Cruising the streets in Broncos gear

Oh my friends, it will be close to 70 degrees here in NYC today - I've got a long walk around the neighborhood in my future today...in my Broncos gear!! You can all imagine just how excited I am about tonight's Monday Night Football game. Should be a good one and I've got my fingers crossed for a big win in Denver...

Lots to get to today:
  • Let's start off with the fact that yesterday's Battle of the Bays went to Tampa Bay. Unreal. Did anyone see that coming? Ryan from Fighting Chance Fantasy sure didn't, which means it's time for him to fulfill his end of the brussels sprouts bargain (he'll be enjoying his sprout with bacon thanks to a reader's suggestion here on FFLibrarian). You can also scan my parlay picks for this week and see how, um, not good I am at this.
  • Take a look at this week's MMQB: Let the hype begin - ahh, the Colts-Pats game is coming and there's some excitement in my family (my Colts-loving husband vs my Pats-loving sister...).
  • If you missed any of this weekend's games, like my sister who was stuck hanging out in an airport while awaiting new travel plans after a canceled flight, then you're going to want to scope out some of these recaps. To be honest, even if you were cruising through all the games getting updates, you will still find value in these game reviews, so scope out either CBSSports.com's First Response: Some studs just didn't deliver OR Rotoworld's Beyond the Box Score: Comeback Kids.
  • Or take a look at Fantasy Hulks' Mr. Monday Morning - I have Warner and Cutler on one of my teams and had to pick between the two this week. Ultimately the point difference wasn't huge since they both had nice games, but I was pleased to have picked Warner and his massive stat line.

  • We've got a slew of waiver wire articles up:

Thanks for the link.

I need your Broncos to keep Big Ben from having a monster game. I'm talking like less than 350 yards and 3 TDs.

Now if 100 yards and a score could go to Santonio Holmes, and 100 yards and a score could go to Mike Wallace as well, I'd be a happy camper.

Even if it goes the Meatloaf route and 2 out of 3 ain't bad, that will be OK.

Good luck to your Broncos and enjoy the game tonight!

Yeah for me, it was Warner vs. Flacco and I went with wacko for flacco.. :( Now, I'm down 23 with Steelers D and Heath Miller to play. If it wasn't for that fact, I might join in with your Bronco's love. :)

Oh man Sara, I don't want to eat a brussel sprout, but thanks for pointing it out to your readers! Can you read the sarcasm? I am SO not looking forward to this and I don't know who I dislike more right now, Aaron Rodgers or Josh Freeman. Any suggestions for a food/drink chaser out there????

Hi Sara,
Sorry bout the broncos, but I am here more to talk bout Denver, I actually like in NJ and got a chance to attend a friends wedding in Denver over the weekend. Denver is beautiful!!! Got a chance to check out local stuff and was just totally amazed. Its so flat and the rockies are just mind blowing, had a good steak as well! my first time going west but was a very pleasant experience. It was just fitting that broncos were playing home, but the weirdest part was to see so many steelers fans in the area???? Even in the airport returning home, saw steelers fans coming out of the airport!!! anyways Denver is beautiful and would definetely go more often if get a chance.

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
