Divisional shenanigans

Well my hometown of D.C. certainly has been busy over the past few days: first they snag Willie Parker to join Larry Johnson and Clinton Portis in the backfield, and tonight Philly trades away McNabb to the Skins for the 37th pick in 2010 and either a 3rd or 4th rounder in 2011. I think this trade might have been concocted entirely by twitter in an effort to get an insane amount of updates going here. Now if only the Redskins could actually put together a decent o-line this year...

Let's get right to tonight's links:
  • The Hazean takes a quick look at the fantasy implications in Donovan McNabb Traded to the Redskins.
  • I heart offensive line talk - it just seems like there's never enough. So I've been a fan of Football Outsiders' Offensive Line Continuity Scores - draw your own conclusions but if nothing else, it's one of those interesting little nuggets to feed a football-starved mind in the offseason.
  • Meanwhile if your mind is more on the NFL draft, take a look at FFToolbox.com's Ben's Brain: NFL Draft Buzz - Rising and Falling for thoughts on which rookies are making moves up or down the draft list.
  • FFXtreme has expanded their 2010 projections to include all offensive positions - QBs, WRs, TEs (and RBs if you missed that link a week or so ago).
  • Working Man Sports has some fleshed-out QB rankings for 2010 - see why Tom Brady falls into Tier 2...behind Matt Schaub.
  • I'm digging the Bruno Boys' Three Burning Questions by team series - scope out the NFC West and NFC North so far.  
Finally, happy opening day for you baseball fans. And those of you that want to throw your hat in the ring for the Second Annual Fantasy Baseball Accuracy contest, it's likely not too late if you can demonstrate to us that your projections were live before tonight's game started - check out the details if you're an interested expert.

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
