First FA/waiver suggestions of 2011

I realized recently that I haven't done nearly enough promotion of my annual accuracy contest that I run in conjunction with the FSTA and a site called The Most Credible. As you all probably know by now, for several years I've been comparing experts' preseason positional rankings with end-of-the-season rankings, and I crown one site the most accurate for the season. The reigning champ are the Bruno Boys for preseason rankings and Draft Sharks for preseason projections. This contest is open to all in the fantasy football industry who publish positional rankings - all sites have to do is just submit their rankings to me as outlined in the contest link above, so encourage your favorite sites to participate!

To the linkage:
  • Speaking of rankings, take a look at the FF Geek Blog's 2011 Preseason fantasy football rankings, which are divided up by position.
  • There's been much hoopla over the Arian Foster situation - catch up here with Roto Arcade's review of it all - and while it seems to have basically quieted down, I do think that every Foster owner out there can cover their back with a little Ben Tate, who seems most likely to fill in if Foster misses any major amount of time.
  • In other big news, rest easy Chris Johnson owners: the deal is done
  • I just snagged Matthew Stafford in a dynasty league draft last night. How he was unrostered, I have no clue. But I'm feeling pretty good about that move...Stafford has been shining in the preseason. For more on Stafford and others from the Preseason 3 games, see the Fifth Down's Preseason Week 3 Recap.
  • Other QBs that are making waves are discussed in Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football Quarterbacks: Rising Stars
  • Already done drafting for the season? FantasySharks.com's The Feeding Frenzy looks at guys who might have gone undrafted in your league but that are worthy of consideration if you're feeling some draft remorse.
  • FantasyPros.com continues with more great analysis from the FF experts out there - this time 5 experts take a look at which top RB, WR, and QB Will Underperform in 2011.
Enjoy tonight's games...and happy September! The season is almost here, my friends - one more week to go!

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
