Starting, the sun

I don't mean to harp on this, but could a city be any more humid than Ft. Lauderdale is right now? No complaints, I'm digging it, but WOW. Now I need to be brief here since I have a date with my grandmother in just an hour or so...and a date with the shower since I still haven't managed to make it out of my pajamas yet (man, I love vacations!). So onto starts and sits:
I'll try to get a consensus up as well as some IDP links later today, but could be a little tricky today. I'll do what I can! But if you need more links, check out my daily blog with and my weekly column with the NY Times, First-Class Fantasy Football Links.

Which two would you start: Addai, Earnest Graham, or Slaton?

What Type of value do you think Westbrook should get in a 12 team, 2 player keeper league?

To answer your question, yes.

I live in New Olreans and we are usually more humid than most of Florida.

Fantasy Football Librarian,

Currently I am currently in a bind when it comes to receivers, I need to start 3 out of my possible 5 this week.

This is in a PPR, 10yrd per Point, 12point TD league so it does help to have a score or two. The receivers that I have this week include

Braylon Edwards <--Bounce back week?
Wes Welker <-- Great in PPR but lacks TDs
Kevin Walter <-- Could be an option if Johnson keeps getting double coverage
Marques Colston <-- Should be back this week, could be slightly rusty but a thumb issue isn't as bad as many other injuries
Patrick Crayton <-- Fourth (or fifth) option in this Offense

So, who would be your picks for this week?
Okay, starts and sits...

Anon #1 - I would start Graham and Slaton, I think.

Anon #2 - Westbrook will be back after the bye and I'm guessing he'll be a low-end #1/high-end #2 for the rest of the season at that point.

Next anon - Gore, Graham and Slaton

Next anon - Barber and Gore; haven't seen that site before, thanks. Will go check it out!

Last anon - I'd go with Welker, Walter and Colston; I think Colston is probably just as risky as Edwards and Crayton this week and why not go with the guy on his come back week?

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
