Monday Recap

Wow. I don't really know how to sum up my fantasy weekend except to say it was either feast or famine for me. I had Marc Bulger, Javon Walker, and Rudi Johnson together in one league - they totaled for less than 5 fantasy points. I sat on my couch in a bit of a stupor, unclear how this catastrophe could have happened (funny, I felt the same way while watching Northwestern get demolished by OSU). But in another league, McNabb, Donald Driver, and Adrian Peterson really gave me some pretty big numbers. I would also like to publicly announce that I convinced my husband to start Kevin Curtis yesterday. It was awesome. If you don't have your very own FF Librarian to sit next to you on game day, no problem - just keep checking back with the blog for daily updates on all things fantasy football. So to start the week off, below you will find some handy links to early waiver thoughts as well as some general Week 3 recaps.
  • Bruno Boys' Work the Wire, the Waiver Wire: Week 4 - will Earnest Graham be taking over for Cadillac? Or Kenny Watson for Rudi Johnson? Don't bet on either one, but read on for details...
  • SI's Fantasy File for Week 3 includes notes on the most consistent WRs, strong starter RBs, and injury updates.
  • ProFantasySports.com's Box Score Bandit has a quick recap for each of yesterday's games.
  • Fantasy Football Goat's Waiver Wire and Sleeper Watch Week 4 - while I still have Marques Colston left to play, I have lost pitifully to the Goat this week in our Blogger league. Thanks for not rubbing it in yet, FFGoat. In the meantime, read up on his waiver and sleeper suggestions, since he clearly knows what he's doing.

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
