Rolling out Week 11 waiver wire links

The only thing more amazing than the finish to the Colts vs Pats game? Randy Moss's beard. A quick shot of him sans helmet last night showed an impressive beard that caused my husband to muse, "is there any evidence that Randy Moss and Jesus are not one in the same?" which of course caused me to crack up (not intended to offend anyone, fyi...). Anyway, what an amazing game - let's get it all out there: yes, I was pulling for the Colts (my husband is a Knoxville, TN native and thus a huge Peyton fan) but I personally felt that the 4th and 2 call was incredibly ballsy and incredibly good. Would I have done it? Hell no, not a chance, but that's just one of the many reasons that Belichick is the evil mastermind of New England and I am not. And keep in mind that if it had worked there would be a parade in Boston this morning honoring Belichick's genius. Now what we can all hope for is an equally entertaining rematch for the AFC Championship game. If you'd like to see why Advanced NFL Stats' Brian Burke thinks the call was a great one, see what he has to say on the Fifth Down.

Meanwhile throughout the rest of the league there were countless injuries this week. Including one to Kyle Orton, which caused my Broncos to the Skins. I know, I know, I can barely even form coherent sentences after that one. But truth be told, the Skins are one of my favorite teams (hey, I grew up outside of DC!), and I've been feeling badly for them this whole season. I did not see the game, just followed the stats and highlights, so I don't know for sure how it all went down. But I know this - the Broncos are in a world of trouble.

Onto today's links:
Don't forget to get your voice heard in the 1st Annual FFLibrarian Readers' Choice poll - it's still up for about 2 more weeks and while I've already heard from over 500 of you, I'm hoping for even more!

Sorry about your Broncos. My Pats let me down, even before the ill-fated 4th and 2 call. I know Faulk always comes through in that situation, but if they had to make the call, which I didn't agree with, I would have liked the ball in the hands of Wes Welker.

Thanks for the link. Tons of injuries this weekend. Crazy stuff.

As a Vikings fan, I first suspected that Moss and Jesus were one in the same his rookie year. Then when he 'mooned' Packers fans while handing Green Bay a post-season loss after the Vikings were swept in the regular season, I almost became a believer.

Then Adrian Peterson happened.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
