Pickemfirst giveaway and Week 1 advice

Tomorrow. Tomorrow is the big day! I got a little giddy last night looking at all of the start/sit links that are pouring in...I absolutely adore this time of year and I hope you all do as well. Tomorrow is a full day for me - I'm actually doing nothing but posting on here and gathering submissions/rankings from sites participating in our preseason accuracy challenge. And baking banana bread due to an overflux of bananas in our house. But that's neither here nor there: mostly I'll be fantasy footballing. Can't wait.

First up, if you're not using Pickemfirst, you're missing out. I've gushed over this free product before and I'll do it again - after you've installed their handy tool and easily set it up to access your team/league rosters, if you're reading one of these waiver wire articles or injury news, a little icon will appear letting you know whether or not that player is available in your league. It's nothing short of awesome. Seriously. See it in action here. With the free version you get access to 2 of your teams but with the upgraded Pickemfirst Pro it's an unlimited number of teams - and all sorts of other cool stuff including fantasy analysis from RotoWire (which is great). So in honor of the first day of the season rapidly approaching, today I'm giving away 5 upgraded Pickemfirst Pro subscriptions to the first 5 readers I hear from (update: all subs were given away today already!) Tomorrow I'll be giving away 5 more so stay tuned.

Awesome links today. One thing that bugs me is the link to rotoworld's preseason targets list.

Walterfootball has had the same thing up for over a week and is likely where rotoworld's data came from (since they have both left out Kerry Collins). Just trying to give credit where credit is due.

Link is here:

Also, if you have any pick'em first upgrades left I'll take one ;)

Hey Sara, thanks as usual for the great links!
Down to business though...
I need 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex.
Sjax, ray ray, Bjacobs, Wayne, britt, S. Johnson , aj green.

Everyone is welcome to give an opinion.
I am actually surprised that we don't have more start/ sit questions in the comment section. I would think that this is a great place to get advice, as I honestly believe that only serious FF players come here.

I'm on your site everyday, so I will give my opinion as other people figure out their lineups.
Here's hopin!

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

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
