Broncos drama and free agency signings

Oh my Broncos. Such drama this weekend! I don't even know where to start but I guess Cutler as potential trade bait is probably the biggest story followed by Brandon Marshall's latest arrest and of course free agent pickups like Brian Dawkins and Correll Buckhalter. So let's just get right to it - I love my Broncos, I love Cutler and yes, he can come off as a bit of a whiner...but is there any possible way Cassel was worth that trade for the Broncos? Negatory, good buddy, so I just don't buy that the Broncos were really giving it much consideration at all. I'm siding with Gregg Rosenthal on this one and assuming that it will blow over fairly soon, but now there's the Marshall news, too; how will this affect Marshall, Cutler and/or Royal's fantasy value for 2009? It's like deja vu here...

The Olympic Curling Trials were awesome - I'll get some photos and such up tomorrow, I hope, but I've gotta say that it was actually one of the more dramatic finishes to a sporting event that I've been to in a long time. There are 10 ends (kind of like innings), which was probably 4 or 5 too many for my taste, but the decision of which team moved on to the Olympics came down to the very last play in the last end when a seemingly seasoned player totally choked and missed a shot that I bet he would've made 9 times out of 10 in any other setting. Crazy curling! The rest of the weekend was filled with snowshoeing, practice field goal kicking and other fun stuff with my bro-in-law who is here visiting us in Colorado. I'm kind of hoping he'll get snowed in and not be able to make it back to his home in Atlanta on time - he's a good time.

I am going on the record regarding Matt Cassel - 2009 will NOT be a repeat of 2008. The KC O-line is not that good - and KC is a young team in a rebuilding phase.

He'll be picked way too high in most fantasy drafts - he's not QB1 material.

I *might* pick him up in round 13 or later, but certainly not earlier than that.

Last year cassle put my team through the furthest i been in my league's playoff's . next year i won't touch him with a ten foot pole! even if he is there in round 13! Upchuck is too good at what he does and cassel was merely another cog. I'm eying Taylor this year... hope no one else is!

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.

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
