FFL's new domain name, FSTA and other football stuff

Greetings football fans. Just for kicks type this into a browser: http://www.fflibrarian.com/ - yup, the Fantasy Football Librarian is moving up in the world and now has its own domain name. Don't worry, if you're used to coming to the previous URL, not a problem, you'll just be redirected. But it's kind of exciting, no?

On another exciting note, I will be attending the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA) annual conference in Denver on Feb 11 and Feb 12. If any of you fantasy gurus out there happen to be attending, please let me know and I'll keep an eye out for you. Otherwise it should be yet another place that I can absorb all sorts of fantasy info to bring back to the blog.

Okay, enough chit chat. Let's get to the daily football links:
  • First, a link from a new site that I'm involved with and am getting really excited about - Sports Data Hub. Trust me, you'll hear me gush about its awesomeness at many points throughout the offseason, but for now let's just take a look at the Tom Brady or Peyton Manning blog post - which QB would you draft first?
  • DR U Fantasy Football Guru's Keys to Victory for Super Bowl 42 includes key strategies for both the Pats and the Giants. Also of interest to me was the poll on this site, "Do you want the Patriots to win the Super Bowl to finish undefeated?" Right now results are 57% no and 43% yes. Am I one of the few non-Pats fans that is in the "yes" category? Honestly, I don't have strong feelings on the Pats one or another but I would LOVE to be around for an undefeated, record-busting, historical NFL season (asterisks and all). I mean this is history in the making, baby!
  • Check out Fantasy Football Starters' Super Predictions and Complete Statistical Breakdown of the Big Game! for more thoughts on how the SB will go...and why Maroney might be the difference maker.
  • Here's a link for those who want some photo evidence of what the Pats have been up to today in AZ. Or details on what they've been up to at practice.

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
