Monday morning fantasy links

This is the time of year when dormant fantasy football sites start to come alive again - love it. So let's get right to today's links as I feel like there's a lot to cover this morning...
  • takes a look at nearly 20 second-year players in their Sophomore Breakouts article - take a look to see which players they think are set for a solid 2010.
  • If it's really rookies that you're interested in, no problem - most sites have some ideas on which rooks to pay attention to this season, including Fantasy Phenoms with 2 different articles - a dissection of AFC teams and NFC teams.
  • Staying with the theme of rookie analysis, Razzball is brings us some thoughts on the Top 10 IDP Rookie Linebackers.
  • FFToolbox is taking a look at something very near and dear to my heart: Offensive Line Research and Analysis. You can play around with their spreadsheet for whatever your o-line needs might be or click on a team name for more details. I'll be writing up some thoughts on o-lines in Rotoworld's draft magazine again this season so I of course love this kind of research. 
  • Speaking of Rotoworld and their magazine, take a look at Pancake Blocks to see some how the Rotoworld experts agree or disagree with some of their positional rankings this year. The full rankings will be available once the mag is out next month, but Evan Silva does a great job of highlighting some of the more interesting players that they agree/disagree about this year.
  • Football Jabber links over to ESPN's preseason power rankings for the 2010 season and tosses in a few thoughts of his own on the rankings.
  • Last year I was convinced that Michael Turner could beat the 370 Curse and prove to be a top back...I wasn't exactly oh, right let's say on that one. But I am hearing great news about Turner the Burner again and have to admit I'm getting kind of psyched about his 2010 potential. Note that he is appearing leaner and in great shape post-ankle injury. Am I getting overly excited about him again this year or are you guys with me on Turner?
Finally, just wanted to say a quick thanks for all of the many comments and e-mails I received from you all congratulating us on our baby-to-be. I really appreciate it - you guys are awesome!

You're not alone on Turner. I'm targeting him for my drafts cause I think he'll be downgraded a little just based on his 2009 performance and end of season stats. Let's not forget that he had one of the most difficult schedules last year. I think he's going to bounce back in a big way this year!
agreed on Turner. just watching him last year (pre-injury obviously) tear up D's was enough to convince me for this coming year. improved ATL team overall and no competition for touches. amazing talent in pass game only helps. Turner will be golden.
and his legs are gigantic.

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
