New contest winner + new site!

It's that time of the week, friends. Time to announce the Preseason Week 2 contest winner...last week I asked for guesses at the receiver with the most receiving yards during the preseason week 2 games. And we've got a winner: Larry Dalton (aka RapidBucFan of Conference 2 in the FFLibrarian League). Congrats on targeting the right wide receiver for this week's contest, Larry! Larry suggested that Troy Williamson would bring in 98 yards this past week and while he underestimated Williamson ever so slightly, Williamson was the lead receiver this week with 147 yards. Larry's prize is a season-long subscription to FFXtreme and all its many tools and wiley ways to keep you at the top of your league.

For the preseason week 3 games, I'm looking for guesses at the quarterback with the most passing yards - if you're interested in winning your own FFXtreme subscription, e-mail me with your QB guess and the number of passing yards you think he'll have. I'm only looking at passing yards so don't worry about sending QB rushing yards or TDs.

In the meantime, I have a new site to send your way - and it's pretty awesome. Check out The Lead Pipe Lock and its "omatic fantasy prognosticator" machine. Two of my favorite articles here are the Rough Starts/Best Starts for both WRs and RBs. Of course if you're in the mood for sleepers, look no further than the omatic's 2009 sleepers.


Adding to the list of sleepers I just drafted in my 18 team league. Chris Henry went way late and with the way he is playing versus the way Coles is playing Henry could possibly unseat Coles for the starting job. But even he doesn't Henry will post great numbers this year.

Is there anything sexier than a chick who can talk FF like this?...

Henry is popular, but don't go too early regardless of what you see on HBO. Remember your friends watch Hard Knocks too.

All kidding aside, Henry has a few tough matchups against Chris Carr twice, Stanford Routt and Antoine Cason. NO rookie matchups or easy ones all season. Unless he changes positions or even in an injury situation, he may have value. Let him fall to you in the late rounds and hope he doesn't beat up a mascot or something and ruin yet another chance.

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
