Late July links

What's happenin' fantasy fans? I've got a fun day ahead: the culmination of a big work project I've been working on for months followed by a bit of a goodbye party for me at the library. I'm not big on being the center of attention (as is obvious by the deep red blush I inevitably take on) but I do love a party...

How'd your draft go?? Or is it not over yet? I hope you share, although I'd understand if you don't. I'm sure your ff opponents in your league might steal some of your apparent targets with that info.

On TO, I agree that he's had nice impact everytime he goes to a new team, but I don't see it happening as much this year. Edwards is no Romo or McNabb (or even Garcia), and TO is getting up there in years. He keeps himself in great shape, sure, but that won't work forever. I think Evans will benefit greatly from TO's presence, but I'd be very cautious about reaching for Owens.

Enjoy your party!
Here's my draft update (it's being done slow, e-mail style):
1.01 Maurice Jones-Drew
2.12 Clinton Portis
3.01 Dwayne Bowe

PPR league makes Bowe really appealing though I don't know how I feel about having him as my top WR; makes me a little uneasy. Love the value of Clinton Portis at the end of the 2nd. No QBs had gone yet so Brees was tempting but I just don't usually go QB so early...

I think looking at strength of schedule is pointless. Since it is difficult to predict year to year which teams/defenses will be good/bad year to year, looking at a teams' schedule to determine potential results is flawed.

If Terrell Owens is the 6th best wide receiver in fantasy football this year, it will be an amazing accomplishment, and a huge career turnaround for an aging receiver.
Last season, Terrell Owens was lined up in the slot BEHIND other Cowboy's receivers in order to help break the jam.
Owens has never been a burner, and if his strength is gone, he becomes a shell of his former self. He is a guy worth gambling on, on the chance of a late career revival, but it is a gamble, unworthy of being dubbed the 6th best WR in football.

Portis at the end of 2 is nice.

I like Bowe as a WR1 in a PPR league. I think you've got a very nice draft going. Good job resisting Brees. Someone else will take him and other QBs sending increased value at RB/WR your way for the 4/5 turn.

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
