Week 15: Start/Sit and Even More Waivers

Hello football friends. I can feel the playoffs creating a heightened sense of anxiety in many of you and a sudden total uncertainty in your lineups. While I certainly endorse taking a good, hard look at matchups, I do believe that you dance with them what brung you. BUT if you are anxious for some extra help and want to know who is worthy of grabbing off of waivers, take a look at my posts from Monday and yesterday - and there are a few more below as well. However, if you're really just in the mood for start/sit advice, don't worry, I've got some of those links below as well.

So first, the rest of the Week 15 waiver wire articles:
  • CBS Sports' Playing the Waiver Wire: One last chance - a fascinating note in here - "Only the Jets, Steelers, Jaguars, Titans, Chargers, Cowboys, Redskins, Falcons, Panthers, Cardinals and Ravens did not have a starting running back go down this season." Wow.
  •'s Fabiano: Start these waiver wire treasures - I had this conversation with my husband on Monday - where would you take Ryan Grant if your fantasy draft occurred today?
  • FF Today's Through the Wire: Week 15 - if you're interested in taking a gamble on which Arizona WR will step up this week, try Jerheme Urban. Or Bryant Johnson. Or just neither and call yourself lucky not to have a hand in that mess.
  • Fantasy Tailgate's Players of Interest - like a trip down memory lane for the 2007 season...
Now onto the start/sit sites that are up already for the week:
I'll be back tomorrow with more start and sit links!

1. Who's the better start this week: Carson Palmer @ SF or Kurt Warner @ NO?

2. I also have Chad Johnson on my team. Will he be covered by Nate Clements, and if so, am I looking at another disappearing act by Ocho Cinco?
1. I like Palmer better - the matchups are both pretty good but I like Palmer's receiving corps (and their good health!) better than Arizona's. Plus I think Palmer is just the better QB.

2. This one sort of depends on who else you have on your team - again, I like Chad's matchup this week and regardless of whether he's covered by Clements (there has been much discussion over whether or not Clements is actually one of the bigger busts of the season:, I think I'd be inclined to start Chad. But again, it all depends on who else you have on your team...

Which two WR should I start out of Housh, Welker, and Galloway? I am playing against Brady....
If you're playing against Brady, then definitely start Welker. I'd also go with Housh against an easy SF pass D - I'm sure Galloway will have a nice day as well but I just like the Palmer-Housh combo better.

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

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
