Want to play in the FFLibrarian monster league?

I'll be posting again later tonight or tomorrow morning with your normal fantasy football links, but wanted to be sure to extend a league invitation to you all for the 2010 FFLibrarian Monster League. As many of you know, last year I started the FFLibrarian monster league hosted by and had 96 readers participate in one huge league (divided into 6 conferences of 16 teams) - last year's winner was Andrew, manager of the American Atheists squad. has generously offered to host us again but this year the size of the league is going to be limited to 72 teams to make things a bit more reasonable and fun for participants; we'll still have 6 conferences, but each conference will only have 12 teams. I've sent an e-mail out to all of last year's participants to make sure they had an opportunity to reply and play again this year, and I still have about 15 spots left in the league. If you would like to play in the league this year, please send me an e-mail ASAP and I'll get you added in - or added to the wait list if there's enough interest, which I suspect there will be based on last year's interest. Live drafts will occur between August 28 and September 6, though there will be one conference that will draft via a slower e-mail-style draft to accommodate scheduling needs. When you e-mail me with your interest, please include your team name and your draft style preference. This year I'm working on developing a prize for the league winner so stay tuned on that front. Update: I've already started to put people on the wait list so if you haven't e-mailed about joining the league yet, you're welcome to do so as long as you're okay with hanging out on the wait list for now.

Looking forward to another awesome season of the FFLibrarian Monster league - and again, thanks to for putting up with our quirky, huge league!

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
