IDP Forecast: Week 6...plus new Start/Sit sites

It has been a rather long week for me so I am embracing Friday with a lot of excitement - and planning on dedicating a good chunk of time to fantasy football preparations. So let the links begin!

IDP Forecast: Week 6 - read on for the usual suspects. If anyone has a free IDP link that I am missing, let me know. There aren't nearly as many IDP sites and I am always looking for more.
  • Fantasy Sharks' The Hive: Week 6 - good stuff as always here and with the extreme number of byes this week, take a look at this list if you need ideas on who to pick up this week.
  • FFToday's IDP Notes: Week 6
  • CBS Sports' Witness for the Defense: Week 6 - lists a sleeper pick at each IDP position
  • FFToolbox's Week 6: IDP Starters - as always I find myself wishing they formatted this a little differently since this list is really just about IDP studs, many of whom weren't available the day after the draft. But it's interesting reading nonetheless.
Beyond IDPs, I have more fantasy links for you. First, I was reading SportingNews.com's Rankings: Using all your tools and think it's always a good idea to remind people to look at a matchup when considering your bye week plug-ins. If the Jets and Browns really are giving up TDs to TEs like crazy, maybe give some extra consideration to picking up the newly returned LJ Smith (as long as he's definitely starting) or Miami TEs David Martin or Justin Peele could turn out well for you this week.

Consider ARI's Karlos Dansby and ATL's Michael Boley folks...both are among the highest scoring LB's the last two weeks.

BTW, who are your IDP's, fflibrarian?

Jim,
I have two different IDP leagues. In one I have:
Antoine Winfield
Barrett Ruud
Napoleon Harris
D'Qwell Jackson
I have hung onto Winfield but rotated the other guys based on byes. I'm open to suggestions to replace D'Qwell in particular since I just picked him up this week. Boley and Dansby have both been taken.

In my other IDP league I have:
Aaron Kampman
London Fletcher-Baker
Barrett Ruud (again)
Antoine Winfield (again)
Darelle Revis
Karlos Dansby
Kelvin Hayden
Again, I'm open to suggestions for some of those guys, but I think I've got a pretty stellar group there.

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
