The nerd in all of us

Thanks to a savvy reader, Andrew, I have recently learned about a pretty tremendous site that I think many of you are going to like. It's called Fantasy Football Nerd and according to the site it "aggregates the rankings of all those sites we pour over prior to our draft and during the season to analyze the rankings given to each player to produce a Nerd Rank" - sweet, right? This blows my weekly consensus start/sit listing out of the water and it's all freely available but you need to register to use the service. The FFNerd doesn't list all of the sites it uses nor does it explicitly address how it aggregates the rankings, which are two things that I'd like to see on the site, but otherwise it looks like an excellent resource. So if you have a tough start/sit decision to make this week and are wondering what the consensus is from the experts, take a look!

Another fun piece of news is that my local newspaper, the Boulder Daily Camera, did a story on me and FFLibrarian that went up today - CU librarian turns fantasy fanatic. Several of you posted comments to my FFL posts that were included in the story. Really I'm a little embarrassed that I'm somehow newspaper-worthy but thank you all for your interest in this blog - I really appreciate it!

Hope you're all enjoying college football today and here's to an awesome start to the fantasy season...

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
