FF Questions This Week

Since this live chat I'm doing (see the chat box on the right side) isn't foolproof and I might be offline when some of you have questions, I thought I'd post some of the questions that came across while I was gone and get my responses out there. Hope the info isn't coming too late for any of you!

Also, I am working on an IDP post for this afternoon so keep your eyes open for that. And I'll keep updating the Start/Sit and Waiver post that I put up earlier this week.

Questions that have come up this week:

1. When do you bite the bullet and git rid of Terry Glenn? I have Wes Welker and Amani Toomer available as Free Agents?
My response: Honestly, I have already dropped Glenn from my keeper league. Might be premature but if Crayton performs well in his absence, who knows how much action Glenn will see once he's healthy enough to come back. I doubt he'll be rushed back in and at 33, he's not exactly an NFL spring chicken. Not to mention the fact he just had his 2nd knee surgery in 6 weeks. Welker was certainly getting a lot of looks from Brady in Week 1 and I think they'll have a nice little chemistry going. Toomer looked pretty great in Week 1, I thought, so I'd be most excited about him...but that all depends on Eli's status. If Eli is well, I say pick up Toomer in place of Glenn.

2. Derrick Ward or Brandon Jackson?
Okay, I've seen this question 3 times now in the past 36 hours so I'm becoming an expert at answering it. I think all this comes down to is the GB defense vs the Giants defense. I would much rather run against the Giants D, so I say go with Brandon Jackson. Both are relatively untested runners, both could be kind of big question marks. But I say go with BJax and see what happens.

3. I need to start 3 WRs from the following: Marques Colston, Darrell Jackson, Ronald Curry, Vincent Jackson.
Okay, my bias for Denver is going to show here. Sure, Curry had a good week last week but can he really compete against Bly and Champ Bailey? Don't think so. Go with Colston and the Jacksons. All three of them had pretty poor performances this week but I think they'll rebound this week. The iffiest one being Vincent Jackson against the NE D. But I'd rather have Rivers throwing to my WR than McCown (or will it be Culpepper??).

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! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
