Advice for lucky number 7

Both a good friend from college and my sister are coming over to our place tonight for a little face time with our kiddo, which will be the icing on a pretty solid day. I've got several Week 7 prep links for you tonight - check out the additional waiver wire links as well as rankings and prep tools. Enjoy!
  • Waiver wire suggestions:
    • Talented Mr. Roto's Free Agent Madden-ness! (yes, Matthew Berry and other ESPNers really are in Madden '11)
    • Rotoworld's Waiver Wired: The Danario Scenario (includes a ranking of waiver wire options, which I find particularly helpful)
    •'s Waiver Wire - what do you guys think, while James Starks be the next big thing in Green Bay or is it going to evolve into a classic handcuff situation there between Jackson, Kuhn and Starks? 
    •'s Through the Wire (I should be linking to FFToday more often - great site)
    • I've been using IDP Guru's Waiver Wire Pickup advice for the past few weeks now and have yet to be disappointed; good stuff if you're in need of a new individual defender.
  •'s It's Toraining TDs has a bunch of tidbits from last weekend's games that you'll want to know about while preparing for Week 7. 
  • Awhile ago I linked to some tools that is providing this year and thought I'd send you back to their Interactive Running Back Selector tool, which gives you projected fantasy points (including rushes and receptions) for RBs in a manner that allows for easy comparison between players.
  •'s Week 7: Who to Start Rankings/Projections are up along with their Week 7: Super Sleepers.

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
