Fantasy link roundup

Earlier this week I celebrated my 33rd birthday and in a few days I'll be celebrating my 6th wedding anniversary. It occurred to me that I've been married for about as long as I've been doing this blog (which I started in September 2006). Coincidence? Possibly, though I do have my husband to thank for getting me into the fantasy football world in the first place. So perhaps we'll be cheers-ing both ourselves and FFLibrarian this weekend. With candy and iron of course, the traditional 6th year anniversary gifts.
  • For starters, Yahoo's First Down: Shoddy Roddy, Martin mystique, and Lions unleashed...sort of is a nice recap of some recent news items.
  • This time of year you can access a lot of quality material on for is absolutely worth your time to peruse FBG while you can. Take a look at their Redraft Quarterback Rankings for starters - you can manipulate the rankings as you please and note that there is commentary on some of the players where the ranking itself is hyperlinked.
  • Speaking of, I've been meaning to pull together a list of favorite podcasts for you all but since I was on the FBG website, I thought I could at least point you all to The Audible if you haven't already been listening to it. Scope it out for weekly insights brought to you podcast style. I always like to hear which podcasts you guys listen to the most, too - feel free to leave a note in the comments if you have a favorite. 
  • Now getting back to rankings that are freely available still, take a look at's positional Cheat Sheets - this one links out to their RBs.
  • For those of you who are planning a rookies-only draft at some point this summer, take a look at the outcome of a fantasy experts mock reviewed by Fantasy Knuckleheads - it's just 2 rounds but should give you a good idea of the ordering of the top rookies right now.
  • FootballandBrackets has been looking at players that seem to be shifting in the rankings these days - take a look at Risers and Fallers - WRs and TEs or head back a few days to QBs and RBs.
  • There are many mysteries in fantasy football, several situations that even the brightest and wisest of fantasy experts just won't be able to predict. But why not give it a stab and see what Dynasty League Football sees in store for the Patriots' backfield in Patriot Games: Vereen, Ridley, or none of the above?
  • Gotta love a statistically-based projection...well, I at least find it rather appealing. Don't get me wrong, gut/vision/instinct all play a roll in establishing projections as well but the numbers nerd in me likes seeing this evolving series from 
  • has now published their 2012 Draft Kit. Rankings, projections, sleepers, busts, etc. Voila!

Thanks very much for the links today and the one on Monday as well. My hits have gone up significantly. I hope that you and your readers stick around and read some of my other posts as well. I have one coming out that may not make one of your posts because it's not serious, but I'm doing something on the best Movie and TV football players of all-time. It's been fun to start and should finish it later this week.

great job as always,

My favorite podcast is The Audible from FBG's, I also like the Shutdown Corner podcast whenever Greg Cosell is on it.

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
