Guest Post: Week 5 prep

We've got one more guest post for you before I return to the land of the fantasy living. Our son, Nicholas Wilson Holladay (adorable dude on the left), thanks you all for being patient. Ryan from brings us another guest post today full of links with Week 5 links - enjoy and if you've seen some new resources here that you like, be sure to let me know as I'm always open to scoping out new links.

Guest post
Greetings fantasy football world. I'm back for another guest spot while Sara is teaching her baby boy the intricacies of the West Coast Offense. 
  • We're a quarter of the way through the season and it's a buyers' market. I'm here to navigate the players you should be targeting like Joe Flacco, whose fantasy playoffs schedule is ultra soft, as well as which ones to avoid.
  • The Fantasy Football Armory won't be making fans with the Librarian recommending selling Brandon Lloyd and Eddie Royal, but with a quartet of capable WRs and the return of Knowshon Moreno, I can see the logic. 
  • FF Toolbox has a list of players to downgrade for Week 5 including Marques Colston. 
  • discusses the Marshawn Lynch traded in this week's risers and fallers article. 
  • FFToday looks at who's Moving Up and Who's Moving Down. Darren McFadden's latest injury has Michael Bush signing The Jeffersons theme. 
  • The Bruno Boys take a look at which players, like Alex Smith, should go straight to the waiver wire without passing go or collecting $200.
  • Ryan Torain is one of this week's teacher's pets in the Rotoprofessor Week 5 Start/Sit article. 
  • KFFL has Sam Bradford and others among their Week 5 Sleepers.
  • If IDP is your thing, check out Hatty's Week 5 IDP Waiver Wire Pickups.

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
