Feeling merry with Week 13 prep

Tonight I'm headed to Rockefeller Center to watch the big tree lighting extravaganza. I can't seem to get enough of the cheesy holiday NYC traditions. I walked past a row of Christmas trees for sale yesterday and had an overwhelming desire to buy one right then and there...until I had an image in my head of how fun it was to lug our A/C unit into our apartment. And by fun I mean horrible. I imagine a tree is an equally awkward and hefty item to cart around the streets of Brooklyn so I might bow out of the tree option this year.

So it's Wednesday, we've got football on tomorrow night and there's still plenty of time to take in all of the waiver, start/sit, and rankings advice out there. Let's get to it...
Just a reminder to get commenting on the Buffalo Wild Wings website if you'd like a chance to win a BWW $50 gift card. Also, I have another giveaway from BWW to share with you all, my fine readers, but I'm struggling with a good contest. Any thoughts?

Re: contest ideas...not sure of your timing. Did you want results prior to end of regular season?

If so - Week 15 has a juicy CIN/SD about predicting results of that game specifically?

If not - predict the wildcard teams or predict week 17 top scoring QB, RB, WR and TE who are NOT regular starters.

I recommend a 4' tall fake tree (Target usually has some decent ones) and a pine-scented candle - almost as good as the real thing once it's decorated and you can reuse it every year (or at least as long as you're in the apartment).

OR how about this - better connected to BWW site (which they might like, after all):

We all predict your final Week 15 lineup for your BWW team. From those who correctly predict who you wind up starting top to bottom, you'll randomly pull the winner.

I know it's not the same, but Dan is onto something. Get a fake tree and a candle. Great advice Dan.

Leave the fakes alone - buy a couple of boughs/sprigs of real greens from the street vendors and add some pine cones. The fresh scents alone will give you a solid tree alternative. And don't forget the mistletoe!

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
