Mid-week draft prep

Based on my twitter feed, it seems as though the football world is ablaze with Peyton and Kerry Collins news. Catch up if you haven't already heard and, yes, I'm in the camp that thinks this is not great news but probably thanks to the Peyton-awe that's been drilled into me by my dear Peyton-worshiping husband, I don't think this is worth too much hemming and hawing. By the way, how is Collins only 38? Seems like he ought to have at least a decade on me minimum. Also by the way, Peyton has 5-month-old twins. Dang if that isn't a lot going on in the ol' Manning house.

Lots of other stuff going on:
Fireplace critter update: my husband wisely/thoughtfully snuck a peek into the fireplace while I was a good 30 feet away and oblivious to his actions. Turns out it was just a (now) dead gigantic bug. The south certainly produces large bugs; years in Brooklyn and Colorado never produced anything this large and seemingly least until it's semi-unfortunate demise in the fireplace. Next up on the hooray-I-own-an-ancient-home-with-problems list: leaky tub faucet (I swear I'm watching dollar bills sink down the drain every time I'm in the bathroom) and gutters that are so beyond overgrown with plants and debris that they shall soon be dubbed The Forest that Sits on the Bottom of Our Roof. No complaints though really, I swear. Yesterday as our son rammed his toy train into the wall for the billionth time (cackling and babbling at volumes I thought impossible for a small child), with all his toys hidden inside said train spilling out all over the wood floors and causing a monstrous racket, I thought, thank God we no longer have downstairs neighbors who would want to claw their ears off by now.

Boy Sara, you were right about Athlon's Sleeper/Busts...but "smattering" is way over-stating it when they're only three and the sleepers are at a 10 to 1 to sum up Athlon's take--if you're not a bust, you've got to be a sleeper! Keep up the always great work!

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.

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
