Winding up for Week 3

Happy Monday, fantasy football fans - with just one more game to go tonight, I hope many of you are already staring down a win. First off, I'd like to thank Deion Branch for apparently hearing my cries of dismay last weekend and putting up much, much better numbers yesterday. I'll take 122 yards any day.

A few Broncos items to note - Jason Elam is awesome. I know I've mentioned this before but he has now won two games for the Broncos in back-to-back clutch kicking situations. Elam, you really are #1. And I think I was right to imagine big things for Brandon Stokley - honestly, the Broncos Brandons (the other one being Brandon Marshall) might be some of my favorite sleepers for the year...

Back to fantasy advice. Check out the always early Bruno Boys' Work the Wire, the Waiver Wire - Week 2 edition. I'm in need of a TE and am intrigued by their suggestion of Donald Lee - by the way, Bubba Franks is actually still around in GB?

Try getting caught up on the weekend with SI's Sunday's Best: Week 2 for a review of the studs, duds, and surprises out there.

Check out's listing of Hot Free Agent/Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 3. Or Fantasy Football Goat's Fantasy Football Waiver Wire and Sleepers Watch Week 2 - the Goat likes to include some less common picks, so give it a look (and this list will be updated after tonight's game if necessary).

All for now - there will be loads of sit and start sites coming up later this week as well as rankings, projections, whatever else you might want. Enjoy the game tonight!

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
