NFL playoff rankings and cheat sheets

Happy New Year's Eve! I hope you all have some fun plans for tonight whether fun be hanging out with family and friends at home or out and about. I'm not usually big on going on out for a crazy NYE (it's safe to say my mom probably parties harder than I do most years) but tonight I think I'm going dancing. I love to dance, everyone in my family loves to dance, as evidenced by our dance floor activity at my sister's recent wedding...but my husband, not so much. Fortunately where there's dancing, there's beer so I think that should keep us both happy.
  • Rankings for the playoffs are everywhere! FFXtreme has ranked all the key players for this year's playoffs by position in Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings.
  • I love the game previews that AccuScore provides and this week is no exception. Take a look at their thoughts for each matchup:
  • Wondering about the team it would've taken to be the most awesome team in fantasy football this year? Scope out the Fantasy Football Champs' 2008 All-Fantasy Team. If anyone had this exact team, I would love to hear about it.
  • No-Offseason.com has your Top Fantasy Options for NFL Playoffs - as noted here, I am loving Dallas Clark as a playoffs TE; great matchup against a Chargers D that's weak on TEs this weekend in particular.
  • I'm intrigued by the new 2010 plan for the Pro Bowl to be played in Miami the week before the Super Bowl. I have a feeling that a lot of people will be unexcited about this change of timing and venue, but it may make the Pro Bowl easier for many to attend...but the timing, it just seems odd.
  • For those of you planning ahead for the 2009 season, FFManiaxs has a quick list of defensive ends for 2009 divided into 9 tiers - they'll be adding linebackers and defensive backs this weekend - January 2009 IDPs Rankings: Defensive Ends.
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru offers up some keeper league thoughts for 2009 in his new video Off Season 1 - I think Hatty will be updating his keeper thoughts throughout the offseason. Good news for everyone.
All for now - I'll be back tomorrow with more links. And remember to sign up for the FFLibrarian's Challenge via NFL.com's postseason fantasy games. The winner will receive a $25 gift card courtesy of the Bruno Boys and the top 3 finishers will wind up with some FFLibrarian gear.

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
