The FFL league and lots o' linking

I'm digging all of the positive feedback I've seen in the comments and e-mails from those of you who want to be part of the FFLibrarian league. So I know this might disappoint some of you but I think the best way to organize this many interested people might be to do a weekly contest format rather than a season-long format. That way those of you who can't commit during part of the season, or those who just get into it late, can still participate. I would absolutely report on the winner each week and you'd be awarded a prize or two. I'm thinking it will still be a lot of fun even though it won't involve some of the more complex FF thinking like waiver wires and trades...what do you think? And if some of you want to be in a league together in an unofficial FFLibrarian league I can certainly arrange that for you and act as a collector of interested names/e-mails.

But enough on future leagues and on to links:
  • ESPN's projections are up. We're talking 500+ player projections. That's massive. I swear this happens earlier every year but no complaints from me!
  • Rotoworld's dynasty rankings series continues with thoughts on tight ends. I of course immediately looked for Tony Scheffler, my favorite, and am bummed to see him slip to Tier 4. Oh Scheff. Things looked so bright a year ago!
  • I know some anxious Marion Barber dynasty owners who are wondering what will happen to Barber this season. Gregg Rosenthal has taken a look at some 2008 Cowboys coverage in his spare time to help answer the burning question: Will Barber get the red zone touches?
  • I've got sleepers for you. Who doesn't love a sleepers article? And if you don't, you're at least a little curious are you not? FFToolbox has their 2009 Fantasy Football Sleepers up. I like the Earl Bennett call but I think one of the reasons Bennett and Cutler are jiving could be thanks to their Vanderbilt connection (Bennett's freshman year - with Cutler at the helm - he had 79 receptions for 870+ yards and 9 TDs) . Throw in Chris Williams (OT) and it's a total Vandy-fest in Chi-town.

maybe you could do twelve contest or something and have 12 spots in a league and whoever wins those spots gets to be in the league next year? or maybe you could do something with the preseason to determine the spots? I'm cool with the weekly thing though. you could do both! just some thoughts!

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
