Friend and fantasy madness

It's visiting season here in Brooklyn: friends of ours from our Boulder, CO days swung through NYC during an east coast road trip so we've spent the past few nights happy houring it up with them, and now I've got a good friend from college in town this weekend. It's great to have friends around, gotta love being surrounded by such fun company. Fortunately they all have a great deal of respect for the need to post to FFLibrarian, so I've got a post full of great links for you today:
  • I sound like a broken record when I talk about what Jay Clemons pulls together in SI's latest Fantasy Clicks, but every time I read it I really am impressed that Jay has bundled so much fantasy intensity into one post. I guarantee you'll find value in this sucker with some highlights being: 1) a flow chart of sorts that guide you in your first 5 picks depending on which draft slot you've landed and 2) an in-depth review of drafting from the 6th slot and 3) RB tiers. I'm such a tiers lover.
  • I've got two articles from the Fifth Down for you today - they are absolutely cranking out material from the writers and I'm loving it.
  • If you already know that you're sitting in the cat bird seat with the #1 overall draft pick in your league, you might be wondering which player to snag - no worries, FFXtreme has you covered with Pick Number One: Johnson, Peterson, Rice, or Jones-Drew?
  • Now to a few articles with a detailed look at specific players:
    • It's no secret that I (and many others) have a fantasy crush on Jermichael Finley. adds their two cents in Maturing Finley could make big fantasy leap
    • Kenny "Question Mark" Britt is living up to his nickname yet again with the uncertainty of how/when to draft this dude come draft day. Rotoworld's What to do with Britt the backup talks about the latest camp news on Britt and how that might tweak his ADP.
    • You guys must know that the Elvis Dumervil news is absolutely killing me...oh my poor Broncos. It's going to be a tough, tough season ahead my friends. 
  • Razzball has been taking a look at strength of schedule issues lately and their latest is out: Strength of pass defense, 2010 schedule. Gotta say I usually get a good chuckle going or a smile at the very least when reading Razzball; definitely an entertaining site, which adds to their appeal in my book. 
  • Yahoo's Roto Arcade tackles IDP rankings - again, lots of tiers here so gotta love it.
  • Finally, the tiers keep coming along with other helpful information in's 2010 Draft Prep: How to address tight ends.
Finally, I've heard from so many of you who are interested in playing in the FFLibrarian monster league and I'll get back to each of you this weekend - but if you haven't heard from me yet, you are on the wait list and I'll let you know how deep into the list you are. Thanks for such enthusiasm and perhaps next year I'll have a bit more time to get a second league going!

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
