Postseason FF Librarian's Challenge

For those of you who are looking for any opportunity to stretch out the fantasy season as long as possible, take a look at NFL.com's Playoff Challenge. As the rules note, points are based on the stats that your players accumulate during the playoffs and you are given 300 "units" to buy your 8 players (some of whom can be changed as the playoffs roll on). It's free, you could possibly win a trip to the 2009 Super Bowl, and for those of you who want to make it a little more interesting, you can play in the FFLibrarian's Challenge group. I've set up a private group by that name and anyone who is interested is more than welcome to join in by clicking on this link. There is a chance that link might not work, in which case you can just e-mail me and I'll send the group invitation your way.

There are all sorts of other postseason competitions going on - the FF Goat is on a search for more of them, so check back with him for other ideas. Or read Rotoworld's Post-Season Fantasy Rankings for guidance on who to pick up for postseason challenges.

Happy New Year's Eve and enjoy today's bowl games!

The best is the commercial for it using the "You had a Bad Day" song. It made me laugh because that was me this year yelling at the tv as I watched Brady tank against the Jets and Tomlinson sit the second half against Detroit. I got knocked out the playoff finals over only 8 pts.

Hey Nice Lady! I wanted to invite you and any of your readers to play as well. I have one going where you choose a lineup each week. Once you use a player you can't use them again. Whoever has the most points by the end of the Super Bowl wins.

Drop me a line by my new blog if your interested. You could also link a post there if you like. I feel kinda dirty leaving a link in a comment.

Otherwise, I look forward to seeing what you come up with in the offseason!

Have one set up for the blog now if you want in. I'm going to invite those that were in our league among others.

Ok, I got in yours at NFL.com I have not done anything there in so long I had to register again.

NFL.com game is ok, but to play real Fantasy, or as close as you can get in the playoff with out having a draft check out the guys at . It was a new site last year, looks like they gave it a new design (must better) this year. We played it last year it is pretty cool. You get to set a line up each week or the playoffs.

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
