iPhone devotion and FF linkage

Last weekend while I was home in Virginia, I was all girly-ed up, ready to attend a baby shower when I apparently lost focus of how to walk down stairs, you know, the simple task of putting one foot in front of the other...and I fell down our cement front steps. I think I did a few pirouettes, hit my head on the hand railing, and finally landed in the bushes with my feet pointed towards the sidewalk. I have no clue how this happened but distinctly remember having the time to tell myself, "this can't possibly be happening right now; but is the iPhone okay?" as I was careening towards the ground. I pulled myself up and hobbled to the front door covered in leaves - my mom reverted into supermom mode as she opened the door to find me holding my head with one hand and keeping my skirt away from my two bloodied legs with the other hand. It wasn't pretty. But what I found most impressive of all is that my mind had time to worry about my iPhone before my own limbs. I think this just goes to show how addicted I've become to this tiny machine. For better or for worse. And I am fine now, by the way, just a bit of a limp and an impressive set of scars developing...

So this morning while I was riding the bus and catching up on football news on my beloved iPhone, I noticed that Gregg Rosenthal is everywhere. In case you can't get enough Gregg from NBC Sports and Rotoworld, they've now merged with ProFootballTalk - check out his latest article on why Reggie Bush is now "Running Back 1A".

I tried not to laugh, but failed. Hope you're okay.

Now that we know you're an iPhone nerd, you need to give us reviews of FF iPhone apps. I'm begging for Yahoo to give us a StatTracker app, but it's currently Flash-based, so I'm not sure that's going to happen.

hey, you slammed the lions. Oh wait, they deserve it.
Brilliant, Matthew Saunders, I love it. I've got a couple of football apps but I'll do some research and see what kind of feedback I can give. I do remember using CBS on my iPhone last season and linking th clean display...I guess the real reviews might have to wait until the start of the season.

And feel free to laugh. It was rather humorous in retrospect.

And anon, I feel I can slam the Lions now that the Broncos are descending into "laughing stock of the NFL" status...

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
