AP1 and Looking Ahead to Week 15

Wow, do you think the SF corners realize that they singlehandedly may have destroyed fantasy seasons left and right? Are you sitting here wondering what on earth happened to Adrian Peterson yesterday? Check out the Star Tribune's article for AP1's comments on how well the 49ers' D shut down his running game. And if you're interested in the latest on Joseph Addai, it should be noted that he has been playing with a fractured bone in his chest. The man was a TD machine last night but his yardage was in line with expectations. For other highlights from yesterday's games, check out the FF Geek Blog's Sunday Wrap-up: B. Marshall breaks out! or FFXtreme's Week 14 Disasters.

Hopefully many of you are still in the hunt for either a chance to play in the playoffs, or just to make it to the next round. Personally, I need big things from Colston tonight in order to secure a spot in the playoffs for my third league. While I'm all set for the playoffs in 2 other leagues, I did not win in either of those matchups - they might be meaningless but I still don't like to lose.

So the FF Goat wisely points out that if you've reached this point of the season, you likely might not need waiver wire help. But it's some food for thought at the very least...so read on!

I agree on the calls on picking up Cutler, A. Gonzalez, Reggie Williams, J. Urban, Gado. I'd also add Nate Burleson as he's probably available in smaller leagues. It'll be interesting to see if Chatman plays this week.

Regardless of how well the Niners shut down AP1 and the performance of C. Taylor yesterday, is anyone really going to sit AP1 (or not feel good still about having him in your lineup)? I can't imagine anyone doing that. He's got you here and he's a stud, you have to start him in week 15.

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
