Rankings, SoS and more

This is going to be a quick post today - I'm off to go hear Michelle Obama speak on campus here at CU-Boulder but wanted to get a couple of links up before I head out the door. If I have time later today to get more links up, I will certainly try!
  • ProFootballWeekly has their weekly fantasy rankings up for Week 5 - as a Peyton owner, it's nice to see the guy's name high on a list of any kind again. It's been too long Peyton - I miss your total dominance.
  • I think you guys are going to really like this if you haven't seen it yet - in the comments of a recent post someone asked for strength of schedule info, so read on for FFToday's charts that show the "difference between the Opponent's FF Points Allowed for Quarterbacks and the NFL average (last 5 weeks)." Each position is represented so you might find yourself lost in this article for quite some time. I can't help but note Cassel's easy schedule over the next several weeks...
  • FootballDocs have their Start Sit recommendations up for the week - totally agree with the Felix Jones call here and think Barber will also have a pretty tremendous week.
  • Want an injury update on players like Carson Palmer, Aaron Rodgers and Brian Westbrook? Read up on the latest with Football Outsiders' Black & Blue Report.
  • The Hazean led me to this ridiculous news story, which hopefully will make you all chuckle a bit - try not to threaten your friends' lives over fantasy football like this guy did.
  • For more laughs (and sage advice), check out The Talented Mr. Roto: Week 5 Pickups - I've gotta be honest, I'm particularly liking the Matt Jones suggestion here when I see his future schedule...

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
