Feeling merry with Week 13 prep

Tonight I'm headed to Rockefeller Center to watch the big tree lighting extravaganza. I can't seem to get enough of the cheesy holiday NYC traditions. I walked past a row of Christmas trees for sale yesterday and had an overwhelming desire to buy one right then and there...until I had an image in my head of how fun it was to lug our A/C unit into our apartment. And by fun I mean horrible. I imagine a tree is an equally awkward and hefty item to cart around the streets of Brooklyn so I might bow out of the tree option this year.

So it's Wednesday, we've got football on tomorrow night and there's still plenty of time to take in all of the waiver, start/sit, and rankings advice out there. Let's get to it...
Just a reminder to get commenting on the Buffalo Wild Wings website if you'd like a chance to win a BWW $50 gift card. Also, I have another giveaway from BWW to share with you all, my fine readers, but I'm struggling with a good contest. Any thoughts?

Re: contest ideas...not sure of your timing. Did you want results prior to end of regular season?

If so - Week 15 has a juicy CIN/SD about predicting results of that game specifically?

If not - predict the wildcard teams or predict week 17 top scoring QB, RB, WR and TE who are NOT regular starters.

I recommend a 4' tall fake tree (Target usually has some decent ones) and a pine-scented candle - almost as good as the real thing once it's decorated and you can reuse it every year (or at least as long as you're in the apartment).

OR how about this - better connected to BWW site (which they might like, after all):

We all predict your final Week 15 lineup for your BWW team. From those who correctly predict who you wind up starting top to bottom, you'll randomly pull the winner.

I know it's not the same, but Dan is onto something. Get a fake tree and a candle. Great advice Dan.

Leave the fakes alone - buy a couple of boughs/sprigs of real greens from the street vendors and add some pine cones. The fresh scents alone will give you a solid tree alternative. And don't forget the mistletoe!

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
