Week 17 linkage

Greetings fantasy footballers. It seems particularly awesome to me that our fantasy football season has just been extended for another day - who doesn't want yet another night when we can watch the NFL, right? I love that it's a fairly solid game, too, that might make a big difference for a bunch of championships. Good luck to you all! Unfortunately for me I already know that I have lost the championship game...to my husband of all people. I will not be living this one down for a long, long time I'm sure. I have Jamaal Charles' multiple touchdowns to thank for my fantasy demise this week.

Before I get to Week 17 links (since I know there are plenty of you rockin it for Week 17), I wanted to remind you all that I do a fantasy playoffs league of sorts every year. All readers are invited to play in the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge group that I usually run through NFL.com's Playoff Challenge - here's a link to the FFLibrarian group and if you have trouble joining the group, just let me know and I'll send you an invitation. Might take me a day or so to get back to you though since we're traveling back home to Brooklyn tomorrow and will be on the road a bit.

One more heads up for those who are new to the blog this year - I blog all year round. Clearly my blogging frequency and quantity of links decreases during the offseason but I do like to keep you all updated on all the offseason happenings in fantasyland. So stick around and swing by this site this winter and spring; your 2011 team will be better for it!

FFL, Would you happen to know of any free articles discussing which teams are still fighting for playoff slots or seeding and tracking their starters? ESPN has something for subscribers only. Also, thanks for all the great work you've done for the 2010 season!

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
