Monday Wrap-up

I have one question - where was Deion Branch? Seriously, where was he? Was he somehow trapped in the locker room all night, unable to make it to the field? Was he even targeted at all? The game wasn't on in Colorado so I'm left wondering how he put up a big fat goose egg. Not that I was expecting an all-star night from him, but something - SOMETHING. Fortunately Tony Romo's massive performance bailed me out in that league (this game was crucial - I'm playing my nemesis). However, there are gaping holes in some of my other leagues and I'm sweating the Monday night games this week.

Another thought - I'm developing some fanlove (intense - almost frightening - interest in a football player for their fantasy promise and/or production) for Brandon Stokley. Is that only because I'm already a Broncos fan, or is that legit? Confirmation that Stokley is going to be a fantasy beast or any other thoughts are welcome.

Now let's turn to the experts to get their opinions on this first weekend of NFL action:
  • Rotoworld's Football Daily Dose - either read this every week on Rotoworld or elect to have it e-mailed your way on Monday morning; it's a nice summary of all things football from the weekend and who you should and shouldn't be worried about from a fantasy stance.
  • I'll be posting more links to waiver wires on Wednesday, but Bruno Boys already have some of the waiver juice ready for you Work The Wire, The Waiver Wire - Week 1
  • SI's Sunday Best - Week 1 lays out the fantasy studs, duds and surprises of each game; I'm kind of liking their FanNation site and don't remember it from last year - new addition for 2007?
  • ProFantasySports.com's Box Score Bandit also provides a quick fantasy overview game-by-game

Pretty funny. The same goose egg exists in my starting line-up... and I too have been wondering what exactly happened in Seattle.

Unfortunately, I didn't have Romo to bail me out, and McNabb's number's weren't that stellar either.

Congrats on your win though!

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  DavidGonos.com'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 CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
