First start/sit list of the 2012 season

Dudes (and fellow ladies)! I am genuinely excited to let you all know that I expect to report the results of my multi-year accuracy competition tomorrow. That's right...finally. I'll wrap up the analysis tonight and get my thoughts together into a coherent post. Come on back tomorrow for the results but for now, here are a few quick links:
  • has some advice on guys you might want to have in the back of your mind as waiver wire adds in 20 players to add in-season. Not gonna lie, I hate that they start a video immediately upon opening this link - just a heads up for those of you at work or elsewhere trying to keep a low fantasy profile. 
  • Take a look at some of the latest news and notes in Roto Arcade's Falling Andre, rising Cobb and sleepy Lions.
  • I probably need to step off my Doug Baldwin love but Scott Engel's article Seahawks WRs can be fantasy gems is not only supportive of Baldwin in a PPR environment, but might be the only pro-Seattle perspective I've seen from Seattle all pre-season.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed Dynasty League Football's Who is Bryce Brown? if for nothing else than the tale of the "total circus" that seems to have been his entire college recruitment/career. Now he's in Philly and DLF has reason to be excited about him in dynasty leagues.
  • SI has their NFL fantasy 2012 Top 200 ranking up as does Juan Elway, a new site from a writer previously with TOFantasySports.
  • Check out KFFL's Risky draft picks for a handful of guys you might want to be cautious about on draft day. 
  • Let's talk defense:
  • Finally, last but not least, Draft Calc has their Start/Bench list for Week 1 up already, which includes a handful of projections for each matchup as well as some upside, risky, and monster starts. Of course we're over a month out from Week 1 but who doesn't love seeing this?

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
