FSTAing in Las Vegas

Before I get into today's post I just wanted to extend my thanks to you all for being patient with me while I took some time off - and for all of the kind e-mails and comments that you all sent my way about my grandpa. He was an incredible man, a real contributor to his community, and probably the reason that I love football. And ice cream.

But now I am in Las Vegas after a whirlwind week of flying between New York, Michigan, and now Nevada. I'm here for the Fantasy Sports Trade Association conference which begins tomorrow morning. I met a lot of awesome folks in the industry here last year so I'm really looking forward to seeing them - and some new faces! - over the next few days. I'll also be presenting the annual accuracy award that looks at the most accurate preseason rankings for 2009 - the results will be posted on the Fifth Down on Thursday and I will likely blog a lot more about it in the weeks to come here on FFLibrarian.

But there have been lots of quality articles over the past several days so I thought I'd get a few links up this afternoon - and hopefully I'll have time to get a post up tomorrow as well.
  • First up, let's take a look back at yesterday's games with the Bruno Boys' Championship Risers & Fallers. Or read this week's MMQB where you'll learn among far more football-relevant things that Favre gave his daughter the unfortunate name of Breleigh (sorry, I'm many years behind on my Favre trivia clearly). Is that some sort of Brett + Leigh = Breleigh? Not digging it, but hey, to each their own.
  • Meanwhile one of the only sites with Super Bowl projections up already? Fantasy Depth Chart - check out their Player Rankings.
  • And now a turn to the 2010 season...the FFManiaxs have been busy pulling together their dynasty positional rankings - take a look at their RB and WR rankings.
  • For more dynasty rankings, see what one of my favorite sites, Rotoworld, has to say in Dynasty Ranks: Wide Receivers
  • Or take a look at's Top 100 Player Rankings.
  • Over the past few weeks we've heard of several coaching changes - Athlon/Grogan Sports' Finger on the Pulse: NFL Coaching Carousel has a nice look at what these new coaching scenarios might mean for fantasy football in 2010.
  • Plus with the next crop of rookies preparing to show their wares, let's scope out some NFL Draft linkage:

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
