This Week's 3 TDs go to...Best & McCoy!

Hmm, I could get down with a fantasy football world where every week there's some outstanding young whippersnapper (as my grandpa really and truly used to say) that busts out with 3 TDs. Sadly I seem to have been on the receiving end of the Best and McCoy destruction this week as most of my opponents seemed to somehow have one of the two guys, but since I already know I beat my FF nemesis this week, nothing seems to be fazing me. (Update: thanks to a helpful twitter dude for the heads up that I completely glossed over Snelling and his 3 excuses but I blame it on my status as a Turner owner and needing to block out Snelling's awesomeness!)

For those of you facing your nemeses in Week 3 or who just really like to win all the time (that would be most of us, no?), let's get to today's advice:
  • There are a bunch of waiver wire articles popping up already:
    •'s Week Three Waiver Wire Pickups
    • does a great job with addressing a lot of popular names and letting you know if and where the player is an appropriate pickup in Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em - Week 2.
    • The Hazean's Early Week 2 Waiver Wire Thoughts
    • Having been a fairly big Jacoby Jones fan come draft day, I'm intrigued with how the Kevin Walter/Jacoby Jones situation might play out this season.'s Fantasy Ticker: Week Three has a little love for Walter this week. 
    •'s Waivering Pickups - it's interesting to see a variety of opinions on GB's James Jones out there. No one seems super psyched about him yet (except me, again, on draft day...apparently J. Jones dudes were up my alley this year!) but Razzball smartly points out that Jones saw 7 targets compared to Jennings and Driver (5 each) and advises keeping an eye on this guy. Couldn't agree more. 
    • Bruno Boys' Week 3 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire - Pick Them Up
    • FFManiaxs' Week Three Waiver Wire - as a Michael Turner owner I'm keeping an eye on the Turner/Snelling situation but be sure to check in on Turner's status (doesn't sound serious) before using a possibly precious waiver wire grab for Snelling. That said, could be great to have Snelling as insurance for the rest of the season.
    • For the IDPers in the room we've got Monk's IDP Week 3 Waiver Wire Pick Ups
  • If you're looking for some recaps of the weekends games, take a look at Yahoo's Roto Arcade's Sunday Scene, Week 2: It's a Bear market; Cutler stars in win.
  • Or MMQB's Three QBs steal spotlight in Week 2 has some interesting tidbits from around the league, a lovefest for Brady's good charity work, and a top 15 ranking of NFL teams (yes, you're seeing both the Chiefs and Bucs there...).
  • Keep an eye on the latest injury news with KFFL's Post-game Injury Report, which is divided up by position. Another spot to scope out on a daily basis is Rotoworld's Headlines section, which I think I mention here non-stop...but for good reason!

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
