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.
- First up, my weekly column with the Bruno Boys: Top 10 Receivers After Week 3. This week I look at top receivers by yardage and receptions and the types of pass defenses they've faced so far - and then who they will meet in the next several weeks.
- The Lead Pipe Lock has something along the same vein - the easiest matchups for each skill position through Week 3. He then also lists players that you'd want to target. Nice stuff!
- Want to play against a celebrity? Try Richard Petty this week in Best Buy's Weekly Football Challenge.
- A few start and sit links for you:
- Fighting Chance Fantasy's Who to Start, Who to Sit - Week 4
- WalterFootball.com's Start Em, Sit Em: Week 4
- FantasySharks.com's Start/Bench List Week 4
- FFToolbox's Week 4: Start 'Em
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!

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.
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 (http://analyze.sportsdatahub.com/stats/basic/PlayerStatistics.aspx) - 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.
