Treasure box hunt with waivers

In our house, we are deep into bribery and treats and triumphs: a process also known as potty training. My oldest son and I hit up the dollar store and created a vast selection of awesomeness for our youngest to select from whenever he was successful on the ol' potty. And frankly, much to my surprise since this kid has been fighting the process for awhile, it's worked like a charm. We've got tattoos, stickers, googly eye glasses, little trucks, bouncy balls, crayons, and playdoh. Do you know what has happened? There is only one thing this boy wants out of there: playdoh playdoh playdoh. He could not care less about the rest of it. If we filled his world with playdoh, he'd still beg for more. So now I'm a playdoh-purchasing machine over here since I have found my secret weapon (yes, tried to make homemade playdoh and I must lack the correct crafty kitcheny DNA to make that happen). It's highly possible that in 2 weeks I'll be back at square one, trying to find the next motivator, but for now, I bow down to playdoh.

So let's delve into this week's treasure box and see what kind of waiver wire secret weapon you can find...plenty of injuries to hit Week 2, so I'm guessing some of you all might need the assist:

You will have some relapses with the potty training, but once he is there, he will mostly stay there. Congrats!

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
