Round One Wrap-up

I'm hopping on a bus (promise, it's better than it sounds) to Boston this afternoon for an art librarian conference so there's a good chance you won't be hearing from me again until early next week as I library it up all weekend long. There will be lots to take in with all the draft picks flying off the board over the weekend so I definitely recommend you swing by somewhere like Rotoworld, which will give you the news as well as some fantasy analysis. Also, Twitter was blowing up last night with all of the picks coming in - I'm guessing it will probably be a bit quieter tonight but scope out your favorite tweeters or #NFLdraft for all the news.

So let's check out some highlights from today's fantasyland:
  • Fantasy Depth Chart has already updated their Single Season Rankings/Projections to reflect the picks from the first round of the NFL draft. 
  • Rotoworld takes a visual look at each of the 32 picks from last night with thoughts on what that pick might mean for a team, or what kind of capacity we can expect that player to play in this fall. 
  • Ahh, leave it to my Broncos to make the most controversial pick of the first round. Pretty standard for McDaniels. I've already heard from several of you who are interested in my take on the selection of Tebow. My first reaction was a resounding "nooooo!" but the longer I mull it over, the more I feel like he does have a lot to offer. He is one of the best players in college football history and while that doesn't always translate to the NFL, I find it likely that his skill (at some position...) and incredible work ethic will be beneficial to the Broncos. Whether or not he'll be worth the first round pick no longer really matters to me. What's done is done, debating the merits of grabbing Tebow before McCoy (my preference) or Clausen isn't really something I'm interested in doing - I'd rather move on and get going on figuring out how to maximize Tebow's role on the team. That said, read a range of expert thoughts and voice your opinion on this on the Fifth Down's Did Broncos Make Right Call on Tebow?
  • Don't stop watching the draft now - as's Talent still plentiful in second and third rounds notes, there are plenty of incredible players coming to our favorite teams tonight so be sure to tune in. I for one can't wait to see where Northwestern's Corey Wootton goes - it's not every year that my Wildcats produce such great draft-worthy talent!
  • Finally, if you're sick of draft talk, the FFManiaxs take a look at the schedule release from earlier this week and pick out Five Favorable NFL Schedules in 2010 and Five Unfavorable NFL Schedules in 2010.

Not sure what Denver was thinking. Hopefully for your sake it pans out.

I would have thought they would have added a defensive player with one of those two picks.

You must not be updating your site because you are probably just laying in bed trying to convince yourself Denver's draft was only a nightmare. I don't think Josh McDaniel's understands how football is played.

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.

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
