Conference championships approaching quickly...

I realize my earlier post today wasn't exactly chock full o' football info, so here are a few more thoughts for you on the playoffs and the 2008 season:
  • Want the latest news on this weekend’s championship games? Try Sports Grumblings’ Fantasy Grumblings: Playoff Buzz, which includes the interesting tidbit that “the Giants-Cowboys game drew the biggest national audience of any divisional contest in 11 years.” Wow, I’m impressed.
  • Philip Rivers. I am not a fan - but that's probably partially due to the fact that I'm a chick who doesn't care for those who taunt my Broncos; but from a fantasy standpoint, I feel he was an utter disappointment this year. So I can guarantee his taunting ways and sub-par performance mean I won't be drafting him next season. Glad to see others are irritated by him, too.
  • Call it self-congratulating or whatever, but I’d like to guide you all over to The Hazean’s Nine must-subscribe fantasy football feeds article. I’m honored to be on that list and realized that I don’t visit a few of those sites nearly as often as I should. Expect to see that remedied!
  • As a Maroney fantasy owner and supporter, it’s nice to get some confirmation that Maroney’s season wasn’t quite the disaster it appeared to be back in early October or so – Football Outsiders has Maroney ranked as 6th for total value among RBs who had at least 75 carries. And apparently Belichick is happy with him, which can only mean good things for Maroney in 2008 if you ask me.
  • Yesterday I mentioned the Bruno Boys’ series on the good, the bad, and the ugly of the 2007 season – their next piece in the series is up: “The Good” – Running Backs.

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
