Minicamp updates and other fantasy headlines

I think this might be the longest I have ever gone without putting up a post - my apologies and I hope you all haven't been missing your football links too much! I wrapped up an awesome weekend with family and my husband and I are now in Moab, Utah with some friends. Tomorrow morning we're waking up early for a day hike in The Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. The topography here is just unreal - good stuff. 

I'll be back with my regular postings later this week, but in the meantime, here are a few links to keep you happy...
  • CBS Sports has some advice on which veteran football players you're going to want to consider come fantasy draft day in The new value of some fantasy veterans - take a look at which guys will shine, which will disappoint and which surprise.
  • Tony Gonzalez seems to fit right into the Atlanta offense - will Gonzo's value take a hit after all in fantasy drafts?? I'm feeling the start of an overrated value run on Gonzo; not that he'll have a bad season, just that he likely won't repeat 2008's numbers and yet the Ryan to Gonzo hype is building already...
  • Check out The Hazean's Monday Morning Rehab post for the latest injury updates on guys like  LT, Devin Thomas (I'm kind of intrigued by this guy...) and Derrick Mason.
  • The Rotoworld guys keep the Tough to Rank series cranking, this time with a write-up on the Seattle running game. Where do Julius Jones and T.J. Duckett fit in? Could Julius Jones in particular be a great value pick this year?
  • Sports Grumblings' The Dark Side enters the 2009 season with a look at players to target this year (and beyond) and players to avoid - all with an extra dose of humor.  
  • Finally, I've found myself looking for depth charts quite a bit lately and I highly recommend scoping out FFToolbox's 2009 NFL Depth Charts for Fantasy Football in case you're looking for a good resource.

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
