Bronco Bailey Brothers

Couldn't help the alliteration of the Bailey brothers news - Boss Bailey has signed with the Broncos, and yes, he is indeed Champ Bailey's little brother. But more importantly I'd like to note that the brothers are named Champ and Boss. I mean come on, those are fantastic names! What foresight their parents seemed to have had. Why weren't my parents more creative in naming me? I could've been Boss rather than Sara. I mean, family and friends would have legitimately been required to call me Boss. That could have taken me places.

In other football news...
  • One of my favorite bloggers has updated the look of his page - stop by Fantasy Football Goat to see the new design he has going on. Okay, so that's not technically football news but if you haven't already noticed, fantasy football news is hard to come by these days.
  • Okay, I've totally misled you. This isn't football news either. Fantasy baseball news instead. I don't play fantasy baseball but my husband is in two leagues that are drafting online at the exact same time. He's requested my assistance to merely be a warm body watching over whichever draft he isn't on the clock for...but I can't help but feel like I need to have some basic knowledge of the best players in case there's total draft chaos (oh you know it happens...) and I have to draft somebody for him. I don't envision myself going over to the dark side (a.k.a. fantasy baseball) since I really don't dig the sport that much, but I'd like to acknowledge this could be the beginning of the end for me. My life from here on out could be just be defined by the spaces of time occupied by one fantasy sport after another. To inform myself of all things fantasy baseball, I plan on reading Fantasy Insider Online's MLB section.
  • Finally some football news. Check out The Huddle's For Every X article - get some greater insight on just how effective players were last season when they got their hands on the ball. Interesting stuff and I sure love the free and open access to The Huddle's materials during the off-season.
Have a great weekend!

Boss and Champ are pretty cool names, but unfortunately for them, the brothers actually got named Rodney (Boss) and Roland (Champ) by their parents.

I guess they just got creative to rename themselves Boss and Champ before the NFL.
Thanks, Jacob! That is exactly the info I appreciate knowing. Clearly I need to work on my Bailey bros knowledge...

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
