Starting, Sitting...in 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 FantasyPlayers.com 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

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
