Post-holiday weekend fantasy review

Greetings fantasy footballers. Hope you all had a great holiday weekend - I'm struggling to be here at work today after so many days off; fortunately for me I had some foresight 6 months ago and made a dentist appointment for this afternoon. Since I'm the rare individual that actually looks forward to going to the dentist (love a good cleaning!), my afternoon is looking pretty sweet.

But a morning full of fantasy football links sounds pretty good, too, eh? I don't know about you all but somehow I've found myself in a handful of must-win situations in order to make it to the playoffs so I'm still sweating tonight's game - and even the Week 14 games. Where to turn? To the experts...
  • First, I am so sorry Cleveland fans. What a rough turn of events over the past few weeks (wait, past few years? Past SEVERAL years?) and now with Derek Anderson's injury I can only imagine how hard it is to be a Browns fan. My sympathies. If you missed any of the injury news this week, turn to The Hazean's Monday morning rehab for an update.
  • Check out the Fantasy Sharks' On the Rise, On the Fall for thoughts on which of your players might be of more help down the stretch than others. I thought I might see Clinton Portis' name on here - I love him but he had a tough week against the Giants and faces the Ravens next - definitely not ideal.
  • For info on which guys to snag off the waiver wire, take a look at Lester's Legend's Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em - Ryan Grant owners I hope you've already got Brandon Jackson in mind or on your roster. I'm not convinced that Grant could have returned after all.
  • Or scope out more waiver wire advice from these guys:
  • And finally, if you missed any of the action from the weekend and are wondering which players rounded out the Top 5 in each position, see Rotoworld's Sunday Schooled: All Day and All Night.
Enjoy your Monday and I'll be back tomorrow with more links!

i have a request that needs a librarians touch... do you know of/ have/could you make a list of best cold weather/ crappy weather kickers. looking for that 15 to 3 game with the guy kicking 5 FG's on my team. i need an edge in the playoffs !
Lindell. He made a bunch straight within 40. Considering he plays in Buffalo, he's seen it all.

He missed two this week, which could free him up.

You're not showing much faith in Ken Dorsey FFL.

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
