Kick it up a notch: Week 12

Happy Thursday. Brace yourselves, there are going to be several posts going up on FFLibrarian over the next few days. Let's kick things off (ha!) with a look at kickers for Week 12 with a guest post from Bob.

Whew, Week 11 was a tough week for the projections. It was a down week overall for PKs, maybe the weather had something to do with that. If you owned some of the high % owned teams you did pretty well averaging 10.2. But if you started one of the two teams I mentioned as temper expectations, you did best, with Parkey and Crosby. The top three scorers were owned in very few teams so most didn’t benefit with the outputs.

But I won’t dwell on my demise last week and look toward a comeback for week 12. (Sorry about that Forbath recommendation…)  Here’s the Week 12 analysis.

Only one highly owned kicker, Suisham, is on a Bye. 

I really like Cairo Santos this week, against a generous OAK team that is playing good pass defense. So expect some of those grinding KC drives with the RBs to stall in the redzone and provide opportunities for FGs.

Robbie Gould should see a lot of opportunities in an arena that could be pretty cold weather wise again. TB is generous to PKs and CHI has had problems finishing drives. 

Buf is going against the unpredictable Jets, and this could be a big defensive battle with both teams taking the points when they can get them. Pick Carpenter as a quality kicker at home in a game of opportunities.

Cleveland’s defense is doing a great job especially against the pass, so they should see an ample amount of possessions and drives that fall short of the end zone. Cundiff makes a sneaky start this week.

And on to the flyer. Just as Robbie Gould will benefit from a low scoring affair, so too will Patrick Murray. He is only owned in 1% of leagues?! He’s a decent kicker against the #1 team in giving up PK pts.

So that’s it for Week 12, if you  don’t own one of the 8 highly owned PKs this week consider the following as starts, in the following order: Santos, Gould, Carpenter, Cundiff, and Murray.

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
