Get ready for Week 8 prep

I love my neighborhood - I think it's just beautiful. I felt this way as soon as laid eyes on it when we were apartment hunting this summer. There's just such an abundance of character between the brownstones, old apartment buildings, churches, banks, and even the court buildings. Now I'll be the first to admit that I didn't think anything in New York City could possibly top my Boulder foothills, and while Boulder still takes the cake, my Brooklyn 'hood is awesome in a totally different way. I was walking around in the cool drizzle here yesterday thinking about how absolutely lovely the changing leaves are, even on a soggy day...and it occurred to me: this is it. This is how autumn was meant to be.

And what makes autumn even better? Football. So let's get to today's links:
Will you all be tuning in to watch The League tonight? I'm headed to a concert so I've got it set to DVR - I'm intrigued, I admit it, despite this far less than awesome review.

Trade DeSean Jackson and Chester Taylor for Boldin and McCoy?
Check out "5 Up and 5 Down" from .

Thank You.

Just pointing out that I went to the first recommended site
and was confused by Ryan Grant being so highly ranked. He has not had an amazing season (although I played him last week with success) but this week he plays Minnesota. I do NOT think he will earn the 4th most fantasy points for a RB this week. Made me stop reading their site.

Funny the next site I visit, NY Times writes this:
Ryan Grant vs. Minnesota - Grant had 51 yards in their first meeting, and the Vikings are the fourth worst matchup for running backs.

Can't afford to have Jennings and Forte to roll over and play dead anymore. They have had their shots at a few cupcakes and not produced. It may be that limp-along Rodgers finally gets some contacts so he can see down-field but then some DL-man will run over him and he'll lose em. I cut both of em.

As for DeSean for LeSean and Taylor for Boldin ... why? Are you heavy in RBs and light on WRs? If so then do what you need to do.

I like the matchup of Grant vs Minny at home. The guy above says "He has not had an amazing season" but Grant is averaging 13 points per game. Those are pretty decent numbers. Is he worth the 4th overall, maybe not, but you can't argue that he's not in the top 10. SO if he's no. 4 or no. 10 the difference is probably a point or so. I like the site Librarian, especially the IDP since my leagues carries 6 defensive players. Thanks for the link and all the hard work finding the sites. Makes things a lot easier.

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
