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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
