Afternoon links & contest updates

Come and get your fantasy love here, friends. I'm in a great mood - just finished up an interview with Melissa from The Football Girl (the podcast will be up in the next few days) and spent basically the whole day at a spa by accident. Well kind of by accident. I was getting my hair cut and my stylist ended up needing to leave in the middle due to a family emergency - while I really didn't mind (family comes first and far, far before hair cuts), the salon bent over backwards to make me feel like a valued new customer and I ended up with a facial, hand massage, a goodie bag of lotions, and the best stylist in the salon to finish up. Trust me, it was good. You ladies out there in Brooklyn (and dudes who like nice a coiffure) who need a new salon, just drop me a line and I'll send along their name.

Anyway, all of this makes me want to put a few more fantasy links up - and of course update you on the FFLibrarian weekly contests. So links first, contest news second:

  • 12StepDrop's Contentious Starts and Sits: Week 7
  • FFManiaxs' Week 7 Start/Sit
  • Pyromaniac's Start 'Em Sit 'Em (new link, would love to know what you all think)
  • The top 5 scorers in all 6 conferences of the monster 96-team FFLibrarian league are:
    • Vick's Cellmate - 165.50 points
    • Beltway Bandits - 160.75 points
    • The Sugar Bakers - 156 points
    • Dangerous Beans - 151.15 points
    • Sweet Thunder - 149.50 points
  • And for the first time this season, one player has won both of my weekly contests with garywink - congrats Gary! His winning roster in the main pick 2 contest is pasted below. Remember, you can jump into this league any time - the password this week is book7 and here's a good starting point if you haven't participated yet. I've got the pick 2 contest and a salary cap contest up this week; play in one, play in both!

The Pyromaniacs site wasn't too bad. Kind of more of the same compared to all the other sites, but it never hurts to have one more voice that may, at some point, have some useful information.

Got a question while I'm at it. In a league where it costs $5 per move, do you think that it's worth it to make either of these moves:

Drop Devin Hester for Sidney Rice (I have Boldin, Breaston, Colston, Calvin Johnson, Hester)


Drop McCoy for Jonathan Stewart or Maroney (I have Forte, Jacobs, Kevin Smith, Ricky Williams, McCoy)?

Ya 2nd highest scorer in the league! Too bad my team's record isn't showing it.

Anon - $5 a move. Wow. I'll try and be cautious here with my advice. Hester has better matchups for the remainder of the season so I think I'd stay put on that one. The RB one is a bit harder for me. I love Maroney's fantasy playoffs schedule and the fact that he's moving on up with the injuries in NE, so I think I would make the switch from McCoy to Maroney. Maroney might only put up good numbers for a few more weeks until Taylor and/or Morris returns, but Westy is looking good enough to keep McCoy limited to 5-10 carries a game. Just not enough. Good luck!

Nicely done, dmbosstone!
