Unexpected developments

Well I can officially report that Hurricane Earl hasn't quite panned out as expected here in Brooklyn. As in a total lack of rain (so far) and anything more than a casual breeze (so far). Along with most of the eastern seaboard, I was all set for a rather different day of weather. I'll call that a very good thing, just unexpected. Pretty sure Montario Hardesty, LenDale White, Byron Leftwich, and Kris Brown are all well aware of that I-was-expecting-something-else feeling...there's lots of news being churned out these days between injury reports and roster cuts. Stay on top of it all with sites like Rotoworld, my personal favorite for news.

As you all get ready for the long weekend, hopefully these links will help out with any last minute draft prep you might need to do. In just a few days we'll be looking at start/sit recommendations for Week 1 - wow, time is flying!
  • Rotoprofessor's final rankings are up - each of the rankings comes with some player observations/ranking notes as seen here with the top 60 WRs.
  • Or scope out Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy's 2010 Player Rankings and Projections - both PPR and non-PPR rankings are available here.
  • Roto Arcade's ADP Progress Report reflects a lot of ADP changes that I've seen live and in person during recent drafts. I can see the rest of you are demonstrating your Gaffney love, too. Awesome. 
  • Reasons to still keep Julian Edelman on your radar this season from USA Today's Fantasy Joe in The slot: Julian Edelman provides value even if Wes Welker stays healthy.
  • Or for other specific player insight, see's Catch these two on the way up that focuses on Mike Sims-Walker and Michael Crabtree in particular.
  • There have been quite a few position battles playing out over training camp and the preseason games. Rotoworld's Adam Levitan takes a look at 25 big battles noting who the winner is and who you might want to focus on in drafts.
  • I'll be honest, I haven't really been concentrating on RB handcuffs during drafts this year. Perhaps that will be my demise. So be more prepared than I have been and read Football Jabber's Top Five Backup Running Backs to Draft.
If I can find time this weekend to get another post up, I will. Otherwise enjoy your Labor Day weekends and the start of college football...I for one can't wait to watch my Northwestern Wildcats beat up on Vandy tomorrow (Go Cats!).

Along the lines of the 25 position battles that you linked (thanks), if you see a summary depth chart (QB, WR, RB, & TE) for each team after the big cut day today, would you include it in a future post?

Thanks and happy Labor Day weekend to you as well. I married a Vandy grad so I can't comment on the Wildcats.

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
