Rockstar links for Week 11

I am a rockstar. Okay, not really, the closest I've ever come to rocking an instrument was the recorder back in 3rd grade. But I was living like a rockstar last night, somehow hanging out with my husband's old college buddies until 3 AM. As someone who is frequently in bed by 11 most Wednesday nights, this was a rare occurrence. When we left the bar though there were still plenty of others going strong on a Wednesday night; I mean, who are these people?! How do so many folks have schedules that allow them to be out and about like that in the wee hours of a Wednesday night turned to Thursday morning? Well it's New York City, friends, it's New York City.

So big surprise, I'm running late today with my post. Good thing I have a lot of awesome material to make up for the slowness of my morning post.
Enjoy the Thursday Night Football game and I'll be back tomorrow with even more start/sit links!

With the trade deadline coming up tomorrow in a league of mine, I'm just wondering who everyone thinks has more keeper value, Mike Sims-Walker or Sidney Rice.

Our league rotates the number of keepers you get each season in a 2-1-2-1... manner. After this season we just keep 1. If you keep a guy you've held previously then you lose your first round pick otherwise the player gets applied to where they were drafted in the prior year. Sims-Walker and Rice were both undrafted which means they would be 17th round picks if held.

My team is in last and I'll get the first overall pick if that holds, so I'm just looking towards next year. I have Sims-Walker but was thinking about offering Roddy White for Rice (my WRs are White, Jennings, Ward, MSW, and Burleson). My other options to keep would be Donald Brown (rd 8) or Shonn Green (rd 17). Nobody else on my team is really worth losing a pick at their respective draft location.

Thanks!

Personally I think MSW has a better keep value. Favre is going to retire(again) next year and I really can't fathom who the Vikes are going to pick up to replace him and play at the current level he has been in. MSW on the other hand has proved himself to be start worthy for the Jags and Garrard will be back again next year looking for his favorite target.

I agree. I would hold on to Sims-Walker especially if return yards don't get points in your league.

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
