Rockstar links for Week 11

I am a rockstar. Okay, not really, the closest I've ever come to rocking an instrument was the recorder back in 3rd grade. But I was living like a rockstar last night, somehow hanging out with my husband's old college buddies until 3 AM. As someone who is frequently in bed by 11 most Wednesday nights, this was a rare occurrence. When we left the bar though there were still plenty of others going strong on a Wednesday night; I mean, who are these people?! How do so many folks have schedules that allow them to be out and about like that in the wee hours of a Wednesday night turned to Thursday morning? Well it's New York City, friends, it's New York City.

So big surprise, I'm running late today with my post. Good thing I have a lot of awesome material to make up for the slowness of my morning post.
Enjoy the Thursday Night Football game and I'll be back tomorrow with even more start/sit links!

With the trade deadline coming up tomorrow in a league of mine, I'm just wondering who everyone thinks has more keeper value, Mike Sims-Walker or Sidney Rice.

Our league rotates the number of keepers you get each season in a 2-1-2-1... manner. After this season we just keep 1. If you keep a guy you've held previously then you lose your first round pick otherwise the player gets applied to where they were drafted in the prior year. Sims-Walker and Rice were both undrafted which means they would be 17th round picks if held.

My team is in last and I'll get the first overall pick if that holds, so I'm just looking towards next year. I have Sims-Walker but was thinking about offering Roddy White for Rice (my WRs are White, Jennings, Ward, MSW, and Burleson). My other options to keep would be Donald Brown (rd 8) or Shonn Green (rd 17). Nobody else on my team is really worth losing a pick at their respective draft location.

Personally I think MSW has a better keep value. Favre is going to retire(again) next year and I really can't fathom who the Vikes are going to pick up to replace him and play at the current level he has been in. MSW on the other hand has proved himself to be start worthy for the Jags and Garrard will be back again next year looking for his favorite target.

I agree. I would hold on to Sims-Walker especially if return yards don't get points in your league.

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
