Dawning of Week 4 advice

Greetings and welcome to Week 4 prep. I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's games as much as I did. I think I'll go 6-3 in my 9 leagues this week - I'll take that! Best of all is another win in the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League. I'll be going 3-0 and am hoping to keep my claim to the #1 spot in the league...I'll be sure to brag about being one step closer to winning the league (and subsequent trip to Miami and party with Trey Wingo) on the BWW site once the win is official. Thank you, Aaron Rodgers, for returning to fantasy awesomeness; not sure I could have done it without you.

Now to today's links...
  • Speaking of fantasy awesomeness and lack thereof...oh, Laurent Robinson. I talked up your potential to friends and readers alike and now you've got an ankle injury (update - Robinson's injury more serious than originally thought, he might be out for the rest of the year). So unfortunate. But really, truly unfortunate for the Rams. What a mess. 
  • I am going to relish my 3-0 Broncos while I's about to get ugly in Denver, my friends. Rough schedule ahead. But that said, nice work, Buckhalter and Moreno. For some thoughts on players that are On the Rise, On the Fall, take a look at
  • The Hazean has some Early Waiver Wire Thoughts up - right now I'm feeling sorry for my father-in-law who dropped Glen Coffee already...and now has an uphill waiver wire battle to get him back.
  • More waiver wire advice from the FootballDocs. Love how quickly these guys get waiver suggestions up - and they don't sacrifice quantity or quality to do it - it's awesome.
  • Another place for solid waiver advice: ProFootballWeekly's Fantasy Ticker: Week 4 or AOL Fanhouse's Waiver Wire Wonders.
  • This should be of interest for future weeks - the Lead Pipe Lock used KC Joyner's rankings to put together Cornerback and Safety Rankings with notes on which matchups are easy, moderate, or tough and what that means for your WRs, TEs, and QBs. 
  • Again on the IDP front, if you're thinking of picking up some new defenders, see what Monk has to say in Week 4 NFL Fantasy Football 2009 Waiver Wire Pick Ups.
  • This week's MMQB, Palmer, Favre and an unsung receiver added to Week 3 drama made me think a bit more about the Bengals. There are lots of you out there who thought this was the Bengals year to shine and a 23-20 win against the reigning SB champs certainly sounds good. But did this game say more about the 2-1 Bengals (who beat the Packers and the Steelers - and lost to my Broncos!) or the 1-2 Steelers (who have lost to the Bears and Bengals but beat the Titans in OT)??
  • Last year I blogged on the Fifth Down about watching the movie 10 Yards - it's now viewable on YouTube so if you've got some time, take a look and enjoy.
Finally, I recently heard about a member of who is walking in the Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk and could use a little assistance with donations. I don't usually do this (so don't worry, I won't pepper the site with future donation requests) but if you're feeling like you've got a few extra bucks on hand, why not support a fantasy footballer who is dedicated to raising money to fight cancer?


Broncos 3-0. I bet you're psyched. The only newcomer I'm more impressed with than Josh McDaniels right now is Mark Sanchez. also weighed in on who to grab on the waiver wire, and who to leave be at

BWW = fab, because it's based in the TC and has a female CEO. If you win, you should go to Miami AND get a visit to corporate so you can come say hi! :)

Thank you very much for helping to spread the word on the Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk.

Continued good luck on the BWW All Star blogger league!

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
