Week 9 Rankings, Start/Sit

There was a time in my life (and perhaps you're in that time of your life now), when I couldn't have cared less about playground mulch. Wouldn't have even known it was a thing. Put some dirt down below that playground and tell kids to watch out, I would have said. Bwaahahaha. Yes, "watch out" always seems to do the trick and keep em safe. Anyway, fast forward to now when we built an amazing play structure in our backyard replete with climbing wall and slide for our boys and we had to ask them to wait for weeks before using it since it lacked the requisite mulch to cushion their falls. (Note: asking a 5- and 2-year-old to not go down a tube slide day after day is asking them to do things of epic proportions. Many stuffed animals were thrown down the slide in their stead.) Of course the mulch turned out to require a retaining wall and this backyard project evolved into the most epic, bank account-crushing gift to our boys ever thus far, but I've spent a lot of time this week contemplating types and colors and quantity of playground mulch. I mean, it's a whole industry, my football friends. Amazing. But once it was all in place and my boys were wildly throwing themselves all over the play structure (and yes, we've already had one fall), I lay down on top of my beautiful new mulch and looked up at the most gorgeous red-leafed autumnal scene. And gave thanks for the pain the ass that this whole backyard project has been. Since here I am in good health with happy boys and time to mull over mulch and blog about football. And you, whatever else you have going on in your life, you are free to sit here and read this. So let's all get Thanksgiving-y and give thanks to whatever/whomever you want for that luxury.

But really, now I'm off my thankfulness reminder mode - you're here for the start/sits aren't you? Or maybe the rankings or IDP info? So here you go:

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

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
