Say goodbye to your friends & family, Thursday Night Football kicks off

Can't. Stay. Away. Oh yeah, double post. So much to link to today, but truth be told I must keep my fingers moving before they go numb in this frigidaire of an apartment I live in...just saw a penguin waddle by. Kidding, not that bad. But I'm seriously considering fingerless gloves in my own apartment.

Onto the pre-game links...
  • I've got a quality Thursday night matchup link to bring you first. Rotoworld's Evan Silva does a great job with a look at the Bears vs 49ers matchup tonight - gotta say, knowing what the Cardinals were able to do against the Bears secondary gives me pause over benching Crabtree. I'm stuck starting Alex Smith in my deepest league so here's hoping something works out with that passing game...
  • Fantasy Football Fools has a nice Thursday Night Football is for Lovers title for his start/sit advice this week. The native Virginian in me digs that play on my state's tourism logo.   
  • A little more start/sit help from Fighting Chance Fantasy's Who to Start, Who to Sit. I'd like to point out that Ryan from FCF owes me a brussels sprout taste. Still. This is what losing tastes like, buddy! 
  • A couple of IDP links:
  • And now for the roundtable love:
    • The good fellas at Razzball bring us Week 10 Raves and Busters from some of the smartest of the smarty pants on the FF scene.
    • The rest of the smartest of the smarty pants can be found on Rotoprofessor discussing the adjustments you should make to your fantasy strategy now that Thursday games have begun.

Thanks for the post.

Oy, I started Alex Smith because I have Eli Manning on a bye and I didn't like Carson Palmer's matchup. Not a good idea.

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
