Who doesn't bowl better to "Here I Go Again"?

Hi fantasy friends - I'm about to head off to my bowling league for the night where I swear I play better when the jukebox is rocking out some Whitesnake, but first I wanted to post a couple of FFLibrarian-related afternoon links for you. My daily blog with is up, No Bull From the Fantasy Librarian, where I discuss my crazy sister and of course more football links with advice on sleepers, busts and who's hot for Week 6.

And my weekly A Librarian's Touch column with the Bruno Boys is up - Which Top 10 Running Backs will remain strong in 2008? I looked at the top 10 RBs at this point one year ago compared to the top ten at the end of the 2007 season - 7 of the 10 were already set at this point last year. While I'm sure that number varies year to year, I looked at which 3 RBs I don't think will make the top 10 cut come January.

Also, while I won't have a blog up here until tomorrow afternoon at the earliest, my blog on will be up sometime in the morning so feel free to check it out on the left side of the page with the other NFL Analysis if you need your daily link fix.

I've found that I bowl better when the music is good as well. This summer I sucked through two whole games of Michael Bolton or something similar, complaining the entire way. Only to finally come alive thanks to some much needed Zeppelin.

Your (great) column on top 10 RBs mentioned who wouldn't be there at season's end...but who will take their place?

In reference to the "No Bull" article...I'm pretty sure Chad Pennington went to Marshall as in therefore not a "former Vol" as you mentioned. Keep up the good work!!!

during many nights of drunkin bowling back in college i have determined that AC/DC is the best bowling music with Hell's Bells being the best overall bowling song...this is a proven fact!

Desean Jackson, Lance Moore, or Earnest Graham in the flex spot?

Can start 2 RB, 2 WR, and 1 RB/WR:

RB: Steven Jackson, Frank Gore, Earnest Graham, and Ricky Williams

WR: Lance Moore, Larry Fitzgerald, Roddy White, Roy Williams, and Desean Jackson

What should be my lineup?
I'll try to get a little Zeppelin and AC/DC on the juke box next time I bowl - nice calls, guys.

Anon, you must have an inside line into my brain. I am writing about that exact question in tomorrow's column for the Times. I'll have a link up to it tomorrow. Glad to know there might be at least one interested reader!

Oh man, thanks for catching my Pennington mistake, anon. I should've known that Pennington is a Knoxville native, not a former Vol. My apologies to Marshall fans, Pennington fans and Knoxvillians everywhere who knew how terribly wrong I was...

As for the start questions...
1. In the flex I would go with Graham; RBs are usually a good call but I think SF has a decent pass defense and if Colston is back in the mix, Moore might have a more (ha) limited week.

2. I'd go with Jackson, Gore and Williams in the flex (though I could be talked into Graham very easily) and Fitz and White at WR.

I won't bowl unless Strawberry Alarm Clock is playing. I'll stand there holding my bowling ball staring at the pins and absolutely refuse to roll otherwise.

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
