Hey FF Librarian!!
First of all your awesome and we here in Brooklyn really appreciate all the work you do for us fantasy freaks. Secondly, I'm being offered Brandon Jacobs and Megatron, for LT and Colston.
Is this a no-brainer? Or should I be analyzing all the potential upside that LT could bring.

Where do you find your stats on targets? I have been looking forever on the intertubes!?! Im curious to if I should pick up Kelly or Nate Washington.
Thanks Anon! Love knowing there are folks here in my new neighborhood that are reading my blog. As for the trade offer, that's a tough one for me. I think I'd make the deal.

Colston has been a pretty solid WR1 (esp in Weeks 1 & 2) but he will be facing some tough pass defenses in the next few matchups, and LT has a lot of question marks - combined I think that just makes the trade a good one for you. Jacobs (who has a sweet schedule) and Megatron (seeing lots of targets, shouldn't be long before he really meshes with Stafford) are probably the better deal here.

Peacock, I pulled the target data from the CBSSports league that I am in, but you can also get that data from Sports Data Hub (http://analyze.sportsdatahub.com/stats/basic/PlayerStatistics.aspx) - select "receiving targets" as your offensive stat.

But here's the info you're really looking for: Kelly Washington has been targeted 13 times (and caught 12 of them!) while Nate Washington has been targeted 19 times (7 catches) but he wasn't fully healthy or in the starting lineup in Week 1. Kelly is Q right now with a groin injury so I think I'd be inclined to go with Nate.

Thats exactly what I was thinking....I really like the looks Kelly is getting, but Nate was traded to be a #1....I think he will be more of an asset to my team, rather than a WR3, that is in an offense where Flacco spreads the ball a ton....I see Nate with the bigger upside personally, which is why I agree I have to take him over Kelly. Thanks for all the help! Love your blog.

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
