FFLibrarian League update and other links

Greetings from a gray and rainy Colorado. We live a few blocks away from a mini golf place (yup, I can sense how jealous you all are) so last night as part of my husband's birthday celebrations we played 18 holes with a bunch of friends. Unfortunately, a massive summer storm including hail came rolling in while we were on hole 8 or so. This stopped those of us who prefer to remain unhailed upon (while holding a metal putter in the lightning of course), but my husband and 5 other guys were undeterred and it quickly evolved into all-weather, all-terrain putt putt. Rarely have I seen a bunch of 30-somethings so completely gleeful in the rain - it was amusing. Anyway, the clouds remain today but I'm kind of digging the mellow weather.

I'm also digging today's fantasy football links, which are as follows:
  • The Hazean provides a nice library of links in 27 resources to help fantasy football owners win this year. If any of these links are new for you, I definitely recommend you check them out since the Hazean hit upon a lot of the gems out there.
  • Yahoo's RotoArcade is posting their Juggernaut Index, which is a fantasy ranking of all 32 NFL Teams starting with the Oakland Raiders at 32nd.
  • Can you believe there are 11 teams with new head coaches? Wow. Read up on what that means for the fantasy world in's Diner morning news: First-year coaches.
  • Football Outsiders continue their series on Wisdom of the Crowds with their second installment of WR projections - scope it out for the latest thoughts on guys like Mark Clayton and Randy Moss.
  • FantasySharks offer up some value picks for the 2009 season - I think I'm becoming a big Ryan Grant believer. Think I'm nuts? The more I ponder the GB offense and Grant's history, the more I become a believer. No, I won't draft him as my RB1 but he might have some great RB1-ish weeks...
  • Every once in a great while I come across a non-free resource that I just must link to here - I prefer to lead you all down the great path of freely available resources but sometimes there's just something too good to pass up. That's how I feel about John Tuvey's offensive line analysis on The Huddle - it is the cream of the crop and if you're a o-line type, I highly recommend getting your hands on this. That means becoming a Huddle member but frankly, the Huddle is a sweet site and worth the cost if you're willing to pony up a few bucks.
Finally, if you're in the FFLibrarian League we've had to change our draft plans from a live draft to an e-mail draft. Please be sure to read the latest on the league message board - the e-mail drafts will begin on August 24 to be wrapped up before the first game of the season.

Even more exciting during a storm would be the human maze.

The Shark said something about Reggie Bush doing nothing but finding the end zone. Twenty TDs in three seasons for a guy with some several hundred looks is not a guy that is very efficient at finding the end zone. I love Reggie Bush as an RB 1/2 in a PPR league, but he is definetly not a TD machine.

I love the call on T.J Houshamazilli, I think he and Hasselback could make for a great feedback loop in Seattle this year.

I agree with you on Grant whole heartedly and I'm a Bears fan! Just seems like a perfect scenario for him to have a great 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
