Receiver round-up

Promises of the 2011 season are becoming increasingly frequent and hopeful (or is that just desperation?) and I hope that between news of the lockout talks, anticipation of the Women's World Cup final, and the British Open, you'll be able to squeeze in some time to read the latest fantasy football links. We've got lots of articles focusing on receivers today:
  • First up on the receiver front, GoAheadScore.com has a FF PPR Gems 2011 article listing about 15 guys, some are no-brainers, others are buried a bit deeper, including a handful of rookies to watch. 
  • Two of my top sites take a look at potential breakout WRs:
    • Matt Waldman's Gut Check series for Footballguys.com is extensive and chock full of interesting tidbits - as always - so you'll definitely want to scope it out when you've got several minutes to invest in a top-notch article - Profiling WR Breakout Candidates.
    • KFFL.com also supplies a lengthy list of receiver names that you'll want to pay attention to during your draft prep - Third- and fourth-year wide receivers.   
  • CBSSports.com now has their third mock draft of the season up - I appreciate that they offer a different format for each of their mocks, varying the number of teams and positions drafted. This time they've got a 14 team PPR mock with team-by-team analysis of best/worst picks plus a draft grade.
  • And if you're a CBSophile and just can't get enough of them, take a look at their completed 2011 team-by-team fantasy outlook for each team in the NFL. This includes sleepers, busts, a schedule breakdown, plus training camp topics. Good stuff.
  • FantasyGuru.com's John Hansen is a fantasy expert that you'll want to have on your radar if you don't already. Keep an eye on his blog this season, and perhaps start with his Top-25 stories to follow once the lockout is lifted.
  • Moving on to QBs, check out these two 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
