Consensus Start and Sit Picks for Week 14

It's snowing today in Colorado - 2 to 3 feet up in the mountains! - even though it was 70 on Tuesday. Gotta love this crazy state. But that has nothing to do with football, which is why you're all really here. So I posted a bunch of start/sit links yesterday and Wednesday but there are of course several more that you may want to know about:
Okay, so who are the consensus picks this week? Remember, this isn't a must-start list, just recommendations across the board based on the most frequent start or sits from all of these links.
  • QB
    • Start: David Garrard, Drew Brees, Carson Palmer, Tony Romo (I can't believe I just had to type that), Big Ben, Derek Anderson, Matt Hasselbeck
    • Sit: Philip Rivers, Eli Manning, Kyle Boller, Sage Rosenfels, Kurt Warner
  • RB
    • Start: Ryant Grant, Jamal Lewis, Earnest Graham, Kolby Smith, Travis Henry
    • Sit: Frank Gore, Kevin Jones, DeShaun Foster, Laurence Maroney
  • WR

This week I'm sitting Addai... can't believe I'm doing it, but I have Grant and Kolby so hopefully I'll be fine considering their matchups. Joe Addy just ain't been adding up to much lately, and Baltimore might be out for blood this week if the Pats game didn't knock 'em out.

Thanks for the links.

Any idea what Marion Barber's going to do against Detroit? He's a good runner, but he's just been inconsistent at times this season.
Thanks Freddie - always good to hear from you.

Glad to be of help, Sammy, and I actually just recommended sitting Addai to two people today that had better matchups. Addai has just been cold lately and the Ravens D can be troublesome...

Barber has a pretty decent history against the Lions - in their last 2 meetings, he's scored a total of 3 TDs. Not bad - I think he'll be a running machine on the Lions, especially when the Cowboys go up big on them and turn to the run.

Start Alge Crumpler.
Man, that's funny stuff.

David Garrard is money, though.

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
