Moving on to Week 2

Gotta love a Monday night with two games, baby, two games! And of course my beloved Broncos are playing which makes it that much sweeter.

Now yesterday I was looking forward to a full day of pretty much just football. Yeah those of you with kids are already laughing since you know how delusional that is. Last fall our little dude was so little that he basically slept, ate, or was otherwise immobile during games. Not so this year since he's now walking and climbing stairs, not to mention constantly attacking the trash can, fridge, dishwasher, doors, cabinets, basically anything that can be opened or closed. It's non-stop madness in our house so football (mostly the RedZone channel) came with a heavy, heavy dose of baby monitoring. And painting. Yup, babies and painting - great combo, eh? As many of you know, we've been in our new house for about a month now and after weeks of having paint samples up on the walls, we're slowly starting to paint the house. This of course can only be done after our son has gone to bed for the night (see above comments about his total cloud of chaos) so last night we had one eye on the Cowboys v Jets, the other on our dining room walls. One coat down, many more to go...

Anyway, lots going on in our house so obviously I need some game recaps myself. And waiver wire suggestions don't hurt either, eh?

Hate to chuckle, but I love hearing the saga. Kids are definitely a game changer. Awesome first full day of football with a ton of surprises. Colts look like they could be in the running for Luck. Steelers have to wonder what happened. Same with the Falcons. Chiefs may as well pencil themselves in as one of last year's division winners that won't sniff the playoffs.

Thanks for the linkage. Good luck with the rest of the painting.

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
