15 days

In a mere 15 days the first preseason game will be here - wahooooooo! I can only assume that you all are as excited as I am that a deal has been reached (as with every ESPN link, turn your volume down since a video starts ASAP). Hallelujah.

In other news, I just spent a glorious 2 days in Boston getting to know my 3-week-old niece - and now I'm back home and packing/cleaning like a hurricane since we're heading out of NYC for good on Wednesday. I'll be on the road a fair amount over the next week but since this is such a huge week with FA news and such, I'll do my best to keep the posts coming.

There's lots of news a.k.a. rumors about the NFL's timeline this week, but it's looking like full free agency begins at 6 PM on Friday, so gear up, readers. So much good stuff coming your way in a narrow time frame. It's like Christmas squared.
  • It's Draft Day Manifesto time - love him or hate him, head on over to Matthew Berry's early season thoughts, plus a bonus ESPN video.
  •'s Chet Gresham shares some of his draft strategies on Fan Duel in Fantasy Football 2011: Draft Strategy Tips to Live By. I'm sure you'll agree with some suggestions, disagree with others, but it's a good read to get your mind right for drafting season.
  • I had a request for more 2-QB league rankings - working on it but in the meantime, those of you in leagues with 2 QBs should check out this recent 2-QB Forum Mock from for some suggestions on where players will go. Note the mock comes with commentary, too, for each of the 16 rounds.
  • keeps the rankings rolling, this time with his top 25 QBs in 2011 Fantasy Football QB Rankings.
  • More rankings, this time a look at the top team DSTs from - There's no denying 3-4 powerhouses.
  • And if you're jonesing for as many rankings as your brain can possibly absorb (and then some), bookmark Fantasy Rundown. They do a great job of updating rankings from a variety of sources and noting the date of the update. Very helpful site.
  • I love Roto Arcade - one of my favorite fantasy sites out there. I've been anxiously awaiting the day that they start to shift their focus toward football and we're getting closer! Their Spin Doctors series where they pit two players against each for fantasy domination is up and running with a comparison of Jamaal Charles vs. Chris Johnson.

Love the 2QB info, keep it coming! While my league uses an OP slot, most use a QB in that spot anyway. Once you play in that format, you never want to go back. Adds so much more strategy and possibilities for team-building.

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.

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
