Under my umbrella

I hate to talk about the weather again but I can't help it! Never in my life have I seen such a city dedicated to using umbrellas in the snow. In fact, I swear that prior to moving to New York City it was something I'd only seen little old ladies do...but here it's an epidemic. So on today's wet, slushy walk from the subway to work, I busted out my umbrella. Gotta be honest, got to work a little bit drier and warmer. I might be a slight convert.

But have no fear, I won't drone on about the rest of my weather experiences and all of the accoutrements I'm finding helpful here. We'll hop on over to today's links:
  • Combine talk is really heating up - Football Outsiders/Washington Post football guru Doug Farrar will be posting his thoughts from the weekend on twitter so if you're in for some combine twitter action, give him a follow.
  • Meanwhile don't forget that free agency is just around the corner. Swing by FantasySharks.com's 2010 Free Agent Watch - QBs for some names you'll want to keep an eye on over the next few weeks.
  • If you're in a deep league or if you're just really jonesing for a deep sleeper, I highly recommend you read this forum on the DynastyGuys: Guys currently flying under the radar for 2010. Spent some good time on there thinking about those lesser-known dudes.
  • If you're a Pats fan like my sister - or just a Welker admirer like I am - you'll be pleased to hear Welker is "doing very well" after his knee surgery.
  • Finally, I've been missing my football content from Lester's Legends, a site I can always count on for quality content. So I'm glad to see some football being peppered in among the baseball content, particularly this article on Felix Jones vs. LeSean McCoy.

Have to say, I've never saw umbrellas for snow either. Not at Syracuse and certainly not in Minnesota.

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
