Consensus start and sit picks for Week 8

As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted to try something new this week - a start/sit digest of sorts where I give you the most popular starts and sits across the board. I'm basing this off of the start and sit sites that I linked to yesterday as well as a few more that went up in the past 24 hours or so. So first, let's take a look at some of the new start or bench sites that have gone up since my post yesterday:
And now the start/bench consensus picks from the experts for Week 8...
  • QB
    • Start: Brian Griese, McNabb and Bulger
    • Sit: Jason Campbell, the Carolina QB, Kitna and Favre
  • RB
    • Start: Marshawn Lynch, Brandon Jacobs and LenDale White
    • Sit: Kenny Watson/Rudi Johnson duo, Laurence Maroney and Ahman Green
  • WR
    • Start: Santonio Holmes, Kevin Curtis, Bernard Berrian, and Lee Evans
    • Sit: Santana Moss, Ike Hilliard, and Donald Driver
  • TE
    • Start: Donald Lee, Tony Scheffler, Heath Miller, and Jeremy Shockey
    • Sit: Chris Cooley, Vernon Davis, and Jeff King
  • Kicker
    • Start: Dawson, Tynes and Bironas
    • Sit: these were across the board but there was some consensus on sitting Kasay, Feely, Suisham, Hanson, Graham, and Janikowski
  • Defense/ST
    • Start: Giants and Bucs with Colts, Eagles, and Chargers also getting multiple votes
    • Sit: Redskins, Texans, and Panthers
Later this afternoon I'll pull together my Friday IDP Forecast so check back for that info. Good luck this weekend!

I use your website every day of the FFL season to find waiver wire tips, start 'em / sit 'em tips, and general fantasy news. This is an excellent "One-Stop" answer to locating the best resources available on the net.

I also like your new idea for compiling the start 'em lists you read from different sites.

Thanks for the hard work and great site!
Glad to hear the site is helpful (thanks for the great feedback...and for coming by the blog every day!) - I will keep up the compilation of start/sit lists.

yeah seriously - you do an awesome job putting together a "one-stop" collection of great links. After all, you can never read enough before making that crucial start/sit decision at game time... Thanks!

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
