Keeping an eye out for Tebow

We're headed out of town for a long weekend to visit friends back in Boulder, Colorado - I'll be back in the land of my Broncos! - so I've been running around like crazy this week and have been slacking on the blog front. My apologies for the small number of posts this week. Let's get right to today's links:
  • Yahoo!'s Stock Watch: NFL Draft fallout has a great look at players whose value is on the upswing, downturn, and holding steady. Good read to get your mind focused on the 2010 season, especially if you're just now getting back into fantasy football mode.
  • This time of year, half the fantasy battle is knowing who the starters are going to be. CBSSports.com takes a look at QB stories: Five most intriguing signal-caller situations. Now call me crazy but I actually think Delhomme might be the man in Cleveland for most, if not all, of the year - and I don't think he'll suck. At least not like he did in '09.
  • I love what Brian Burke over at Advanced NFL Stats pulls together and the Fifth Down highlights his latest metric - an attempt to create a stat that measure defensive playmakers - in A Revolution in Defensive Football Statistics?
  • FFToolbox has their dynasty rankings up listed by position - RBs, QBs, WRs, and TEs.
  • All this talk about the various teams that Brian Westbrook is visiting (Redskins now Broncos) may have you wondering about LeSean McCoy. Good thing Dr U Fantasy Football Guru has a brand new player profile up for McCoy.
  • If I was forced to swing by just one fantasy website a day, I think this time of year in particular my go-to site would be Rotoworld. Those guys just never stop. Today's post to Pancake Blocks is a preview from their draft mag's Injury Watch.
  • Want a dose of sleeper picks? Try either FFToolbox's 2010 Fantasy Football Sleepers.
  • FFXtreme wins the award for earliest Week 1 advice...unreal! They already have some start/bench advice up for a few Week 1 games if you're super eager to get the ball rolling on the season.
  • For a look back in time at the 3rd Year Wide Receiver Breakout Rule and some general thoughts on how this might not really be much of a "rule" after all, see what the guys at Pyromaniac.com have to say.

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
