Finding the awesomeness

I mentioned on here awhile back that our house is under construction and has been now for about 5-6 weeks or so. It has been quite the summer here between the chaos of our house (which has included learning of extensive water and termite damage...sweet, right? I have the termite guy's phone number memorized and our son now starts every morning by asking for the construction crew individually by name) and losing our Caroline. So I'm pretty sure my husband and I have been actively seeking out things that just feel fun and joyful. Earlier this week my brother-in-law called and convinced us to drive down to Atlanta (where he lives) next Monday for the Broncos at Falcons MNF game. We'll go down and back all in the span of 15 hours and my in-laws are happily taking over the care of our son for that time period. I can't tell you how excited I am for this. A road trip with my husband plus a Monday Night Football game watching my Broncos, all while my little boy is being lovingly cared for by family? Awesomeness. This is exactly the kind of thing that makes me happy and therefore exactly the kind of thing I should be doing more of these days. I'll be the one in the Broncos Elam jersey in case you're there. Maybe I should make/wear a FFLibrarian shirt to do a little marketing...

Time for today's links:
Finally, I think I ask this same question more or less every year, but I'd love your feedback on what you find helpful here on this site. Toward the end of the week once waivers have cleared, I typically try and post start/sit links and weekly rankings and/or projections. Is there anything I'm missing or would you like me to focus on one of those more than others?

Oh and don't forget to get your lineups set for the game tonight...

Sounds like you guys have a great trip planned. Personally I don't care the outcome of the game so I'll pull for the Broncos for you. Just gimme a monster game from Julio.

Thanks for the link and good luck in your games this week.

Everything is good. Keep doing what you are doing. I'm still living off of the football daily planner advice from a while ago. Good place to find lots of articles fast.

Keep doing what you do. This is a hidden gem---not telling anyone else in my 16 team league, which includes my two sons!

Appreciate your work!

Welcome back FFLibrarian. I was a little worried there for a couple weeks...until I saw the reason for your hiatus. So sorry to hear that. Good to hear things are getting better. Your readers love you. Take care and keep up the great work.

New to the site and loving it. Provides excellent links to all information you need to know to get your pickups to setting your line-ups. Now if you could only find the site to predict future injuries.... owned Forte in all my leagues :(

I'm so happy your brother convinced your husband to make the trip. Hope you're having a great time reuniting with family and I hope the Broncos give you the win you truly deserve.

As to ideas for your blog: I've been using your blog as my mainstay since your NYT column in your first year, but this is my first year in an IDP league...and I am clueless. I'd like to have links to advice/analysis and rankings/projections late in the week. Thanks if you can do it

Please excuse the echo in here, but keep doing what you do.

Great job, FF Librarian!

My main suggestion is to add any links you are aware of that rank players based on rest-of-season value. Rankings for the current week are all over the internet, but rest-of-season rankings are much rarer and very helpful.

Everything you do is great, but my only suggestion would be to post more updated in-season rankings, not just the weekly ones.

After each week is played it would be nice to know where your players currently rank so you can know if it would be wise to drop someone for a wavier wire player, and gauge potential trades.

thanks!

Love your site....I think the updated rest of season rankings are very very helpful. Also I'm wondering why most of the weekly rankings aren't PPR since I think at this point more leagues than not are PPR.
Thanks

I love your site. I'm with the rest of the commenters. I'm keeping this a secret from every person I play against. I find the waiver wire resources most helpful. Thanks for everything!

I am so sorry Denver lost, but McGahee's epic night gave me the 17 points I needed to take the lead in one of my match ups. I hope you had a wonderful trip! I keep thinking about you and hope you are doing okay.

Start/Sit and Waiver links are always used and appreciated. I always like any information as the season winds down on good keepers. Your site is so fantastic, and like others, I keep you a closely guarded secret.

I think your site is amazing! The one thing that I struggle with is identifying good Tuesday morning pick-ups. What resource can you recommend that will allow me to get a great recap of past week studs in time for 9AM waiver wire Tuesday morning?

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
