Ease into your Monday with fantasy links

What a weekend. Turns out I kind of love Halloween. Our oldest (the picky eater) tried a Kit Kat for the first time ("this is amazing, have you tried this before, Mommy? It tastes just like candy!") and our youngest melted my heart with his repeated use of "thank you" all night long. Of course the night ended in total chaos with our sugared-up, naked, overly-exhausted kids running around the house, but hey, good times. And I can't stop liking photos on Facebook of all my friends' kids and dogs dressed up and gleefully enjoying this tradition. But that said, I could really use a long, tropical vacation right about now. I'm pretty sure the best thing that one spouse can do for another when there are young children around, is to provide an opportunity for sleeping in. I had no idea that I had this deep and abiding love for sleeping in until it became such a rare commodity. So my husband wins some sort of award for swooping the boys up on Sunday morning and taking them out for a daylight savings time breakfast (at a painfully early hour) while I slept in. The day just kept getting better as several fun games played out in the NFL and the Broncos D once again dominated.

The day was filled with some mighty fantasy performances. Pretty sure my sister is sitting around, cackling with joy at her good fortune of having Drew Brees, Demaryius Thomas, Rob Gronkowski, and Justin Tucker (pretty sure we could be friends in real life, btw) among others on her team. If you're having a hard time getting going this morning and are looking for a little football talk to ease into the day, then I have a few links for you....

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
