Divisional decisions

Happy almost three-day weekend (and happy MLK Jr's official birthday). I will be celebrating the weekend by putting the finishing touches on my fantasy football accuracy analysis, which I am almost done with. Meanwhile The Big Lead has done an accuracy analysis of their own (love seeing this concept pick up steam) looking at 7 different sites' preseason rankings. Take a look at their results, which were compiled in a relatively similar manner to what I do - I'll be very interested in seeing how similar our end results are when it's all said and done.

But let's take a look at today's links to help those of you in playoff leagues like the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge (there are 162 of us!) get your best lineup set:
  • I'm pretty much sold when I see the phrase Abita beer in a post (there's some tasty Abita Amber on tap at the Henry St. Ale House a few blocks away from me), but The Hazean also has some quality football commentary for us in Round Two Start & Sit.
  • RotoExperts' Divisional Thunderdome is chock full of position rankings and insight for this weekend's games.
  • More rankings from FFXtreme's Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings Part 2. Kind of amazing that Adrian Peterson isn't top dog on all these rankings - that just goes to show how much more potent the Cowboys run defense has been lately...and perhaps how relatively unspectacular Peterson has been. Don't get me wrong, he's still high up on this weekend's rankings, but there isn't the outpouring of love that we would've seen for him in the past. 
  • For some thoughts on how to work the passing games and rushing games this weekend (and projections), see what FFToday has to offer in Inside the Matchup: Divisional Playoffs.
  • If you're really just looking for some words of wisdom on the matchups and are kind of done with the fantasy angle, I've got you covered - Football Outsiders' Mike Tanier does a spectacular job with weekly matchups on the Fifth Down so take a look at Saturday's NFL Divisional Matchups and Sunday's NFL Divisional Matchups.
  • Rotoworld really never disappoints and Signs of the Future is no exception - it has a nice look at RBBC (running back by committee) trends over the past several years as well as important player notes for both this weekend and the 2010 season. 
  • Finally if you're a NFL Draft junkie, then you'll want to take a look at's list of Underclassmen who intend to enter the 2010 draft, which I believe has been continuously updated over the past month or so.
Happy weekend and good luck in your playoffs leagues!

And for those who don't drink...Abita Root Beer is the best root beer available. Hard to find, but worth getting it shipped from New Orleans!

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
