Waiver Thoughts & Broncos News

First, I'd like to start off with some updates on Broncos players - sorry for the hometown bias, but it's valuable for all to know that Javon Walker is back on the practice field, baby. If you have Javon on your team as I do, take note that while he doesn't feel his knee will actually be healthy until the off-season, Walker claims it's go-time and he's ready to play through it. Hmm.

In other Broncos news, the latest I've heard on Travis Henry is as follows from the Denver Post: "The one issue to pay attention to is running back Travis Henry. A final determination on his drug test is not expected to be made until mid-November, but the NFL wanted it resolved yesterday. If Henry is suspended, as most expect, than the Broncos will likely finish the season with a tailback rotation of Selvin Young and Andre Hall." Andre Hall, you say. In fact, some suggest that Hall would take Henry's place and Selvin Young would maintain his current roll. So keep that name in mind when mid-November comes around. And if you're in the market for a solid Broncos blog, check out Mason's Morsels - this guys knows his stuff.

Okay, back to more general fantasy football stuff. I know you all are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Week 7, purely because it's that reprieve between Weeks 6 and 8, which both have six teams on bye (who makes these decisions anyway?). But the Panthers, Browns, Packers and Chargers are all on bye this week meaning there are still quite a few holes to fill. So let's take a look at some of the waiver wire suggestions for Week 7:

I'm pretty heavily invested in Broncos this year so it's great to see Walker back and practicing. Henry is a monumental disappointment and I'm counting on missing him from about week 10 on. I'm scouring the wire and trying to make trades in advance. Here are some of my waiver wire picks for this week:

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!
