First FA/waiver suggestions of 2011

I realized recently that I haven't done nearly enough promotion of my annual accuracy contest that I run in conjunction with the FSTA and a site called The Most Credible. As you all probably know by now, for several years I've been comparing experts' preseason positional rankings with end-of-the-season rankings, and I crown one site the most accurate for the season. The reigning champ are the Bruno Boys for preseason rankings and Draft Sharks for preseason projections. This contest is open to all in the fantasy football industry who publish positional rankings - all sites have to do is just submit their rankings to me as outlined in the contest link above, so encourage your favorite sites to participate!

To the linkage:
  • Speaking of rankings, take a look at the FF Geek Blog's 2011 Preseason fantasy football rankings, which are divided up by position.
  • There's been much hoopla over the Arian Foster situation - catch up here with Roto Arcade's review of it all - and while it seems to have basically quieted down, I do think that every Foster owner out there can cover their back with a little Ben Tate, who seems most likely to fill in if Foster misses any major amount of time.
  • In other big news, rest easy Chris Johnson owners: the deal is done
  • I just snagged Matthew Stafford in a dynasty league draft last night. How he was unrostered, I have no clue. But I'm feeling pretty good about that move...Stafford has been shining in the preseason. For more on Stafford and others from the Preseason 3 games, see the Fifth Down's Preseason Week 3 Recap.
  • Other QBs that are making waves are discussed in Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football Quarterbacks: Rising Stars
  • Already done drafting for the season?'s The Feeding Frenzy looks at guys who might have gone undrafted in your league but that are worthy of consideration if you're feeling some draft remorse.
  • continues with more great analysis from the FF experts out there - this time 5 experts take a look at which top RB, WR, and QB Will Underperform in 2011.
Enjoy tonight's games...and happy September! The season is almost here, my friends - one more week to go!

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
