5-0 Broncos!

Waahaahaaha! The Broncos are 5-0!! I mean no offense to my sister and other Pats fans but I'm so psyched about yesterday's win. So good! As evidenced by my extreme usage of exclamation points here. I didn't catch the game other than about 2 minutes (so yes, I saw the ridiculous socks) since yesterday was my husband's grandmother's funeral (sorry to those I didn't respond to with start/sit advice) but I have it DVRed and waiting for me back at home. I'm still in Tennessee until tomorrow afternoon and my postings today and tomorrow are going to be on the late side - good thing there are lots of great sites to scope out.
  • Fantasy Hulks reviews the Sunday games and flaunts the Miles Austin call they made in Mr. Monday Morning: Week 5.
  • FFGeekBlog lists all of the 2 TD receivers yesterday in Receivers gone wild! Wow.
  • Rotoworld has a nice review of 5 games yesterday in Cardiac Cats Strike Again.
  • Another great wrap-up of the Week 5 games from Football Outsiders - Audibles at the Line.
  • The Fifth Down's Is Anyone Afraid of the Broncos? provided me with a little snippet of McDaniels and his post-game celebration. Mine was somewhat similar (but not quite as many full-body fist pumps) as we cruised through rural Tennessee and I got game updates from my iPhone.
  • Fighting Chance Fantasy asked a handful of us to participate in his Five Game Parlay competition - last week was my first week and I didn't do so well. Fortunately I'm on the rebound this week, especially if the Jets win by more than 1.5 points.
  • Monday Morning Rehab from The Hazean reviews Megatron's knee situation and updates on Coffee, Cotchery, and Eli.
  • A few waiver thoughts:
  • MMQB's Broncos, Bengals open some eyes with impressive Week 5 wins - I learned a little something about Orton: his first pick all season came at the end of the first half this week. There's a lot of Orton love oozing out of Peter King right now.
  • Love how quickly Hatty Waiver Wire Guru has his Week 6 Studs, Starts, Sleepers and Bench players up for this next weekend's games. Keep in mind that he'll be adjusting the names here as the week progresses.
I'll have suffered my first loss in the BWW All-Star Blogger League this week (can I blame it on Rodgers being on a bye?) and my first win in the FFLibrarian monster league. Toss in a 5-0 Broncos and a 4-2 Northwestern Wildcats and this was a fairly successful football weekend for me; I'll take that!

Congrats to your Broncos. As a Pats fan, it's tough to fall to them, but I have to give your guys credit.

I listed my Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em waiver wire picks for Week 5 here if anyone is interested.

I'm OK with giving you your first win in the 96-er league, even kind of OK with the Broncos winning (big, big game coming next Monday) because it looks like I'm going to win in my main league despite Calvin Johnson and Mike Sims-Walker being two of my three starting WRs. Roddy White took good care of me for my faith in him.

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
