Mock On

Tomorrow afternoon my husband and I are hopping on a plane for a long weekend spent with family. I'll be in eastern Ohio in a rather remote and unfriendly cell phone spot, which might actually be really good for relaxing. But not so good for FFLibrarian blogging. I'll be back on Monday with the usual links. And in the meantime, keep the feedback on your favorite host site for fantasy football coming my way, as well as any suggestions you have for making this blog more helpful for you this year.

Let's scope out today's links:
  • I've got another mock draft for you but before we get to it, take a look at Rapid Draft's look at how/why one can use mock drafting to hone their drafting craft - Mock-draft season has its value.
  • And onto the mock, this one from FFToolbox who does an expert mock each month of the summer. I dig the sentence or two of commentary on each pick. Makes this mock particularly helpful in my book. 
  • If you're thinking mocks and wondering where everyone is falling from an average draft position perspective, you'll find Footballguys.com's chart quite helpful. They pull together ADPs from several awesome sources including their own crew of experts.
  • Lester's Legends has been doing a solid job of providing team-by-team previews and on his alphabetical journey through the league he's made his way to the KC Chiefs. The ranking of fantasy options is a nice feature here. 
  • If you're curious about Malcolm Floyd's value this year then look no further than Razzball's assessment of his 2010 potential in Malcolm Floyd in the Middle
  • Take a look at SI's coverage of the possible addition of two-regular season games in their NFL, union officials meet to discuss 18-game regular season article. 
  • I heart offensive line rankings, so thank you FFToolbox for bringing us your o-line team grades (including separate grades for each team's run blocking and pass blocking abilities) and commentary.
Oh and happy father's day to all the dads out there!

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
