2009 rankings...and 2010 prospects?!

Tomorrow I head to Michigan to party it up for my grandma's 90th so I'll be quiet for the next few days while I hang with the family. Here's hoping today's links can carry you through the weekend!
  • Matthew Berry has his latest Top 200 up - I love seeing Clinton Portis and Chris Johnson in the top 10; I think there are some doubters out there on both of those players but I believe they're going to have great years...even Portis behind that old-man o-line.
  • FFToolbox brings us Overused Running Backs - a look at 20+ running backs who have rushed more than 400 times in the last two seasons and may be ripe for an injury. And I do realize the humor in seeing Portis at the top spot on this list here right after my statement on how great he'll be in 2009.
  • So who do you all think will be the top prospects for the 2010 NFL Draft? Yeah I'm serious. Rotoworld's Evan Silva wins an award for best draft go-getter with his Ten Draft Prospects for 2010 article.
  • Just curious, does Tiger Woods play second fiddle to Peyton Manning? I guess this isn't the right group of people to ask since you're all likely more football fans than golf fans, but if you were at Quail Hollow following the Tiger/Peyton duo around, which one would you angle to meet/photograph/get an autograph from, etc? My husband need not reply since I think he'd plow down Tiger to meet Peyton.
  • Can the Vikes dominate in '09 without a franchise quarterback? In Lack of franchise QB could vanquish Vikings in 2009, SportingNews looks at how the team might do with basically everything you might need - except that ol' QB guy.
  • Speaking of QBs, Fantasy Sharks has a QB Strength of Schedule article that should be of interest as you start to pull together your fantasy QB rankings - I do not care to see the Broncos at the bottom of that list with the toughest pass SOS. Not cool at all!
Enjoy the weekend!

btw follow your stuff regularly and I'm sure it may become religiuosly as we get closer to the start of the 09 season...just wanted to say, great blog..

...on last thought, I'm not sure how close the Vikes are in all other depts, but if they are close, all they may need to contend is "Trent Dilfer"...and I don't think too many would disagree with Rosenfels being close to filling that you never know.

Great stuff here library lady!!

I was thinking of creating a fantasy league for 2009 with some other sites listed on your blogroll.
Is that possible?

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
