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...

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 :)

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
