This Week's 3 TDs go to...Best & McCoy!

Hmm, I could get down with a fantasy football world where every week there's some outstanding young whippersnapper (as my grandpa really and truly used to say) that busts out with 3 TDs. Sadly I seem to have been on the receiving end of the Best and McCoy destruction this week as most of my opponents seemed to somehow have one of the two guys, but since I already know I beat my FF nemesis this week, nothing seems to be fazing me. (Update: thanks to a helpful twitter dude for the heads up that I completely glossed over Snelling and his 3 excuses but I blame it on my status as a Turner owner and needing to block out Snelling's awesomeness!)

For those of you facing your nemeses in Week 3 or who just really like to win all the time (that would be most of us, no?), let's get to today's advice:
  • There are a bunch of waiver wire articles popping up already:
    •'s Week Three Waiver Wire Pickups
    • does a great job with addressing a lot of popular names and letting you know if and where the player is an appropriate pickup in Get 'em or Don't Sweat 'em - Week 2.
    • The Hazean's Early Week 2 Waiver Wire Thoughts
    • Having been a fairly big Jacoby Jones fan come draft day, I'm intrigued with how the Kevin Walter/Jacoby Jones situation might play out this season.'s Fantasy Ticker: Week Three has a little love for Walter this week. 
    •'s Waivering Pickups - it's interesting to see a variety of opinions on GB's James Jones out there. No one seems super psyched about him yet (except me, again, on draft day...apparently J. Jones dudes were up my alley this year!) but Razzball smartly points out that Jones saw 7 targets compared to Jennings and Driver (5 each) and advises keeping an eye on this guy. Couldn't agree more. 
    • Bruno Boys' Week 3 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire - Pick Them Up
    • FFManiaxs' Week Three Waiver Wire - as a Michael Turner owner I'm keeping an eye on the Turner/Snelling situation but be sure to check in on Turner's status (doesn't sound serious) before using a possibly precious waiver wire grab for Snelling. That said, could be great to have Snelling as insurance for the rest of the season.
    • For the IDPers in the room we've got Monk's IDP Week 3 Waiver Wire Pick Ups
  • If you're looking for some recaps of the weekends games, take a look at Yahoo's Roto Arcade's Sunday Scene, Week 2: It's a Bear market; Cutler stars in win.
  • Or MMQB's Three QBs steal spotlight in Week 2 has some interesting tidbits from around the league, a lovefest for Brady's good charity work, and a top 15 ranking of NFL teams (yes, you're seeing both the Chiefs and Bucs there...).
  • Keep an eye on the latest injury news with KFFL's Post-game Injury Report, which is divided up by position. Another spot to scope out on a daily basis is Rotoworld's Headlines section, which I think I mention here non-stop...but for good reason!

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'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 has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
