Guest Post: Week 5 prep

We've got one more guest post for you before I return to the land of the fantasy living. Our son, Nicholas Wilson Holladay (adorable dude on the left), thanks you all for being patient. Ryan from brings us another guest post today full of links with Week 5 links - enjoy and if you've seen some new resources here that you like, be sure to let me know as I'm always open to scoping out new links.

Guest post
Greetings fantasy football world. I'm back for another guest spot while Sara is teaching her baby boy the intricacies of the West Coast Offense. 
  • We're a quarter of the way through the season and it's a buyers' market. I'm here to navigate the players you should be targeting like Joe Flacco, whose fantasy playoffs schedule is ultra soft, as well as which ones to avoid.
  • The Fantasy Football Armory won't be making fans with the Librarian recommending selling Brandon Lloyd and Eddie Royal, but with a quartet of capable WRs and the return of Knowshon Moreno, I can see the logic. 
  • FF Toolbox has a list of players to downgrade for Week 5 including Marques Colston. 
  • discusses the Marshawn Lynch traded in this week's risers and fallers article. 
  • FFToday looks at who's Moving Up and Who's Moving Down. Darren McFadden's latest injury has Michael Bush signing The Jeffersons theme. 
  • The Bruno Boys take a look at which players, like Alex Smith, should go straight to the waiver wire without passing go or collecting $200.
  • Ryan Torain is one of this week's teacher's pets in the Rotoprofessor Week 5 Start/Sit article. 
  • KFFL has Sam Bradford and others among their Week 5 Sleepers.
  • If IDP is your thing, check out Hatty's Week 5 IDP Waiver Wire Pickups.

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
