Touring the post-draft NFL scene

My in-laws are coming to visit tomorrow for a few days so I might be a bit quiet as the week wraps up: I'll be busy being a tourist with them. Having family visit is always a great excuse to jump on an uber-touristy bus, boat, or Empire State Building queue for the sake of showing your fam a good time...in reality though, who doesn't love a boat ride around Manhattan on a beautiful day? Plus I have an odd desire to ride one of those double-decker tourist buses. I'm convinced it's going to be really fun...don't tell me if it's not!
  • Ugh...the Broncos need everything to go just right what with the pressure of the Tebow draft pick and the loss of all our major offensive playmakers...and Ryan Clady's knee surgery (courtesy of a basketball game injury) isn't what we need.
  • FFToolbox has adjusted their 2010 Strength of Schedule - love tools like this. While not the final word on any draft choices of course, it's a nice addition to all that other player research you're bound to be doing.
  • Gotta love that NFL.com's Michael Fabiano is already busting out an article with an assessment of players with great potential during the fantasy playoffs in 2010 (weeks 14-16) - Schedules make Manning, Charles more valuable in fantasy playoffs. As a nice touch not only does he go into detail on the top 5 for the playoffs at each position, but he also offers up some thoughts on the bottom feeders. Keep in mind that some defenses can really do an about face during an offseason, but this is still an awesome starting point. 
  • Many recent articles focus on those rookies that you're really going to want to snag come fantasy draft day, what about the dudes that you'll want to avoid? Rotoworld has you covered in Draft Wrap: Rookie Losers. Note: I appreciate the open mind on Tebow. And I promise not to mention him in every single post from here on out...
  • Finally, wondering which undrafted free agents have signed with teams now that the draft has concluded? ProFootballWeekly.com's 2010 undrafted free agents has a listing of the players added to each team.

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
