Butter fingers...but better than dropping a game-winning TD

This is one of those days that just hasn't started well for me at all. A good chunk of my frustrations are thanks to my butter fingers that dropped my beloved iPhone on the sidewalk as I hurried for the bus this morning...while the phone still works just fine there's a large spiderweb over about 1/4 of the screen. Not cool at all. Let this be a lesson to those of you running around without a case on your iPhone - don't be caseless like me. I'm not sure the case would've made a big difference for me but it sure couldn't have hurt. Anyway, I'm in a bit of a funk but will try and crank out some quality football links here:
  • Gotta love a mock draft coming from someone so clearly passionate about fantasy football - I may have found someone who is more excited about the 2009 season than I am...check out RotoExperts' Fantasy Football, Crazy Talk, Mocking in Fantasy Land for a mock first round of the NFL draft.
  • What's the deal with the Matt Hasselbeck's back and will the Seahawks attempt to get another QB on board during the draft? Take a look at CBS Sports' As Seahawks mull QB in draft, Hasselbeck vows he's healthy. I particularly like that Hasselbeck talks about being a Sunday NFL Draft man, watching on the 2nd day for the deeper picks.
  • I can't help but link to a Broncos article - see the Fifth Down's thoughts on what Denver will do with their first-round draft picks in Broncos, 2009 Draft Countdown, 18th and 12th picks.
  • Rotoworld led me to the NFL Draft Machine, which let's be honest here, has got to be fantasy football's latest and greatest way of sucking all the time out of your perhaps otherwise productive work day. I love it. I have only played with it for a few minutes but if you've got some spare time, play around with the Draft Machine and see what kind of mocking you can come up with.
  • Last year at this time I was a Laurent Robinson believer thanks to my brother-in-law's reports of the growing hype about him in Atlanta, so I enjoyed Rotoworld's Laurent Robinson gets a second chance post with some reasons to maybe give the guy a little late-round love now that he's moved to St. Louis.
  • FantasySharks' First QB Rankings - 11-20 are up for your perusal. Enjoy the 2008 recap and 2009 outlook for these more low-end fantasy starters and backup QBs.
I keep looking at my iPhone in hopes that this morning's clumsy-fest didn't actually happen - but instead the spiderweb crack is just winking back at me, mocking me for my mistake...Apple genius bar, here I come!

With hands like that, at least you could play receiver for the Seahawks.

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
