Week 16 - Start/Sit and Waivers

I got to work this morning and for the first time in days, college kids weren't crammed into every corner of the library, desperately studying for finals. I'm starting to feel badly for the kids that are still here with finals left - and sorry for myself, too, quite frankly. I think that throughout our lives, we should all still get winter, spring and summer breaks. That hasn't worked out for me quite yet. I would likely spend much of that time focusing on football of course.

For those of you in Atlanta, you may just be digesting the Big Tuna news, but I know this is a big week for everyone that's still in the chase, so read on for start and sit advice for Week 16. First though, there are still a few waiver wire articles to post - and even more waiver links from my posts on Monday and Tuesday if you missed those.
Now to those start/sit links for the upcoming week:
More start/sit links tomorrow!

Fantasy Football Librarian... will you marry me?

Because of you and all your wisdom, I am in the finals of my league, a vast improvement over my last place finish last season.

I owe it all to you.

Now, what to do against a 12-1 (regular season) team? I'm only (7-6) and lost to him before after an abysmal performance by McNabb and Westbrook against the Giants, but last week, had I played him, I would've smoked him in points.

ESPN's preview of the match up says it's a push! Gotta' pick the right lineup and with Westbrook injured and questionable, I'm freaking out.

I've got:

McNabb
Westbrook
Portis
Colston
Hines Ward
Greg Jennings
Owen Daniels
Pats D/ST
Josh Brown (K)

On my bench I have:

Kitna
Chester Taylor
Roddy White
Chris Brown
Desmond Clark
Kevin Curtis
Bills D/ST

What to do?

Whatever the case, this season of FFL has been a whole lot more fun now that I'm actually winning!

Thanks for everything!

Hmmm - all the sites say to bench Clinton Portis because the Vikings have been impenetrable against the rush. My alternative is Chester Taylor, who is a total crapshoot with AP in the picture.

Fred taylor or Brandon Jacobs
Always nice to hear from you Victor - hmm, okay so I like your WRs a lot. I think I'd rather stick with Portis than play Taylor. Portis is a #1 back, the Vikings may be the toughest run D, but they aren't impenetrable. If the Skins keep giving Portis carries as they should with Collins at QB and Portis' ability to catch the ball as well as run it, I think Portis will be fine as your RB2. Westbrook will be fine. Stick with what you have, I say. I'm a little hesitant about McNabb but he's got the win against Dallas and a horrible NO defense on his side.

The other question on Fred Taylor or Brandon Jacobs - Taylor. He's been on fire and he faces the Oakland D. Doesn't get a whole lot better than that.

A quick list of some guys to get for week 16:

If they're somehow still available: A. Stecker, S. Gado, Shaun McDonald and A. Gonzalez

Best of the Rest: DJ Hackett (coming back from injury-could play), Roydell Williams, D. Rhodes (but Jordan might get a chance), David Patten, Reggie Williams, Sage Rosenfels.

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
