R.I.P. Oh Google

One common question in our household over the past week or so: why didn't the DVR grab this week's Sports Show with Norm MacDonald? Gregg Rosenthal of Rotoworld/Pro Football Talk fame answered this for us in a recent tweet, noting that the show has been cancelled (invoking sad Bill Cosby now...), and I must say I'm sad to see it go. I didn't really envision myself looking forward to it each week as much as I did, but I'm not gonna lie, there were some really funny nuggets in there. If you haven't seen the show, I'll leave you with a clip (a nod to my husband since I know he loves this one...) though I think my favorite segments were inevitably What the H? and Oh Google.

On to football:
  • Read up on why's Cory Bonini isn't loving Adrian Peterson in Why I'm not down with All Day.
  • Are you in a keeper league and faced with some decisions about which players to keep this season? Turn to's Who Not to Keep for some thoughts on players you might be hemming and hawing over. 
  • The Sablich Brothers are back on the Times' Fifth Down blog with their Fantasy First Take: Quarterbacks with a ranking of the 2011 top 10 QBs. 
  • For more rankings, turn to FantasyFootballTrader's re-draft rankings for 2011, which includes auction values.
  • has a team-by-team breakdown of how the 2011 schedule (assuming it's a standard year) will affect each team's fantasy option - What you need to know about the 2011 schedule.
  • Fantasy Douche's Running Backs and Advanced Red Zone Stats takes a look at 2010's RBs to see who was productive at the goal line and who was not. Includes a few write ups and a nice, juicy chart. Update: so sorry, the article is under a paywall now; register to read or skip ahead to the next link here. Update on the update: nevermind, the Fantasy Douche is awesome enough to give us all access again!
  • Speaking of charts, this isn't fantasy-focused at all but I found's play-by-play look at NFL games for the past several years rather visually interesting; thought you all might enjoy poking around.
  • Finally, this is also neither here nor there but I've had several friends and family members refer me to the SI article on the Alabama tornado, noting that it's one of the best articles they've read in a long, long time. I'm off to finally check it out while our tiny tot is taking his morning nap, and wanted to make sure you've all seen it, too.

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
