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

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
