Good morning and welcome back after a nice, long holiday weekend. Hope everyone had safe and easy travels - and good times with family and friends. I'm guessing each and every one of you is psyched about tonight's game. I mean what a great MNF game tonight! My husband and I are meeting up with my sister (who is a big Pats fan) to watch the first half of the game together tonight. I think we've found a bar in the West Village, but if there are any NYCers out there who have suggestions on good Patriots bars, please let me know!
I'll find out later today if we left enough comments on the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League website to qualify for the $50 gift card this week. It's looking like it might be a close week so I'll just remind you all that the blogger who has the most comments on that site wins a $50 gift card to BWW, which I'll disperse at random to one of you wonderful commenters. So get commenting on my post today for your chance to win 50 bones!
Also, today is your last chance to vote in the 1st Annual FFLibrarian Readers' Choice poll. Nearly 700 of you have responded so far and I can't wait to get the results up later this week.
Finally, a happy birthday to my awesome dad - wish I was with you to celebrate today. We'll toast to you as we watch Monday Night Football!
We've got lots of waiver wire suggestions among today's links - the lucky Week 13 prep is on in full force:
- Before we get to the guys you'll want to target off of waivers, how about a recap of the weekend's games? There are several great sites to turn to:
- Fantasy Hulks' Mr. Monday Morning includes things to love and hate on the fantasy front from Week 12
- I'm so with Rotoworld on the concussions - can't remember a time when we had so many. Take a look at their Week 12 Eyebrow Raisers for this week's good and bad stat lines.
- CBSSports.com's First response: What does Favre have to do? - also includes some possible pickups plus guys who are questionable for Week 13 already.
- This week's MMQB starts off with a lovefest for Kenny Britt. Those of you who visit my BWW post will know how pleased I am with Britt right now.
- Waiver wire links:
- Bruno Boys' Cut Them Loose and Pick Them Up
- FantasyPros911's Week Thirteen Pickups
- Lester's Legends Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em
- ProFootballWeekly.com's Fantasy Ticker: Week Thirteen
- IDP folks should scope out Monk's IDP Waiver Wire Pick Ups
- Those of you with the Dish Network might want to take note that the FFGeeks found out they have free access to the NFL Network through December 25th. Perhaps you do, too..
