Waiver Wire Time for Week 10

I simply can't believe how quickly the fantasy football season is flying by. Soon it will be March and I'll be morosely looking at the calendar wishing away the next 5 months. But let's focus instead on all the great free agents pickups you can get this week. Or may be forced to get if your QB got injured this past weekend (oh Cutler...) or you're a Brady owner (hopefully you planned for this...).
  • FF Geek Blog - truly a favorite site of mine. Check out their Waiver Wire Pickups, Keeper Sleepers and Spot Starts: Week 10 article.
  • The Sports Outlaw continues his plug for Chris Henry (WR) in this week's Weekly Wiver Wire - Week 10 suggestions.
  • The Hazean's Grab Bag: Week 10 is up with some waiver suggestions and ready for your questions. I have not found anyone nearly as good/timely as The Hazean at answering your lineup questions...so go ahead and ask away. You'll have an answer before you know it.
  • NFL.com's Risers & Fallers: Brees, Fargas on the rise has encouraged me to give Maurice Morris a good, long look.
  • Try NFL Freaks' Hot Waiver Wire Picks for reasons to stick with Ryan Grant.
  • FF Toolbox has a nice multi-page selection of free agents in their Week 10: Pickups of the Week article.
  • Try Fanball's pickup of the week and drop of the week suggestions.
  • Rotoworld has provided me with some Brady chuckles this morning as well as some helpful insight in their Waiver Wired: Watch Out Models! article. In one league, I am playing against the guy who has Brady this coming week and his only other QB option at the moment is David Carr. I couldn't help but let a wicked laugh escape when I noticed that. What luck for me...
  • FanNation doesn't have their Wire to Wire article posted yet, but check here for it later today.
  • FantasySharks' Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups has a solid listing of players that range from smokin' hot to those who should be on your radar for future weeks. Check it out.

Some guys I'd consider:

QB: JP Losman, Kellen Clemens, Jay Cutler

RB: Priest Holmes, Maurice Morris (Alexander hurt AND playing poorly), Kolby Smith (don't know if Holmes has anything left), Justin Fargas (if he's somehow available but if not, consider Michael Bush (may get some starts late in season for Oakland)

WR: lots here - David Patten (and by corollary, Terrance Copper - I'm buying big into Saints' resurgence), Chris Henry (activated), D.J. Hackett (will keep starting role opposite Branch), Javon Walker (might have been dropped)

i'm worried about my WR situation. i have donald driver, dwayne bowe, shaun mcdonald and donte' stallworth. driver and bowe have not been doing well. in fact bowe did zilch for me. mcdonald is iffy. two weeks ago, he sucked. this past week, he put up points. and of course the pats are on the bye. most of the recommended folk have been snapped up.

what's a girl to do??

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
