McNabb and Ryan will be Top 5 fantasy QBs

What's happenin' football fans? It's a beautiful day here in Boulder, my family is flying in for a long weekend and I'm about to take about 5 days of vacation to see my family and then head to Moab, Utah for a few days...what could be better? How about a few football links?
  • Rookie IDP analysis - love it. Can you tell I'm a sucker for basically anything that has to do with IDPs? There just isn't enough IDP analysis out there - this one comes from FFManiaxs in Fantasy Impact of 2009 Rookie IDPs.
  • Brett Favre, I don't even know what to say about you...
  • When you put your mind to it, there are all sorts of nerdy things you can do with fantasy stats - I'm pleased to see FFToolbox has pulled together a Fantasy Football Consistency spreadsheet - I mean who doesn't love consistency in FF? I like seeing Roddy White's nice growth over the past few years and of course you can see the Jeremy Shockey demise here, too. Very cool. I'll be returning to this time and time again over the offseason I imagine.
  • Enjoy a little CBS Sports' Faceoff: The first rookie RB taken should be...take a look at that second question about veterans with improved draft stock - I must admit I think I love both Donovan McNabb and Matt Ryan this year. Can I be so bold as to say both will be top 5 fantasy QBs? Oh yeah, that's right, top 5.
  • What to do with Pierre Thomas? I think this is a great question and I'm glad to see Rotoworld attacking it so early in the season prep in Pancake Blocks' Tough to Rank: Pierre Thomas.
  • Finally, NFC North fans rejoice - there's a great write-up on the division from Football Outsiders though I'm sure the Vikings review would be all topsy-turvy with a Favre addition.
All for now - my posts might be a bit sporadic for the next week or so but I'll be sure to get any crucial links up ASAP!

Question you title the posting "McNabb and Ryan will be Top 5 fantasy QBs" but no info or artical. did you have one.

I for one am very intringed as to you thoughts as to what donavan is going to do behind his new line and with to new wepons in the mix.

No one likes to toss it around in the league as much as Andy Reid.
I agree that McNabb will be a top five QB. I have him projected as the second best fantasy QB this season.

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
