Jump on it! Waiver Wire for Week 2

Happy first Monday Night Football Day! I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's games - would've been a little bit better if the Broncos had pulled out a win over the Jags, but I'm willing to assume that good things come to those who wait...and maybe wait and wait and wait....

But with the conclusion of Week 1 games comes the onslaught of waiver wire suggestions. So I've got plenty of great links up with suggestions of guys to grab this week. In the words of Sir Mix-A-Lot, it's time to jump on it, my friends!
  • Waiver Wire link:
    • Bruno Boys' Week 2 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire - Pick Them Up has 14 guys (and hence 14 pages/clicks, which I must say BB crew is not ideal; would love to only have to click through once or twice) that you might want to target if you're already in need of lineup replacements.
    • ProFootballWeekly.com's Fantasy Ticker: Week Two lists some "hot purchases" for the week. 
    • Lester's Legends has a bunch of dudes listed in Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em - Week 1; note that each player has a recommendation on whether or not they're worth picking up, so read carefully since not every name mentioned is a name endorsed. 
    • FootballDocs' Fantasy Football Waiver Wire includes some guys who might be long gone in your league (Arian Foster, Matt Forte) but also the darling of waivers this week (Peyton Hillis, former Bronco) among other names that are more likely to be available in your league.
    • The Hazean's Early Week 1 Waiver Wire Thoughts lists Brandon Jackson, one of my favorites to target this week as we figure out the deal with Ryan Grant. 
    • Razzball.com's Waivering Pickups - how much of a lovefest is headed Eddie Royal's way??
  • Now if you missed any of the games or had other obligations that kept you from this week's games (oh I feel for you if so...), then read up on the games with one of these two great reads:
  • Finally, more material from Lester's Legends, who already has rankings cranking for Week 2 lineup decisions - check out the QB Rankings - Week 2. Rest of the positions still to come.

Thanks for the links.

Speaking of waiting, when is the little one due?

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
