Scouring for new names on waiver wire

What a crazy Sunday. As evidenced by my picks in Fighting Chance Fantasy's Five Game Parlay for the week, I was pretty off on the outcome of a lot of games. And now I have to eat a brussels sprout. I'm not happy about this and my inner child is emerging ("does one bite count?" "what kind of a chaser food can I have ready?").Oh Eagles...how did this happen?

I had a great weekend with my mom in town though I did end up trading in some football for a trip to the MoMA, so I've been catching up on the big football news from yesterday. If you also missed any of the games yesterday, there are a few good recap articles out there. So onto today's links!
I'm sure my regular readers know how excited I am about tonight's MNF game - go Broncos!! Eddie Royal is tweeting how ready he is for the game with a link to the MNF theme song, and frankly I couldn't agree more!

Good luck to your Broncos tonight.

Thanks for the link.

my wife and I have made this several times and we were both pleasantly surprised by how tasty it is. I was forced to have brussel sprouts all the time as a kid and hated them... this recipe makes them pretty good:

Canned or fresh?
If fresh, steamed with a touch of butter & seasonings. Do not over cook. Not bad. Canned? Your bumming.

You going pull off win number two? Gotta be hard watching Brandon beating your 96 player league team.

I have 2 trades that I am discussing with 2 different owners. Do you think I should make them?

1st -
I give up D. Jackson
I get Mendenhall
*This deal is mine if I want it. The other guy said he'll accept it right away.

2nd -
I give up Portis and Sanana Moss
I get Steve Smith.
***I do not know if this guy will accept yet. Smith is currently getting shutout today and he said he'd 'consider it'.

I am desperately trying to trade Portis for the best available WR because by giving up Jackson I'm going to be very thin at WR.

Here is my current roster -
QB - Rivers
Flex - Favre
RB - AP
RB - Benson
WR - White
WR - Jackson
WR - Moss
TE - Shiancoe
K - Nedney
D - Vikings

Bench:
Portis
B. Wells
Forsett
F. Jones
S. Greene
M. Wallace
J. Gage
J. Hanson (1 week only for bye)

If I make both deals here would be new roster
Rivers
AP
Benson
Mendy
White
Smith
Wallace/Gage
Shiancoe
Nedney
Vikings

This is a 12 team PPR league which allows us to play any position at Flex (4 points per pass TD, 6 points per rush/receiving TD)

Sean - Personally I like your roster as is better. Getting Mendy would be nice, but you'd leave yourself awfully thin at WR.

I'd rather use a QB than a RB as my flex. I assume Favre has much more points than Mendy and probably even Benson.
Sean - I agree with Lester here, your roster now is better than it would be with a trade. Which Steve Smith is involved?

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
