Rolling out more Week 4 links

In a few hours I'll be hanging with college buddies and sipping cocktails at a Northwestern alum event here in NYC, but until then I still have several more links for you, my loyal readers.
Finally, an update on the FFLibrarian weekly contest as promised - the big winner of the week was Zrayed and you can see the winning roster and other top teams in the image below. Nicely done Zrayed!

Hey FF Librarian!!
First of all your awesome and we here in Brooklyn really appreciate all the work you do for us fantasy freaks. Secondly, I'm being offered Brandon Jacobs and Megatron, for LT and Colston.
Is this a no-brainer? Or should I be analyzing all the potential upside that LT could bring.

Where do you find your stats on targets? I have been looking forever on the intertubes!?! Im curious to if I should pick up Kelly or Nate Washington.
Thanks Anon! Love knowing there are folks here in my new neighborhood that are reading my blog. As for the trade offer, that's a tough one for me. I think I'd make the deal.

Colston has been a pretty solid WR1 (esp in Weeks 1 & 2) but he will be facing some tough pass defenses in the next few matchups, and LT has a lot of question marks - combined I think that just makes the trade a good one for you. Jacobs (who has a sweet schedule) and Megatron (seeing lots of targets, shouldn't be long before he really meshes with Stafford) are probably the better deal here.

Peacock, I pulled the target data from the CBSSports league that I am in, but you can also get that data from Sports Data Hub ( - select "receiving targets" as your offensive stat.

But here's the info you're really looking for: Kelly Washington has been targeted 13 times (and caught 12 of them!) while Nate Washington has been targeted 19 times (7 catches) but he wasn't fully healthy or in the starting lineup in Week 1. Kelly is Q right now with a groin injury so I think I'd be inclined to go with Nate.

Thats exactly what I was thinking....I really like the looks Kelly is getting, but Nate was traded to be a #1....I think he will be more of an asset to my team, rather than a WR3, that is in an offense where Flacco spreads the ball a ton....I see Nate with the bigger upside personally, which is why I agree I have to take him over Kelly. Thanks for all the help! Love your blog.

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
