Thanks to those 500+ of you that participated in the weekly start/sit competition with FantasyPros.com - you smarties locked us into 3rd place overall with an impressive performance last week. The dudes at FP let me know that out of the 3300+ submissions they had last week, only 14 got all of their 9 questions right last week. Hope those 14 were all FFLibrarian readers!
Now let's head on over to this week's fantasy brain food:
- Mid-week start/sit suggestions:
- Roto Arcade's Flames: Go ahead, fall in love with the PT bruiser all over again
- Fantasy Football Xtreme's Week 8: Start and Bench 2011 - includes a little trade advice as well
- Pigskin Addiction's Studs and Duds
- WalterFootball.com's Start em, Sit em
- SportsGrumblings.com's The Fire Sale for sneaky starts and a look at those whose value is going up/down
- FFToolbox.com's Week 8: Sit Em
- FantasySharks.com's Start/Bench List Week 8
- Week 8 rankings/projections:
- KFFL.com's WR - Week 8 PPR rankings - other positions available off this link
- Fleaflicker's Week 8 2011 Projections
- Pyromaniac.com's Player Rankings for Week 8
- Speaking of rankings, if you're a rankings-lover, I highly recommend you just go ahead and bookmark Fantasy Rundown. I've linked to it before but just a reminder you don't want to miss out on their weekly ranking updates.
- We all know that injuries decimated a ton of fantasy teams in Week 7 - ESPN's Stephania Bell has an injury blog that will be a great resource if you're monitoring injuries to any of your key players.
- Those of you in deep leagues or who are playing with major hotshots should turn to ProFootballFocus.com's Deep League Searching for names that you might want to add to your squad. Or head on over to Rotoworld's Deep League vs. Shallow League.
- Or turn to trades to make your team stronger - and Razzball.com's Week 8: Buy Low, Sell High is a good spot for in-depth trade value advice.
- Another link to check out is CBSSports.com's Last Chance Saloon, which gives suggestions on what to do with those players that have really let you down thus far.
- Those of you in 2-QB leagues will want to check out RotoExperts.com's Alex's Audibles for some general QB thoughts.
