Week 15 Waiver Wire and Mug Club

Looking for some advice for your lineup as Week 15 quickly approaches? While I definitely support the ol' dance-with-them-that-brung-you mentality, I also think the waiver wire could pose some very interesting options for those of you desperately needing to secure your place in playoffs. For example? I dropped Jason Elam last week (a spectacular kicker but with that hamstring tweak I wasn't taking any chances) and picked up Josh Scobee. Scobee went nuts and gave me something like 14 or 15 points. Even with a missed field goal. So get out there and see if there might be someone on the waivers worth picking up.

And on another note, tonight at the Walnut Brewery in Boulder, we will be celebrating Scott and Kevin's 240th beer and thus the culmination of their membership in the Mug Club. Soon their 32 oz mugs will be sitting on the Walnut's wall, waiting to be filled for the price of a mere 20 oz mug. I've been along for the ride this whole time and must say I feel a swell of pride. (I remain happy with my choice not to do the Mug Club though - I love a good beer but the thought of trying to drink 32 oz before it gets warm is less than appealing.) So if you happen to be in Boulder tonight for happy hour, come by the Walnut and listen for a big cheer to go up from our table at beer #240.

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy!
