Winner of the 2009 FFLibrarian League is...

There are big, fluffy flakes coming down outside my window right now and I'm thinking about the mayhem that will be taking place just a few miles away at Times Square tonight. We thought about joining in on the New Year's Eve madness but I think we're just going to have a few friends over for dinner and drinks instead. I woke up this morning with a monster of a sore throat so I'm wondering just how much celebrating I have in me today...we shall see.

But speaking of monster things, let's talk about the 96-team monster FFLibrarian League which had its inaugural season this year. Yes, really 96 teams - we were split into 6 conferences of 16 teams and each conference had their own draft. This past week we had our final championship week that pitted the 6 conference winners against each other, which included the following teams:
Conference 1: Bookie
Conference 2: American Atheists
Conference 3: HitNRun
Conference 4: I'm Rick James Bitch
Conference 5: BIG DUKE
Conference 6: Dangerous Beans

So without further ado, the team with the most points in Week 16 and 2009 FFLibrarian League Champion is...American Atheists with a starting squad made up of Philip Rivers, Jamaal Charles, Jerome Harrison, Miles Austin, Brandon Marshall, Dallas Clark, Rob Bironas, and the Cowboys D/ST. A big congrats to Andrew on his win!

Thank you all to all 96 teams for participating and if you want to keep the fantasy fun going during the playoffs, join me in the 3rd annual FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge hosted by NFL.com. The game is a little different this year but essentially you pick the players that you think will perform best each week and if you carry any players over from week to week, you get bonus points for that player's stats. Should be a good time and I'm hoping to have 200+ of you participate again this year. So join in the league using the password (librarian) - if you have any troubles signing up with that link, just email me and I'll send you an invitation. Feel free to invite your friends, too - the more the merrier!

Moving on to today's links:
Have a safe, fun and happy New Year's Eve! And here's hoping you're all pulling for my Northwestern Wildcats in the Outback Bowl tomorrow - go Cats!

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
