Tampa Bound

I'm watching the Winter X Games right now and realizing once again how addictive it is to watch the superpipe. And wishing that I was in Aspen to enjoy some of the sweet snow that's coming down there. But then again, I leave tomorrow morning for Tampa and am certainly grateful to be leaving snow and 20 degree temps in my wake for a little sun and sand. Freckles and a possible sunburn (no matter how much sunscreen I apply), here I come!

So I thought I'd throw up a few links tonight since I'll be traveling and chatting up fantasy sports folks for most of the day tomorrow. But before I get into the links I want to point out a new search feature that I have over on the right sidebar of my site - it's run by a Boulder-based company called Lijit and when you search you'll have the option of searching just the FFLibrarian blog or searching a predetermined group of sites that I've set up as my network. I trust all of those sites in my network to provide you with quality material, so I think this Lijit feature is an awesome way to really focus your search down to some of the best fantasy football resources on the Internet. Plus, if you still can't find what you're looking for, you can expand your search to the rest of the web. I'm still playing around with it a bit but like what I see so far.

Anyway, to the links!
  • Is Thigpen worth sticking with or should the Chiefs look elsewhere for their QB? I can't help but think of Derek Anderson's mighty quick fall from fame this season but I do think Thigpen has some promise.
  • Just a reminder that the mock draft I'm participating in is being tracked on FFXtreme - and has quite an informed crew of discussants on the forum. I've selected for three rounds so far and have an all-star crew of DeAngelo Williams, Chris Johnson and Brandon Marshall so far. I'm planning on going with another WR next but I'm curious about the QB talent that will be on the board then, too.
  • SportingNews.com's 2009 QB rankings: The 'Big 33' QBs for '09 - maybe it's the fact that I dislike the Chargers more every year (they keep beating my teams!) but I just can't accept Rivers as the #4 QB for 2009.
  • Since rookie RBs have been all the rage lately, I recommend scoping out Football Jabber's Top Ten NFL Draft Running Back Prospects - which of these names will be the guy to have in 2009?
  • If you're in the mood for some historical Super Bowl knowledge, check out the link that the Fifth Down provides in Everything You Wanted to Know About the Super Bowl (and don't forget to scope the comments since the NYT editor's comment made me laugh out loud).
I'll be back soon with more links - I hope you all are finalizing your Super Bowl plans for next weekend!

Have fun in Tampa.

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
