Bar shuffleboard league?

At bowling this week I had a junior league/kids' coach give me tips on how to bowl - kind of sad when your bowling is clearly calling out for some basic help, no? I think at this point I've embraced the fact that bowling is not going to be my strong point and perhaps I need to become a weekly bar shuffleboard player. I think I could rock at that activity though I can't really imagine a league of bar shuffleboard players. Does such a thing exist?

So if you live in the Boulder/Denver area and would like to make a little money and help out a fantasy football website, think about stopping by Sports Data Hub's usability testing on Wednesday, March 18 on the CU-Boulder campus. Contact Matt Duncan to sign up or you can e-mail me and I'll send the details your way.

If you don't live in Colorado, well then I just have links to offer you...
  • I have T.O. in my keeper league so I am of course interested in what the FFManiaxs have to say in Terrell Owens' Fantasy Football Impact in 2009.
  • I remember a time when I thought Texans RB Chris Brown had a lot of potential - not so much anymore and I'm not sure I trust that he'll bring much to the Texans' backfield and vulture some TDs, but see what Gregg Rosenthal has to say in Chris Brown tries to make a comeback.
  • Not sure I'm feeling the same love for Dustin Keller in 2009 as I've seen in several mock drafts and rankings; I'm not convinced about Kellen Clemens, I guess. Or perhaps it's the Kellen to Keller combo that I'm getting stuck on here...but I think Lester's Legends Top Ten Tight Ends for 2009 ranking of Keller as the 10th TE is just about right, maybe even a little high for my taste.
  • If you're looking for some advice on how last year's rookie WRs might pan out for 2009, take a look at SportsBuff's Dynasty - Rookie WRs Review Part 1.
  • Or get more dynasty rankings courtesy of FantasyFootball.com, which has rankings for QBs, RBs and WRs up.
All for now - have great weekends!

I just think Keller will be leaned on with Clemens in there.

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
