Favorite article of the week & consensus start/sits

Wow. I just watched a heart-breaking loss for the Tennessee Volunteers (and my husband) as their kicker had a 45-yard FG blocked, to lose to top-ranked Alabama. What a disaster for the Vols kicking game today...meanwhile my Northwestern Wildcats narrowly eked out a win against the lowly Indiana Hoosiers. Could've been a bit embarrassing - oh wait, a bit more embarrassing - had we lost. 

Anyway, thought I'd get the consensus start/sit links for Week 7 up - and a few extra links for those looking for one more opinion or one more interesting football tidbit. First up, links:
  • I've written a lot about it this week but the photo documentation of my brussels sprouts adventure is up on Fighting Chance Fantasy, as well as this week's Five Game Parlay bets. Will I be able to turn things around this week? One can only hope.
  • Football Outsiders' Mike Tanier does another excellent job with his Week 7 NFL Matchups on the Fifth Down - I'm honestly not sure if there's a better review of each week's games out there. Seriously, do yourself a favor and go read Tanier's piece.
  •'s The Hive is up with advice for those in IDP leagues.
Consensus start/sits - for those new to this feature, I read through all the start/sit links that I provided earlier in the week and tally up those players with the most start and sit votes. You'll see their names below listed in no particular order...

Fantasy Football Libraria-
Please don't give up on brussel sprouts! So simple and easy to make good. The not so secret secret: BACON. Slice sprouts in half, spread across a baking sheet with cut up pieces of bacon (don't crowd the sheet too much). Dress with olive oil. Cook for 20-30 minutes at like 375. When done add a little salt and pepper and voila sprouty bacony deliciousness.

sit Vernon Davis.. nice! :)
Yup, micultra76, and how about sitting Owen Daniels, too? Not such a good week for the experts - at least with TEs in particular.

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

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
