Week 9 Rankings, Start/Sit

There was a time in my life (and perhaps you're in that time of your life now), when I couldn't have cared less about playground mulch. Wouldn't have even known it was a thing. Put some dirt down below that playground and tell kids to watch out, I would have said. Bwaahahaha. Yes, "watch out" always seems to do the trick and keep em safe. Anyway, fast forward to now when we built an amazing play structure in our backyard replete with climbing wall and slide for our boys and we had to ask them to wait for weeks before using it since it lacked the requisite mulch to cushion their falls. (Note: asking a 5- and 2-year-old to not go down a tube slide day after day is asking them to do things of epic proportions. Many stuffed animals were thrown down the slide in their stead.) Of course the mulch turned out to require a retaining wall and this backyard project evolved into the most epic, bank account-crushing gift to our boys ever thus far, but I've spent a lot of time this week contemplating types and colors and quantity of playground mulch. I mean, it's a whole industry, my football friends. Amazing. But once it was all in place and my boys were wildly throwing themselves all over the play structure (and yes, we've already had one fall), I lay down on top of my beautiful new mulch and looked up at the most gorgeous red-leafed autumnal scene. And gave thanks for the pain the ass that this whole backyard project has been. Since here I am in good health with happy boys and time to mull over mulch and blog about football. And you, whatever else you have going on in your life, you are free to sit here and read this. So let's all get Thanksgiving-y and give thanks to whatever/whomever you want for that luxury.

But really, now I'm off my thankfulness reminder mode - you're here for the start/sits aren't you? Or maybe the rankings or IDP info? So here you go:

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

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
