Streaming Live Librarian

Happy Friday - and it truly is a happy day now that I've seen Reggie Wayne come back to life. I'll be meeting my opponent in the Buffalo Wild Wings league, Scott Engel, on live "tv" today - Scott joins up with ubatv to do a show called Fantasy Playbook every Friday afternoon. The show films in a studio in Manhattan so today I'll be heading over there to be a guest on Fantasy Playbook, which will also be streaming live if you don't have access to ubatv. Check it out from 2-3 today (or watch in from the archives if you're say gainfully employed and unable to watch a show at work) for discussion on Week 15 matchups. (Post show update: I mistakenly made a bunch of start/sit calls thinking that Pittsburgh is playing Chicago this week - my apologies! This is what happens to me at the end of a long season I suppose...) 

I've got a lot going on today, so I've got a slightly abbreviated post today. I should be back with the consensus start/sit by Saturday afternoon.

Top Fantasy Football's Start-Sit Rankings have a little something extra this week - the holiday adornments on this page are unreal - who knew you could make a start/sit column so festive.

Thanks chewhitey, had not picked up on that. Link is removed, my apologies.

Can you recommend a site where they give start/sit advice or even rankings for DEF/Special Teams?
Not IDP, just the whole Defense.
chewhitey, and all librarian readers was hacked around 11am - I removed the hack around 3pm

The hack tried to install a virus however unless you run some old version of IE should have been fine

I have taken steps to ensure this doesn't happen again.

FFLibrarian, yours is the only FF bookmark in my browser. Thanks for the good work. I have a pressing roster question, and I value your opinion.

I'm in a TD-heavy league (6 pts per TD, 1 pt per 20 yds rush/rec, no PPR). Through shrewd drafting and a blockbuster trade, I've ended up with Johnson, Rice, Benson, Moreno, and Wells as my RBs. I can play 3 of those 5 this week. Johnson is a no-brainer. I'm inclined toward Moreno, especially if Buckhalter's ailments keep him away from the ball. I don't know if I'm willing to gamble on Wells in the playoffs. So, essentially, I'm stuck between Rice and Benson. At the risk of sounding heartless, I wonder if there's any research out there on how teams fare, traditionally, in the wake of a team-wide tragedy. Part of me thinks they'll play with extra heart, but part of me fears that the distraction will be detrimental to performance. If anyone can pull out stats on this, you can!

Thanks for your good work!

You play Johnson, Wells and Rice and don't look back.
John, a good place to start is a site like Fantasy Football Nerd that uses as aggregate approach:

I'd go Johnson, Rice, and Moreno. I understand the Wells love but Moreno will get more carries than Wells with Buckhalter out - I know Hightower didn't have a ton of action last week but he's still around and certainly still a presence. I'd just feel more comfortable with Moreno.

Thanks for the feedback! I originally decided Johnson, Rice, and Moreno (and Campbell over Romo), and since benching Romo didn't blow up on me, I think I'll stick with my gut on the RB's, too.

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
