Lineup advice for Week 10

Per the suggestion of our son's daycare teachers, we are now almost 2 weeks into potty training our son. I'm not gonna lie, this ain't for the faint of heart. I truly don't know if our son is old enough to really get it yet, but we're giving it a try and while it's so far relatively successful, it's also pretty intense; likely the most intense thing we've encountered with our son since getting him to sleep through the night. The first weekend we tackled this whole adios-to-diapers thing, my son, husband and I were all totally exhausted and sick of spending time in bathrooms and doing laundry. But we're deep in this now, we're gonna work with what we've got and give it our all...which is the way I feel about one of my fantasy teams. Yeah seriously, I'm making the potty/fantasy connection here because honestly one of my teams is like my son right now: a bit youthful and accident-prone but determined to get it right. My team has some nice strengths (Doug Martin) but far more weaknesses and underperforming players (Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford...yeah, I'm talking to you) - but I'm not giving up! Gotta work with what I've got, scope out the waivers, maybe make a trade, do what I've gotta do to keep the Ws coming.

Anyway, speaking of things that can help give your team a boost, I wanted to give you all a heads up that Pickemfirst is giving away a free upgrade to the Pro version of their product for the rest of the season. I've waxed on and on about Pickemfirst in the past but it's an awesome tool that I highly recommend for anyone in multiple fantasy leagues. Basically, it's a browser add-on that tells you which players are on your teams and also provides links to news, favorite sites, etc. Good stuff, you'll be really glad you're using it if you're a fantasy news hound...which you must be if you're here on this site.

Let's get to the Week 10 lineup links:

I think that it is a great age to be training using the potty but we don't have to forget the mess that they can do.
If it was for me I would have asked it for a long time:)

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
