Late July links

What's happenin' fantasy fans? I've got a fun day ahead: the culmination of a big work project I've been working on for months followed by a bit of a goodbye party for me at the library. I'm not big on being the center of attention (as is obvious by the deep red blush I inevitably take on) but I do love a party...

How'd your draft go?? Or is it not over yet? I hope you share, although I'd understand if you don't. I'm sure your ff opponents in your league might steal some of your apparent targets with that info.

On TO, I agree that he's had nice impact everytime he goes to a new team, but I don't see it happening as much this year. Edwards is no Romo or McNabb (or even Garcia), and TO is getting up there in years. He keeps himself in great shape, sure, but that won't work forever. I think Evans will benefit greatly from TO's presence, but I'd be very cautious about reaching for Owens.

Enjoy your party!
Here's my draft update (it's being done slow, e-mail style):
1.01 Maurice Jones-Drew
2.12 Clinton Portis
3.01 Dwayne Bowe

PPR league makes Bowe really appealing though I don't know how I feel about having him as my top WR; makes me a little uneasy. Love the value of Clinton Portis at the end of the 2nd. No QBs had gone yet so Brees was tempting but I just don't usually go QB so early...

I think looking at strength of schedule is pointless. Since it is difficult to predict year to year which teams/defenses will be good/bad year to year, looking at a teams' schedule to determine potential results is flawed.

If Terrell Owens is the 6th best wide receiver in fantasy football this year, it will be an amazing accomplishment, and a huge career turnaround for an aging receiver.
Last season, Terrell Owens was lined up in the slot BEHIND other Cowboy's receivers in order to help break the jam.
Owens has never been a burner, and if his strength is gone, he becomes a shell of his former self. He is a guy worth gambling on, on the chance of a late career revival, but it is a gamble, unworthy of being dubbed the 6th best WR in football.

Portis at the end of 2 is nice.

I like Bowe as a WR1 in a PPR league. I think you've got a very nice draft going. Good job resisting Brees. Someone else will take him and other QBs sending increased value at RB/WR your way for the 4/5 turn.

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
