with your NFL news but are having a hard time keeping some of it straight, has you covered - they offer up a coaching changes cheatsheet and updates on players that have been cut so far, both of which are pretty darn helpful.
All for now, I'm off to go scope out baby toys. I mean how many plush football toys can I buy for my friend's baby??

Who do you think will be the first pick in the draft?

Sarah, I imagine you're going to be really, really sad to leave Boulder. Here's hoping your family's job relocation puts you in an equally nice location.
Adrian Peterson BettorFan.

Good luck finding a nice place to land.

May I suggest a bobblehead for the baby. You're a Broncos fan so an Elway bobble would be perfect.
I agree with Lester's Legends - AP will go #1 in fantasy drafts for sure. But are you thinking of the NFL Draft, BettorFan? The Lions need help in so many ways but I could certainly see them going for a QB - maybe Stafford?

And yes, bigboid, I am going to be very sad to leave Boulder. This place is unique (and of course has its downfalls) so it will be hard to say goodbye. That said, being closer to our family is such a plus that it automatically makes our next east coast location appealing.

Now if anyone has a library or fantasy football job in NYC or DC that they'd like to offer me, do let me know. :)

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
