Waiver Suggestions for Week 7

There's much to think about in the world of fantasy football....with Chris Chambers being traded to the Chargers, reports of 2 more Patriots being sidelined this weekend (Morris, Watson), Priest Holmes practicing again and Michael Bennett arriving in TB, there has been some activity worth reading up on this week. Check out my post from Tuesday or read on for more free agent/waiver wire ideas...
  • Start your waiver research with CBS Sports' Playing the Waiver Wire: Hunting for a QB?
  • Another good one is FFToday's Through the Wire - these guys give you a deep analysis of which free agents you might want to pick up. Always helpful for those of us playing in a league with a bunch of FF experts...Blogger league, I'm talking about you.
  • NFLFreaks' Hot Waiver Wire Picks - Week 7
  • I'll admit it, I picked up Michael Bennett in a league where my RB performance is sub-par. I am hoping that Bennett will somehow become a force to be reckoned with even though Sporting News' Michael Bennett far from savior warns me that that's rather unlikely...
  • SI's Wire Tap - includes some thoughts on David Patten - for those of you considering picking him up, read this first.
  • Ahh, Mr. Fantasy. I do love your rankings - RBs, QBs, WRs, TEs, Ks, D/STs.
  • FFToolbox's Week 7: Sleepers of the Week - these guys have Brian Leonard as a good guy to start this week against Seattle. I'm hoping Leonard will find his feet again after what can only be termed a disaster of a game against Baltimore.
Stay tuned for the Start and Sit sites tomorrow and IDP Forecast on Friday...

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
