Week 14: Waiver Wire Links

Playoffs? Playoffs? That's right, for many of you the playoffs have arrived. Others, like me, are still trying to seal the deal. Either way, you need an awesome lineup this week, right? If you happen to have some holes or injuries in your lineup then take a look at some of the waiver wire advice below:
  • Rotoworld's Waiver Wired: The Finishing Touches points out that most of the guys on waivers are RB2's at best, so keep that in mind. But if you need an RB2, then you're money.
  • The FF Geeks' The Wire: Week 14 is up - need a D for this week? Think about Buffalo...
  • FF Toolbox has your Week 14: Pickups of the Week - again, none of these guys are making me drool over their vast potential this week...
  • NFL.com's Risers & Fallers: Fargas, White headline risers - and no, not LenDale White who has injured his middle finger (why does that make me giggle like I'm in 5th grade again? Sorry, LenDale, that's an unfortunate injury, though it sounds like you're going to be okay.).
  • Check back with FanNation later today for their Wire Tap article, which isn't up yet. However, I'd like to note that last week FanNation warned us that Jabar Gaffney wasn't worth picking up. And who saves the New England day last night? Jabar. What a game.
I posted a few other waiver links in yesterday's post and will of course have more up tomorrow. As well as some early start/sit links with Thursday's games fast approaching.

Bryant Johnson, Shaun McDonald, and Roddy White are all available in my league. Who's most worth a WR3 spot? Subquestion: Why are people so down on Roddy White? I know the Falcons are awful, but his numbers look pretty good.

White, Johnson and McDonald in that order. I can't believe White is available as he's 8th in the entire league for receiving yards among WRs with 920 yards. They threw to him in week 13 an incredible 19 times!

Get him now and you'll be glad you did. There's no reason why the production should stop.

Last time Atlanta and NO met, Roddy White put up 110 yards and a TD. Very appealing. I agree with Freddie on the order he suggested. I think Johnson is also a very tempting choice here but White has just shown some solid consistency.

I think the reason people are down on White is purely because they're down on the Falcons and the absolute mayhem that is the Falcons' QB situation.

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
