Data crunching for the playoffs

Greetings fantasy footballers. Hope you all have been slowly getting back into your groove after the holiday weekend. I've got some serious holiday excitement building up in our house as our 4-year-old has totally and completely bought into this one-of-Santa's-elves-came-down-from-the-North-Pole-to-bring-you-a-tiny-gift-in-your-advent-calendar-each-day thing that we're doing in our house. This was initiated by my mom and she supplies all the little gifts (we're talking stickers, candy canes, dollar store type stuff here) and my only job is to remember to put the gift in the advent calendar the night before. Easy enough but last night? Totally forgot. So this morning, my older son goes running downstairs to open up December 4th's door and while I'm changing his little brother, I hear screeches from downstairs about how the elf forgot to bring him something. $!%#. I think I played it off well enough by telling him the elf left me a note that the gift was too heavy for him to carry and could I get it for him in the morning....right, right. Bets on how long it will take before I fail at this? And specific suggestions on how to conclude this gift bonanza with a lesson in giving to the less fortunate? Am hoping to raise a boy of generous spirit here.

Anyway, I've got some general playoffs prep and specific Week 14 prep for you this morning. Later today I think we'll have some start/sit links for you, too, so come on back for more.

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
