Week 11: Start or Sit?

Start or Sit Day is here! And my MNF countdown is now at 4 days - can't wait. If I could blog from the game, I certainly would. But there's lots of ground to cover before then so let's get right to the start/sit links for this week:
Tomorrow I will bring you my consensus start/sits and all other sorts of Friday fun.

A)Watch what you say about Miami

B) I'm fighting for my playoff life this week. Who starts -- Barber or Rudi J?
Dan revised his comment to:
I revise that, can start 3 out of these 5 -- Addai, Rudi J, Earnest G, Barber, Ryan Grant.

Hi Dan,
I picked up John Beck on a whim for my dynasty league - do I earn some points back in the Miami camp? My uncle is a huge Dolphins fan, too, so I suppose I should watch what I say about Miami now...

Anyway, good to hear from you. I'd go with Addai, Marion Barber and Ryan Grant. Rudi Johnson has a good matchup, I know, but I have lost faith in his ability to move the ball...really at all.

Hope that helps get you to the playoffs, Dan, and hope all is well in NYC.

Who do you think has the better matchup this week, Warrick Dunn or Maurice Morris? Beyond that, which do you think has the better chance of holding onto their starting job down the stretch?

Great website, by the way.
Mike,
If Shaun Alexander doesn't play this week, then I think Morris is the better play over Dunn. Long term though? Man, neither one is all that appealing. Do you mean past this season? Dunn is in his 11th year, I think, and Morris just doesn't seem to have that extra juice that a #1 RB needs. Or do you mean later this season?

I just meant through the end of the season (weeks 14-16). I know they're both bottom-of-the-barrel, but I was just considering each as a potential 5th RB (after Addai, Barber, LenDale, and Ryan Grant). I would have liked to have added Earnest Graham (great playoff schedule), but he was already picked up.

I need two of these running backs. Either Frank Gore, Willis McGahee or Edgerrin James. Tell me which two.
I think I'd go with Gore and McGahee this week - but if Gore doesn't play this week (though he should!), the Edge is a great substitute this week. I know there are some Gore naysayers but he's still got the skills and his performance against the Rams earlier this season was great...something to keep in mind.

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
