Time to get mocking

My friends, mock draft season has arrived. Several of my favorite fantasy football sites are rolling out their first real mock drafts of the season and I'm loving it. Guessing you will, too, or why the heck else would you be perusing a fantasy football blog in May??

Very quickly before we jump into today's links I just wanted to let you all know that I have a FSTA Summer Conference Blog. I'll probably update it a few times a week before the conference gets here (June 9-10), but you all might be most interested in my coverage of the expert fantasy football draft at the conference - as well as some of the sessions that pertain to trends in fantasy football. I'll get a reminder up here when it's conference time of course, but just something to keep on your radar.

Okay now back to mock drafts and other fun FF links:
  • When Yahoo's Roto Arcade blog starts talking football again, I know the season is getting close. Exciting times. They're unveiling their mock draft round-by-round so scope out Round 1 and Round 2 in their 12-team PPR league. Note: they welcome your critiques.
  • More mockiness from Rotoworld as they continue to give reasons why you'll want to buy their draft mag this summer - take a look at Instant Reaction: First Mock Draft to get some thoughts on how their mock went. Especially helpful? Noting where the value picks were and at what point some of the rookie runners were snagged.
  • I love Footballguys. Their daily e-mail is pretty much a must-read on the subway for me and today I was delighted to read that their 2010 projections are up. I'm linking you over to projections from David Dodds, one of their expert analysts, but there are projections from several other writers up, too. 
  • FFManiaxs have Top 10 Fantasy Football Busts for 2010 up - nothing too shocking here as a lot of these are going to be familiar names to those of you who have been paying attention to offseason hi-jinks and roster news, but still a decent launching point.
  • FFToolbox has their Fantasy Football Cheat Sheets up with a ranking of the Top 100 players - though you can also click through to the other rankings by offensive skill positions (looks like the IDPs are still to come).
  • SI's Fantasy Clicks also takes a look at some mock draft outcomes but also of interest, they see how some big sites did with their sleeper and bust picks for the 2009 season. Interesting stuff.

I recently emailed a QB Rankings list along with the rds where i thought they would go in and whether or not they were a value pick to the commish of my long-running league.

he replied with "well it's a little early for that sort of thing."

I responded with some self-deprecation: "It's never too early to be agonizing on where to draft Joe Flacco and Chad Henne."

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
