Tourist in my own town

With our departure date from NYC in less than a month, we're trying to spend a little time living it up like a classic NYC tourist. So tomorrow my husband and I are taking a vacation day and visiting the Statue of Liberty (which of course makes me think of this - sorry, Sooner fans). Many moons ago we bought tickets for access to the crown, which apparently has to be requested months in advance. Seems kind of fitting to join in the throngs of hot, chatty, and sometimes surly (oh wait, that's just me) tourists to visit our lady liberty just before the Fourth of July. Should be a good time and honestly, it's one of a very small number of times over the past 9 months that my husband and I have been out together without our little dude...so here's to a little alone time. With the tourists.

Let's head on over to today's football links:
  • Fantasy Douche is offering words of warning about snagging Chris Johnson too early in your draft. Read up on reasons why the Titans running game should probably make you a wee bit nervous - Chris Johnson Suffered from a Poor Tennessee Running Game.
  • Meanwhile if you're looking for suggestions on guys to target rather than avoid, see why LestersLegends.com thinks Romo could be a great value grab after elite QBs are gobbled up.
  • Athlon Sports has their 2011 Early Fantasy Football Ranks up - this link will take you to WRs with other positions available off that link. Their scoring system is clearly delineated at the top and the ranks go pretty deep. Good stuff.
  • I'm gonna be honest here - I haven't even finished this article from CBSSports.com yet since it's so chock full of data and details that I want to slowly digest...but I know many of you will enjoy this as much as I do: Deciphering targets, touches and red zone data.
  • The Fifth Down's early look at the top 10 players at each position continues with RBs - 2011 First Take: Running Backs.
  • Fantasy Fanplay brings us a quick review of a handful of guys who had a down year in 2010 but are poised for 2011 success in Don't Call it a Comeback.
  • Last but certainly not least, one of my favorite fantasy football writers - Chet from Razzball.com - brings us his thoughts on WR sleepers in Solid Late Round Receivers on Fan Duel.com.

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
