Monday Review

Oh what a big numbers weekend for me...in one league I gleefully watched my stats skyrocket as Adrian Peterson kept running up the TDs and yardage (at this point I'd like to point out that I got AP in the 8th round of this draft. Yes, seriously!). Sadly some of my other players in that league put up rather unremarkable numbers (Sammy Morris, how's the chest? And Vincent Jackson, what's up buddy?) so I'm only up by 5 points with my opponent still to play Plaxico tonight. If I win, I'm numero uno in that league. So depending on that matchup's outcome, I'll either go 2-2 or 3-1 this weekend. Decent, but there's always room for improvement.

So let's get to a quick review of the weekend and perhaps some early waiver thoughts:
  • Wondering who put up massive numbers this week? Which RBs had season-high yardage? Check out the Fantasy Football Geek Blog's Holy TOUCHDOWNS, Batman!
  • Want a quick review of the injuries from this weekend and how that might affect your team? Give KFFL's Post-Game Injury Report: Week 6 a look, but note that almost all players have a "status unknown" next to their name - do more research before you make lineup changes for any of them.
  • And of course the free agent/waiver wire advice begins. Try FootballDocs' Week 7 Pick-up/Drop to read up on New Orleans' WRs Lance Moore and David Patten. Or read Fantasy Football Xtreme's Week 7: Players on the Rise/Decline or Bruno Boys' Work the Wire, the Waiver Wire - Week 7 for more free agent tips.
On a different note, my Northwestern Wildcats pulled out yet another OT win this weekend over Minnesota - this one went to 2 OTs and I believe Northwestern's OT record is now 13-3. How impressive is that?

And how about the Rockies? If you lack any sort of rooting interest here, you've gotta back the perpetual underdog (which, incidentally, reminds me of how much I'm enjoying the song The Underdog by Spoon) and realize that this winning streak has been YEARS in the making. Colorado is going crazy with Rocktober love.

Looks like Plaxico was able to defeat your team...too bad. At this point, counting on Plaxico to score less than 5 points is like counting on Tom Brady to throw less than 2 TD's. Eli is loving him this season.

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
