Mixing in some basketball

My brother-in-law is coming to visit this weekend - should be fun, we always have a good time when he's around. He's in town to hit up the Duke vs Gonzaga game at Madison Square Garden on Saturday - he went to law school at Duke and is quite the Duke fan. I'm psyched for the game and to see his fandom in action live and in person. Here's hoping that upcoming snowstorm doesn't trap him here, though it looks like my native Virginia might get the brunt of the storm with much of the northeast missing out on a pre-Christmas blanketing of snow.  

Meanwhile today I am huddled over a cup of coffee trying to stay warm and caffeinated - prepping for my shopping excursion this afternoon. And tonight we'll be looking for a sports bar in which to watch the Colts vs Jags game. All in all, a nice day ahead. So let's get to today's links without further ado:
Finally, we won the $50 gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings for all your comments last week! Thanks to all who commented. With a random drawing, the gift card went to commenter Tim...let's see if we can get another one this week. The blogger with the most comments on the BWW All-Star Blogger League site wins that $50 gift card and I will then pick a name at random from the commenters. So get commenting on my post today on the BWW site!

Chris Henry's passing was very sad. He seemed to be turning his life around.

I enjoy your site. But I do find the lists for waiver wire pickups and start/sits to be a bit repetitive. They essentially all say the same thing. I think what's really needed is some analysis of the weeks ahead, especially during playoff time. For example I just picked up the SF defense. I'm certainly not playing them this week, but look at their schedule for the next two weeks. Super Bowl gold.

sat reggie wayne... :( after 3 consecutive weeks of single digit scoring and rumors of sitting injured players (was listed as probable) he puts up 26 points! hope cribs can match that. (DOUBT IT!)

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
