Anonymous,

I'd definitely go with Mike Williams of Tampa Bay.

I've got a WR quandry of my own. Start 2 WRs (non-PPR): R. Wayne (@ TAM), M. Manningham (@ ARI), P. Harvin (@ KAN), S. Rice (v ATL)?

Sara has Harvin and Rice on her consensus start list (a feature that I love, BTW). Wayne and Manningham have been inconsistent and injured, respectively, but have higher upsides.

Decisions, decisions...

Thanks, I'm still leaning toward Torrey Smith. Williams hasn't been great thus far, and with Boldin on Revis Island, I could see Smith get some big targets... but obviously, I'm still questioning the move.

I like Rice and Manningham personally. I'm not convinced of the QB situation in Minnesota.

If it were me, I'd go with Harvin and Manningham. Chiefs and Cardinals secondaries stink. Answering the other question, I say Williams. Rex Ryan has said he's game planning for Smith.

Here is a question for my flex spot in a standard scoring, non PPR league:

Shonne Greene, Ben Tate, Robert Meachem, or Stevan Ridley?

Thanks for the advice Anonymous and Perplexed. I think I'm gonna go the lousy secondary route and play Manningham and Harvin.

As for Perplexed's flex decision, I'd go with Meachem, who has a TD in every game so far.

I usually prefer RBs in the flex slot, if possible. But Sara listed Greene as a consensus sit, Foster was named the starter ahead of Tate, and is Ridley really trustworthy after just six good carries in one game?

Happy Football Sunday!

Hightower is killing me! Please don't tell me Ryan Torain is coming in to spoil my season. I should never draft a RB that plays for Shanahan. Rookie mistake.

I, like all the experts, sat Gore. Fox's early reports was that he was inactive...apparently no one told Gore he wasn't supposed to do well!!!

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
