Get your rankings, sleepers and more

Here's hoping you all had a nice 4th of July. We spent a good chunk of time at the pool where a friend pointed out she had never seen our son laugh like he does in the water. Sounds like we've got a little dolphin on our hands.

I encountered a small hitch in my accuracy analysis so let's just say that I'll have something up in the next few weeks, though I hope it will be long before then. I should probably stop making promises about its delivery date and jump right to today's links:
  • Take a look at a couple of new rankings:
  • I've got several strategy type articles for you guys:
    • takes a look at 2 different drafting strategies for those drafting from the 8th pick spot, and which players you might want to target for the first six rounds in Plan by Position, Not by Player.
    • If you're in an auction league, you may want to take a look at's The Art of the Auction - I'm linking you to Part 4 since you can link over to Parts 1-3 from here. PFF asks a handful of experts for their take on some crucial auction questions.
  • reviews wide receivers from 2011 who really tanked during the second half of the season in Fading Heroes, as well as those who really picked up steam as the season went along in Late-Season Bloomers.
  • pulled together an interesting look at pass targets from 2011 to see how each team diversified their targets by position - Pass target distribution by position (2011).
  • Read up on reasons to like Lance Kendricks, Doug Baldwin, Jeremy Kerley, Rob Housler, and Daniel Thomas in's Second Year/Second Tier Fantasy Gems for 2012.
  • Finally, has The Top 13 Free Fantasy Football Draft Tools You Must Use. You'll see a lot of familiar resources here if you're a long-time reader but I love having these calculators, charts, and other tools all listed in one place.

Amazing, awesome, useful links! Thank you! Your blog really gets my fantasy gears turning every year.

Know what I would love to see? Who projected stats the best last year (may the last few years) out of the 4 main projection guys over at footballguys(dot)com. Dodds, Henry, Woods and Tremblay all have my great respect, but there are a few players they seem to disagree on by more than a little bit.

For example, Andrew Luck ranges from QB14 to QB25. I'm in a 12 team, 2QB league. Do I take Luck? FootballGuys is split, but I want to know which decision the more accurate guys are making.

Just an idea! Thanks!

(If you've got the individual guys' projections saved from years past and you want to send 'em to me, I could crunch that for you)

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
