More giveaways!

Okay I've got more treats to give away to you all, my fine readers.

First up: 2 subscriptions to FFXtreme's season-long membership to the first 2 people to e-mail me. Again, these have been very, very popular so I'm assuming that you need to respond within the first 5-10 minutes or so, so please check the blog to see if I've updated it to say the giveaway is closed. Update: And I've now given away the FFXtreme memberships - thanks everyone!

Even bigger giveaway: A Buffalo Wild Wings Lawn Chair, which was bestowed upon me for partaking again in their BWW Fantasy Football League (which I'll just remind everyone I won last year and got an amazing, unreal trip to the Super Bowl!). It folds up pretty compactly for tailgating purposes - only catch is that you would have to be comfortable with giving me your mailing address (promise I'm not a crazy librarian who will show up on your doorstep, just need a place to send the lawn chair!). If you'd like to win the lawn chair, you will need to have the closest guess for the total number of rushing yards for Adrian Peterson and Pierre Thomas in tomorrow night's MIN @ NO season opener, and if there's more than one correct guess, I'll draw a name from those correct guesses. So e-mail me your guess before the game starts tomorrow night!

I'll be back later today with the usual daily dose of links.

maybe you could change the contest to something other than "first two". For those unable to get to the computer in time.

or maybe FFExtreme can nut up and offer 100 memberships instead of 10, then 4, then 2.

When the first offering came up (which I missed), I went and reviewed their content and immediately found a flaw in their projections. Had Favre throing 2 TDs, but in the RB/WR/TE breakdown, only one TD was caught).

My opinion is FFExtreme is becoming FFExtremelyAnnoying

They should realize they are in FFExtremeCompetition with other FF sites whose content is both more accurate and proofchecked then theirs, and offering miniscule batches of online memberships to this is not as compelling as they might think. Especially in batches of not-worth-considering counts.

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
