Greetings and welcome to Week 4 prep. I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's games as much as I did. I think I'll go 6-3 in my 9 leagues this week - I'll take that! Best of all is another win in the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League. I'll be going 3-0 and am hoping to keep my claim to the #1 spot in the league...I'll be sure to brag about being one step closer to winning the league (and subsequent trip to Miami and party with Trey Wingo) on the BWW site once the win is official. Thank you, Aaron Rodgers, for returning to fantasy awesomeness; not sure I could have done it without you.
Now to today's links...
- Speaking of fantasy awesomeness and lack thereof...oh, Laurent Robinson. I talked up your potential to friends and readers alike and now you've got an ankle injury (update - Robinson's injury more serious than originally thought, he might be out for the rest of the year). So unfortunate. But really, truly unfortunate for the Rams. What a mess.
- I am going to relish my 3-0 Broncos while I can...it's about to get ugly in Denver, my friends. Rough schedule ahead. But that said, nice work, Buckhalter and Moreno. For some thoughts on players that are On the Rise, On the Fall, take a look at FantasySharks.com.
- The Hazean has some Early Waiver Wire Thoughts up - right now I'm feeling sorry for my father-in-law who dropped Glen Coffee already...and now has an uphill waiver wire battle to get him back.
- More waiver wire advice from the FootballDocs. Love how quickly these guys get waiver suggestions up - and they don't sacrifice quantity or quality to do it - it's awesome.
- Another place for solid waiver advice: ProFootballWeekly's Fantasy Ticker: Week 4 or AOL Fanhouse's Waiver Wire Wonders.
- This should be of interest for future weeks - the Lead Pipe Lock used KC Joyner's rankings to put together Cornerback and Safety Rankings with notes on which matchups are easy, moderate, or tough and what that means for your WRs, TEs, and QBs.
- Again on the IDP front, if you're thinking of picking up some new defenders, see what Monk has to say in Week 4 NFL Fantasy Football 2009 Waiver Wire Pick Ups.
- This week's MMQB, Palmer, Favre and an unsung receiver added to Week 3 drama made me think a bit more about the Bengals. There are lots of you out there who thought this was the Bengals year to shine and a 23-20 win against the reigning SB champs certainly sounds good. But did this game say more about the 2-1 Bengals (who beat the Packers and the Steelers - and lost to my Broncos!) or the 1-2 Steelers (who have lost to the Bears and Bengals but beat the Titans in OT)??
- Last year I blogged on the Fifth Down about watching the movie 10 Yards - it's now viewable on YouTube so if you've got some time, take a look and enjoy.
