IDP Forecast: Week 15

Greetings IDP owners. The playoffs are here and it can all come down to your IDPs, baby. So let's not waste any time here - who should you be starting for your IDP spots? Read on:
  • Fantasy Insider Online's Week 15 Gridiron IDP Roundup - in case you've missed my fawning praise over the past few weeks, I love this weekly IDP post. Matt does a solid job with not only unearthing a bunch of potential players but also all sorts of random but helpful info on them. Great work as always, FIO.
  • The Hive. Sigh. It's like a bad relationship, really. The Hive is always late/MIA and yet I'm always eager for more. So check Fantasy Sharks for The Hive at your own peril.
  • CBS Sports' Witness for the Defense: Week 15 - I like seeing Dansby on this sleeper list and I think he'll be just fine with his seemingly minor rib injury this week.
  • FFToolbox's Week 15: IDP Sleepers - second spot I've seen Omar Gaither's name mentioned for this week...
  • SportingNews.com's IDP Zone - risers, fallers and sleepers are listed here.
And yes, it's still snowing here.

In my league, we get 2 points per solo tackle, 1 per tackle assist, 4 per interception, and 2.5 per pass defended. I can start a CB or a S at the DB position.

Some options:
Clements vs. Cincinnati
Bodden vs. Buffalo
Pollard vs. Tennessee
Finnegan vs. Kansas City
Harper vs. Arizona
Bullocks vs. Arizona
Atogwe vs. Green Bay

While I certainly want to avoid the big goose egg, my opponent has Champ Bailey and Will Demps, who have already put up 17 and 20.5 points, respectively, so I need guys who can answer. Clements is pretty entrenched (looks like a great matchup, and he's been hot lately). Bodden has been good-not-great, and it's really him vs. all the other guys for that second spot. Thoughts?
If you're already set with Clements, then I'd go with Pollard as the other DB. I'm basing that largely on the fact that tackles are worth so much and INTs are relatively random luck. So go with Pollard - I like his consistent numbers and his matchup.

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
