First of the draft guides!

I'm back from a family trip to Michigan and am gearing up for another family weekend - we have 6 of our nearest and dearest coming in this week for my husband's graduation - while also trying to get some finishing touches on our condo before we put it on the market next week. So if my posts are short and sweet this week, don't be surprised since I think my mind is in about ten different places right now. But don't worry, my mind is always on football to some extent...
  • Pigskin Addiction has a little something that those playing in IDP (individual defensive player) leagues might like - a 2009 Top 100 Rookies ranking including IDPs. Good stuff.
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru is starting to crank back into action for the football season - if you found Hatty's advice helpful during the 2008 season and are in the market for dynasty player rankings, then consider buying the premium draft guide that he's preparing for $5. Not a bad price at all for advice from a group of knowledgeable guys. I'm sure there are many, many more draft guides to come so prepare yourselves!
  • I'm a DeAngelo Williams fan - I like what he did in '08 and don't envision the Panthers changing up their backfield a ton after the great success they had. But it's true, he is hard to rank...take a look at Pancake Blocks' Tough to Rank: DeAngelo Williams and voice your opinion on where he should be drafted.
  • I'm also on the LT train this season - I think the guy's 2008 season has scared a few people off, so I can guarantee that he'll come at a bargain (unless you play with someone who hasn't looked at rankings in 2-3 years) and provide you with pretty solid numbers now that he's healthy and running behind a reinforced o-line. Remember, LT's worst season was still 4th best in the AFC. Niiiiiice.
  • Seems to me the news that Kevin Curtis had a second surgery in mid-April will bump up Jeremy Maclin's value a bit. Lots of young receiving talent in Philly with DeSean Jackson and Maclin in the picture...
  • Still in the market for some NFL Draft analysis? Take a look at Ask the's list of best and worst draft picks.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
