Football for a Thursday

Just a note to my loyal readers, there will be some sparse posting for the next few days. I'm heading up to Aspen tonight to tackle some serious powder for the weekend followed by two days at the Fantasy Sports Trade Association annual conference - yes, I'm living a charmed life. I may have more time and access to my blog than I think, but for now brace yourselves for a quiet week with the promise that there will be many more posts soon to follow.

So until then, why don't you read up on some of these excellent football links?
  • The Pro Football Reference Blog's There is no greatest team ever has some interesting thoughts on what makes a team one of the greatest of all times - and how the 2007 Patriots fit in to that concept.
  • Wondering where some of the free agents might find themselves for the 2008 season? Football Jabber's Fantasy Free Agent Forecast has taken a stab at the fantasy implications of some potential free agent moves. And if you want even more free agency talk, check out Fanball's Free Agency Preview. OR try Football Outsiders' free agency review starting with the NFC South.
  • If you'd like to keep up on the team transactions within the NFL, take a look at ProFootballWeekly's Summary of NFL Transactions.
  • Check out the Bruno Boys' Top 7 Bounce Back Players of 2007 for a list of guys like Jamal Lewis and Clinton Portis who rose above expectations this past season.
Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week!

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
