The football calm before the baby storm

Well I've got four more days until my due date arrives and this is the first week that I am completely not working at my real job and am on maternity leave...so I'm basically just hanging out, working on the blog, walking around Brooklyn, trying to will this baby out sooner rather than later. Basically what that means is that in theory I might have more time this week to get posts up. This is probably a good time to note that while I would love to answer all of your start/sit or roster questions, I am absolutely swamped by them and can't keep up. I highly recommend heading to some of the following sites to ask questions or join in on chats throughout the week:
  • Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy has a Pay What You Want for Advice feature that you'll find atop all of their articles or right on their homepage.
  • Every week night the Bruno Boys are doing a chat - unreal to offer this every single night so take advantage! Here's a link to last night's chat.
  • There are a few other weekly chats happening like CBSSports.com's chat today at 1:00 eastern (that's right now for those of you who are reading this post as it goes up).
  • Both the Fifth Down and Razzball answer start/sit questions in the comments section of their articles.
Speaking of advice, one other spot you'll want to check out is Razzball.com's recent article that looks at some clutch fantasy football folks to follow on Twitter, and just some advice on Twitter in general. 

Moving on to the rest of today's links:

Good luck with the baby! My wife is due in 2 days and she's also doing whatever she can to get this thing rolling! I just hope she doesn't have it on a Sunday! Hate to miss Fantasy!
All the best.

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
