More Labor Day greetings and welcome to a new way to compete with your fellow readers here at FFLibrarian! Some of you are part of the 96-team FFLibrarian monster league for the 2009 season but if you're looking for something a little bit shorter term, or just a new and different way to compete, then join me in a new venture with 365fantasysports.com. We'll be doing weekly competitions in a private FFLibrarian community group. In order to play you'll need to register with 365fantasysports via this link and click on the big green "play now" button to register for free. Once you've registered you can search for my league in the contest lobby and use the password book1 to join my league. This first week we're going to do a pretty traditional style competition (pick 2 of each offensive skill position) but in future weeks we'll do fun stuff like an all-RB contest, or just QBs and WRs, or just night NFL games, you get it - unique sorts of contests. Should satisfy those of you looking for something new on the fantasy scene AND those who are just getting their toes wet. So I hope you'll join me - the more the merrier! - and let me know if you have any questions.
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
