The Fantasy Buffet

The fantasy buffet for the day:

In Offseason Movement: QBs, FFToday provides some good fantasy insight on QBs that have shifted teams in the offseason - Trent Green, Matt Schaub, and Brad Johnson to name a few.

If you're in need of some fantasy prognistication for the 2007 season, have no fear. There are several options. First, check out FantasySharks.com's Boom or Bust 2007 for QBs, RBs, and WRs...personally, I appreciate the fact that several Broncos made the Boom list. Or try TheHuddle.com's 10 Players to Avoid in This Year's Fantasy Draft. From ProFantasySports.com there's A Few Names Not to Be Ignored, which lays out some sleeper options; some of these are more obvious picks than others. Again, love the Broncos sleeper TE pick with Tony Scheffler [photo: Cliff Grassmick, Daily Camera]. Saw him at training camp last August and even then he looked like he had some serious potential for connecting with Cutler - I can only imagine how he has benefited from a year in the pros.

Cutler's going to be a stud, and I like your TE pick a lot. Feel free to check out my tips at my the blog I'm trying to get going...
http://tjifantasysports.blogspot.com Any advice for someone new to the trade? I'm just trying to drive traffic there to get it off the ground.
Love your blog, by the way. Thanks.
Thanks, TJI - I'll be keeping an eye on your blog. Nice work.

Driving traffic to your blog is something that I'm really not an expert in - I do know you can put down a lot of cash to get more traffic. Not something I'm interested in doing at this time, personally, so I can't help you with that aspect. But as for free ideas, to me, most of it is just time. The more blog entries you post, the more traffic you should get. Particularly if you're using lingo or catch phrases that people are googling. For example, instead of just saying, "here are the RB rankings" if you spell it out into "here are the 2007 fantasy football RB rankings" you're more likely to be catering to more google/yahoo searches. If you set up Google Analytics, Site Meter, or any other tracker on your site, you can figure out what search engine phrases are being used to access your blog and then use that as a guide.

I did add this blog to a bunch of different blog listings, including football-specific and sports blogs. Not sure that has made an difference but it's worth a try. I also nominated myself for kicks for the best sports blog on weblog awards and was surprised at the number of hits I got off of that nomination page. I really think it's all so hit or miss sometimes.

Hope that's not too elementary and of some help to you.

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
