First unveiling of Super Bowl weekend photos...

Wow it has been a whirlwind week going from the amazing trip to the Super Bowl (thanks again Buffalo Wild Wings) to a new job - feels like I've hardly had time to breathe so my apologies for my slow blogging this week.

First up, I'm scattering some Super Bowl weekend pictures throughout my posts for the week to keep you entertained. We took over 200 photos so as you can imagine, I'm trying to just show you all a smattering of the best and most representative of the trip.

Up first, Archie Manning getting ready to do an interview on Radio Row at the media center, followed by The Who being interviewed before their acoustic set for the media on Thursday afternoon.

Interspersed between SB44 weekend photos though there will be links. The 2010 season is now squarely in front of us and while it's a long, long, sad way off until Week 1, there are actually plenty of sites still cranking out offseason analysis.

So let's get right to the first link of the night:


Let's start things off with Football Outsiders since they're always a great launching point for football analysis. Their Super Bowl XLIV Quick Reads provides some solid game insight and some in-depth number crunching for top players in SB44.

That next photo there is of Mark Schlereth, me, and Trey Wingo as Wingo hands me the awesome Super Bowl tickets. And I'm only 5'3" or so, which seems painfully obvious in this photo...
 
Next up, FantasyFootball Xtreme takes a nice look at some sleeper running back picks that you might want to grab for next season - 2010 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Running Backs.
 
I can practically hear Greg Olsen dynasty owners crying their eyes out over the arrival of Mike Martz in Chicago - look at what happened to Vernon Davis when Martz was in town...take a look at Rotoworld's Martz confirms it: Olsen is screwed.

Here's a photo of me at Buffalo Wild Wings doing a video segment for their internal WingTV station. I only had to do about 10-20 seconds of video but it was still pretty exciting to be in the bright lights.

NFL.com has their 2010 rankings by position but they also include current auction values.

Side note: I met CBSSports.com's Dave Richard at the media center in Ft. Lauderdale and was impressed with what a genuinely nice guy he seemed to be in such a brief meeting - I always like hearing those details on what folks are really like so thought I'd spread them on to FFLibrarian readers, too.

And on we roll with photos...

Next I have a series of photos with both famous football faces and general celebs at the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl at South Beach on Saturday afternoon  - those of you who are into Gossip Girl and/or Twilight (I know, not too many of you, right?) might recognize a face or two here amidst the Eli Manning, Eddie George and Mark Sanchez shots.


Finally, I have two parting photos for you today - a shot of the stadium from our pre-game party at PrimeSport's NFL Alumni party. Then a photo of my husband and me outside the stadium getting psyched to go in for the big game. I'll be back later this week with photos from the game itself.

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
