The start of baseball brings football a bit closer...

Well baseball season has begun, which in my football-oriented mind means that football season is that much closer to being here, and I for one an psyched. Another thing I'm psyched about this week is that my husband is defending his dissertation tomorrow - soon I can call him Doc Holladay. Six years of hard work are about to be rewarded. Can't wait.

Onto to today's football linkage:
  • Want a little light reading before Draft Day arrives? Then don't turn to FootballGuys' 624-page beastly Rookie Scouting Portfolio (for a free 75-page sample, check out this link); but if you want something informative and detailed from one of my favorite fantasy football writers, check out Matt Waldman's aforementioned tome.
  • Ahh, to have a mature quarterback. Jason Campbell and Dan Snyder met at the end of last week for a pow-wow on the same day that the Skins brought Byron Leftwich in for a workout. Though the Washington Post points out it's unlikely that Leftwich will leave Pittsburgh to be Campbell's backup, which is what he would be should he sign.
  • Looking for a new drafting strategy for the 2009 season? Or maybe just a refresher? Take a look at the Bruno Boys' four-part series designed to give you a leg up come August.
  • If you're really not the sort to keep an eye on the wire for any football news (my fave is still Rotoworld's NFL Headlines), then consider scoping out FFToolbox's 2009 NFL Player Movement guide to keep you updated on all the latest.
  • Now that Plax has been released by the Giants, The Hazean investigates the impact on the Giants' passing game and Eli Manning's value.
  • And finally, since I can't seem to get a post up without mentioning Jay Cutler's name - see MMQB's How Jay Cutler-Kyle Orton trade went down.

Thanks for the linkage. Glad to see you going strong through the offseason, football cannot get here soon enough!

Thanks again for all your hard work in the off-season. =o)

For what it's worth, a Miami Herald story paraphrases sources at the Dolphins stating that Chad Henne likely to become their starting QB sometime in 2009 or at the latest in the 2010. The Dolphins are looking to replace the efficient Chad Pennington. A battle of the Chad's in Miami at the QB spot.

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
