Week 16 Waiver Wire Thoughts

My good fantasy karma must be out of control or something - I've made it to the championships in all three of my playoffs leagues. Amusingly, I will be playing against my husband in one league. I can say with certainty that we both really want to win, too, so I can only imagine how irritated the rest of my family will be on Christmas Eve as we check stats during quality family time. I'm still trying to work out how I can watch the Broncos game that night and not annoy the rest of my non-football loving family members.

Anyway, let's talk waivers. I already linked to a few yesterday, but read on for more:
For those of you who regularly swing by the blog to ask lineup questions, just a heads up that I will be traveling to the east coast on Friday and likely not really on e-mail or online at all that day. That also means the IDP and consensus start/sit posts will go up on Saturday morning instead of Friday.

I just wanted to say overall that I love your blog. I didnt find it until later on in the year and somehow I have limped on in to the playoff in my legue. I say "limped" because I have had marginal to horrible players on my team this year and LT is about the only person who I have played consistently. I have to say you site helped me very much during those agonizing days leading up to the decision of who to play. Thanks for the hard work. ... Chris

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
