Win a draft kit!

Victory feels so close, my friends. Let's keep our fingers crossed that all these positive 2011 season rumors aren't all for naught. And as a side note, as soon as the lockout is lifted, my goal is to get back to my normal in-season posting every weekday - as always, if there's a topic you're particularly interested in, shoot me an e-mail and I'll do what I can to include it in these links.

Speaking of e-mailing me, the first person to e-mail me wins access to's 2011 Fantasy Draft Kit (I'll post an update here when the kit is spoken for, which based on last year's enthusiasm for FFX's draft kit will be in about 2.2 seconds Draft kit is spoken for, thanks for all the interest!). I'll be giving away another kit next week and then 2/week when August rolls around. West coasters, I promise to post this offer at a later time next week to make sure you get in on the action.
  • Those of you in the market for a little draft day strategy advice should turn to's The WR-WR Approach.
  • Offensive line rankings, you're the best. So hats off to Fantasy Alarm for getting their o-line breakdowns up and rolling, starting with the Bills who earn a solid D+. 
  • Take a look at Fantasy Douche's A Framework for Flagging Potential WR Busts - a large part of the reason I'm linking to this one is that I enjoy the sparring in the comments section with some other various FF experts. 
  • As a Broncos fan, I can't help but drink up all the Tim Tebow stats I'm given so that I can figure out what exactly to make of this guy. is trying to help us do just that in their Dynasty Slants - Can Tim Tebow Be a Top-10 Fantasy QB?
  • The word sleeper isn't really thrown around in this article from, but that's basically what you can find here in Heirs Apparent - dudes who have potential not seen by the masses. Yet.
  • My husband and I walked past a Blimpie over the weekend and were greeted with a substantial number of Beanie Wells endorsements, which led to a larger discussion of Jared from Subway watching Arian Foster's mechanical bull escapades (Blimpie and Subway occupy the same space in my brain). And while it's entertaining that Foster is bull riding much like my sister on her bachelorette weekend extravaganza, that's neither here nor there. Back to Beanie Wells.'s Making the most out of a crowded backfield is really where I'd like to focus your attention since it includes a nice synopsis of how things look in Arizona and how Wells, Hightower, and Williams could be most effective.
  • Finally, spins a little number magic and looks at 2010 data to see all the red zone scoring that was done last year - and how that might apply to 2011. As FantasyOmatic puts it in Red Zone Scoring SOS, it's basically a look at how easily a team offense will score in the red zone against their 2011 opponents...acknowledging that strength of schedule does take time to develop, this is a nice overview to add to your draft prep arsenal.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
