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.

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J.

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
