What could be better than Thanksgiving football?

Happy Thanksgiving week. I'm sitting in a nearly empty library since the students here are all off for the holiday. Oh to be a student again. But I am going to Monday Night Football tonight, so nothing can wipe the perma-grin off my face. Go Broncos.

Unless you've been living in a hole of some sort, you're likely aware that there are three NFL games on Thanksgiving, which means setting up your lineups a heck of a lot earlier than usual. So let's jump right into things and see who might be out there on your waiver wire - or perhaps more importantly at this time of year, who are the sleepers for Week 12?
  • FF Goat's Fantasy Football Sleeper and Waiver Wire Watch Week 12 - okay, I have to get this off my chest...I recommended to one of you that you sit Santana Moss this week. I hope that you disregarded my advice but in case you didn't, my deepest apologies. Moss and Campbell looked great yesterday - and I also like the Goat's suggestion of Drew Carter. Should Steve Smith miss more time, definitely think about starting Carter...
  • FF Xtreme's Week 12: Players on the Rise/Decline - for thoughts on guys you might want to trade (if your trade deadline hasn't passed yet) or pick up off of waivers.
A trade in one of my leagues went through on Saturday - I acquired Terrell Owens in this deal. You can only imagine my opponent's outrage yesterday when T.O. kept putting up TDs, sending my point total way above my opponent's (sorry, Ethan). It was glorious. But do you know what else was glorious? Seeing my hometown Redskins playing like a team that was actually gelling. I only wish that it had resulted in a win.

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
