Annual accuracy results are coming!

Well I think as soon as the offseason got here I just completely collapsed and stopped posting as frequently here - my apologies! As I'm sure I've made abundantly clear, I've got this adorable and increasingly fascinating, nearly 4 month old little dude on my hands and as much as I wanted to keep up my blogging routines, I think it's time I admit that I'll probably only be posting once or twice a week for a little while here.

The good news though? I finished my calculations for the annual FFLibrarian/FSTA FF Expert Rankings Accuracy Contest and I'm so psyched to share yet another year of results. There were 50 sites involved this year and the winner will be revealed at the FSTA conference next week (sadly, I won't be there) and the results will go up on the NY Times' Fifth Down shortly thereafter. I'll be sure to link over to the results from here of course. I'll have info on both the best overall performers as well as the top sites at each position...for a look back on previous years, start with this post on the 2009 results.

The current leader in the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge is shamwow; nicely done!

Now let's get to the rankings and advice for this weekend's games:
How about info about 2011?
  • Some thoughts on the changing IDP landscape as we roll into the 2011 season from the IDP Guru - 2011 Notable IDP Free Agents: Defensive Backs and Defensive Linemen.
  • FFToolbox.com's 2011 Keeper Sleepers
  • CBSSports.com's What to make of the Pats in fantasy in 2011? Really it's a broader look than just the Pats, it focuses on three players on the rise and three on the decline. I had a lot of hope for James Jones in 2010 so I'll be keeping a close eye on him to see if he's really worth another year of enthusiastic late-round drafting.

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
