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

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
