Who doesn't love to win?

We've got a winner. Glenn Okamoto submitted the closest guess for last night's MNF double header contest (he guessed Adrian Peterson with 98 yards; AP/AD had 103 rushing yards last night) and is now a proud subscriber to FFXtreme. Thanks to all of you who participated and if you didn't win, well why not try again? I'm going to spice things up a little (getting crazy!) and ask two questions for the Week 2 games contest:
1. How many rushing yards will Matt Forte have in Week 2? (The winner will receive a subscription to FFXtreme)
2. How many receiving yards will Randy Moss have in Week 2? (The winner will receive access to Fantasy Football Starters' Power Player Package - includes a line-up and trade analyzer)

E-mail me your answers for the above questions by Sunday, September 14 by 11:00 am eastern time. This is an excellent time to let you all know that I am going to be traveling this weekend from Thursday through Sunday and might be a little slower than usual in getting back to your e-mails. I'm throwing my sister a wedding shower back in D.C. so I'll be doing girly things for much of the weekend. But don't worry, I'll still be around and blogging! In fact, I'll be traveling for 5 of the next 9 weekends so I think I'll get the hang of blogging from the road...but have patience.

Now to football. Finally.
  • More waiver wire advice from the FFGoat - he's added Eddie Royal (Go Broncos!) to his list of pickups, so you can rest assured that the Goat is on the ball with waiver wire picks.
  • A quick list of waiver wire possibilities from Rosenthal's Pancake Blocks blog.
  • Pigskin Addiction already posted their projections for Week 2 games with scores, commentary and yardage for big (and small) fantasy players.
  • I've been flooded with questions about which QB to grab now that Brady is out and Carson Palmer looks mediocre at best. First, let me advise two things: 1. if you're in a keeper league it goes without saying that you keep Brady on your team and 2. give Palmer a little time before you dump him, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't look at other options. Fantasy Sharks' Hey Brady owners: What is your plan B? has some interesting thoughts for those of you in need of a new QB.

I definitely love to win! :) Thanks for adding another reason to watch MNF. Keep up the great work on your website, the info there is extremely helpful and the links are great.

BTW, FFXtreme looks very cool. Everyone should check it out!

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
