New contest winner + new site!

It's that time of the week, friends. Time to announce the Preseason Week 2 contest winner...last week I asked for guesses at the receiver with the most receiving yards during the preseason week 2 games. And we've got a winner: Larry Dalton (aka RapidBucFan of Conference 2 in the FFLibrarian League). Congrats on targeting the right wide receiver for this week's contest, Larry! Larry suggested that Troy Williamson would bring in 98 yards this past week and while he underestimated Williamson ever so slightly, Williamson was the lead receiver this week with 147 yards. Larry's prize is a season-long subscription to FFXtreme and all its many tools and wiley ways to keep you at the top of your league.

For the preseason week 3 games, I'm looking for guesses at the quarterback with the most passing yards - if you're interested in winning your own FFXtreme subscription, e-mail me with your QB guess and the number of passing yards you think he'll have. I'm only looking at passing yards so don't worry about sending QB rushing yards or TDs.

In the meantime, I have a new site to send your way - and it's pretty awesome. Check out The Lead Pipe Lock and its "omatic fantasy prognosticator" machine. Two of my favorite articles here are the Rough Starts/Best Starts for both WRs and RBs. Of course if you're in the mood for sleepers, look no further than the omatic's 2009 sleepers.


Adding to the list of sleepers I just drafted in my 18 team league. Chris Henry went way late and with the way he is playing versus the way Coles is playing Henry could possibly unseat Coles for the starting job. But even he doesn't Henry will post great numbers this year.

Is there anything sexier than a chick who can talk FF like this?...

Henry is popular, but don't go too early regardless of what you see on HBO. Remember your friends watch Hard Knocks too.

All kidding aside, Henry has a few tough matchups against Chris Carr twice, Stanford Routt and Antoine Cason. NO rookie matchups or easy ones all season. Unless he changes positions or even in an injury situation, he may have value. Let him fall to you in the late rounds and hope he doesn't beat up a mascot or something and ruin yet another chance.

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
