FF links for the weekend

Wow, the football season is rolling now. I've spent some of today with last night's preseason games on in the background (I know, it's only the preseason but I can't help it!) and it really makes me realize how quickly the summer is coming to a close. It's crunch time, baby, time to get your prep in gear if you haven't done so already. Take a look at a handful of links below for advice:
  • First up, let's take a look at some items related to last night or the preseason in general:
  • Matthew Berry's Loves and Hates for 2012 - always a good read in my book.
  • I've got a couple of mock drafts for you:
    • delights in the riches one can find in a 10-team draft in this PPR mock draft. 
    • Rotoworld meanwhile goes for the 14-team angle in an In-Progress Fantasy FB Draft that is currently closing out the 5th round.
  • Yesterday I asked if you all are still interested in having me create a consensus top 100 ranking from 10 expert sites out there and I've heard you loud and clear - I'll keep it up. It might take me a week or so to pull together but it's coming. In the meantime, those of you who are in auction leagues might really enjoy what has pulled together: Consensus Auction Values pulled from 4 sources (though that number may grow as more become available). 
  • While we're talking about, you guys should know about two other items they're offering: 1. they're another excellent pit stop for links out to fantasy advice for days when I'm slow to post and 2. they've finagled a deal with some awesome pay sites like Footballguys and Rotowire to offer some of their paid content for free on the FP site. Here's a link to's From the Gut.
  • Let's talk players with sleeper/breakout/rising star potential. Keep in mind that many of these were written before the first week of preseason games kicked off but I find them to still be on target for the most part:
  • The Fifth Down has a look at some young RBs and determines which are worth relying upon for the 2012 season (and beyond) in Predicting Careers for Second-Year Backs.
  • IDPers, I haven't forgotten about you. has a look at some old dudes that can still contribute greatly this season in Gray beard IDP options that are fantasy gold

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. Spiller, Beanie Wells, Ronnie Brown WR Start: Santana Moss, Legedu Naanee, Malcolm Floyd, Mike Williams (TB), Dez Bryant Sit: Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree TE Start: Chris Cooley, Todd Heap, John Carlson, Jermichael Finley Sit: Jermaine Gresham, Owen Daniels, Tony Scheffler, Jeremy Shockey, Bo Scaife Kicker Start: La

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
