Playing the Playoffs Game

I've been impressed by the number of fantasy footballers that are getting into postseason FF this year - who knew so many people were eager to keep going? Already there are over 60 of us in the FF Librarian's Challenge via NFL.com. I thought that by the time the regular season ended and Week 18 rolled around you all might have eased off the fantasy train a bit. Not so. I say cheers to that and remind you all that if you DO want to get involved in playoff FF, that you need to do so before the games start Saturday afternoon.

Check out my posts from yesterday and Wednesday for the bulk of the playoff fantasy football links that are out there, but read on for other thoughts as well.
  • FF Geek Blog's Are you in a playoffs fantasy league? - these guys are partaking in CBS Sports' playoff challenge (CBS is also running the NFL.com challenge, I believe, hence why they sound so similar) and both Matt and Brandon offer up their lineups of choice for this first week of playoffs. Matt, your massive amount of Giants love makes me nervous, I'll be honest.
  • KFFL has rankings for Week 18 based on PPR scoring, organized by tiers: QB, RB, WR, TE, and Kicker
  • FFXtreme's Fantasy Playoff Rankings from Smitty
  • If you like your advice via video, try NBC's Fantasy Fix Playoff Props with Gregg and Tiffany (finally, some recognition that Omar Epps and Mike Tomlin are probably long lost brothers; and wow, Del Rio is possibly Principal Rooney's twin - unreal!).
Enjoy your Friday - I will be online for much of the afternoon if you have any playoffs questions. Good luck and thanks again to those of you in on the FF Librarian's Challenge!

Just thought you should know both my dad and brother won their respective fantasy leagues (on ESPN). If they say FF runs in the genes, perhaps it's about time I joined in the fun...or, I'll stick to caring about college football in the fall and only about NFL when my Seahawks keep me interested in the post-season. Know anyone who wants to give me a ticket to this weekend's Packers-'Hawks game??

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
