Can't Get Enough of Fantasy Sports

Apparently a day full of fantasy sports is not enough for me - I have to round off the day with a blog post. I spent today at the Fantasy Sports Trade Association conference representing both myself and Sports Data Hub, and my brain is already brimming with all sorts of fantasy sports info. Tomorrow's schedule is even busier and I feel a little giddy over being able to spend an entire second day thinking/talking/breathing fantasy sports.

Soon my life will return to normalcy but until then, a few quick links:
  • Rotoworld's Only for the Addicts summary of the first experts mock draft of the year - full of all sorts of commentary.
  • Over the course of the 2007 season, I e-mailed with several of you about the benefits of an IDP league (individual defensive players) rather than a D/ST. I enjoy both formats but do find IDP leagues rather refreshing. For details and tips on IDP leagues, check out Football Jabber's Fantasy Football Tips: Individual Defensive Players.
  • Take a look at Athlon Sports' NFL Draft - Tight Ends for a breakdown of how the position has been drafted over the past five years and what you can expect from the 2008 NFL Draft.
  • Also on Athlon/Grogan Sports, read up on why you should love Minnesota alum RBs Marion Barber and Laurence Maroney in Barber & Maroney: Top 10 Backs in '08.

Okay, time to stop thinking about football and get some sleep for the night.

Thanks for the plug nice lady! I love IDP! It adds so much more to the game. The series I'm doing on Fantasy Dynasty 101 is based on an IDP league we have had going for a few years. It' my favorite league.

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
