I'm 4-0! Oh....and 0-4

Well for every big win somewhere there's a big loss, right? I'm now 4-0 in the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League and am thrilled that Aaron Rodgers pulled through with a pretty decent fantasy outing (he threw for a career high of 384 yards)...but I'm also an embarrassing 0-4 in my own monster 96-team FFLibrarian League. I suppose I'd rather be doing well in the league where I'm gunning for a trip to Miami during the Super Bowl but frankly I'd like to win everywhere! The rest of my leagues are far more pedestrian with a smattering of 1-3, 2-2, and 3-1 records. So here's hoping you all are sitting pretty with 4-0 records.

Now Rodgers has a bye next week so I've got my eye out on QBs right now in particular - let's do a quick new round-up of QBs from First up, Donovan McNabb. I'm quite eager for his return and it looks like he's expected to play this weekend. Meanwhile Coach Mora is optimistic that Matt Hasselbeck will also return this week and the Titans are planning on sticking with Kerry Collins.

Let's start off the rest of the links with some waiver wire advice:
  • The Sports Outlaw's Waiver Wire - Week 5 is feeding into my growing Kenny Britt love. 
  • In Waiver Wire Work for Week 5, Pigskin Addiction throws in some unexpected names like Lamont Jordan, Vince Young, and Rashad Jennings.  
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's Week 5 waiver thoughts are up in video style. Remember, Hatty specializes in deep league suggestions.  
  • Get your waiver thoughts from via video or text in RBs Mendenhall, Harrison will be hot names on fantasy waiver wire - though I think you're a lucky FFer if either one is still available in your league. 
  • Rotoworld's Early Waiver Wired Look has a snapshot of everything that deep and shallow leagues might need. Check back later today for the full column.  
  • Finally, if you'd like even more links out to the expert waiver advice of the week, see what the Washington Post's Fantasy Check has pulled together in Wired Up: Week 5.
A few more solid links you'll want to check out:
  • I don't think I've linked to Junkyard Jake's Pass Targets chart before but it's a particularly good one since it includes data for the season and the current week. Plus, I like the red zone targets data - good stuff.  
  •'s Week 4 surprises offers up a bunch of tidbits from this weekend's games.
  • Or take a look at Rotoworld's Questions Answered - one of the reasons I love Rotoworld is because Gregg always adds a little something that I didn't already know. I can't believe the Bears only ran 50 plays all game - crazy. On Saturday, my Northwestern Wildcats had run 50 plays far before the 2nd half arrived (yeah more than a little unusual but hey, they won the game!).
I'm off to go work on my weekly column for the Bruno Boys!

Congrats, Sara! Hope you can keep it up!

I appreciated your help last week and am back again with a RB dilemma. Dropped FWP last week due to the injury instead of J. Jones and Mendenhall played so well, I think I'll leave him there. Picked up Coffee but didn't get anything out of him although he played well. Would like to pickup J. Harrison, I think, but like the rest of my boys:

D. Williams
D. Brown
R. Grant (on bye)
J. Jones
G. Coffee

It's a TD only league with double points for receiving TDs by RBs.

I could drop J. Jones and start Coffee (vs. Atl) and Harrison (vs. Buf), both seem to have easier opponents than Williams (Wash) and Brown (TN).


Thanks, Mary

I'm 3-1 in four of my five leagues, but the one that I'm 0-4 in frustrates me more than the joy I take in the other leagues.

Keep that undefeated season going, although I'm hoping your Broncos don't as they play my Pats this weekend. hands out 1st quarter report cards and week 5 waiver wire pick ups !

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
