Wild card rankings, 2010 thoughts, and more!

Happy Friday! I hope you all enjoyed the National Championship game last night - like many of you I'm sure, I definitely thought Texas had a shot as they started to make things more interesting in the 4th quarter. Though all I could think about for awhile there was how impressive Texas' backup QB was and how I couldn't even imagine my Northwestern Wildcats maintaining so much talent on the bench. Man, playing the game at different levels for sure.

Anyway, back to the NFL. It's been a few days since I've mentioned how psyched I am to be going to the Super Bowl courtesy of Buffalo Wild Wings, so I thought I'd bring it up again lest you all think I've become blase about such a gigantic coup. Trust me, within about an hour or so of waking up every morning, I gleefully think to myself, "I'm going to the Super Bowl!" But time now for today's links...
Enjoy this weekend's games and remember to join in on the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge fun (password: librarian) if you haven't already! Right now there are 114 of us and one of you will be walking away with a nice little $25 gift card to Amazon thanks to the Bruno Boys.

Any ideas on how to obtain access for the Playoff Challenge games on Yes, I have the required username and password combo. I can see my account info. But when I try to log in, it always kicks me out and says my username and password are not valid. I've tried getting help from the tech guys, but they have not responded to my requests. How can they get away with such a terrible user experience on their Playoff Challenge website?
Bigboid - I'm sorry to hear this...hmm. I know my husband had trouble with something like this at first, thought he had a username and pword already set up but didn't seem to think he did. So he created a new one, which sadly is my best advice. Other than bother the crap out of's tech guys until they respond. :) I've got your e-mail address I think so I'll try sending you an invitation in case that somehow makes a difference.

Sara, thanks! I eventually called the 800 number provided in one e-mail regarding usernames and passwords I had from Turns out, my previous account registration was with CBS Sports, which runs the League Manager. Yes, I had to re-register specifically with They could certainly do a much better job at making the distinction obvious. Thanks for your help. I'm now in your league, as The Salarymen.

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'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 has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
