Losing to my husband in the semifinals is unfortunate

Well I made it to the playoffs in five leagues but am now only moving forward in one of those leagues, The Hazean's Blogger league, which doesn't even end until Week 17. So here's hoping I make it into at least one championship game this year. Meanwhile, my husband beat me in two leagues with a solid McNabb performance and is going to the championship game in all three leagues he plays in - while I find that a bit irritating and would rather that I be the one in 3 championship games, I do take some pride in this since he's been the recipient of a LOT of my fantasy football advice...probably more than one individual should ever receive.

There are a lot of you out there that deserve a hearty pat on the back for making it to the championship game, including but not limited to some loyal readers and friends like Ryan, Matt, Chris, JP and Maureen. Well done!

As the fantasy season ends for many of us I wanted to remind you all that I really don't stop blogging as the season ends - I'm a year-round blogger, baby! So here's a quick list of the things that I will be blogging about well into 2009 in case you needed a reason to keep checking the blog:
  • fantasy playoffs advice through Week 17
  • NFL playoffs fantasy challenges - great way to wean yourself off of FF
  • 2008 season reviews
  • thoughts for 2009 and advice for keeper leagues
  • college bowl game talk- which rookie will be the next big thing?
  • NFL playoffs and Super Bowl info
  • And of course my analysis of FF experts' rankings, which should be available some time in late January/early February
Now enough chit chat - onto today's links!
  • KFFL has Sleepers and Busts up for Week 16 - though I must say I hope they're very, very wrong about Aaron Rodgers' chances against the Bears on a cold, windy night in Chicago.
  • The Hazean's Buy or sell: Nine former "who?!" players poised for fantasy greatness. Not sure I'm buying into the greatness of Cedric Benson, but I love the John Carlson call - he'll be a hot pickup in leagues next year for sure.
  • For waiver wire advice for this final week of many playoffs, I have a few options options (with more to come later in the week, I'm sure):
  • FFManiaxs have their Week 16 start/sit list up already - scope it out for advice on your championship starters!
  • Finally, for those who have been reading along with me all season, you might be well aware that I love o-line advice. My favorite o-line expert is John Tuvey from The Huddle but since his awesome content is often behind a bit of a pay wall, here's another o-line option that should satisfy you o-line lovers a bit - NFL.com's Falcons o-line will be tested vs. Vikings' high-powered defense.
  • If you need some rankings or projections for this coming week, I advise turning towards AccuScore's NFL Forecasted Player Rankings - make sure you select Week 16 to get the results from the simulator for this weekend's games. Also, for those who play other fantasy sports, AccuScore is a great site to turn to for advice in other sporting realms.
All for now - back tomorrow with more!

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
