LeBron from 60 feet and FF links

I'm officially ready for spring. Now that Colorado got a massive snowstorm out of the way last week I'm content to let winter slide on out - bring on the blooming trees, flower buds and oh yes, the NFL Draft. As expected the number of draft articles is starting to ramp up so soak it all up, I say. And if there's any specific fantasy football info that you're looking for this offseason, send me an e-mail and I'll see if I can find it.

By the way, my favorite commercial this weekend during the tourney? A 60 Minutes blurb where we saw LeBron James hit an underhanded toss dead-on from well past the half court mark. Every time that commercial aired I think I giggled and felt a little more wowed by LeBron.
  • FantasySharks bring on part 1 of their Mocking the 2009 NFL Draft - check back soon for part 2 with the next 16 picks of the first round.
  • is keeping an updated ranking by position of all the incoming rooks; take a look to see the latest on where your favorite college players might go. And clearly I haven't been paying very close attention to college TEs since I see there's a guy from Fresno State named Bear. Bear Pascoe. That rocks. So does the name Glen Coffee. Can I have a cool name draft?
  • Perhaps if I had already read Rotoworld's Draft '09: The Tight Ends I would've been better prepared for the awesomeness of Bear's name.
  • LJ is on probation. I'm somewhat intrigued by what he might do this year - anything? Will he even be in KC? He still had a few flashes of brilliance (against my poor Broncos, for example) this past season but it sure does seem like LJ's time has come and gone. FFXtreme has some thoughts on what to do with Johnson if you've got him.
  • CBS Sports' Stockwatch: A pre-draft look at fantasy RBs should entertain most of you since RBs are the bread and butter of FF. I certainly don't disagree that MJD is going to have a big year, but I've gotta be honest, I'm not of the mindset that he's going to have a tremendous season or be worthy of the 3rd overall draft as noted here. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have him on my team but I'm not convinced he'll live up to the hype.
  • AOL Fanhouse reports on Michael Vick's intentions to bring in big figures from the NFL - just where will that be happening though? Who is taking the Vick Risk?
All for now, my fantasy football friends - enjoy the start of the week!

Most definitely a great football name. I'm very glad to see somebody else appreciate Bear Pascoe. The best part is his given name... "McKinna" LOL. He was born to be a rodeo roper.

Keep Up the Great Work FF Librarian. I am a big fan!

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.

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
