Rolling Itsy Bitsy style

I have an amazing track record with The Itsy Bitsy Spider. I don't know what it is about that tune, but I'd say about 85% of the time it silences our unhappy toddler and lulls him into a far more agreeable state. Yes, it must be sung repeatedly until your mouth might just fail you and no words escape - or perhaps you start trying it in different accents, volumes, and voices until any other adult with you decides the Itsy Bitsy Spider must cease immediately for sanity reasons. But seriously, the thing is a miracle worker. Car freak out? Try the Itsy Bitsy. Hand motions not even needed. Major flopping and rolling during a crucial diaper change moment? Less effective then, but the Itsy Bitsy still often pulls through. Major hats off to the Itsy Bitsy creator.

If you're looking for a QB to help pull you through Week 11 in Itsy Bitsy style...well, could be a tough week for that. But I've got a bevy of links here to help you make some lineup decisions. Remember there's a Thursday Night game tomorrow (go Broncos).
Finally, thanks to the 300+ of you who participated in last week's FantasyPros.com accuracy challenge. We moved on up to 4th place but it's a very precarious spot, not gonna lie. I'll get a link up tomorrow for your start/sit votes for Week 11 and I could certainly use all your brainy fantasy football help!

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  DavidGonos.com'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 CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
