Week 11 Prep

After tonight's game, we can officially say goodbye to the bye weeks - I for one am quite pleased to have a full arsenal of fantasy weapons ready for the next several weeks. However, the injury reports never seem to end (I'm sure every AP owner nearly had a heart attack yesterday)...check out either Rotoworld's NFL Headlines or KFFL's Hot Off the Wire for the latest news on injuries and/or lineup changes (Brodie Croyle here to stay?). And speaking of updates, looks like Shaun Alexander is out for tonight's match-up. I'm interested in how much action Leonard Weaver sees or if this will mostly be a Maurice Morris kind of night.

So even though the bye weeks are ending, I know many of you out there are still looking for new players to add to your lineups to ensure a piece of the playoffs pie. Never fear - check out the following links:
  • FF Goat's Fantasy Football Wavier Wire and Sleeper Watch Week 11 is full of suggestions, including mystery man James Thrash with the Skins. Will Thrash be a one-week wonder or has Jason Campbell finally found his money receiver??
  • FootballDocs' Week 11 Pickup/Drop Advice has been telling us for several weeks now about the value of Chris Henry (WR) and his 99 yards yesterday certainly was impressive. If he's available in your league, get him.
  • The Bruno Boys bring you a special edition of Work the Wire, the Waiver Wire with their Waiver Wire Mid-Season Master List. This is the first of a two part series - the rest will be out later this week.
As always, I'll be back tomorrow with more links to those free agents you should be targeting this week. Enjoy MNF tonight!

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
