March Madness in the NFL

Okay, so there really isn't a whole lot of madness going on this month with respect to football. I just watched the Selection Show for college basketball's upcoming tournament and can feel the basketball excitement mounting in my household (my husband is a Knoxville, TN native). But as the basketball hype builds, don't forget - there is actually football news to read. For example:
  • D-Jax has left the Niners. The addition of Isaac Bruce and Bryant Johnson in the off-season made Darrell Jackson a bit obsolete for the 49ers - where will he go? Perhaps the Eagles, Redskins, Dallas, Bucs or Vikings. But will it even matter? Of more interest to me is Anquan Boldin, who is rumored to be on the move, possibly to one of those same teams. Boldin is not only the player with more potential, but his departure could have a big impact as well - Larry Fitzgerald owners, stay tuned for news on Boldin.
  • CoachBox has a poll on their site: what is the best ranking order for 2008, 1st round (for FF drafts)? All options include the trio of LT, AP and Brady. Of the 170+ votes at the time of this writing, 35% threw their support behind the order of Tomlinson, Peterson, Brady. This was the most popular trio while on the other hand, the two orderings that put LT 3rd were the least popular.
  • Are you in an IDP (individual defensive player) league? If so, keep an eye on ProFantasySports.com's series on IDP sleepers. As a Broncos fan, I am happy to link to PFS's On the Defensive - AFC West IDP Sleepers article but they also already have the AFC South IDP Sleepers and AFC North IDP Sleepers...with more to come.

It's dumping big, huge snowflakes here in Colorado right now and I have my fingers crossed that it might be a massive snowstorm - perhaps a snow day could be in my near future! If so, it might mean a lot more blogging about football tomorrow.

Finally, a hearty congrats to my sister who got engaged last week - I can't wait to welcome Pete, a big Pats fan, into the family.

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
