Both playoffs and 2010 advice

Well it has been a weekend of late nights and late mornings here in Brooklyn. With both my brother-in-law and some friends in town, we've been out late enjoying sporting events and good times. But it's not all puppies and lollipops here - I've lost in the playoffs to a friend who likes to needle me about any and all wins he has over me (yup, I'm talking about you, Sam), but I'm still alive and well in two other leagues including the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League. If Quinton Ganther can put up 22 or fewer points, I'm money and will move onto the final round of playoffs. I've got my fingers crossed since that would certainly make up for my world of hurt what with the Broncos losing to the Raiders. I can't believe I typed that sentence. So painful. But hey, at least I'm not Ryan of Fighting Chance Fantasy whose losing parlay bet means he not only has to suffer through watching Dirty Dancing but will also need to sing "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" on Fighting Chance Radio on Tuesday night. Oh good times.

Moving onto today's links:

Good luck tonight. That's funny about the Dirty Dancing bet.

I've got a question for the Librarian, and you all. Through my own numbskulledness, I am 2 pts behind with one player left to go this evening. That player? The redskins K. The problem? He's listed as Q. Now, this isn't a problem, I don't think. Gano will most likely start, but...

I was wondering if there is a website I can go to an hour before kickoff which will tell me if he's playing?

Any help at all is appreciated. I'm just worried that since he's a kicker that no site will give a darn and list him as active or inactive.

Thanks again.
Douglas - does a great job listing all inactives: Even kickers! So check back there for news before tonight's game.

Good luck!

thanks so much! I knew this would be the place to come with advice. And good luck to you 2 other leagues.

(i've never stayed alive this long myself. I think I might need to send Jamaal Charles a fruit basket or something if I win!)

Hey Sara, thanks for the plug! Yeah, just what I want, more people listening to me sing tomorrow night! Stupid Vikings!

Hi Sara!

Advanced to 1 FFL final, lost in semifinal in other FFL league and NY Giants crushed the Redskins. So I guess two out of three ain't bad (per Meat Loaf :-)

However, that semifinal loss to my brother, who will let me know all about it when I see him in a few days. C'est la vie!

Happy Holidays!

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
