Trent Green, Mock Drafts, and the Stellar Foot of Mason Crosby

It's official. Fantasy Football 2007 is near. This morning the commish of two of my leagues sent out the "click here to join the league" e-mail and I'm so ready. Let the domination begin. The following are a random assortment of fantasy items that caught my attention.

1. The rest of Fabiano's offseason review is here - NFC North, NFC South, NFC West. For the other reviews, check out this earlier Fantasy Football Librarian blog posting.

2. Still wondering about the fantasy implications of Trent Green moving to Miami - read on with Fanball.com's Greener Pastures.

3. Or maybe you're wondering how your draft would go if today was Draft Day? Check out The Huddle's Mock Draft #2.

4. Ahh the kicker. I have won and lost match-ups thanks to the freakin' kicker...so here you have it, the 2007 fantasy kicker rankings from ProFantasySports.com. As a Boulder girl, I'd like to point out the awesomeness of Mason Crosby [photo: CU Athletics Dept]. This man is amazing at what he does. Last year I went to the annual Univ of Colorado/Colorado State Univ game at Invesco Field. The best part of the game? Watching Mason Crosby kick a 61-yarder like he'd done it a million times (probably had) was a spectacular thing. Technically, that FG didn't count since CSU apparently called a time out pre-snap; when Crosby attempted the kick again, it missed to the left. But this man is amazing and will be taking over at Green Bay this fall.

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

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
