BWW league and top links

I played tourist for awhile yesterday and roamed the Times Square area (I know at least one reader will be glad to know that I did indeed see the naked cowboy) and I'm thinking of getting in touch with my inner tourist even more and cruising around Manhattan in one of those tour boats later this week.

But today I have a draft for an experts IDP league led by the CBS Sports crew. It was a fun league last year though the draft is 29 rounds long. Yes. 29.

However my big announcement for the day is that I am a part of the Buffalo Wild Wings Fantasy Football All-Star Blogger League. The league winner will win a trip to Miami during the Super Bowl so you can imagine that I'm gunning to win. The league commish is ESPN's Trey Wingo and there are all sorts of savvy experts in the league with me. We'll all be blogging throughout the season so stay updated via the league's homepage - and wish me luck! If you're a NYC local I believe I might just be drafting live from my local Brooklyn Buffalo Wild Wings next week and could always use some reader encouragement during the draft. Details to be determined.

Enough on my league life, let's delve into today's best links:
  • What's better than a little live Q&A with a fantasy expert or two? Tune into the Bruno Boys Live Q&A tonight at 8:00 PM eastern.
  • Speaking of the Bruno Boys, my weekly column with them should be up later today - I look at a few really late flier picks that you might want to grab in the last couple of rounds of your draft.
  • I'm trying out a new site - let me know what you think. Numbers and Guts has some overvalued players and some sleepers for us. Take a look.
  • Dwayne Bowe is a second-string receiver. How long will that last? And how far is he falling in drafts with the news of Cassel's injury?
  • Ultimate FF Strategy does some narrowing down of breakout WRs listed in an earlier article this summer. See which guys they find most promising this season.
  • Matthew Berry tackles his mailbag with answers to questions about those who should not be drafted, those who should be kept, and those whose cats are benefiting from TMR's advice (hey, I'm an animal person, mention a cat in a column and you've caught my eye).
  • Something to ponder in Rotoworld's Kurt Warner and QBs that lose in the Super Bowl.
  • If you're trying to get a grasp on the most consistent WRs - or the most unpredictable - as you prepare for your draft, take a look at's WR Consistency article for a look back at the past few seasons.

Re: WR consistency (FantasySharks)

If you are a non-PPR league, be careful when using averages. Average points per game can be very misleading when trying to figure out how reliable your WR is. My league is a non-PPR league and relies on actual scoring. So, the stat I use for consistency is the number of games a WR does not score over the course of a season (includes missed and non-scoring games). You could use the number of games they score in instead. I also track Average points per game played, total points, standard deviation and 95% confidence levels. The points I use are calculated from my league's scoring system. All those stats are easy to calculate and track/graph in a spreadsheet. They can help you break ties between players in each of the tiers you have put your WRs into.

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
