FFL Challenge still going! And keeper thoughts...

For those who have forgotten (or are just too far behind to have a horse in this race), the NFL.com's Playoff Challenge is still going on - meaning the FF Librarian's Challenge is still in full force with 50's Big Perms in the lead with 295 points. I am in third place in our FFL challenge but sadly in 3366th place overall amongst the rest of the NFL.com competitors. Hopefully I'll make up some ground there with 7 players in my roster for the Super Bowl. I was toying around with my RB options since I have a hole there now without Grant...I'm ultimately going with Jacobs (my other RB is Maroney) but I did think about Bradshaw - until I read this article from Accuscore: Ahmad Bradshaw in Focus and I realized that regardless of Bradshaw's recent quality performances, I would be crazy not to start Jacobs.

Other football thoughts for the day:
  • If you're in a keeper league and trying to make some big decisions about your roster (like do you keep LT or AP, yes seriously, someone actually had that very sweet dilemma), check out NFL.com's Fantasy Mailbag for answers from Michael Fabiano.
  • There's a lot of stuff on Gregg Rosenthal's blog about the Super Bowl and I'm not sure which bit I liked the best since I'm trying to live vicariously through them all, but try Setting the Scene just to get a feel for the media mayhem in Arizona.
  • Wondering how the newbie QBs of 2007 might fare in the future? Try Pro Football Reference's Similarity Scores for New 2007 Quarterbacks, which compares 2007's QBs to all QBs who have played since 1978 to get an idea of which players/seasons they can be considered comparable to based on their performance this year. Interesting stuff.
  • Know who the announcers will be on Sunday for the SB? And which announcers would you be most interested in hearing?
  • Want some keeper rankings? Try Sports Grumblings' 2008 RB Keeper League Chart for some ideas.

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
