Week 1 rankings and start/sits

It's going down tonight, friends. As a Bronco fan, I am so ready for tonight's game. Am trying to rally the troops in our house to get the Broncos energy/hype up high, but honestly the most exciting thing that happened in our house today (so far!) is that I came to eat lunch with my kindergartener in his cafeteria. This is kind of a big deal. It also occurred at 10:30 AM, which is amusing. Per the class rules, my son was allowed to pick 1 friend to eat with us and I watched as he approached a new friend and asked if he wanted to have lunch together. Guys, this kid hardly even responded. Just shook his head and my poor boy asked again, receiving a firmer rejection this time. Oh the daggers I sent into the back of that kid's head. Oh man. The next boy he asked practically fell out of his seat with excitement to eat with us, so I'd like to think things have evened out in the friend universe, but I shall not forget you, first kid. That image of my son's crestfallen face is imprinted on my memory. Here's hoping the first kid redeems himself since he is, after all, only 5 or 6 years old and hardly capable of making the kindest decisions...but do not scorn my kid in my presence. Ever. I will notice and remember with the force of a fierce motherly elephant brain. 

And perhaps the Panthers will be filled with some ferocity tonight, never forgetting Super Bowl 50. Or maybe you need a little fantasy redemption and want to show your league your total domination with a magnificent Week 1 performance. If so, I'm here to help with a bevy of links below.

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
