Monday morning recap for Week 4

Before I get into any of today's links (and no, I can't even talk about the sadness of the Broncos' loss), can we all just enjoy a moment for my 5-0 Northwestern Wildcats? Oh yeah. This glory might not last, but for now we are sitting atop the Big Ten (with Penn State) and it's a wonderful place to be. I'm already dreaming of the Rose Bowl...

Some links for the day:
  • Waiver wire material is up for your review - the FFGoat's Fantasy Football Sleeper and Waiver Wire Watch Week 4 even includes Kyle Orton. I think the Goat is aware of how crazy it is to actually have Orton's name there - and last night I swear I kept hearing all sorts of Orton praise that just didn't feel natural at all - but hey, if you need help, sometimes you've just gotta dig deep. Real deep.
  • NFL.com also has wavier advice up in Toomer, Seattle wideouts will be hot names on the waiver wire. I snagged Engram in a few leagues and am hoping I'll be able to plug him in right away...we shall see how that turns out...
  • Starting later today I will be blogging daily on FantasyPlayers.com with some additional thoughts and links to what I have here. I'll be putting up links to that material every day so you'll basically be getting a double librarian dose if you need it.
  • There were some injuries in Week 4 - stay hip and see why everyone seems to be grabbing Steve Breaston by reading Rotoworld's Injury Crunch.
  • Check out FootballDocs' Fantasy Football Waiver Wire for some free agents you might be able to put on your team if you're in need of some help for Week 5 and beyond.
  • And finally, Fantasy Sports Business did an interview with me - my profile is located here on FSB if you're interested.

Congrats on getting the media attention! I mean that. You do good work, so please don't let the media give you the big head and start demanding more touches, a la TO. By the way, you do provide a nice counter argument to the other media darling this FFB season, Women Against Fantasy Sports (womenagainstfantasysports.com). They're just a bunch of haters.

Now that we have a little more info on everyone, is it time for a look at season/playoff SoS rankings?

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
