Name Twin and Week 10 prep

One of the really weird things that I discovered after moving to NYC? Sara Gore. Now those that know me are well aware that Gore is my maiden name, making me Sara Gore. Turns out I'm far from the only one. This is hardly a complete surprise since I grew up outside of DC playing soccer against Al Gore's daughter who happens to be my age and named Sarah. The sidelines would cheer for Sara(h) Gore thoroughly confusing all Sara(h) Gores on the field since how does the other team know my name and why are they cheering for me?? (note: when your name is Sara(h) and you're a child of the 80s, you get called by your full name since there are so many freaking Sara(h)s running around out there). So I was used to this existence of another Sara(h) Gore and even when we mistakenly received a wedding present for her, we clarified the situation, and I chuckled over still having this name twin. But things got creepy with the whole name twin thing upon moving to NYC since there's yet another Sara Gore who is a co-host of the tv show LX New York (and I believe she's been the host of NYC cab tv news?). It's just a little weird to be sitting in your living room, cranking out a fantasy football post, when bam you hear "I'm Sara Gore" or you look up and see your very own name on tv associated with someone else's face. It's just strange.

And I'm guessing this is how the Panthers and NYG Steve Smiths feel. I mean really, they've probably encountered countless other Steve Smiths (I know I have), but to have a famous person out there with your name (I'm using famous liberally here) - bizarre.

Speaking of names, there aren't a ton of new names on the waiver wire this week. But there's still lots of advice on which guys you might want on your radar or bench just in case they prove to be fantasy worthy. For the latest waiver thoughts, check out these links:
And yes, I've decided to completely avoid the depressing topic of my Broncos losing to the Steelers...

Thanks, as always, for the links!

Re: Sara(h), we just named our second adopted daughter (from Korea) Sarah.

Re: the Broncos, yeah, as a Steelers fan, I noticed that you sorta ignored the topic. :-)

It was a good game for PIT as they haven't really looked like a championship team for much of the year, especially with the running game. But they looked very good all around last night.

'Shard Mendenhall? I think someone got too excited watching MNF. For his ADP (mid-70's), Cedric Benson was the steal of the draft this year. How many fantasy 7th rounders end up vying for the rushing title in a given year? Not too many from my recollection.
Antonio D. said…
Yeah -- I run into the same problem with other dudes named Antonio D'Arcangelis all the time. Sucks, but whatcha gonna do?
Randy - yea for another Sara(h) in the world! As for the Broncos/Steelers game, it was really the second half of the game that was most pitiful for my Broncos. All around the offense struggled big time, but it's like they just gave up in the second half. Or the Steelers just had their number...

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
