Do you have a snow day? Make it a FFLibrarian day!

A funny thing happened this morning as I awoke to the sound of hail hitting our bedroom window with some unpleasant regularity and ferocity - it occurred to me that I don't actually have to leave my apartment today if I don't want to. As a freelance writer who works from home (sounds so much better than an unemployed librarian, doesn't it?), there's absolutely no one out there who is expecting me to be anywhere other than here at home. I'll liken this realization to the one that college kids have when they leave home for the first time and realize that they can have ice cream for breakfast if they really want - you know you probably shouldn't, but it's certainly an option. If I stay inside all day, this might be my first step towards being the crazy cat lady who never leaves her I'm counting on the weatherman to be right that this will blow over by late afternoon and will plan my daily outing accordingly. Now for those of you with several inches of snow outside (I'm jealous!), may you be enjoying a snow day today!

So onto today's links...
  • We've got lots of waiver wire links still churning out:
  • If you're a Maurice Jones-Drew owner, you might want to take a look at The Huddle's discussion of whether or not he's wearing down as the season progresses.
  • Rotoworld's Week 13 Target Report Highlights shows why Davone Bess is a popular name off of waiver wires this week.
  • A few start/sit and ranking links are up:
  • If you're a FFToolbox reader, take just a quick minute to fill out their survey asking for your opinion on changes and improvements to the awesome resources they provide.
  • I grabbed the Carolina D/ST last week and had much success with that move - I highly endorse picking up D/STs based on matchups and Razzball has a nice article on D/STs to snag for the playoffs in The Best Defense is a Good Matchup.
  • I think this will be the second week that we've lost out on the chance for a $50 gift card from Buffalo Wild Wings - the blogger with the most comments on the All-Star Blogger League site is eligible for that gift card and we've lost to Sports Outlaw lately. So bring on the comments! I'll be randomly selecting from the commenters to determine the winner of the gift card - so comment away on my post today.
Finally, one last reminder for those in the NYC area to come on out for the Thursday Night Football game tomorrow at the Brooklyn Buffalo Wild Wings - if you're interested in coming (we'll be arriving around 8), send me an e-mail!

We were supposed to get a ton of snow in MN, but it's been mainly very windy. Weather terrorists struck fear again.

Thanks for all the help throughout the season, FFL. I made the playoffs in all 3 of my leagues - but I'm facing off VS Chris Johnson in two of them this week - so it'll be one and done for me. I did get a bye in my other league, so that's good. We got 6" (wet and HEAVY) in Massachusetts, which was plenty for me - 17" woulda killed me.

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

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.

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
