Week 16 - Start/Sit and Waivers

I got to work this morning and for the first time in days, college kids weren't crammed into every corner of the library, desperately studying for finals. I'm starting to feel badly for the kids that are still here with finals left - and sorry for myself, too, quite frankly. I think that throughout our lives, we should all still get winter, spring and summer breaks. That hasn't worked out for me quite yet. I would likely spend much of that time focusing on football of course.

For those of you in Atlanta, you may just be digesting the Big Tuna news, but I know this is a big week for everyone that's still in the chase, so read on for start and sit advice for Week 16. First though, there are still a few waiver wire articles to post - and even more waiver links from my posts on Monday and Tuesday if you missed those.
Now to those start/sit links for the upcoming week:
More start/sit links tomorrow!

Fantasy Football Librarian... will you marry me?

Because of you and all your wisdom, I am in the finals of my league, a vast improvement over my last place finish last season.

I owe it all to you.

Now, what to do against a 12-1 (regular season) team? I'm only (7-6) and lost to him before after an abysmal performance by McNabb and Westbrook against the Giants, but last week, had I played him, I would've smoked him in points.

ESPN's preview of the match up says it's a push! Gotta' pick the right lineup and with Westbrook injured and questionable, I'm freaking out.

I've got:

Hines Ward
Greg Jennings
Owen Daniels
Pats D/ST
Josh Brown (K)

On my bench I have:

Chester Taylor
Roddy White
Chris Brown
Desmond Clark
Kevin Curtis
Bills D/ST

What to do?

Whatever the case, this season of FFL has been a whole lot more fun now that I'm actually winning!

Thanks for everything!

Hmmm - all the sites say to bench Clinton Portis because the Vikings have been impenetrable against the rush. My alternative is Chester Taylor, who is a total crapshoot with AP in the picture.

Fred taylor or Brandon Jacobs
Always nice to hear from you Victor - hmm, okay so I like your WRs a lot. I think I'd rather stick with Portis than play Taylor. Portis is a #1 back, the Vikings may be the toughest run D, but they aren't impenetrable. If the Skins keep giving Portis carries as they should with Collins at QB and Portis' ability to catch the ball as well as run it, I think Portis will be fine as your RB2. Westbrook will be fine. Stick with what you have, I say. I'm a little hesitant about McNabb but he's got the win against Dallas and a horrible NO defense on his side.

The other question on Fred Taylor or Brandon Jacobs - Taylor. He's been on fire and he faces the Oakland D. Doesn't get a whole lot better than that.

A quick list of some guys to get for week 16:

If they're somehow still available: A. Stecker, S. Gado, Shaun McDonald and A. Gonzalez

Best of the Rest: DJ Hackett (coming back from injury-could play), Roydell Williams, D. Rhodes (but Jordan might get a chance), David Patten, Reggie Williams, Sage Rosenfels.

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
