Word around fantasyland

I've been traveling a lot over the past week so I've been trying to answer a few e-mails from the road and have noticed that my iPhone inexplicably no longer seems to recognize my name, Sara, as a real word. It keeps trying to auto-correct my name - first it tried "data" (which perhaps would've confused my mom if I had signed my e-mails "love, data") and then it went with SARS (even better: "love, SARS"). Gotta love smart technology, right?

Anyway, I'm back from vacation (see the photo to the left that shows one of the many awesome views we saw while hiking in Canyonlands NP) and gearing up for a work conference in Anaheim next week - a coworker and I are hitting up Disneyland one night; haven't been since I was a kid. Will it still be fun?? I'm hoping to keep my blogging up but if I'm quiet again next week, blame it on the library conference.
  • So much to learn when you ready Fantasy Sharks' Fantasy News: Special Dynasty Edition, like Chris Johnson's desire to be the NFL MVP and Visanthe Shiancoe's 3% body fat.
  • Dustin Keller is sounding like a better value grab at TE every week - see what Rotoworld has to say about which receiver will have the biggest impact for the Jets in Clowney starting but Keller is Jets' real No. 2.
  • FFToolbox is posting all sorts of awesome stuff this week - I'm digging the early 2009 cheat sheets with position rankings but am also excited to the the ADP (average draft position) info from up. Good stuff.
  • DR U Fantasy Football Guru does a nice job with their player profiles (with a new one posted each day) - check out this profile on Reggie Bush; you get the upside, downside and bottom line of adding him to your fantasy roster.
  • See how Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy did with their prognosis on last year's overvalued players in A Look Back at Our 2008 Top 10 Overvalued Players. They compared how a player did to his preseason ADP to determine if they were right or wrong about some risky players.
  • Take a look at a new site called Fantasy Football Chatter brought to you by the same guys behind Fantasy Football Calculator. I like the way it draws headlines from a variety of sources - blogs, newspapers, big dogs like ESPN and SI, and smaller sites with a focused football expertise. Seems like a great new way to stay hip to headlines if you ask me...

Thanks for mentioning FFChatter. Hope it can help you hear about fantasy news this season.

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
