Afternoon linkage and draft update

Well my plans for the Buffalo Wild Wings draft have changed - unfortunately I won't be at the Brooklyn BWW tonight since it's Wing Tuesdays and due to the wings madness, there's no guarantee that I could snag a table. Since that could cause significant drafting problems, as in there would be no drafting on my part, I'll be switching things up and drafting from home. I have no idea if any local readers were actually planning on coming, but if so, my apologies. Perhaps I can pull together a FFLibrarian Happy Hour somewhere here in NYC to make up for the last minute change of plans. Maybe a Monday Night Football game watch/happy hour in a few weeks? Would any of you be up for that?

Now to give you a little something for afternoon entertainment - more links!
  • FantasyPros911 have their Week 1 rankings and projected fantasy points up - QB, RB, WR, TE, kicker, D/ST, even IDPs (DL, LB, DB). I'm not sure what scoring system they're using (ppr, non-ppr?) but I'm guessing it's a pretty standard non-ppr one.
  • Take a look at ESPN for more Week 1 projections (yardage, TDs, and fantasy points).
  • In case you haven't found Fantasy Sports Central's cheat sheet which averages position rankings from various FF sites (very similar of course to my average top 100 rankings position), definitely check it out - love how you can pick and choose your sites.
  • Take a look at FFStarters' blog for a reminder that you always start your studs (as long as they're not injured or suspended, etc) in week 1.
  • Tony Holm graces us with his first Prognosticator of the regular season - while this comes with the advice to start your studs this week, you may want to scope it out for a sense of which teams are up against easy or tough run and pass defenses. Keep in mind that this becomes a far more powerful tool as time goes on - and a few weeks into the season we'll have a much better picture of this year's defenses' strengths and weaknesses.

LOTS more rankings and projections are coming tomorrow!

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
