Cornucopia of Start/Sit Links

How about the CU Buffs?! Despite working for CU, I'm not even a huge Colorado fan (it goes back to the whole Gary Barnett suddenly leaving my alma mater, Northwestern, to come to CU) but I think it's worth mentioning that they beat #21 West Virginia in a solid overtime game last night. Well done, Buffs, well done.

So there have been a few of you who have asked where in the Westwood One program I do an analysis of QBs for Week 3 - it's about 1/3 of the way through the program (starting maybe 18 or 19 minutes in). I'd love to hear any feedback since this was the first time I've done a radio or podcast segment and have been toying with whether or not to do them more often. I know I'm not a radio natural so any feedback would be appreciated.

FYI, this will likely be my first post for the day - I'll get some IDP advice and consensus start/sit info up later today.
  • First up, my post on the NY Times' Fifth Down blog - Fantasy Football: Upheaval and Advice has a few of my favorite links for the week, most of which I didn't post here on my blog already, and an update on my use of the FFNerd to make start/sit decisions.
  • Don't sweat Brandon Marshall's latest news - he knew charge was coming as did the NFL. There is some discrepancy as to whether or not this will result in another suspension or not, but the trial won't occur for several months (November at the earliest) so if there is another suspension, it likely won't take place until 2009. For now, breathe easy, Marshall owners.
  • Read some quick thoughts on this week's upcoming games from Rotoworld in Can the Jags Still Run?
Now for the cornucopia of start or sit sites for the week:

Start/sit question: I start two RBs and my options are: Julius Jones, Michael Turner, and LT. The thing with LT is that he plays monday, so if I wait on him and have to make a last minute change my only option is adding L Washington as a free agent. Thanks

Out of all your links who do you feel consistently has the best INTEL and advice??

Hey Brian... I'll solve your problem and trade you Sproles for Michael Turner ;)

But really, anyone think Sproles is worth a flex start this week? Awesome links as always, librarian.

This is quite a helpful site! Neat recommendations of other FF links as well....thanks,A2L
Hi Brian,
I think that Turner will have a great game and Julius Jones is also poised to do really well this week. It's hard to advise sitting LT, but that's what I would suggest in this circumstance. As for Sproles, I do think he'd make a great flex player this week but relying on him to be one of your 2 RBs for the week might be asking a bit too much.

James, you have asked me the hardest question of all. Each site has its own pluses and minuses but I think two of my favorites are Rotoworld and The Huddle. But I love the news/intel from KFFL and there are blogs like FFGoat and The Hazean that I really value. FFOutsiders and Football Docs are also two other great sites. Man, this is hard - I could keep going for awhile here...

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
