All the waiver advice you'll ever need

You know it's going to be a good day when you're going to the pediatrician not once but twice. I know, I know, I'm sounding like a broken record these days with all my talk about sick babies, but hey it's 10 AM and we've already knocked off one trip to the doc for the day and have one sinus infection diagnosed. Later today we just go back to chat with a nutritionist to talk about ways to help beef up our lean little dude since he's tipping the scales at roughly the 1st percentile for weight. Now since this is all stuff that meant absolutely nothing to me pre-baby, I think it's time to carry on and head straight to today's football linkage.

I just pulled off a couple trades in both of my leagues. Thoughts?

League 1
Gave: Josh Freeman and Jahvid Best
Got: Philip Rivers and Devin Hester

(Very proud of myself for getting Rivers to give me the dynamic duo of starting both Drew Brees and Philip Rivers in my 2 QB slots especially w/o sacrificing too much in my solid RB core of MJD, Arian Foster, and Darren Sproles. Devin Hester was a last minute add on on his part (no clue why when I was just asking for Rivers), but I'll end up dropping Hester for Lance Moore who is surprisingly still a FA).

League 2
Gave: Tim Hightower and Dexter McCluster
Got: DeSean Jackson and Benjarvis Green-Ellis

(I needed a better WR than McCluster when I lost Kenny Britt so I figured I'd sell high on McCluster to buy low on Jackson who I think will turn it around. I can live without Hightower when I still have MJD, Fred Jackson and Blount, but Green-Ellis helps compensate a little).

I feel ya with trying to put weight on your child. My 20 month old is a slender fella. We try to fatten him up a bit, but his metabolism is smokin' fast. Just like his daddy.

Anyway, thanks for the all the good info. You should turn part of this into a paying gig.

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
