Big draft weekend ahead!

Oh readers, I'm rolling into the long weekend with a gigantic ol' cold. Hit me like a ton of bricks this morning when I woke up and I've just been sniffling and sneezing my way through the day, trying to get these links up but losing focus in between glasses of Emergen-C, tea, and OJ. So much liquid to consume, so little time. But this is a huge drafting weekend and I know you're all looking for that extra edge for draft day, so let's get right to it:
  • With nearly all the preseason games in the books, it's a great time to take a look at some of the players who have been the talk of the fantasy town...but perhaps aren't worth it in Beware the Preseason Hype.
  • Some more guys that come with major red flags are listed in's 2011 Fantasy Football Busts. Overlook the fact that they initially have Hillis down as a Bronco. Just 1 Bronco per bust list, please. 
  • It's also time for Matthew Berry's annual ten lists of 10. If you haven't read this piece before, just jump on in since it's basically a smattering of random but helpful fantasy thoughts.
  • You guys know how I love look at rankings, so you can imagine how much I enjoyed Rotoworld's Abusing the pre-draft rankings, which looks at the default rankings that you'll find in Yahoo, CBS, and ESPN's draft rooms, and zeroes in on which players you can snag for a bargain and which are overvalued. 
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru makes an interesting point about Julio Jones - his rookie status plus a tough first 5 weeks might have Jones owners ready to trade a few weeks in...perhaps just before he'll start putting up some nice numbers.  
  • USA Today just released their updated cheat sheets, courtesy of Roger Rotter.
  • Yahoo's Brad Evans reveals his All-Man Crush team including his Most Valuable Crush of the season.
  • chronicles how your draft might go whether you pick a QB in round 1 or not until round 7 in Target your QB late and win.

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
