I'm 4-0! Oh....and 0-4

Well for every big win somewhere there's a big loss, right? I'm now 4-0 in the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League and am thrilled that Aaron Rodgers pulled through with a pretty decent fantasy outing (he threw for a career high of 384 yards)...but I'm also an embarrassing 0-4 in my own monster 96-team FFLibrarian League. I suppose I'd rather be doing well in the league where I'm gunning for a trip to Miami during the Super Bowl but frankly I'd like to win everywhere! The rest of my leagues are far more pedestrian with a smattering of 1-3, 2-2, and 3-1 records. So here's hoping you all are sitting pretty with 4-0 records.

Now Rodgers has a bye next week so I've got my eye out on QBs right now in particular - let's do a quick new round-up of QBs from CBSSports.com. First up, Donovan McNabb. I'm quite eager for his return and it looks like he's expected to play this weekend. Meanwhile Coach Mora is optimistic that Matt Hasselbeck will also return this week and the Titans are planning on sticking with Kerry Collins.

Let's start off the rest of the links with some waiver wire advice:
  • The Sports Outlaw's Waiver Wire - Week 5 is feeding into my growing Kenny Britt love. 
  • In Waiver Wire Work for Week 5, Pigskin Addiction throws in some unexpected names like Lamont Jordan, Vince Young, and Rashad Jennings.  
  • Hatty Waiver Wire Guru's Week 5 waiver thoughts are up in video style. Remember, Hatty specializes in deep league suggestions.  
  • Get your waiver thoughts from NFL.com via video or text in RBs Mendenhall, Harrison will be hot names on fantasy waiver wire - though I think you're a lucky FFer if either one is still available in your league. 
  • Rotoworld's Early Waiver Wired Look has a snapshot of everything that deep and shallow leagues might need. Check back later today for the full column.  
  • Finally, if you'd like even more links out to the expert waiver advice of the week, see what the Washington Post's Fantasy Check has pulled together in Wired Up: Week 5.
A few more solid links you'll want to check out:
  • I don't think I've linked to Junkyard Jake's Pass Targets chart before but it's a particularly good one since it includes data for the season and the current week. Plus, I like the red zone targets data - good stuff.  
  • FOXSports.com's Week 4 surprises offers up a bunch of tidbits from this weekend's games.
  • Or take a look at Rotoworld's Questions Answered - one of the reasons I love Rotoworld is because Gregg always adds a little something that I didn't already know. I can't believe the Bears only ran 50 plays all game - crazy. On Saturday, my Northwestern Wildcats had run 50 plays far before the 2nd half arrived (yeah more than a little unusual but hey, they won the game!).
I'm off to go work on my weekly column for the Bruno Boys!

Congrats, Sara! Hope you can keep it up!

I appreciated your help last week and am back again with a RB dilemma. Dropped FWP last week due to the injury instead of J. Jones and Mendenhall played so well, I think I'll leave him there. Picked up Coffee but didn't get anything out of him although he played well. Would like to pickup J. Harrison, I think, but like the rest of my boys:

D. Williams
D. Brown
R. Grant (on bye)
J. Jones
G. Coffee

It's a TD only league with double points for receiving TDs by RBs.

I could drop J. Jones and start Coffee (vs. Atl) and Harrison (vs. Buf), both seem to have easier opponents than Williams (Wash) and Brown (TN).

Thoughts?

Thanks, Mary

I'm 3-1 in four of my five leagues, but the one that I'm 0-4 in frustrates me more than the joy I take in the other leagues.

Keep that undefeated season going, although I'm hoping your Broncos don't as they play my Pats this weekend.

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
