Friday start/sit and rankings

This week I have made tracks on the whole Halloween thing: we've got a big bag of candy ready to hand out, we've got a monkey costume for our son, and we've got one of those classic plastic pumpkin trick-or-treat things for him, too. This will be the first year that we take our son trick-or-treating and I'm kind of curious about how the whole candy thing goes. Does his candy just magically disappear overnight? Does it get doled out very slowly over the coming months? He's the kind of dude that subsists on crackers and air some most days and yet he's figured out that candy is delicious and should be hunted down at all costs. I'd like to inject spinach into a Reeses PB cup and hand that puppy over to him, but alas the candy companies haven't gotten on board with that one yet. We'll see how it all goes but for now I'm leaning towards the most-of-the-candy-leaves-the-house-immediately approach since my son's sugar intake and my ability to be an effective parent appear to be inversely related...

And a heads up that I'm planning a few weeks ahead for Halloween because, well, I'm a planner, but also my sister-in-law is quickly approaching her due date, meaning our family might jump in the car at any minute to head to Atlanta to snuggle our latest edition to the family. If I disappear on you again, you can assume that I'm busy welcoming our niece, but I will do my best to stay on top of things.

Also wanted to note that I added more links to rankings and projections this week after hearing from some of you that they are typically more helpful than start/sit links. Enjoy!

Let the candy flow. Just be sure that you and your husband inspect plenty of it, especially your favorite candy.

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
