Super Bowl week revs up

So you all were glued to the Pro Bowl last night weren't you? I'm interested in seeing how their viewers compared to years past when the Pro Bowl aired post-Super Bowl. Anyone seen those stats? I know ticket sales were up so I imagine this might be a trend we see for awhile.

Meanwhile the Super Bowl week hype is building (and not just in my own head!) - I highly recommend following Rotoworld's Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter since he does a great job of updating during the week with interesting nuggets of player and game news. And speaking of Twitter, I'll be blogging and tweeting all throughout my Super Bowl festivities so if you aren't following me on Twitter yet but want to get some news from all the events I hit up, feel free to follow me - promise I'm not a crazy updater with every thought that runs through my mind!

Let's get to today's links:
Finally, I've been playing around with Pickemfirst a bit more - that cool tool I mentioned last week that helps your news/waiver wire research move along a little more smoothly...and I think I'm in love. I'm using it in my fantasy basketball league (where I can use all the help I can get) and it's so helpful to just run the tool as I'm looking at waiver wire articles and wondering who I can add to my squad. My one qualm is that it uses my google account to log me in but even when I have my gmail open in another tab, I still have to go through the steps of logging into Pickemfirst - would be ideal if it was smart enough to know I was already logged into my google account. But that's small potatoes really.

Probably too late, but if he's available grab Darren Collison. Chris Paul is out 1-2 months.

Thanks for the linkage.

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
