Week 9's Waiver Thoughts

Good morning Football Fans. Though I suppose it's already nearing the afternoon for those of you on the eastern side of the nation. So let's not waste time talking about how my loss to my husband this week was solidified during last night's Broncos-Packers game. Let's get right to who you should pick up off the waiver wire this week....read on for expert opinions:
  • FF Geek Blog's Waiver Wire Pickups, Keeper Sleepers, and Spot Starts: Week 9 has just what you're looking for, especially if you want to read up on all NFL players named Chris Henry.
  • I admit, I was fooled by Kenton Keith's time sharing in previous weeks. NFL.com's Risers and Fallers: Addai, Davis headline risers rubs that in a bit. But they don't have Marques Colston and his 3 TDs anywhere on their list of risers - an oversight? Or do they think this past week was an aberration for Colston?
  • Currently, Rotoworld appears to have a fantasy basketball article in place of their fantasy football waiver wired article. So until that gets fixed, try their Football Daily Dose for thoughts on which of your players' poor performances are worth worrying about.
  • FFToolbox's Week 9: Pickups of the Week offers several pages of suggestions of players that might be free agents in your league.
  • The FF Goat updated his Waiver Wire and Sleepers Watch Week 9 article after last night's stunner (tough times here in Denver...) to include Ryan Grant, GB's out-of-nowhere running back.
  • The Sports Outlaw's Waiver Wire Moves - Week 9 includes IDPs as well as the usual RB, QB, WR, TE suspects.
  • Who is the dump of the week? Read Fanball's Inaction Jackson for this week's big drop. Or try Cooped Up Henry for their pickup of the week.
  • Try NFL Freaks' Hot Waiver Wire Picks - Week 9 to find out why JaMarcus Russell should be on your radar.
  • Pigskin Addiction has a couple of waiver suggestions in Waiver Wire Work that I didn't find anywhere else - nice work, guys.
  • Want your waiver suggestions in video format? No problem, Fox Sports has you covered with their Waiver wire pickups video.
I'll be back tomorrow with even more waiver wire links and other fantasy news that might be help as you get your Week 9 lineups set.

My thoughts:

QB: Kellen Clemens - he's the starter in New York now, worth a shot for those with crappy options. I'd also keep an eye out for JaMarcus Russell.

RB: Chris Henry (TEN) and Ryan Grant (GB). Grant looks like he has a serious chance of taking the starting job in Green Bay, the way that Wynn keeps getting injured.

WR: Ted Ginn (MIA) and Chris Henry (CIN). Ginn looks explosive and Henry is needed badly in Cincy. The latter is coming back after week 9, apparently.

TE: Tony Scheffler (DEN) - he's scored two weeks in a row and doing a better job right now than guys like Owen Daniels (ugh, bad situation in HOU right now).

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
