Week 2 Start and Sit Galore!

Had an awesome day yesterday - basically hung out in my old library, catching up with friends and talking to coworkers about a few ongoing papers and projects. I've only been gone for about 7 weeks but it's amazing how many little things have changed since then. Ahh, the ever-changing world of libraries. But I know you all aren't here to listen to my library rants so let's get down to business here...

There are quite a few more start/sit links - remember that I'll be pulling together a consensus start/sit from all of the different sites I link to this week. I'll try to get that up by tomorrow, but Sunday morning at the latest.
Other great reads:
  • Week 2: Busts of the Week from FFToolbox - kind of a sit list I suppose but who on earth is sitting Drew Brees?? I'll call this more of an FYI or owner beware kind of list.
  • Also kind of in the start/sit realm is Lead Pipe Lock's Week Two Top Twelve Starters by Position - some sleeper thoughts are thrown in, too.
  • I love that Hatty Waiver Wire Guru covers so many bases - tons of material on his site, but I'll focus on the IDP column for now: Week 2 Players to Target
  • FFToday's Inside the Matchup: Week 2 player projections and game thoughts listed by matchup.
  • Some experts got together for a roundtable discussion on Rotoprofessor on which mid-round players you drafted that can safely be cut. Great read from a lot of impressive fantasy minds.
  • And in fact, the roundtable of experts idea is quite popular - take a look at this one with Sleepers and Busts for Week 2 from RapidDraft. 
  • If you're looking for rankings, no better place to go than KFFL - this link will take you to their WRs but all position rankings can be found off of that page. 
  • I grew up in northern Virginia so I'm a big Washington Post reader - inexplicably I've somehow missed their FF blog, Fantasy Check, and let me tell you, it's good stuff. I'm particularly digging their Projection vs. Production series and am sure to be linking back to that each week. Highly recommend reading this blog, especially you Skins fans.

I just realized the ridiculous number of links I've provided here - there is just SO much good stuff out there right now. I'm really impressed by the fantasy content I'm seeing these days and perhaps what I like the most are the articles that bring more than just one opinion - so the roundtables, the Fantasy Check blog, the melding of many thoughts into one. Is that a surprise though considering that's what I do all day here on FFLibrarian? Still, I love it. Keep bringing the good stuff, FF experts!

I have Fred Jackson (BUF), Thomas Jones (NYJ) and Michael Turner (ATL) in my lineup this weekend with Larry Johnson (KC) on the bench. I 'm thinking about putting in Johnson for Jones. What do you think?
I'd go with T. Jones all day against the Pats. Have you seen that defensive line? Without Mayo, it's essentially non-existent against the run.

On another note, Lead Pipe Lock is one of the most interesting - and almost surreal - FF sites I've ever seen. I'm dying to see the Omatic in action after next week.

Trying to decide between:
Eddie Royal (DEN) - CLE
Hines Ward (PIT) - @CHI
Justin Gage (TEN) - HOU
Cadillac Williams (TB) - @BUF
Julius Jones (SEA) - @SF

to fill my last WR and my WR/RB slot. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
Click, I think you've got some awesome options. I absolutely agree with Matthew that Thomas Jones will have a good game against the Pats. While I might be slightly concerned about the amount of carries that Washington could take away, Jones still makes for a better option than LJ. Love both Jackson and Turner this week - nicely done!

Alex, I've got some serious love for Gage and love my Broncos, so it's hard for me not to recommend either Gage or Royal this week but I think I'd go with Ward and Williams. Williams is almost guaranteed a TD, which makes me a must-start in my book - and Ward had such a spectacular showing last week against a tough Titans D, that I imagine he'll look pretty strong against Chicago this week.

Thanks to hours of draft prep via your fantastic blog I managed to land these players in my GOLD league:

Tony Romo
Michael Turner
Thomas Jones
Fred Jackson
Reggie Wayne
Calvin Johnson
John Carlson
Robbie Gould
Jets Defense

Bench: Larry Johnson, Matt Cassel, Jason Campbell, Beanie Wells, Donnie Avery

I couldn't believe it! It was almost like taking candy from a baby! Check this... Someone in my league had the audacity to pick Gostkowski in ROUND 1!! Another person picked up BenJarvus Green-Ellis in ROUND 1! I couldn't believe what I was seeing!

Anyways... Thanks for providing us with this hidden hot spot for up to date fantasy links. You're doing us a great favor. TTYL

I'm looking for a flex behind Jacobs and McFadden. I drafted Slaton for my RB2 but my matchups tell me to put in the two other backs with better matchups.

On my bench I have K. Moreno and P Crayton.

Should I be swapping out Slaton for Moreno or possibly Crayton?

I am in a PPR league. My starting RBs are Barber and D. Williams, but I have Thomas Jones and Fred Jackson also on the bench. I can start one flex player, and am toying with leaving Barber on the pine this week because of his history against the Giants (and because both Jones and Jackson have great matchups). Thoughts?
Great Links.

Don't forget to stop on by .
They have waiver wire, survivor pool picks, start em / sit em, player rankings and point spread picks.

I'm having trouble deciding whether to start Jermichael Finley(GBP) or John Carlson(SEA) at TE, and Santonio Holmes(PIT) or Devin Hester(CHI) at WR this week. Do you have any advise? Thanks
Token - I'd go Finley with his great matchup and I like Holmes better than Hester.

Good luck!

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
