Starting June off with FF links

Happy June. Busy times here in the library and beyond - I've got all sorts of fun stuff happening this week: consultations with movers, a visit to the dentist, jury duty and a 30th birthday (here's hoping I don't spend my birthday serving out my civic duty). Okay so everything except the birthday could qualify as legitimately un-fun, but to be honest, I love going to the dentist. Yeah, I said it: I love the dentist. Anyway, it's a busy week and I'll do my best to squeeze in the fantasy football when possible. Let's get right to today's links:
  • I'll be the first to admit, this Fifth Down article on Arizona's Surprisingly Efficient Run Blocking was a little unexpected. I pegged the Arizona o-line as needing some serious help so it's interesting to see that really most of the line was pretty decent...a reminder that one cog in the system can throw things off.
  • KFFL has a ranking devised specifically for those of you playing in standard Yahoo! Sports leagues - pretty rad, huh? How do you all feel about Aaron Rodgers at the #2 QB spot, ahead of Peyton and Brady? I'm an Aaron Rodgers fan but that makes me slightly uneasy...
  • Where are the Rams headed next?
  • Rotoworld analyzes why Ronnie Brown might be headed into the 2009 season as an undervalued player.
  • Another guy who might come at a good value? Maroney - see why Fantasy Hulks are digging the Pats RB so late in the draft.
  • What's the deal with the 3rd year breakout WR theory? Ultimate FF Strategy takes a good, long look at recent breakout WRs and at the end of the article there are some 2009 breakout candidates noted. Keep in mind a more detailed article about the 2009ers is still to come.
  • Those who are new to IDP leagues may want to check out Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's Individual Defensive Players Draft Advice piece for a heads-up on where/when/why to take your IDPs.

Aaron Rogers was the 2nd highest scoring player in Yahoo's standard FF league last season, after only Drew Brees among everyone in the NFL. It really should not be a shock he's ranked ahead of Peyton Manning & Tom Brady.

Rogers scored more points than D. Williams, A. Peterson, MJD, and Michael Turner all did individually in the same Yahoo standard FF league last year as well. Their very good reasons he's valued this highly.

Plus the Packers next year have a much better schedule of opponents to face than the Patriots do. Tom Brady is going to have his work cutout for himself. Meanwhile in Indianapolis Peyton Manning lost his HC, OC and the defense lost their DC. Both Brees & Rogers are in better positions overall from a FF point of view IMHO.
Good points, Ryan, and I didn't know he ended up as the 2nd highest scoring by yahoo standards. Very interesting - and most of all, I love seeing a ranking that is in some way different from the masses. Good stuff.

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.

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
