Living like the Cosby family

First and foremost, happy birthday to my brother-in-law today! I was contemplating getting him a Fantasy Football Librarian t-shirt for his birthday but that seemed a bit self-serving to give him a shirt that would just advertise my blog...sorry, Brian. If you really want one (or a mug - I mean who doesn't need a frosted beer mug emblazoned with the FFLibrarian URL?), let me know and I'll make that birthday wish a reality.

I'm back in Colorado after a whirlwind tour of New York City and am very excited to say I now have a home to call my own in NYC come August 1st. Well in Brooklyn Heights to be specific. And frankly the apartment is awesome. I didn't think that was going to be possible; perhaps that's the beauty of Brooklyn?

Now to the beauty of fantasy football:
  • have a nice rookie RB overview in Rookie Running Backs of 09: Who's #1, Sleepers, Dynasty Ranks, Rookie of the Year. This Denver fan is hoping the hype on Moreno is accurate...speaking of which, NYCers, where is the best Broncos bar?? This is very important information! I might need to dedicate myself to a Broncos bar search this fall...
  • If you haven't noticed, Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy is slowly releasing their 2009 offensive line rankings as they do an analysis for each team. Here's a link to their 2009 rankings - so far! And in case you're wondering how they did with their 2008 o-line rankings, take a look here.
  • Can't help but include this one - FFToolbox's Preseason College Football Rankings...where are my Northwestern Wildcats in this top 10 list?? Ha. But really those of you who play fantasy college football might want to start reading up on top teams for the season. If you all are interested in more fantasy college material, let me know in the comments or e-mail me and I'll be sure to keep them coming.
  • Also from FFToolbox, a list of IDP Sleepers for the 2009 season.
  • If it's sleepers you dig, then you'll find yourself quite happy with KFFL's Staff predictions: Top five fantasy football sleepers. Each staff member has taken a shot at their top sleepers of the season. I'm seeing lots of Julius Jones, Laurence Maroney and Donnie Avery...check it out for more detail.
  • Rotoworld provides an overview (one of the first I've seen this preseason!) of the top 10 team defenses and special teams: look no further than the NFC East for your defense this year.
And finally, congrats to the US on a big win over Spain - kudos on a job well done!

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
