Window shopping for Week 15

I'm not a huge shopper so this declaration probably won't surprise anyone who knows me well: I've only stepped into a store once for Christmas shopping this year. Everything else has been online, baby. Again perhaps not a shocker seeing as I spend all day trolling around the internet for the latest and greatest in fantasy land, so why not do the same for Christmas gifts? But I feel like I'm missing out a bit on the classic New York City Christmas experience. So tomorrow I might brave the crowds and cold to window shop a bit for the heck of it.

Another time you might want to window shop? Cruise on over to your waiver wire and see who is available. Take a good long look, poke around - and if there's anyone that your opponents might pick up this week, why not use your own waiver wire picks to block your opponents from adding any further fantasy talent? That is of course only if you have the room to spare on your squad. So for some more thoughts on this philosophy turn to the Fantasy Football Fools' On the Wire: Playoff Week 15 Pickups to Block From Your Opponents (btw, Fools, I cracked up over the hot or not kittens link). Or turn to today's links for more inspiration:

Thanks John, much appreciated.

Potlicker - meant to post a response to this last night, sorry! I'd go with Favre without a doubt. Washington is just not kind to opposing QBs and Eli isn't good enough to make up for that...meanwhile Favre's matchup against Carolina really doesn't scare me too much. I'm confident he's the better start here.

Forsett, Ganther, or A. Foster for my RB2? C. Jennings is also on waivers. Any help is appreciated!!

Chew, I'm starting Foster this week with Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones.

I'd go with Favre over E. Manning.

I'd also prefer Ganther over Foster. He's safer.

Jason Campbell or Hassleback??

@ chewhitey

I am in the same predicament. I am starting Frank Gore as my RB1, was cruising w/ Ronnie Brown until he got injured. So now I am srounging for a RB2. I have J. Stewart but that's a no thanks. So I am lef with Ganther or Forsett? Both Moat's, Foster and Jennings are sitting in free agents. I am leaning towards Ganther because he will get the most carries, but Forsett plays a terrible Bucs run D. What's would you guys do? First week of the playoffs for me, so I gotta get this right! Librarian, help me out!

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
