FFLibrarian Winners

Okay, let's talk about winners. I've got a lot of contests and challenges going on it seems so let's review the top dogs:

1. There are 62 of us in the FFLibrarian's Challenge on NBCSports.com's $100K Fantasy Challenge. After Week 2 the top five leaders in the challenge are: Top Down Bottom Up, Micksauce, DoubleO, The Maestro and Htownpunks. Nice work, teams. Keep it up though remember the Librarian is on your tail. Kind of - I'm back in 28th place sadly. If you're wishing you were part of this challenge, I think you can still join in since your team’s 2 lowest week totals are thrown out. Check out this post for details on how to join us.

2. Last week I offered up two questions - how many rushing yards would Matt Forte have? And how many receiving yards would Randy Moss have? We have two winners! Tucker Dahlberg is the big winner of the Forte contest with 92 yards; Tucker is now a proud subscriber of FFXtreme. And Sean Davis is the winner of the Moss contest - Sean submitted a guess of 37 yards, which was the closest submission to Moss' measly 22 yards. With this guess Sean won access to FFStarters' Power Play Package.

I will be giving away subscriptions to FFXtreme and FFStarters for two more weeks, so you still have a chance to win! This week I'll be asking two new questions:
  1. During Week 3, which defense will give up the fewest points and how many points will that be?
  2. During Week 3, which kicker will kick the longest field goal and how long will the kick be?
Send me an e-mail by Sunday at 1:00 eastern time with your submission to participate.

An IDP question: In a tackle-heavy league (2 pt. per solo), what do you think of Chris Gamble and Channing Crowder as DB and LB options, respectively?

Also, what do you make of Pierre Thomas's value? He's quietly putting up some nice points.
Gamble is looking good so far and with an upcoming Minn offense that's looking particularly shaky at everything except the run game, I think he'd be a nice start this week. Crowder is on a D that is just bound to see a lot of play time - actually, this reminds me that if Yeremiah Bell is available still, he'd make a great DB, too - but back to Crowder...give him a whirl, he's certainly had two decent weeks back-to-back, esp when you've got 2 pts per solo tackle here. Other LBs with lots of tackle potential include Ruud and Keiaho if they're available.

I've been tempted to start Pierre Thomas this coming week. We all know Denver isn't exactly the greatest against the run (sigh) and he could definitely be in line for another TD - I'd probably only start him as a flex of RB3 though. His value could definitely skyrocket up as the season goes on...great guy to have on reserves.

should i start dante rasorio (against Minn.) or randy mcmichael (against Seattle) this week?
Oh man, a tough TE question to start my morning. I think this is the 4th TE question I've done already today...TEs are so hard to predict (for me)! How risky are you feeling? If you need to play it safe this week, I'd go with McMichael with low expectations. Last year McMichael had 36 and 24 yards in games against the Seahawks. Not exactly tearing it up. But if you're feeling risky and have some otherwise stellar players on your team, go with Rosario and hope that Steve Smith gets covered so much that it leaves Rosario open for lots of short passes. Good luck!

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
