I'm not the only librarian out there...

...who loves fantasy football. And perhaps more importantly, my fellow librarian-also-blogger understands why I think my research/library background aids in unearthing helpful fantasy football info. For those interested in the deep, dark librarian-ish details, check out the Research Quest blog that declared fantasy sports the national sport of librarians. Yes, a national sport for librarians. Nice work, Paul.

For those wanting more fantasy football info and less library talk, don't worry, I've got you covered.
1. Rotoworld's Evan Silva gives valuable QB drafting advice, particularly for those of you who end up not taking a top QB...Evan's advice? Hold out and pair up some later round QBs as your strategy for winning. Interesting stuff in Targeting Mid-Round QBs.

2. A free draft guide? Wait, that actually exists these days? Yes, it is chock full o' info - see the Fox Fantasy Draft Guide for rankings, sleepers, busts, and team reports.

3. Read up on the Chester Taylor vs Adrian Peterson battle for as the Vikings #1 RB at SI's Camp Battles: Minnesota RB [photo: Ted S. Warren, AP].

Excellent resource. I'm looking forward digging through your site.

Would you be interested in a league of librarians? You're probably in a bunch, but my post on the ALA list serve generated 10 people interested in joining a league.

Thanks for the link.

My wife is a librarian and I thought about telling her about your blog...but the fantasy football world is mine and I don't know what I would do if Fantasy Football Lee and Married Lee's worlds collided. Selfish...I know.
Very amusing, Lee. And I'm intrigued. How do you keep your worlds from colliding every Sunday during the fall? I turn into such a stats monger, NFL news fiend, and complete fantasy football nut in the fall that there is really no separating it from the rest of me. Yes, it's sad. I applaud you for having some separation from FF! Fortunately my husband also plays FF and gets this - while he doesn't jump out of bed on Sunday mornings to run to the computer/tv like me, he isn't staring at me with a look of total confusion and amazement like my mom and sister do.
Hi Paul - Enjoy perusing the site and I'd love to hear of any favorite places you have for getting your FF research done. I am definitely reaching my saturation point for FF leagues, but I am still interested in joining up with a bunch of librarians. How about this - if you need someone to balance off the league numbers, let me know, otherwise I'll just hope for updates on which librarian is dominating every once in awhile. How does that sound?

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
