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 FantasyPlayers.com 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 FantasyPlayers.com 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.
