Combine, lockout talks, 2011 rankings, and a cute baby

In order to appease you all for my absence last month (just one post in February! Where on earth was I?), I'm posting a photo of our son who is quickly becoming quite the little man. He's cute, he's happy, and he's a hell of a lot of work. But life is good in the FFLibrarian household and we've got big news churning over here. As many of you know, my husband and I moved to Brooklyn 1.5 years ago after spending seven years in Boulder, Colorado...and now we're moving yet again. My husband is an academic, hence our mildly nomadic life, though I'm thinking this next move might stick for awhile. We won't know where we're going for another 24 hours or so until all job offers have been made and weighed and reweighed, but I can safely say that we will soon be living in the south. Quite the whirlwind to go from the mountain west to NYC to southern living. Glad you all have been along for the ride and it should once again keep my summer a bit nutty as I balance el bebe, moving, and fantasy football. If I thought moving across the country with two cats was a challenge, can't wait to see what it's like with a 10 month old in the mix.

So let's get to today's linkage:
  • Speaking of this summer, fingers crossed that we actually have an NFL season in 2011. I can't even go there, can't comprehend that level of fantasy tragedy. For the latest, tune into ProFootballTalk.com's NFL ownership joins the party too. More news is sure to come shortly. 
  • In the meantime, Indy just hosted the combine so of course there's a bit of combine news to scope out - recaps from Football Outsiders should do the trick if you're in the mood for commentary on players, coaches, and more. Combine Notes: Day One, Day Two and Day Three
  • For some other observations from the combine and a look ahead to draft day (less than 2 months away!), take a look at Razzball.com's Quarterback Primer: Draft Day.
  • 2011 player rankings and projections are alive and well...
  • ProFootballFocus.com should be awarded a gold star for all of their offseason coverage. A couple of other articles you might want to check out from them:

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
