Waiver Wire Advice Week 12

As promised, the waiver wire links just keep on rollin' here at FFLibrarian. Guest writer Mike is back this week with some great suggestions for the week and plenty of links to keep you fantasy educated.

Where did the time go? Here we are with only two weeks left in most fantasy regular seasons. I can’t imagine most leagues have a whole lot left on the waiver wire, but every week there are injuries and emerging players, and this week is no different.

Jonas Gray will obviously be the most added player this week, a four TD game will do that. I will throw in my two cents on a couple players other than Gray that might make a difference for your team down the stretch.

My top player from last week’s article was Isaiah Crowell. Again, he is going to be owned in most 12-team leagues, but if he’s out there, grab him. He was somewhat surprisingly named the starter last week, but with the Browns falling behind, they had to go away from their preferred ground game, which capped Crowell’s upside. With Josh Gordon back this week, expect a more dynamic offense from Cleveland, and if Crowell gets another crack at the bulk of the carries, fireworks could ensue.

Oh and as I write this, news just broke that the Browns have waived Ben Tate. It’s Crowell time in Cleveland. Don’t drop Tate quite yet though, as there are several contending teams that could use his services.

This has been the year of the rookie wide receiver. One of the more talented rookies that hasn’t hit it big yet is Donte Moncrief of the Colts. Moncrief has inexplicably been stuck behind washed-up Hakeem Nicks on the depth chart all year, but if the Colts decide it’s time to give Moncrief a full-time role, you’ll want him on your roster. A big, fast receiver in an Andrew Luck-led offense could be a season changer for you if the stars align.

Here are the waiver links for the week:

JJ Zachariason of Numberfire tempers expectations a bit for Jonas Gray, and how would you feel about adding a potential starting receiver for the Broncos?

Adam Levitan of Rotoworld lists former waiver wire darling Tre Mason as his top running back add for the week.

Christopher Harris of ESPN has Isaiah Crowell and Jordan Matthews atop his list, and notes some intriguing speculative waiver adds as well.

Brad Evans of Yahoo likes Jonas Gray, but also some under-the-radar names.

May your Week 12 transactions be fruitful! Look me up on Twitter for any questions or feedback.

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

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
