IDP start & sit sites and other gems

It's Friday of Week 1 and FFLibrarian old timers might remember that Fridays are IDP (individual defensive player) day. From the poll on the right side it's clear that many more of you are more interested in start/sit and waivers but there are a dedicated group of IDPers out there, so I'll be sure to still get your IDP links up on Fridays. But don't worry, I've got some material for the rest of you, too.

IDP info - a lot of the regular IDP sites aren't rolling quite yet this season but will be soon:
Non-IDP info:
  • I'll go ahead and do some (more) self-promotion here - my first blog post for the season is up on the Times' Fifth Down, Fantasy Football Librarian is Here to Help.
  • Rotoworld features a new column from Mark St. Amant - MCI Index: Who's rising? MCI stands for Man Crush Index. Being female, I'm not exactly sure how to alter this index appropriately but I'll go with Fantasy Crush Index or I suppose just Crush Index (though no offense to my excellent husband who is well aware that Tony Scheffler and Frank Gore are basically my fantasy heartthrobs). And speaking of Scheff, check out it out dude, you're on the "Risers" list here! Take that, naysayers!
  • If somehow, somewhere you are in a league that includes fantasy offensive linemen, please let me know. I'd love to hear about it. And if you are, you might be interested in Fantasy Football Traders' Offensive Line Positional Rankings.
  • I'll be honest, I had sort of forgotten about Accuscore, a really interesting and unique site, until one of you kind readers reminded me about it. Accuscore does game and player forecasting and I love it - check out The Truth About Week One, which also has full player forecasts linked on the right side. Good stuff.
Enjoy the weekend - I know I will! I'll probably jump out of bed on Sunday morning like it's Christmas and my birthday combined (yeah, I like apparently like present-giving holidays a lot...). Good luck!

Still not into IDP. Maybe next year I'll try it.

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
