Standard fantasy fare + college fantasy rankings

Congrats to the good people of Boston on the Bruins' win last night. My sister is a Boston transplant and she has been there for about a year now, and I'm wondering if the game - or hockey season in general - was even on her radar. Granted, she's 8 months pregnant and probably not thinking about much else, but I'm definitely not seeing the standard New England enthusiasm from my northerner friends that I normally see for the Pats, Red Sox and even Celtics. Though considering I personally have barely seen a hockey game in full, perhaps this is more of a reflection of my own preferences and choice of friends...nonetheless, here's to you, Bruins fans!

Moving on to football, the king of all sports...
  • FFToday.com released an analysis on their latest mock draft - you can also check out the results of the entire mock here.
  • There are a few fairly new sites out there that do a pretty solid job at scouring the web to bring you all sorts of fantasy goodness. On days that I don't post, or when you're looking for an extra fantasy football pick-me-up, head on over to either Fantasy Intersection or Fantasy News Network.
  • Rotoworld is continuing their series of positional rankings for 2011, this time with Jermichael Finley leading the pack in Preliminary 2011 Re-Draft Ranks: TEs.
  • Keep an eye on NFL.com's fantasy blog - some of the latest posts include reasons why you might want to keep an eye on guys like Ahmad Bradshaw, Matt Stafford, and Steven Jackson among others.
  • Scope out KFFL.com's sleeper series - this link will take you to RBs, and includes player ADP. Keep in mind that once KFFL names someone as a sleeper, their ADP is likely to jump a bit with what I'll call sleeper inflation.
  • Finally, if the lockout has you thinking about college fantasy football, you might want to see what Athlon Sports is putting together - check out their Preseason CFB Fantasy RB Rankings.

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
