Scouring for new names on waiver wire

What a crazy Sunday. As evidenced by my picks in Fighting Chance Fantasy's Five Game Parlay for the week, I was pretty off on the outcome of a lot of games. And now I have to eat a brussels sprout. I'm not happy about this and my inner child is emerging ("does one bite count?" "what kind of a chaser food can I have ready?").Oh did this happen?

I had a great weekend with my mom in town though I did end up trading in some football for a trip to the MoMA, so I've been catching up on the big football news from yesterday. If you also missed any of the games yesterday, there are a few good recap articles out there. So onto today's links!
I'm sure my regular readers know how excited I am about tonight's MNF game - go Broncos!! Eddie Royal is tweeting how ready he is for the game with a link to the MNF theme song, and frankly I couldn't agree more!

Good luck to your Broncos tonight.

Thanks for the link.

my wife and I have made this several times and we were both pleasantly surprised by how tasty it is. I was forced to have brussel sprouts all the time as a kid and hated them... this recipe makes them pretty good:

Canned or fresh?
If fresh, steamed with a touch of butter & seasonings. Do not over cook. Not bad. Canned? Your bumming.

You going pull off win number two? Gotta be hard watching Brandon beating your 96 player league team.

I have 2 trades that I am discussing with 2 different owners. Do you think I should make them?

1st -
I give up D. Jackson
I get Mendenhall
*This deal is mine if I want it. The other guy said he'll accept it right away.

2nd -
I give up Portis and Sanana Moss
I get Steve Smith.
***I do not know if this guy will accept yet. Smith is currently getting shutout today and he said he'd 'consider it'.

I am desperately trying to trade Portis for the best available WR because by giving up Jackson I'm going to be very thin at WR.

Here is my current roster -
QB - Rivers
Flex - Favre
RB - Benson
WR - White
WR - Jackson
WR - Moss
TE - Shiancoe
K - Nedney
D - Vikings

B. Wells
F. Jones
S. Greene
M. Wallace
J. Gage
J. Hanson (1 week only for bye)

If I make both deals here would be new roster

This is a 12 team PPR league which allows us to play any position at Flex (4 points per pass TD, 6 points per rush/receiving TD)

Sean - Personally I like your roster as is better. Getting Mendy would be nice, but you'd leave yourself awfully thin at WR.

I'd rather use a QB than a RB as my flex. I assume Favre has much more points than Mendy and probably even Benson.
Sean - I agree with Lester here, your roster now is better than it would be with a trade. Which Steve Smith is involved?

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.

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
