Happy Cinco de Football

On this fine Cinco de Mayo day, let's all celebrate and turn our attention to fantasy football...
  • A reader pointed me back in the direction of Fantasy Football Breakdown, a site I had not visited in awhile, and I'm already salivating as I look at the various sorting I can do with their offensive line rankings and strength of schedule info. As I've probably made known in the past, I really value o-line information since it really gets to the heart of our bread and butter positions in fantasy football: RBs and QBs. But play around with that site a bit since you can get rankings for all positions for the full fantasy season or just fantasy playoffs.
  • The Hazean takes a look at Dallas receivers sans T.O. I was definitely a Patrick Crayton believer in the past but as The Hazean points out, he might just be the odd man out this season.
  • Fantasy Sharks is getting all "J" here (think Myers-Briggs personality type...) and posting long-term assessments on some of the top rookies in Dynasty Talk: Top 8 Long-Term Rookies.
  • For more on rookie values, see Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's 2nd video of the offseason.
  • Who doesn't love a one-man mock? See's Michael Fabiano duke it out solo in a 3-round fantasy draft, Forte moves up into second spot in latest three-round mock draft.
  • The Fantasy Hulks are loving Steven Jackson this season in S. Jax Wild in '09 - I'm not sure I feel the same way but the article was certainly an interesting read.
  • IDPers rejoice, the FFManiaxs are updating their defensive player rankings. Find your LB, DB and DE rankings here.
All for now - early Cinco de Mayo happy hour anyone?

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
