Monday Update for Playoff FF

So thanks to a persuasive and knowledgeable visitor to this site, I was convinced into starting the San Diego D/ST this past week. I would have to say that turned out to be a very good thing. Now if only both Galloway and Gates hadn't injured themselves, my playoffs team might have had a decent showing. But instead, here was my lineup this past week, in the FF Librarian's Challenge, which gave me a rather mediocre 76 points:

QB: David Garrard (12 points)
RBs: Clinton Portis (7 points), Earnest Graham (14 points)
WRs: Joey Galloway (goose egg), Santana Moss (12 points)
TE: Antonio Gates (1 point)
K: Josh Brown (11 points)
D/ST: Chargers (19 points)

When your kicker scores more than 3 of your other players, you know it has been a rough week. Here's to a better week in Week 19/Playoffs week 2.
  • Observations from this past week's playoffs games from The Hazean's First-round playoff afterthoughts. Or try The Fifth Down's Trend-spotting in NFL, Playoffs Day 2.
  • Looking for updated rankings for this coming week? Try NFL.com's 2007 fantasy postseason rankings, which it looks like Fabiano just reposted.
  • Find the answers to all your divisional round AFC and NFC questions from ESPN.
  • For those total into the 2008 FF season preparations already, check out FanNation's Looking Ahead to 2008
  • Onto other football matters - I'm sorry Buckeye fans (yes, Joe, I'm talking to you) but I am pulling for LSU tonight, mostly due to my near decade of Ohio State loathing. Nothing personal at all OSU fans, perhaps with time (a lot of time) I'll even grow to like Ohio State. Enjoy tonight's game everyone!

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
