Autumnal musings + start/sit

It's a cool, damp day here in Tennessee and I for one am psyched to break out the ol' fall wardrobe. Perhaps this doesn't ring true with the mostly male audience here, but this chick loves a day when you can break into clothes that have gone unworn for months and bust out the jeans and sweaters. One thing I'm not going to love about the fall though? Being in charge of raking of my own leaves for the first time in my adult life. Have I mentioned that we're trying to mow our lawn entirely with a trimmer to avoid buying a lawn mower? Yeah, that's how into our lawn we are.

Anyway, lawn maintenance aside, the Week 2 start/sit challenge with is up and running. I'd love it if you all would go to this link and make 10 of the more challenging start/sit choices of the week to show just how smart FFLibrarian readers are. Once again we'll be up against a bunch of other readers/forums (note that has tweaked their scoring system slightly for the remainder of the season), and I'm ready for us to totally dominate this week. Thanks in advance for participating!

Let's get to today's top links:

Thanks for the link to the FantasyPros' challenge last week. I scored a 146--higher than all but two of the tracked experts.

I earned a week of bragging (thanks to your education), but know the fantasy gods may strike me back to reality this week.

Keep up the good work here.

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
