Week 7 Review and Injuries

Well today is the day to buy World Series tickets here in Denver. I've got less than 15 minutes until ticket purchase time but I have very low expectations for being able to get through and buy them. Word on the street here is that the website/server the Rockies are using is just awful. These are the things that happen to teams that never win enough to ever get to the WS before...I'll keep you posted on whether or not I'll be attending a WS game in person.

But back to football. Enough of this crazy baseball talk. For your injury updates on the past week, check out KFFL's Post-game Injury Report - Week 7 or just read Rotoworld's NFL Headlines section. There are enough big names listed with injuries to send a shiver down your spine. Brandon Jacobs may have re-injured his ankle? Gore might be out for Week 8? Travis Henry left with bruised ribs? Bulger played miserably? Oh wait, that's no surprise considering the state of the Rams these days. Anyway, read up. I personally don't think Gore will be out for Week 8 - I watched him come back and run a fair amount more after this ankle injury so I am not even going to waste my time worrying about it. Yet.

Of course it's never to early to get the juices flowing on which free agent(s) to get off the waiver wire. So here are a few sites that are already up and providing some suggestions for you:

Wow... you weren't kidding -

Rockies Ticket Trouble
Yeah, frustrating stuff out there with the Rockies tickets. I kept refreshing my timed out pages on-and-off for a few hours (I'm sure they loved me for doing that!) until I heard over the radio that their system had basically been so overwhelmed that it was turned off for now. Not really sure what the next plans will be but honestly, I think anyone could've predicted this outcome when you have such massive demand and not a very strong server/infrastructure set up.

Nice pick up of Chatman in the blogger league. I drafted him in most of my leagues but have since let him go ....ugh!

This injury just put me out of the race I believe.

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  DavidGonos.com'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 CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
