Bruno Boys Draft Magazine!

So I'm particularly psyched to announce that the Bruno Boys' Draft Magazine is up and available for review as of today - go check it out! The Bruno Boys continuously put together great content for fantasy footballers and I'm pleased to be joining them a bit this season. I have an o-line update in their draft magazine but I'll also be doing a weekly column every Tuesday on their site, which I believe they're calling A Librarian's Touch. It will be a little different than what I do on this blog since I'm usually just sending you out to a bunch of different fantasy sites here - on their site I'll actually be giving you my thoughts and opinions. Hmm, we'll see how that pans out...I think my first column will likely be next Tuesday, so stay tuned!

In other news, I am heading out tomorrow for Columbus, Ohio, to be a part of my friends Beth and Bart's wedding. If you've paid attention to my college football rants in the past, you may know that I am um, not an Ohio State fan. Sorry Buckeyes but everyone's gotta have a nemesis. So it should be interesting to be in Columbus, surrounded by OSU fans - scarlet and gray everywhere. Since I'm actually in the wedding I'll have to maintain some degree of decorum and therefore will likely not be arrested for peeing on the stadium. But you never know...

A few more football links for today follow:
  • The Huddle's 2008 Ultimate RBBC Review - if the Huddle posts something, you should probably read it. They're that good. And who doesn't want info on which of their RBs will be part of the dreaded running back by committee (RBBC) approach?
  • My doorbell rang over the weekend and the postman was standing there with a package for me from Amazon - he must've hand delivered the package because he knew what fantastic material was inside: the Football Outsiders' 2008 Pro Football Prospectus. I love this thing and if there is one actual print resource you might want to pick up before you draft, I highly recommend this book.

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
