Shaun White > LenDale White

There are no links to offer up that compare with the awesomeness of Shaun White's halfpipe performance last night. Yeah that's right, I'm a proud member of the Shaun White fan club, I mean how could you not be?? The dude is tremendous; that's all there is to it. I even dig his hair, that's how far I've bought into the Shaun White lovefest.

And of course his performance helped me put up some stellar numbers in RosterSlots.com's fantasy olympics game yesterday, which any of you can jump into at any point during the Olympics. I say see if you can put together better fantasy teams than I can, because frankly, I'm on fire.

A little research is all it takes to be ahead of the game with both the Olympics and football, so let's roll on over to today's links:
  • Get your mind wrapped around the free agency landscape with CBSSports.com's Top 32 FAs: Cap-free year needs restricted infusion. Oh Denver, please do hold on to Elvis Dumervil...
  • Football Outsiders are always a great spot to stop for some quality offseason thoughts and this week is no exception. I'm enjoying their thoughts and reader comments in Most Overrated Fantasy Player Into 2010?
  • For one man's take on his picks in Razzball's recent mock 2010 fantasy draft, read what RapidDraft's Matt Schauf has to say about guys like Brandon Jacobs, LenDale White, and Robert Meachem among others in Way-too-early mock conclusions.
  • Speaking of Brandon Jacobs, the FFManiaxs have basically written him off, which I think might be a bit premature - but see what they think of the rest of the Giants backfield here.
  • Meanwhile guess who has parted ways with the Browns?

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
