Big Friday: draft results, PPR rankings and more

Greetings, fantasy football fans. Today is a lovely day here in NYC - cooler and far more bearable for those of us who are a mere 6 weeks from delivering a child; plus I'm relishing the fact that my husband is such a smarty pants that he was quoted on NPR this morning; and of course...Preseason Week 1 has officially arrived! I hope you all enjoyed the games last night and are gearing up for 3 more games this evening.

To get you all ready for the weekend, let's scope out some links for this fine Friday:
  • Many of you have asked if I'll be expanding the average rankings position spreadsheet that I pull together each year to include PPR rankings. I'll take a look around and see if there are enough Top 100 PPR rankings to create something helpful or not, though one that I would definitely include is's Our Top 200 for PPR Leagues.
  • Also on the rankings front, Rotoworld continues to tweak the rankings in their draft guide and Shaking up the Rankings on Pancake Blocks reviews some of the latest player ups and downs.
  • When I saw the name of's latest article, Stat-a-Palooza, I knew it would be some stats-alicious article but had no clue what a stats dump it would be. Read up for some serious numbers, mostly from the 2009 season.
  • SI's Fantasy Clicks does a nice job of giving the basics (and of course some advice) on survivor pools - plus some auction draft results from a real draft that Jay Clemons participated in recently. Gotta say I appreciate that he's upfront about this not being his best draft - equally helpful to see those sorts of draft results, no?
  • For more on the auction draft results front (as well as the PPR front) see Razzball's PPR Auction Mock Draft and see which team you think was the big winner.
  • Looks like is cranking out new features yet again this year - take a look at their 2010 Power Projector, which includes player projections from both Dave and Jamey at CBS, plus Accuscore's projections, all wrapped up in an average if that's up your alley. They'll be updating this feature on a weekly basis to give you an assist in making weekly start/sit decisions.
That's all for now - remember I'll be updating that average rankings position spreadsheet over the weekend so check back on the google docs version for some of the tweaks!

Last year you turned me on to a great service that rates other websites accuracy on a weekly basis by position. I want to use them again but can not remember the name.

BUMP for some PPR aggregate/average rankings. Keep up the good work.

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
