First of the draft guides!

I'm back from a family trip to Michigan and am gearing up for another family weekend - we have 6 of our nearest and dearest coming in this week for my husband's graduation - while also trying to get some finishing touches on our condo before we put it on the market next week. So if my posts are short and sweet this week, don't be surprised since I think my mind is in about ten different places right now. But don't worry, my mind is always on football to some extent...
  • Pigskin Addiction has a little something that those playing in IDP (individual defensive player) leagues might like - a 2009 Top 100 Rookies ranking including IDPs. Good stuff.
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru is starting to crank back into action for the football season - if you found Hatty's advice helpful during the 2008 season and are in the market for dynasty player rankings, then consider buying the premium draft guide that he's preparing for $5. Not a bad price at all for advice from a group of knowledgeable guys. I'm sure there are many, many more draft guides to come so prepare yourselves!
  • I'm a DeAngelo Williams fan - I like what he did in '08 and don't envision the Panthers changing up their backfield a ton after the great success they had. But it's true, he is hard to rank...take a look at Pancake Blocks' Tough to Rank: DeAngelo Williams and voice your opinion on where he should be drafted.
  • I'm also on the LT train this season - I think the guy's 2008 season has scared a few people off, so I can guarantee that he'll come at a bargain (unless you play with someone who hasn't looked at rankings in 2-3 years) and provide you with pretty solid numbers now that he's healthy and running behind a reinforced o-line. Remember, LT's worst season was still 4th best in the AFC. Niiiiiice.
  • Seems to me the news that Kevin Curtis had a second surgery in mid-April will bump up Jeremy Maclin's value a bit. Lots of young receiving talent in Philly with DeSean Jackson and Maclin in the picture...
  • Still in the market for some NFL Draft analysis? Take a look at Ask the's list of best and worst draft picks.

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
