Oh no, Romo...get your replacement advice here!

I feel for you, Tony Romo owners. If you missed the news that Romo broke his left collarbone and could possibly be out for the season, then scope out the injury summary here. Now Romo owners I'd like to tell you a tale of my Week 7 quarterbacks. With Peyton Manning and Matt Schaub on bye and my backup (Vince Young) injured, I had some serious holes at QB this past week. I admitted on here a few days ago that I was starting Josh Freeman in one league but what I didn't admit was that I was starting Ryan Fitzpatrick in another league...against the Ravens. By all accounts, a horrific idea. And yet! Freeman and Fitzpatrick both led me to victory (the latter putting up tremendous stats) and while this might have just been a lucky week for me, I would encourage you to be a little bold and play the QB roulette each week. A little stressful but you never know when a free agent will surprise. As Matt Schauf notes in his RapidReactions article, Fitzpatrick is the only QB to throw for more than 1 TD in each game this season. Not too shabby, my friends, not too shabby.

Sara, I can't duplicate your magic of last season, but hopefully I can go wire to wire as you did last year. Thanks for the mention!

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

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.

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
