Mid-week Fantasy News & More Waivers

Welcome to Wednesday. Let's get caught up on some of the mid-week news in preparation for Week 8 of the 2007 NFL season:
I put up a few waiver thoughts on my post yesterday but there are even more waiver wire suggestions up today, so take a look at these sites for some advice on who to grab off waivers:
  • NFL's Fabiano: It's time to utilize the backfield handcuff includes valuable RB backup info as well as a waiver wire focus section.
  • CBS Sports' Playing the Waiver Wire: Jesse's turn - I was able to get Jesse Chatman in one of my leagues and while I feel a little badly for snatching this guy before the Ronnie Brown owner could get to him (sorry TINO), I still desperately need some help in that league. Whose to say that Cobbs and Booker won't get a lot of the action, so I'm not convinced yet that getting Chatman was such a coup, but we'll see...
  • FFToday's Through the Wire: Week 8 - will these guys be correct in forecasting a decent game from Bulger this week? And while I love my Broncos, they make a great point about starting GB's Donald Lee considering all the fantasy points the Broncos have given up to TEs.
  • NFL Freaks' Hot Waiver Wire Picks - Week 8
  • SI's Wire Tap - check out the Titans lovefest here
As always, check back later in the week for Start and Sit sites as well as IDP info. If you have any fantasy questions, send them my way via the Contact Me link if I'm not online to chat.

Not a problem. I should have got up when I heard but I was in couch mode I tried to get Jones since you dropped him but someone with higher waiver priority got him. So I make a go with DeAngelo Williams and Selvin Young. Would they just suspend Travis Henry for me already? At least I will get Marion Barber back next week.

Maybe I can get someone to trade me for one of my WR's.

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
