Bring on the waiver wire links

Yesterday was quite the active day in maternity wards in northern Virginia yesterday - not just one, but two of my friends had babies yesterday. Welcome to the world, little ones! Two more future fantasy football fans perhaps?

Meanwhile, those of you who are interested in joining me at the Brooklyn Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the Thursday Night Football game with Gregg Rosenthal, Scott Engel, and other FFLibrarian readers, please send me an e-mail to let me know you'll be coming (fyi, it's off the B,Q,2,3,4, and 5 trains)!


Onto today's links:

Hey Librarian, hope you are doing well and loving N.Y.
Quick start/sit question for this upcoming week.
I have one flex spot for either LT(@DALLAS) or Meachem(@ Atlanta). What do you think?
Brooklyn with love.

Hi FFL. Unfortunately, I missed the playoffs this year. But while I take all the blame for my bonehead roster choices, I give you all the credit for giving me so many sources of information to make informed decisions. Thanks, and good luck in all your playoffs!

That's a tough start/sit. I'd go with LT, but I'm if you're putting one of those guys in your flex you're probably in pretty good shape either way in this league.

I've got a pretty tough matchup this week.

Start 3: Roddy White, Sidney Rice (how formidable is CIN's D?), Mike Sims-Walker (been quiet lately), Miles Austin

Start 2 (IDP): Darren Sharper, Bryan Scott, Tanard Jackson, Bernard Pollard

Thanks!

Brooklyn here,
Well here's my lineup
QB- Peyton
RB- Pierre Thomas (or LT)
Wr- Smith (NYG), Mike sims walker, Meachem or kevin britt or lee evens
TE- V davis (3rd week waiver pickup!!)

So I figure Im starting smith and MSW, and I feel like I gotta play Thomas over LT, only because of the matchups, (LT@DAL Thomas@Atlanta)
So that leaves me LT or Meachem in the Flex

This may look like a solid team but I play in a 12 team ppr league with my friends and we all really know football so with this team I'm still only the 6th seed, at least I made the playoffs!!

Anon @ 9:58, I'd go MSW, Rice, and Austin. N.O. D looks much better than Dallas D right now. I played smith(NYG) last week against Dalls secondary and he got 6-110.

I don't think you can bench Roddy White right now. Even with Chris Redman under center, he was targeted an astounding 20 times. I think MSW is the sit, but you could make a good argument for benching Sid Rice this week.

In a PPR I go with Meachem. No one can cover him right now and Brees should carve up Atlanta's defense. The only worry is if Lance Moore returns but that looks unlikely.

Great job this week, FFL

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
