Happy Super Bowl Day!

I've decided there are few things worse than a laptop malfunction, which is exactly what I've been battling with for the past several days, hence the lack of blog posts. Thanks to the invasion of a stubborn virus, I've been slowly trying to grab things off of my dying laptop in 5 minute spurts before the laptop crashes yet again. Fun times here. But really, I should be wishing you all the merriest of Super Bowl Days! It's like a national holiday for me and I'm gearing up for the Super Bowl party circuit later this afternoon.

The celebrations actually started for me last night as I went to one of my closest friend's 30th birthday party. The party included a white elephant gift exchange and you all are about to be really jealous when you hear what I took home...a Snuggie. The blanket with sleeves. I am currently staring at the blue mass of fleece that's sprawled all over a chair in my house. In fact it's so massive there's hardly chair visible and my cat might even be hidden in there somewhere; this Snuggie thing is unbelievable (just can't decide if it's unbelievably good or unbelievably bad) and I feel a mix of happiness and embarrassment at owning such an item. It might come to my Super Bowl parties with me today.

Anyway, moving on to the top fantasy football sites at predicting wide receivers for the 2008 here are the Top 5 sites for WRs - and remember, the rest of all the top 10 lists will be posted on the NY Times' Fifth Down later this week.

  1. Fantasy Football Trader

  2. Yahoo! Fantasy Sports

  3. Fantasy Football Nerd

  4. Fantazzle Fantasy Sports Games


Then a few links for today:

  • FFManiaxs' rankings for 2009 kickers and defenses are up - take a look for those in dynasty leagues or just those of you who are doing your 2009 homework already (and a hearty well done to you!).
  • Gregg Rosenthal's blog Pancake Blocks has been updated several times with all sorts of Tampa news. Read up.
  • And finally, Accuscore took a stab at determining which Super Bowl player is the most valuable - Warner vs Roethlisberger and Ward vs Fitzgerald.

Enjoy the game today!!

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.

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
