Win a $50 gift card to BWW!

I'm alive and well, having survived yesterday's interview. As with all things in academia, particularly around the holidays, it will be awhile before I learn more about the job. But I just want to say a quick thanks to all who e-mailed or left a comment, wishing me luck yesterday. I'm truly one lucky blogger to have such a great readers.

Since I'm just lounging around this morning, avoiding anything that could possibly be considered mentally tasking, I caught this fun little library news tidbit: remember kids, it's never too late to make good on those overdue library books. Probably better not to wait 51 years, but hey, better late than never.

Finally, who wants to win a $50 gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings? Here's the deal - the BWW All-Star Blogger League is running a weekly contest from now until the end of the FF season where the league blogger who has the most comments on their posts for the week on the BWW All-Start Blogger League site, will win a $50 gift card. I will then pick at random from the names that posted a comment on my posts that week (Mon-Sun) and get that $50 BWW gift card sent to the winner. So in order to win just follow my links to my posts on the BWW site, post a comment with a unique name/moniker, and check back here on FFLibrarian each Monday to see if your name is listed as the winner. If it is, after sending me your contact info, a $50 gift card will be on its way (note: just to clarify, there's only a winner if my posts on BWW have the most comments for the week, so get commenting!)! Pretty easy, right? Now I need your advice on which D/ST to start this week, so head on over to my post for today and start commenting!

wellll i've never left a comment on this site but read all your posts so i figured i'd come to you for some advice. i love me some sleepers so i actually have mccoy, beanie, forsett, and picked up bernard scott after benson left the game on sunday. obviously scott will not have much value save this upcoming week, so which of the other three do you feel i should explore trade possibilities for?
Brian said…
Port, Beanie has too good a schedule to get rid of so with that the only person I think that anyone will be willing to trade for is McCoy.

Open Trade Question said…
I'm gonna ask for some trade advice...Anyone, feel free to chime in.

Should I go after Kurt Warner and his favorable schedule?
I currently have Phil Rivers...both are statistically similar and Rivers' schedule isn't that bad going forward either...Am I micromanaging too much?
Garo Speirs said…
OTQ - I think you should hold on to Rivers, he is solid - Warner is great, too, but I'd always worry about turnovers with him, or even injuries, even though he's been healthy for a while. the one hesitation is week 15 vs Cincy, potential semis, they've been tough.

There should be more to discuss if you was to bet on the changes of the winners.

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
