Wisdom from the experts

The semi-annual Fantasy Sports Trade Association meeting is going on today in San Francisco and while I'm unfortunately not able to be there, I did just retweet a link to the results from the FSTA Experts' Fantasy Football Draft that occurred last night. Take a look on my Twitter page and you might as well start following me since this fall I'll also be tweeting a bonus article every time I get a post up here on FFLibrarian.

Onto the rest of today's reads:
  • FFManiaxs reviews their Top 15 Third-Year Wide Receivers to Watch in 2011. Whether you buy into the third-year breakout phenomenon or not, it's got some good food for thought.
  • For more on WRs, Fantasy Knuckleheads have posted their top 20 receivers in An Early Look at Wide Receivers.
  • FFToday.com has posted their 2011 player projections, which includes individual defenders. All in, I think we're talking about 650+ players here. Amazing. One of the reasons I love FFToday.com, too, is the ease of registering and entering your own league's scoring rules to adjust the projections, rankings, etc. 
  • As the season gets closer, if you find yourself drafting from the 4th overall spot, you might want to keep FantasySharks.com's advice in mind in their Take Your Pick: Fourth Overall article. Take a look and see if they recommend taking Ray Rice, Jamaal Charles, or Andre Johnson. 
  • ProFootballFocus.com summarizes which fullbacks have some fantasy value in the 2011 season in Fantasy: Kuhn & Friends. Find out who is worth a late-round draft pick, who has handcuff potential, and who you might want to pass on this year.
  • FantasyFootballXtreme.com's 2011 Fantasy Football Stock Market Watch (vol 2) takes a look at sleeper candidates and bust candidates based on the most recent ADPs.

Your link to the experts draft on twitter failed.
Hi Anon - I just tried again and the link seems to work just fine. The link that I retweeted opens up a spreadsheet with the results - perhaps I should have made that clear. Here's a direct long, ugly link: https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AshQB-qKioHldFRrbF85MXo2VjZFV3BRaDRHd1NVLUE&authkey=CNSH3fcL#gid=0

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
