Show me the snow & football links

Supposedly there will be 10 to 22 inches of snow on the ground by the end of the day on Saturday here in Boulder. I don't buy it - there's been a slushy snow-rain coming down all morning so some sort of unbelievable precipitation dump will need to happen tonight when it gets colder. Plus, 10 to 22 inches; could that be a wider range?! Sorry for the weather tangent - let's get back to football.
  • Rotoworld concludes their Team Needs series with a look at the NFC East and North. Taking a look at what various teams need to be a contender in 2009 (or just to avoid an 0-16 season) has really reminded me that football season is not that far off. Excellent.
  • Football Jabber takes a look at some of the changes on the NFL Draft scene with thoughts on how the draft might evolve next weekend.
  • Advanced NFL Stats looks at defensive backs drafted between 1980 and 2001 and considers whether or not top draft picks outperform those DBs taken in later rounds in Drafting Defensive Backs. Love this kind of historical analysis.
  • Being totally into fantasy football and also a wife, you can see why I couldn't help but click on the Bruno Boys' My Wife and Fantasy Football, Good Idea? article (and was then amused to see myself mentioned in the article as the token female FFer; always happy to play that role) - I think the number of women playing fantasy football has grown significantly over the past 2-3 years thanks in large part to the explosion of significant other/mom leagues as noted here.
  • The Texans are a team that provide fairly consistent fantasy stats across multiple positions for us fantasy footballers - the trifecta of Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson and Steve Slaton is just such a tantalizing prospect as we look ahead to the 2009 season. See what The Sports Outlaw has to say in Houston Texans Off Season Thoughts and the types of team needs they might fill come draft day.
All for now - enjoy the weekend!

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
