Quick morning recap

Gotta be quick this morning - that interview at Library B that I mentioned a few weeks ago? It's today and will last a solid 8ish hours when it's all said and done. Cross your fingers for me!

Waiver wire articles:
Other good stuff:
  • Always enjoy Rotoworld's Beyond the Box Score - a look at 5 interesting games from Sunday.
  • Another link that I always scope out is SI's Fantasy Clicks - great review of the weekend's games and chock full of interesting details. 
  •'s On the Rise, On the Fall - Week 11 has a nice preview of players whose value is heading up or down for this weekend's matchups. Love that some tiny voice in my head suggested I hang onto Forsett after drafting him as a flier...
  • Best part about MJD's apology to the fantasy community? That he was playing himself in his own fantasy league. Love it. 
  • ESPN's Week 11 projections are already up and available. Remember, there's another Thursday game this week.

Good luck in your interview!

Hey, this new job, it's not going to interfere with the blog, right? ;-)

I have been a daily follower of yours for only 9 weeks....but I find myself thinking about you and your interview. Hope it is going very very well. Your personality will no doubt shine through all day!

You go, girl! Library B would be crazy not to pick you!

Good luck! Also for my fellow readers a new update with Dwayne Bowe. He's suspended for 4 games. Chambers and Lance Long are in for some increased targets. Long has been targeted over 20 times the past 3 weeks as a #3 receiver.

Hi. I am the interviewer at Library B. We appreciate the time you spent today demonstrating your skills on the microfiche, and your considerable dewey decimel comprehension. However, your constant checking of "stats" on your cell phone when you should have been Shhhhh-ing people will present a problem here at Library B. Therefore we regret to inform you that you are not hired. Furthermore, we respectfully ask that you cease and desist in using the title Librarian in your blog until you are gainfully employed by an accredited literary institution. We suggest that you go with (we checked and the domain is available. You can thank us later)
Librarian A at Library B

Brian - I'm not sure Lance Long is someone I'd add at this point. Chambers is a little intriguing.

Here are some guys I'd consider before going down the Lance Long route:

Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers
Kevin Walter, Houston Texans
Patrick Crayton, Dallas Cowboys
Laveranues Coles, Cincinnati Bengals
Pierre Garcon, Indianapolis Colts
Donnie Avery, St. Louis Rams

Last Anonymous - Wait until after the Librarian gets the job before you make jokes.

I'm not a Bowe owner (was last year) and I probably don't need a WR right now, but I'm curious to see how things play out in KC. I wouldn't be surprised to see Lance Long's value increase to the point of being worth an add (those are some nice target numbers in recent weeks).

That said, it depends on the size of your league, of course. All the guys Lester named are already taken in my 14 team league.
LestersLegends said…
14 team league is a different animal, and in that case Long could be a viable option. The only thing that worries me is that his numbers are skewed by a strong Week 9 showing. The other two weeks he had four catches for 30 yards.

St. Louis' Brandon Gibson is an option if he's available.

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
