Contest for a Monday night and waiver advice

Happy MNF double header. To celebrate such a season rarity, we'll be doing another contest here at FFLibrarian. A few weeks ago I gave away a few year-long subscriptions to Fantasy Football Xtreme and we're doing another one tonight. Since Adrian Peterson is playing tonight and the Denver vs. Oakland showdown is sure to be a battle on the ground, I thought I'd put out a call for the running back with the highest number of yards on the ground. So e-mail me the RB (and anticipated his rushing yards) that you think will be numero uno tonight by 7:00 pm eastern today (Monday) and the winner will be a lucky recipient of a FFXtreme subscription. You only have a few hours so submit your guess now!

I think I'm going to make this contest a regular feature for the next several weeks to thank you all for stopping by. Every week I'll ask for a position and yardage and you could win either a subscription to FFXtreme or to Fantasy Football Starters' Power Player Package.

In other news, as I mentioned yesterday the local Fox station ran a story on me last night and for those who don't live in the Denver area, here's the video. I think my 15 minutes of fame might be coming to an end but it was fun while it lasted! And now maybe I can finally get over my cold...

But onto the important stuff!
  • When you see Brady, LT, Marion Barber and Joseph Addai all listed under Injury Notes for Week 1, you know it's going to be a crazy season. For thoughts on Brady's season-ending injury, check out Gregg Rosenthal's A Season Changed. And has your other post-game injury news.
  • The FootballDocs are one of the most dependable sites I know - you can count on them churn out their waiver wire advice early every Monday morning no matter what. So read on for their Week 2 Pick-up/Drop Advice, which includes Anthony Fasano (did I call that one or what? I guess it's a little early in the season to be making claims...) and Dante Rosario (what an amazing catch to end yesterday's game!).
  • FFXtreme has advice on which players are on the rise and decline in Fantasy Football Stock Market - Week 2.
  • ProFootballWeekly's Fantasy Ticker has some hot pickups and sell high suggestions - okay, just one sell high suggestion: Randy Moss.
  • Bruno Boys' Fantasy Football Week 1 Waiver Wire is up for your review - I like the watch list at the end but also wouldn't have minded seeing some D/STs up there. As a Seattle D/ST owner in several leagues, yesterday was um, not fun. I'm not sure I need to pull the trigger quite yet but they sure are making me nervous.


In addition to the items listed in the poll question, I'd love it if you could give us a look into the decisions you make over the course of the week for one of your leagues. Agonizing over sit/starts, waiver wire pickups, trade thoughts, etc. Assuming that wouldn't put your opponents at a competitive advantage, of course.

It wasn't just your local Fox affiliate. It just aired here in Boston as well. Congratulations.

There's a story about you on the new tonight in Minneapolis too, so you may have another few minutes of fame left. I hope that cold can wait!

Congrats on the news segment! If you pause the video on the split second that it's looking at your links, we even get free advertising...hah. Keep up the good work

Great video - you looked great! You are turning into quite the celebrity!

Nice job. I like reading the NYTimes blog.
Awesome. I can't believe the story was picked up by Fox stations everywhere - too funny. Thank you all for letting me know.

Matthew - I sort of assumed that my own personal start/sit dilemmas might not be that interesting for you guys but if you want I can certainly talk about how I make some of my decisions. Thanks for the suggestion!

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
