Oh yeah, Week 1 start/sit!

Happy Labor Day! Hopefully you all are doing something fun today, enjoying a day off. Personally I just slept in later than I have in months, possibly years, and it was awesome. Is there something in the air here? Seriously I sleep in so much later in NYC than in Boulder...though I think that might be related to the later nights, here too. So speaking of Boulder, who watched the CU vs CSU game last night? I got a little nostalgic looking at the beautiful flatiron/foothills shots - made me miss my old hometown! Tough times for the Buffs last night - not a good way to start the season. But who started the season well? Northwestern! My alma mater beat Towson pretty thoroughly this weekend; let's hope that keeps up.

All that said, there is no day off when it comes to fantasy football so read up on the latest links and reads in FF land.
  • Find out who Ultimate FF Strategy thinks will be the Top 10 WRs Based on historical Trends - interesting stuff here as usual. If they're right about Brandon Marshall, there could be some teams who grabbed him at an excellent value.
  • Cut day has come and gone - Rotoworld is Looking at cut day from a fantasy perspective. Gotta say I'm surprised that Jeff Garcia was cut but I haven't really been following him in any depth for awhile. Perhaps I assumed that Russell was just that bad. Either way, don't go there on draft day, waiver day, any day.
  • MMQB reviews some of the big cuts this weekend, too, and the usual bevy of other football topics.
  • You guys know even the slightest bit of statistical analysis makes me happy so I enjoyed ESPN's What to make of Rams' run on turnovers - a quick check on the correlation between preseason and regular season turnovers reveals that the Rams might not be turning over a new leaf after all. But hey, you never know...
  • Fantazzle's rankings are all up and complete - remember Fantazzle won my accuracy challenge last year where I compared a lot of the big dogs out there to see which ranking was the most accurate. Might be worth seeing what Fantazzle has to say this year.
  • FFManiaxs already have waiver wire advice up - plus of course start/sit for Week 1.
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru gives us a list of guys that he's avoiding this season.
  • Finally, the Lead Pipe Lock's Omatic spits out Week 1 Top 10 Starters by Position. Gotta say I like this - there aren't a ton of weekly rankings out there like this so I think I'm going to enjoy tracking the Omatic this season to see how well it does.
Over the next several days I'll be gathering positional rankings for the ranking of the rankings contest (done in conjunction with the FSTA) that I mentioned above. If you have a favorite site that you'd like included in the competition (or if you're an expert who wants to know how you stack up!), let me know and I'll see what I can do to get them involved. For results from last year, click here. And 2007, click here.

Finally, if you've sent me an e-mail and I haven't gotten back to you yet, my apologies. I am embarrassingly far behind on my e-mail but I will eventually get to them all - promise!

Fantazzle's rankings are just now complete? No wonder they won overall accuracy last year. Their rankings are published so late that they're useless to 95% of fantasy drafters. Most major rankings are published at least a month or two earlier (and perhaps updated once). Things change.

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
