2009 auction update and other links

I'm a little embarrassed to admit this but I'm in heaven right now - we finally have wireless (and cable) and my life has just taken a serious turn for the better. At the risk of sounding like a future shut-in in the making, I couldn't be happier to be able to sit on my couch and write this post. Sure, I miss out on some of the crazies at the local coffee shop but I think I'm about to be so much more productive.

So on that note, let's dive right in to today's headlines!
  • FFToday takes a pretty solid stab at some Below the Radar - Sleepers. I feel like each of us might have our own take on what "sleeper" really means but this article does a pretty good job of locating later round players that could be real gems.
  • Looking for team defense rankings? See what the Bruno Boys have to say in 2009 Fantasy Football Defensive Rankings.
  • For those of you who are in the mood to take a quiz and test your FF knowledge, try Athlon/Grogan's 2009 Fantasy Quiz to see how ready you are to draft. I'll be honest, it was tough.
  • I know a bunch of you are big proponents of auction leagues - I have yet to participate in one but I'll try to get some auction details out your way, like FFToolbox's latest update to their 2009 Fantasy Football Auction Values.
  • I just grabbed Donovan McNabb with the 5.02 pick in a league with no qualms about the addition of Michael Vick. My latest roster update for that league is: 1.02 MJD, 2.11 Marques Colston, 3.02 Anquan Boldin, 4.11 Joseph Addai, 5.02 Donovan McNabb.
  • The cat is out of the bag (I can't help but envision Kramer when I say that...) with Chaz Schilens - he had a pretty solid first preseason game, which of course is not to say that he'll be a fantasy goldmine but he's definitely someone worth thinking about in late rounds.
  • I shied away from grabbing Steve Smith in the recent draft I mentioned above but it seems like I might have been a little too conservative. Smith is back in full pads and seems to be back on track.
Finally, I have an opening in my monster 96-team Fantasy Football Librarian league. Would anyone be interested in taking that spot? You'd have to be up for an e-mail style draft starting on August 24th - check out some of the league details here. The first person to e-mail me has the spot, so get your request in! Update: the spot has been taken but thank you all for your interest!

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
