Latest news on the fantasy front

The beautiful thing about a conference in California is that 2-hour lunch breaks can be spent by the pool. I'm digging this conference's style and now that I'm done with my presentation here, I can kick back and relax. And post about football. So let's get to today's links...
  • Ultimate Fantasy Football takes a look back at breakout wide receivers from the 2008 season - check out their success rate at predicting the breakouts though I'm not entirely sure I feel like Vincent Jackson was a breakout WR last year. Convince me otherwise if you think he was.
  • Carson Palmer and all Bengals receivers are a huge question mark for the 2009 season - what's going to happen with the Bengals and if Palmer is back to his old self, who stands to benefit? Take a look at Rotoworld's Pancake Blocks blog for some Palmer musings.
  • Those who own Steve Slaton in a dynasty league will be pleased to see that Kubiak is counting on more production out of Slaton this year. I do remain intrigued with Chris Brown - if he's healthy this year, will he take a real chunk of yardage or TDs away from Slaton?
  • Have you heard of Austin Collie yet? If not, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru thinks you should defintiely know the name - this rookie may make a Stokley-like splash in Indy.
  • IDPers, rejoice. Rotoworld has your IDP Rookie Breakdown covered with player reports after the first minicamps. Take a look at the top 30 rookie IDPs out there.
  • The Hazean participated in a short mock draft and has some mocking lessons for all.
  • If you haven't scoped out the team outlooks from FFToolbox yet, definitely take a look. It's a great way to get your mind back on football and remember where each team stands. Some of their latest outlooks have been on the Saints, Jaguars and Ravens.
  • My sister will be as pleased as any of you to hear that Tom Brady is back and looking like his old self. See what has to say about Brady in Tom Brady is 'full go' in Patriots practices.
  • Fantasy Football Maniaxs brings us the top 10 overrated and underrated players of the 2009 season.
All for now - back to library conferencing...

Just a heads up, your Slaton link has a typo.

Keep up the great work!

Don't let your Chargers hatred cloud your Broncos-addled judgment. Vincent Jackson was a top-12 WR in basically every league in America. I'd say that's a breakout.
Thanks Jared, link is fixed...and yes, anon, I do think I have some Broncos-love (not so much Chargers hatred though) that might be clouding my Vincent Jackson 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. 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
