Those clutch moments...

Well sometimes things really don't go as planned. Our car broke down yesterday as we were cruising along highway 81 in Virginia heading from Knoxville back up to DC on the next leg of our travels. Small disaster. We were towed off the interstate exit ramp and found a mechanic who can replace the clutch (we're hoping that's all that's wrong with it) by lunch today. So after my mind kept going cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching as I thought of how our plan to save money was actually backfiring on us, we found a crappy motel and holed up there, drinking beer and watching MNF. Could be worse, right? But right now I should be heading back home to NYC but instead we are sitting in a motel room in a small town in SW Virginia, trying to see how long we can milk a late check-out before we have to take refuge in a nearby Waffle House. Sigh.

So I had big plans for this post to unveil the winner of the 96-team monster FFLibrarian League, but I think I'm going to save that for later this week when I have a bit more time to digest it all. Same goes for my push on the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge league, but either click that link or send me an e-mail if you'd like to participate (password: librarian).

Onto today's links...

Sorry to hear about your car troubles but what can you do; shit happens.

Sounds like you made the best of a crappy situation.

Thanks for the great website; it definitely helped me get perspective on my FF decisions and I did well in all my leagues (I won two leagues, playoffs in 6 of 7). It will be in my toolkit for next year. I'd like to tell others about it but I don't like telling my competitors my info. Hehe. It's ironic because the website is on the internet. Anyhow. Happy New Year.

So sorry to hear about your trouble. I'm in Bristol, VA, and would have hooked you and Mr. Fflibrarian up with a good mechanic and bought you guys supper to thank you for all you do for all of us. Happy New Year

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
