Looking for your feedback

It's possible that I just walked into a scene from that show The Apprentice; is that show even on anymore? I was running an errand in midtown NYC and encountered a significant mob surrounding a dude with free pizza selling pedicab rides being filmed by a rather extensive tv crew. I've never actually seen the show but the buzz on the street corner was that this was The Apprentice or something akin to it. Look for a pregnant lady with an annoyed-by-the-tourist-mob expression when it airs: that's me. So NY of me, right?

So I disappeared for a week and thought in return I'd hit you with back-to-back posts as a taste of what's to come once the season really gets cranking. Without further ado, today's links:
  • If you'd like someone to debate all the pros and cons of the elite WRs on the scene, then head on over to and see which guys they cover in Top 6 WR Pros & Cons
  • Wondering which guys are going to bounce back from tough 2009 seasons for a mighty 2010? lists a handful of Comeback Candidates including names that I'm seeing everywhere (Jay Cutler, Calvin Johnson) and a few other once studs like Turner the Burner and Greg Jennings. Read on to find out the others with big 2010 potential. 
  • I love most everything that Football Outsiders posts and their Offensive Drop Rate was pretty entertaining really. Take a look at which players with a minimum of 30 targets have the best and worst hands in the league. Interesting to note the presence of multiple Giants and multiple Chiefs.
  • Rotoworld's Evan Silva is chronicling his ongoing PPR industry mock draft - I wouldn't call it lightning fast or anything, but it's enlightening to see the picks and read Silva's commentary of course. There are also 15 pages of comments...soooo...if you're having a slow day at work, head on over and add your voice.
While you noodle on the fantasy football world in mid-June (and I love you all for doing that), I'd also love for you to think about what you'd really like to see from this site this year. I've got a couple things in the works, including bringing in some of my first real contributors with FF analysis (particularly of a stats nature) in addition to my normal link fest, but if there's anything you're dying to see this summer or fall, let me know. E-mail me, leave a comment, smoke signal it my way, whatever works for you.

Also, I've heard from a handful of you that are looking for a comparison of different hosting platforms (Yahoo, CBS, MyFantasyLeague, etc) and while I certainly have my opinions, I'd sort of like to open it up to you all. Send me your comments about your favorite host site by June 25th and I'll pull together a synopsis and post it up here by the end of the month.

I love this blog, it's pretty much the only one I use for my knowledge. you take the best of the rest and post it on your site. It would be interesting to hear more of what YOU think about certain situations. i always like waiver wire talk. but they always talk about the obvious guys... i want to be a week ahead! pick up the rookie/no name that's trending up before he has his big game. That's the stuff I'm looking for! you gotta make at least one of those kind of moves to win a championship in a competitive league...

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
