Week 7 (already?!) prep

This might be a quick post - I've got a final round interview with a library here in NYC and need to head out the door before long. I'll try to get another post up this afternoon with more links plus some info on this week's FFLibrarian weekly contest with 365FantasySports (password is book7 for you eager beavers out there).

Last night I had about 17 different windows open on my computer, working on a presentation that's part of my interview today, working on my Bruno Boys article, and working on my links for the NY Times' Fifth Down. My night work session was peppered with cheers from our downstairs neighbor who is quite clearly a Yankees fan. Speaking of baseball, big night tonight in our house since my husband is a big Dodgers fan...

Anyway, here are some quick morning links:

Finally, I'm playing a new fantasy sport this year, my fine readers: fantasy basketball. I'm starting the prep but would love to hear about any favorite fantasy basketball sites that you all use. Not sure I'm ready to whip up a Fantasy Basketball Librarian site quite yet, but that's on the horizon.

If you are looking for some more Week 7 player rankings, www.fantasy-football-first.com has theirs posted. We also link to the FFLibrarian! Thanks.
Thanks Lester. I knew you covered fantasy bball, and trust me, that will be one of my go-to sites for sure!

Jason, I'll probably post about fantasy basketball every once in awhile and will be sure to link out to my favorites.
Thanks for the link!

Just saw this post and thought of your site...maybe you could customize the shirt or something, hah.

In addition to givemetherock.com, I also like fantasybasketballdaily.com.

FYI, we will be running BOTH daily fantasy NBA and NCAA contests at http://365fantasysports.com.

Hope you will join us for hoops as well! :) - David

FHoops sites for beginners that I *strongly* recommend:

BuserSports.com
Start here. Period.

BasketballMonster.com
(especially if you play H2H or if you have any unusual league scoring options) BBM is a free site with option to pay for premium services. I've never upgraded there, but the free stuff is so good that I almost want to upgrade just to say Thank You. Use the 'values' option, which tells you whether Dirk's 88% FT is better than Kevin Martin's high volume 86%...

For more intermediate FCagers
HoopsAddict.com
HoopsHype.com
FantasyBasketballCafe.com
DraftExpress.com (to form your own opinions about rookies and 2nd/3rd year players - especially for keeper leagues)

Enjoy fantasy basketball, and don't hesitate to pm Dangerous Beans / Sicksers! / EshInPennsyltucky for hoops advice.

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
