Summer camp fun begins

Training camp! The time has finally come! I know I've linked to this list of training camp dates before but it seems more relevant now that the end of July is here. So check out FFToolbox's list to know when each team gets the training camp ball rolling - that is, if they haven't already.
  • On the training camp note, Rotoworld has a nice Training camp preview: Position Battles article. Reasons to like it? They note which battles are worth caring about it and which aren't - plus the section on battles they've already analyzed frequently includes links to Rotoworld's relevant posts/articles from earlier in the offseason.
  • Or scope out the Fifth Down's Five Big Questions Heading Into Training Camp, which has a quick look at several key concerns in NFL land. 
  • Last week I tried to make it to the Sirius XM's celebrity fantasy draft here in Times Square but sadly couldn't quite make it to a middle-of-the-work-day draft. But I was intrigued since some dudes I know like Scott Engel from were participating, along with oh Maurice Jones-Drew. Nice. For the results of the draft, check out this link from Sirius.
  • Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy takes inspiration from the well-known Crank Scores (consistency rank) from one of my favorite sites,, and delves a bit deeper into the question of whether one should focus on drafting "better" players versus consistent players.
  • Right now the only free component of FFXtreme's 2010 Draft Kit are the player projections, which can be found here. But the good news is that I have two draft kits to give away for free - I love it when I can do this! So the first two people to e-mail me with the answer to the following trivia question will be put in touch with my buddy Smitty at FFXtreme to set up access to a free draft kit for the season. Question: Based on ESPN standard scoring, who were the top 5 fantasy tight ends for the 2009 season? It's an interesting mix of dudes if I do say so... Update: after overwhelming interest (my inbox is going nuts!), I have my two winners and will be contacting them soon. Stay tuned for more contests in the future!
  • Finally, on another 2009 stats note, FantasyPros911 charts the Top 100 Targeted WRs for Fantasy Football from last season based on a targets per game average. Just a stats refresher, particularly for those of you in PPR leagues.

AMAZING blog Sara! Well done! I see you have a link for your email address, but dont have an email client set up on my computer- could you post your email address?

Thanks Clark. I don't post my e-mail address to avoid spam as much as possible but if you hover over the "contact me" link you should see the address appear in the bar at the bottom of your browser window - it reads mailto: followed by my e-mail address. Hope that works for you!

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
