Start spreading the news...

Well my fantasy football friends, it's finally official: I'm moving to New York City this summer. I've got lots to do before I move and I'll likely be in transit in early August (don't worry, the FF posts will keep on coming!) but the good news here is that barring a miracle I'll be jobless when I first arrive in New York meaning this blog will be overwhelmed by my posts. Seriously. I won't have anything to do other than explore NYC and post to the blog so prepare yourselves for lots of info. It should be awesome. I'm thinking of having some sort of FFLibrarian happy hour in the city once I've settled in but we'll see - one friend thinks that might just be a big nerdfest but I have more faith in you all.

  • It's rare that you actually see a fantasy expert plead with the public to avoid drafting a player...but such is the case with Rotoworld and Visanthe Shiancoe in Shiancoe is a No-Go in '09. I should take a moment to note that Rotoworld/Pancake Blocks is doing an incredible job of keeping the relevant fantasy football content coming - without them I'd have a lot less interesting articles to link to, so show them a little gratitude I say and give 'em some traffic.
  • Fantasy Sharks has the first of three articles intended for keeper leagues - this time they take a look at Keeper League Top Quarterbacks that are most likely to be available in keeper leagues.
  • Sleeper talk: see why Rotoworld and Football Outsiders are digging Jerome Harrison so much this season.
  • Lester's Legends brings us the Rotoprofessor's Top 10 Fantasy Football RB Rankings.
  • Where to rank Tony Romo now that T.O. has left for Buffalo...see Fantasy Football Fools' article Without T.O., is Romo still an elite fantasy quarterback?
  • Sigh. This year the 30-year-old RB discussion kind of hits FFXtreme calls it, "the age of decline" is rapidly approaching for me with my 30th birthday just a week or two away. Frankly I can't believe that LT and I are the same age; leaves me with the feeling of a lot left to accomplish, no? Anyway, see what FFXtreme has pulled together in Thirty-Year-Old Running Backs: The Age of Decline.
All for now - enjoy the weekend!

Worst Top Ten Fantasy Running Back picks that I've seen yet.
Clearly, this guy (Rotoprofessor)has no clue. Frank Gore and Ryan Grant ahead of Matt Forte? Well, everyone has an opinion, but I sure wouldn't ever follow this guy.

Good luck with your move and thanks for the linkage. Does this mean you'll have to choose sides between the Giants and the Jets (while not forgetting the Broncos, of course)?

For fantasy football librarians, thirty is the age of ascent.

Good to hear feedback on the links, John, thanks. I like to make sure a variety of opinions are heard but ultimately it's primo content that I'm interested in providing.

Jacob, I guess I might have to pick a NY team but frankly it's all about the Broncos.

And Brian, I like your mindset. Age of ascent, here I come.

congrats on the move! and you don't need to pick a NY team. plenty of transplants here that never adopt a new jersey team. and there is probably a Broncos bar or two.

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
