Breaking for some FF linkage

Today we're back to regular links here on FFLibrarian, but don't worry, I'll be back tomorrow with the wide receiver results for the multi-year accuracy analysis. Or maybe even tonight if I get overly ambitious but I think we all know that's unlikely, solely based on how long it has taken me to get to this point of the process. Also, as requested by several of you, tomorrow I will post all 54 sites that have participated in the contest over the past 3 years.

But let's jump into today's links since there's some good stuff being posted this week:

  • First and foremost, I'm guessing you've heard that Steve Smith (CAR) broke his arm while playing flag football but just in case you missed the news, take a look at ESPN's Stephania Bell's take on the injury. Her blog is always a great place to start if you're wondering about the real toll of a player's injury.
  • Speaking of injuries, another good read is FFToday's Anatomy of an Injury series, with this one looking at wide receivers including dudes like Donald Driver (when will he just totally fall off a cliff?) and Brandon Marshall.
  • Dave and Jamie at are pulling together team-by-team fantasy outlooks and so far they've knocked off the AFC North. Read up and check back for the rest of the team takes as they go up.
  • FootballDocs have created both a passing and rushing strength of schedule and I particularly enjoy their note that a favorable schedule "should only account for no more than 10% of a player's value when ranking them" - interesting stuff. Plus it's just full of numbers to keep the mind entertained for a chunk of the afternoon if need be. I will throw my two cents in that a lot can change year to year and that it's always wise to really assess a strength of schedule once we're a few games into the regular season...the Giants D last year being a case in point.
  • Find out who KFFL thinks will be a bust QB vs an undervalued QB this season. The tough angle to the undervalued player though is that if a smart, widely-read site like KFFL thinks you're undervalued in June, no chance you'll actually be a value pick come draft day in August/September. Unless the "he's overhyped" train has started by then...
  • Gotta admit I'm not one to usually splurge for a top tier TE and typically prefer to wait a bit and grab guys with a lot of upside at a cheaper cost. But I do find's Tightening Their Grip a compelling read as to why your fantasy team needs a top tier TE.
  • Finally, I think it's pretty clear that I love Rotoworld. They are truly one of my favorite resources and if you're going to shell out for a product, Rotoworld's Draft Guide (along with and The Huddle) is one of my top recommendations to most folks. That of course does depend on your league's needs (for example,'s Dynasty Draft Guide could be a focus for those of you in dynasty/keeper leagues). But back to Rotoworld. They rock and their Draft Guide gets my full endorsement.

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
