Never go in against a librarian...

...when blogging is on the line. Okay, so that was kind of a crappy repurposing of the Princess Bride quote, but I must confess that The Hazean and I have made a bit of a wager on who will win the Broncos v. Saints game here in Denver this weekend. The Hazean has written all about it so let's just say I plan to have The Hazean guest blogging here on the FFLibrarian about how awesome the Broncos offense is. That will be the first time I've ever had a guest blogger on the site and I can't think of a better reason than this. Let's hope I'm not getting too cocky here...

And in other afternoon news:
  • Thigpen (seriously, I know this guys has probably heard this all his life but all I think of is Pigpen from Peanuts) will be the Chiefs' starting QB this week while Gus Frerotte will be the Vikings' starting QB for the rest of the season. Frerotte was already in 3rd grade when I was born so while I find this perhaps an upgrade from Jackson, it's hardly something to be psyched about.
  • And my column with the Bruno Boys' A Librarian's Touch is up - Forecasting Streaky Players where I touch on guys like Anthony Fasano and Isaac Bruce who have been quite up and down so far this season.

I am conflicted: I love this website & I want to sign the Librarian's praises from the highest mountaintop, but I don't want the folks in my leagues to have the knowledge I have & I don't want to post links to her site on my music board 'cause I'm affraid of too many horses asses coming here. My mom always said to share....what should I do???
Thanks for the love, jackal and anon. Jackal, your enthusiasm for librarians is much appreciated. Anon, feel no pressure to share the site - I understand your sentiments and am personally sorry that my good friend, Ethan, who is in several of my leagues, reads my blog daily. So do what you must - this is ultimately about winning your league, no? :)

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
