Both playoffs and 2010 advice

Well it has been a weekend of late nights and late mornings here in Brooklyn. With both my brother-in-law and some friends in town, we've been out late enjoying sporting events and good times. But it's not all puppies and lollipops here - I've lost in the playoffs to a friend who likes to needle me about any and all wins he has over me (yup, I'm talking about you, Sam), but I'm still alive and well in two other leagues including the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League. If Quinton Ganther can put up 22 or fewer points, I'm money and will move onto the final round of playoffs. I've got my fingers crossed since that would certainly make up for my world of hurt what with the Broncos losing to the Raiders. I can't believe I typed that sentence. So painful. But hey, at least I'm not Ryan of Fighting Chance Fantasy whose losing parlay bet means he not only has to suffer through watching Dirty Dancing but will also need to sing "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" on Fighting Chance Radio on Tuesday night. Oh good times.

Moving onto today's links:

Good luck tonight. That's funny about the Dirty Dancing bet.

I've got a question for the Librarian, and you all. Through my own numbskulledness, I am 2 pts behind with one player left to go this evening. That player? The redskins K. The problem? He's listed as Q. Now, this isn't a problem, I don't think. Gano will most likely start, but...

I was wondering if there is a website I can go to an hour before kickoff which will tell me if he's playing?

Any help at all is appreciated. I'm just worried that since he's a kicker that no site will give a darn and list him as active or inactive.

Thanks again.
Douglas - does a great job listing all inactives: Even kickers! So check back there for news before tonight's game.

Good luck!

thanks so much! I knew this would be the place to come with advice. And good luck to you 2 other leagues.

(i've never stayed alive this long myself. I think I might need to send Jamaal Charles a fruit basket or something if I win!)

Hey Sara, thanks for the plug! Yeah, just what I want, more people listening to me sing tomorrow night! Stupid Vikings!

Hi Sara!

Advanced to 1 FFL final, lost in semifinal in other FFL league and NY Giants crushed the Redskins. So I guess two out of three ain't bad (per Meat Loaf :-)

However, that semifinal loss to my brother, who will let me know all about it when I see him in a few days. C'est la vie!

Happy Holidays!

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
