Playoff surprises and more on 2008

Wow...neither of yesterday's playoff games had the outcome I was anticipating. I mean, the Colts didn't win?! Granted, I live with a massive Colts fan (who is now rather sullen over the state of the football season), but I just didn't really see that one coming. My husband called the Giants win (though that might be because of his love for all things Manning) and I'm sure the NY Post was thrilled to see their Fake Jessica have some success, but again...I didn't see that one coming. The FF Goat did though - nice work on that Giants pick, Goat. So my congrats to this weekend's winners and my condolences to the losers.

Onto some other thoughts out there:
Have a good one and I'll be sure to blog later about which players are in the lead in the FF Librarian's Challenge!

I don't think anyone saw the Chargers win (save a few souls in San Diego) but I don't think the Giants result is all too surprising. The Giants are certainly shaping up to be this year's Cinderella team.

In the NFL challenge, I don't think it would hurt to have all Patriots on your team, now that one can change out only 4 guys for the next week. I played both Moss and Welker, and although Moss disappointed, combined they still did well. I knew Ben Watson was going to do well, didn't think he'd catch 2 TDs though. Wish I had him instead of Kevin Boss!

You are right Freddie, nobody could have seen the Chargers winning that one.

Thanks, as always, for the props FFL. To bad I had to roll with the Seahawks though. They sure cashed it in early.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
