All the waiver advice you'll ever need

You know it's going to be a good day when you're going to the pediatrician not once but twice. I know, I know, I'm sounding like a broken record these days with all my talk about sick babies, but hey it's 10 AM and we've already knocked off one trip to the doc for the day and have one sinus infection diagnosed. Later today we just go back to chat with a nutritionist to talk about ways to help beef up our lean little dude since he's tipping the scales at roughly the 1st percentile for weight. Now since this is all stuff that meant absolutely nothing to me pre-baby, I think it's time to carry on and head straight to today's football linkage.

I just pulled off a couple trades in both of my leagues. Thoughts?

League 1
Gave: Josh Freeman and Jahvid Best
Got: Philip Rivers and Devin Hester

(Very proud of myself for getting Rivers to give me the dynamic duo of starting both Drew Brees and Philip Rivers in my 2 QB slots especially w/o sacrificing too much in my solid RB core of MJD, Arian Foster, and Darren Sproles. Devin Hester was a last minute add on on his part (no clue why when I was just asking for Rivers), but I'll end up dropping Hester for Lance Moore who is surprisingly still a FA).

League 2
Gave: Tim Hightower and Dexter McCluster
Got: DeSean Jackson and Benjarvis Green-Ellis

(I needed a better WR than McCluster when I lost Kenny Britt so I figured I'd sell high on McCluster to buy low on Jackson who I think will turn it around. I can live without Hightower when I still have MJD, Fred Jackson and Blount, but Green-Ellis helps compensate a little).

I feel ya with trying to put weight on your child. My 20 month old is a slender fella. We try to fatten him up a bit, but his metabolism is smokin' fast. Just like his daddy.

Anyway, thanks for the all the good info. You should turn part of this into a paying gig.

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
