Consensus Start and Sit Picks for Week 9

Before we get to this week's consensus start and sit suggestions, here are a few more start and sit sites that were not included in my post from yesterday.
And now onto the consensus picks for week 9. I started this feature last week and am tallying up all the start and sit votes I see on the start 'em sit 'em lists I link to every week. Then I give you a list of the 3-5 most popular start and sit players for each position. So if you're short on time and don't want to read every single start/sit article, then read on...
  • QB
    • Start: Matt Hasselbeck, Philip Rivers, Jay Cutler, J.P. Losman
    • Sit: Kurt Warner, Steve McNair, Vince Young, Jon Kitna, David Carr
  • RB
    • Start: Shaun Alexander, Kevin Jones, Marshawn Lynch, Clinton Portis
    • Sit: DeShaun Foster (and/or Williams), Willis McGahee, Willie Parker, Ryan Grant, Julius Jones

thanks for the aggregation! Of course, many owners can't sit certain guys despite bad matchups. I see it more of a "lower your expectations" on the sit 'ems that you own.

For instance, I'm in a league where I have Travis Henry and Ryan Grant that I'm deciding between as my flex. If Henry is limited or out, I'll have to go with Grant, despite a somewhat tough matchup against KC. KC is no Denver, but they can be run on, so I've got a game-time decision to make.

Henry was named the start, he has been practicing with them.

Yep, I understand he's starting, but with the suspension looming, injury and Selvin Young in the wings, I'm not feeling too confident about the number and productivity of his touches.

Thanks FFL - I did start Kitna and he finally had another good game. Hopefully he's back on track.

Thanks anon for the link - after visiting there and checking the ratings, I dropped Elam and added Hanson and did much better in points.

I love this blog :)

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

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J.

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
