All about the Olympics

Ahh, it's a long weekend here for us and it was sorely needed - post-Super Bowl I came down with a cold and of course had copious amounts of laundry to be done. Nothing like a long weekend to help on both fronts. Plus I've found myself basically addicted to the Winter Olympics, thanks in large part to my participation in RosterSlots.com's fantasy Olympics games. I recommend scoping the site out if you're looking for a fantasy fix - or say if you need a reason to watch the pairs figure skating for more than just the bizarro costumes. Seriously, is this actually an Olympic event for weirdest outfits?

Let's get to a few fantasy football links to start this week off right:
  • Several of my fantasy football buddies across this great land are participating in Razzball's 2010 Mock Draft. Matt Schauf from RapidDraft keeps things interesting by picking MJD with the #1 overall draft. See what else has evolved over the first 4 rounds of the draft so far.
  • Another mock draft, but this time not so fantasy - FantasyFootball.com's 2010 NFL Mock Draft looks at picks that might be made come this April. 
  • Take a look at Rotoworld's Blame it on the quarterback for 5 wide receivers that you might want to put higher on your list next season - if their QB situation improves.
  • Read up on this week's MMQB to let Peter King know if you want to hear more about the 2011 negotiations between owners and players...and for a nasty knee photo. If that doesn't get you to click on the link, don't know what will.
  • I haven't been hiding my distaste for Jay Cutler as a fantasy QB so of course I was drawn to Picking Jay Cutler apart, an article based on film breakdown from Jaws.
  • Bruno Boys have put up their Top 25 fantasy players in 2010 - lots of QBs in the first round. I love me some Aaron Rodgers (I will always have a special place in my fantasy heart for Rodgers after his role in getting me to SB44) but I'm not willing to take him 5th overall...does that mean Rodgers won't land on any of my squads this year?
  • Another Packer that I'm big on for next year - Jermichael Finley. See what FFManiaxs think in Fantasy Status for 2010: Stud or Bust?
  • Finally, free agency is just around the corner - ProFootballWeekly.com's Wilfork among UFAs who could be 'franchised' takes a look at players who might get the franchise tag.

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
