Waiver Time - Week 13

Waiver wire time, my friends. The next few weeks are crucial - either you're trying to make the playoffs or you're so far out of the playoffs race that you're just trying to prove you're better than your record. Either way, we all want to win, no? So take a look at some of the links below for advice on which free agents you should try to grab:
  • FF Geek Blog - The Wire: Week 13 - as always, these guys continue to churn out some quality stuff. I am particularly interested in Greg Lewis here - haven't seen his name on a ton of other waiver wire sites. Nice work, FF Geeks.
  • Check out The Hazean's Grab Bag: Week 13. One note of caution, Denver's Andre Hall suffered a high ankle sprain this past weekend but played through it. It's unclear if he'll be able to play this week or not (um, who's left in Denver? Wait - me! I'll get my gear together and try out...though in all seriousness, Wali Lundy has been working out a bit here) - so keep your eye on that situation.
  • Rotoworld's Waiver Wired: The Other Original - it's all Adrian Petersons all the time.
  • The Sports Outlaw doesn't have their Weekly Waiver Wire Moves - Week 13 up quite yet, so check back for an updated link later today.
  • NFLFreaks.com's Hot Waiver Wire Picks - Week 13 - they make an excellent point here that the Chiefs face 3 teams with rushing Ds ranked 23rd or lower. Yes, please go get Kolby Smith.
  • NFL.com's Risers & Fallers: Gore, Welker have solid weeks - oh yeah, Frank Gore. I can't get enough of that guy. Note the major downgrades to Losman and Hackett, among others.
  • FanNation's Wire Tap advises against Jabar Gaffney even though he has a pretty rad name.
  • FF Toolbox's Week 13: Pickups of the Week - didn't think I'd be seeing Trent Dilfer's name on here. Ever. But there it is. Along with amazing Tony Scheffler.
As always, more waiver links will be posted tomorrow, as well as some start/sit advice (I hope) for Thursday's game. I am going out of town this weekend - a super last minute decision to fly to Atlanta for the SEC Championship game (and to visit family). I sadly will be flying during both the Thursday night game and the Sunday afternoon games...so I will likely not be on chat after Thursday morning - so get your lineup questions in to me early. I will still get my normal posts up though, never fear!

I want to say outstanding job. I have discovered this website a few weeks ago and have checked it every day since. Keep up the good work and thanks!
Thanks Ryan - glad the site is helpful and I appreciate hearing the feedback!

What's the latest word with the Denver running back situation? I would think that Bell would be next in line to start, but with his fumble he went right back into the doghouse. And Sapp coming in soon after got some carries, but wouldn't he be better served as FB? So does Wali Lundy have a shot if Henry, Young and Hall can't go (it's a sad state of affairs for my team - in a 16 team league - when I have to ask that question).

Ms. Librarian,

You are the best, too bad your not available on the waiver wire.
Checkout Fantasy Sports Central, they give an average weekly rating from like 10 diferent sites by position.
I am fortunate to have clinched a playoff spot in my keeper (also IDP) money league. Are their any sites that are looking at week 15 & 16 (playoff weeks) as far as good and bad matchups? I remember seeing an article somewhere, but cant find it now. I know you like to reseach, I appreciate any help.
PS How do I get a library card?

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
