Looking for a Football Monster

One of my coworkers (yes, there are other librarians that pay attention to fantasy sports, though we are a rather rare breed) showed me a site called Basketball Monster that he uses for his fantasy basketball league. If you take a look at the Player Rankings page, you'll see just a mass of different player statistics that you can use to adjust your customized player rankings. Or you can see which players are hot right now - or mosey on over to Baseball Monster for the same sort of number-crunching fun with baseball. This begs the question: where's the Football Monster?

Read on for more links on this Tuesday afternoon:
  • Check out my Team Needs: NFC South & West article for Rotoworld - agree or disagree with me? I'd love to hear about it.
  • My husband was an athlete at a small, liberal arts school and always has some love in his heart for the diamond in the rough from small schools - if you find yourself in the same camp, take a look at's Small School Studs part 1 and part 2 for some insight on those hidden draft gems.
  • If you've been looking for a mock draft that includes draft-day trades, then look no further than the FFManiaxs' mock which includes moves like sending Braylon Edwards to the Chargers...not sure I see that as the most likely place for Edwards, but hey, it's a wide open playing field out there.
  • The Bruno Boys are making some conjectures for the 2009 season in 2009 NFL Bold Predictions, some of which might surprise you...
  • Finally, I just really don't know what to say about this snuggie competitor of sorts. I mean really? Really??

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
