Starting the week off right

I'm lacking enthusiasm for being at work today - I remember the good ol' days when I lived in Washington, D.C. and got Presidents' Day off of work since it's a federal holiday. Oh the beauty of federal holidays. So I hope those of you who aren't working today are living it up on my behalf.
But on to football. Yes, stunningly there is football to talk about.
  • Cold, Hard Football Facts' Health = wealth in the NFL does an interesting ranking of teams by most injuries to starters during the 2007 season. Teams are ranked by the total number of games missed by all key players for the season. Who comes out as the most unhealthy team of the season? My poor Denver Broncos. And the most healthy? The Pack.
  • SI's Top 10 RB Prospects from this year's rookie class. Not surprisingly, Run DMC tops the list but I'm personally interested in seeing what happens with Ray Rice. I like the guy a lot despite his supposed wear and tear.
  • FFToolbox has a ridiculous number of Mock NFL Drafts on their site. Here's one that was just updated today, but check out their homepage for links to at least three others.
  • Okay, it's possible that I could spend my entire work day pouring through the material in this link - The Huddle's Fantasy Football NFL Team Reports. The Huddle opens up their prime content during the offseason so that we can all get hooked on their high quality content and want to pay for it come August...but go ahead and delve in - you won't be sorry, this is good stuff.
All for now, the library world is calling.

Become bi........
Your library should have more than one section (aka football).
I beseech you- fantasy baseball is just as popular and even more challenging.
Can Sara (secret identity) help save the fantasy world with some research on fantasy baseball sites.
Or better yet join a baseball league on CBSsportsline

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
