Welcome to Miami, BMarsh

This morning as I emerged from the subway (and cursed beautiful Central Park for driving my allergies absolutely bananas) my phone absolutely blew up over the big Brandon Marshall news: my husband texted me the details and I had 3 e-mails waiting for me with the juicy news that my Broncos have (unofficially) traded away Marshall to the Dolphins for a second round pick this year and likely a second rounder in 2011 as well. As a Broncos fan I have mixed feelings on all of the wheeling and dealing since McDaniels arrived, but in the end I think what it comes down to is that we had incredible talent in guys like BMarsh and Cutler, but we certainly weren't going very far with it. So kudos to the boy genius (or so I hope) for grabbing some great picks and here's hoping we up the ante in Denver.

In case you're looking for some of the fantasy fallout from all of this, have no fear, that analysis will soon be up all over the place. Read on for Marshall thoughts and more...
  • has some short but sweet thoughts on Marshall's move to Miami - there are a host of others that this impacts beyond Marshall and Henne: what's next for Ginn? Or how low does Orton's value go? How about Denver's backfield - does this mean a heavier dose of runs without any sure potency in the receiving game? So much to ponder...
  • Lester's Legends already has the Marshall and Holmes trades reflected in his latest Updated Early Fantasy WR Rankings.
  • SI's Fantasy Clicks takes a good look at a range of fantasy football topics from most impactful rookies in fantasyland to the rise in Mike Wallace's value to rankings of TEs for the 2010 season...and lots, lots more.
  • If you're into the NFL Draft (I'm guessing you are if you're reading up on fantasy football in April) and you're interested in some rankings by position of the incoming rooks, then look no further than the brilliant mind of John Tuvey in The Huddle's 2010 Pre-NFL Draft Player Rankings. Sort of a side note: take advantage of this small window of time before The Huddle material is behind a paywall - it's truly a top-notch site. If you're going to shell out the bucks for any non-free FF analysis this year, The Huddle would be one of my top recommendations.
  • Meanwhile for more draft thoughts but this time of the fantasy variety, see Fantasy Football Xtreme's 2010 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 3.0. You can go back in time to see how it has evolved from their 1.0 and 2.0 mocks earlier in the offseason.
  • FFToolbox has a handy little chart that has somehow gone unnoticed with me thus far - it's their look at Strong Finishers from weeks 12-17 of the 2009 season. I'm pretty intrigued with the idea of late season performances and how they translate into success the following year; but I'm also into the idea of guys who just consistently produce in the latter third of the season. So however you want to spin it, good stuff here.
  • Finally, if you're an iPhone lover take a good look at Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's new app to help you come draft day.

Good luck with the trade. Hopefully for Bronco fans like yourself it's addition by subtraction. Will Eddie Royal resurface?

Thanks for the link.

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
