Wild card recap and 2010 info

Wow, I was not expecting some of the outcomes that we saw from this weekend's Wild Card games. The Jets win is basically the only one that didn't surprise me - I have no clue how things could look so ugly in New England, the Cowboys are more impressive than I gave them credit for, and seriously, no more Aaron Rodgers?! It only seemed fitting that Rodgers and the Packers would keep rolling and make it to the Super Bowl since Rodgers is much of the reason that I won my Buffalo Wild Wings league and will be at the SB in a few weeks. Seemed like some Super Bowl kismet to me...

In the next day or two we should have the results from the first week of the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge to see which of the 150 participants is in the lead. I can already promise you all that it is not me! If you already have a team set up with NFL.com for the playoffs, I think you can still join our challenge for your chance to win a $25 gift card to Amazon, courtesy of the generous Bruno Boys.

Let's dive into today's handful of links:
Finally, can't help but mention the college basketball happiness in my home - my Northwestern Wildcats beat Michigan, making them 12-3. Northwestern has never ever been to the tourney so you can imagine I've got my fingers crossed this year. Then my husband, who grew up in Knoxville, TN, was beside himself with Tennessee's win over #1 Kansas (and yes, we even changed the channel away from football for a little while). Wish I could report such success with my fantasy basketball team but I'm sitting at 5-6 right now - could be better, could be worse. Within the next few weeks I should be posting more fantasy basketball links for those who are interested.

Sara,

Re CBS Sports mock fantasy draft for 2010: with Greg Jennings and Sidney Rice falling to the 4th round, why would you take WR in the opening two rounds? Has to be RB RB or RB QB.

Sara,

Did you notice too the "lack" of a facemask penalty on the very last play of the Packers vs Cardinals wildcard game on Sunday?

Yahoo's Shutdown Corner blog has a good article http://bit.ly/7itDSq on it.

The point being that fumble return Touchdown should not of counted, nor ended the game then.

Thanks for the linkage nice lady. We look at the NFL Draft with Dynasty in mind too so some stuff will come out of that as we get closer.

Noah I don't think you will actually see a lot of top WRs fall to the 4th round come draft time, especially with a lot of leagues leaning toward points per reception.

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
