Wild card rankings, 2010 thoughts, and more!

Happy Friday! I hope you all enjoyed the National Championship game last night - like many of you I'm sure, I definitely thought Texas had a shot as they started to make things more interesting in the 4th quarter. Though all I could think about for awhile there was how impressive Texas' backup QB was and how I couldn't even imagine my Northwestern Wildcats maintaining so much talent on the bench. Man, playing the game at different levels for sure.

Anyway, back to the NFL. It's been a few days since I've mentioned how psyched I am to be going to the Super Bowl courtesy of Buffalo Wild Wings, so I thought I'd bring it up again lest you all think I've become blase about such a gigantic coup. Trust me, within about an hour or so of waking up every morning, I gleefully think to myself, "I'm going to the Super Bowl!" But time now for today's links...
Enjoy this weekend's games and remember to join in on the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge fun (password: librarian) if you haven't already! Right now there are 114 of us and one of you will be walking away with a nice little $25 gift card to Amazon thanks to the Bruno Boys.

Any ideas on how to obtain access for the Playoff Challenge games on Yes, I have the required username and password combo. I can see my account info. But when I try to log in, it always kicks me out and says my username and password are not valid. I've tried getting help from the tech guys, but they have not responded to my requests. How can they get away with such a terrible user experience on their Playoff Challenge website?
Bigboid - I'm sorry to hear this...hmm. I know my husband had trouble with something like this at first, thought he had a username and pword already set up but didn't seem to think he did. So he created a new one, which sadly is my best advice. Other than bother the crap out of's tech guys until they respond. :) I've got your e-mail address I think so I'll try sending you an invitation in case that somehow makes a difference.

Sara, thanks! I eventually called the 800 number provided in one e-mail regarding usernames and passwords I had from Turns out, my previous account registration was with CBS Sports, which runs the League Manager. Yes, I had to re-register specifically with They could certainly do a much better job at making the distinction obvious. Thanks for your help. I'm now in your league, as The Salarymen.

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.

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
