Moving to a cubicle world - plus start/sit for Week 12

As I think I mentioned awhile back, the library that I work in (yes, I seriously am a librarian for those of you who are new to the blog) is under a massive construction project that will transform two floors of the library. There has been a solid amount of chaos, noise, dust, and destruction right outside my office for the past 4 months, but today I am moving to a new office - I will soon be ensconced in a cubicle, though one that has glass walls looking out over the flatiron mountains of Boulder - in fact, here's my new view to the left (thanks to my coworker Alison for the great photo). Beautiful, no? So today is sure to be a busy one since I am somehow the point person in my department for this move. This means I might not get the consensus start/sit list compiled until tonight or tomorrow but don't worry, it will be posted. In the meantime, enjoy the list of start or sit links below and check out my post from yesterday for several others.
Also, a few other links for you today including my Fifth Down column for the Times - Fantasy Football: The Surprises Never Cease and Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's latest video - Playoff Run Week 12.

Also, this great FF article in today's Wall Street Journal - "Fantasy Sports in a War Zone"

I have to say I hate you for your window view! I went to school in Colorado, so I do remember how beautiful the Front Range is. Living in IL, I have nothing but corn and soybean fields for a view. Well, and my office looks out on hotel windows (don't ask!).
Stephen - thanks for the WSJ link. I'm enjoying all the FF articles they seem to have this season and I think it's all thanks to journalist Nando Di Fino - so kudos to Nando.

bigboid - I can send you a daily photo of the flatirons if that would help transport you back to your CO days. And since I went to school in IL, perhaps you can reciprocate with IL views. Though really, I don't think there was a single field in Evanston. Every spare square was being developed...

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
