Time to get moving

It's hard to believe July is almost here but you all know what that means? The unofficial increase of fantasy content as the NFL season gets closer and closer. Training camps start in July so if that doesn't get you excited then I don't know what will. July also means moving time for me - my husband and I found a new apartment to accommodate our growing family and are moving on July 17th...a mere 2.5 weeks away. But is anything packed yet? Of course not. And does that make me anxious? Of course! It's an assault on all of my natural instincts to plan, but I figure it's good for me. Though if I start babbling about boxes and packing tape a lot in the next few weeks, you'll know why.

Plenty of links to send you to today, including a few new draft kits. With a long weekend coming up in a few days, sounds like plenty of time for grilling, fireworks and of course FF prepping.
  • First up, let's get to those draft kits. ESPN's 2010 Draft Kit is pretty chock full of good, standard stuff like rankings and projections, player profiles, position reviews, and other interesting tools like the 2009 Fantasy Points Against by position
  • Another place to swing by is Fox's Draft Guide - for those looking for a basic intro to fantasy football, check out their Fantasy 101: How to Play article from OPEN Sports.
  • I always dig what Mighty Max the supercomputer has to say over at Sports Grumblings - take a look at their Fantasy Football Forecast: Consistency Rankings article. Interesting quick read, particularly useful when deciding between two players of similar caliber, though the full consistency rankings (CRs) require signing up for Sports Grumblings (there is a free level though and the CRs are available for free).
  • FFToolbox has a nice 2010 preview of 10 sophomore players, just RBs and WRs. Scope out their thoughts on which players are poised for a strong season in Sophomore Outlook
  • Meanwhile Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy rolls on with their offensive line analysis - I'll link you over to the Broncos write-up since that is of course of great interest to this Denver fan...but remember you can scope out all the other write-ups here (still 8 more teams to go). 
  • takes a look at the Saints backfield in Time to Ring a Different Bell with some suggestions on guys you might to think about from NO.
  • has adjusted their auction values to reflect the more standard $200 starting amount - take a look at the updated rankings with auction values on their site.

love the site and dedication to FF, keep up the great work!

i have to say i get a chuckle out of every auction/league that uses $200 for their cap value. dust off the elementary school math books and divide by 2. any/all auctions should always be viewed as $100 or more accurately 100%.

Believe what the guy was saying about Hamilton down in NO.

As a Pierre Thomas owner last year, I can tell you that Sean Payton has no problem with screwing PT over in favor of other RBs plus Drew Brees on the sneak. 2-3 times, PT did the heavy lifting to get down to the goal line only to be standing on the sidelines, watching someone else run in for the score.

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
