Classic links for a fantasy playoffs win

I'm feeling very cultured right now - by a coworker's request I created a Pandora station of classical tunes as background music for a library party in my office suite later today. Knowing an embarrassingly small amount about classical music, I basically just threw on Bach, Beethoven and Mozart and called it a day. Now I'm testing out the station and my sophistication and productivity levels are through the roof;I'm cranking out e-mails and powerpoints like it's my job (oh wait...).

So while I'm at such a high level of efficiency, let's get to today's links:
  • If you don't do this already, I implore you to stay hip to NFL news either via KFFL's Hot Off the Wire segment or Rotoworld's NFL Headlines. Knowing about new coaches, GMs and surgeries will make a big difference, I promise.
  • More KFFL link love - check out their QB, RB, WR, TE, and Kicker non-PPR rankings for the Championship Round, or week 20 as they call it.
  • RotoExperts have a Championship Playoff Round - QB Rankings article if you're struggling with which QBs to start this weekend.
  • If it's RB advice you're looking for this weekend (and what a weird group of RBs if you ask me...) take a look at the Bruno Boys' FF Playoff Rankings - Running Backs (Championship Round). I have to admit that I'm kind of digging Mewelde Moore here - I like Moore in general but I also like his flexibility to receive as well as run. Who knows, maybe the Bruno Boys are right but I might just take a chance on Mewelde...
  • For some 2009 rankings, take a look at what the FFManiaxs have up for their QBs and WRs, which will be updated on a monthly basis as we get closer to the 2009 season.
  • If you're itching for more 2009 advice and want to focus on rookies that might step up big this year, give FFXtreme's 2009 NFL Draft Prospects & Profiles a look.
  • More 2009 prognostications from SI's The Thinking Chair - includes a ranking of the top 15 QBs and WRs and the top 20 RBs for next season.
Finally, an update on the FFLibrarian's Challenge for the NFL postseason - here are the top 10 teams overall for the past two weeks of playoffs:
  1. Los Angeles Pro State
  2. Ryan's Falcons
  3. Topeka Librarians
  4. chirs johnson
  5. bengalsrule
  6. Al Davis Wannabe
  7. Hittites2
  8. Pine Lake Posse
  9. Year of the Vikes
Remember, the #1 team gets a $25 gift card courtesy of the Bruno Boys and the top 3 will acquire some FFLibrarian gear of some sort. Highly desirable, I know.

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
