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
  • WR

    • Sit: Roy Williams, Marques Colston, Donald Driver, Derrick Mason
  • TE

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

I love this blog :)
