Week 3 Consensus Start/Sit and IDP info

Let's start off this afternoon post with the consensus start/sit picks for Week 3 - I'm basing this off of 15 start/sit sites that I've linked to since Wednesday (either on this blog or on my NY Times piece). In no particular order, here's a list of the players with the most "votes" for start/sit.

QB
Start: Jay Cutler, Brett Favre, J.T. O'Sullivan, Matt Cassel, Drew Brees
Sit: Carson Palmer, Matt Schaub, Derek Anderson, Jason Campbell, David Garrard

RB
Start: Frank Gore, Michael Turner, Maurice Jones-Drew, Julius Jones, Chris Johnson
Sit: Jamal Lewis, Ronnie Brown, Earnest Graham, Ryan Grant, Chris Perry, DeAngelo Williams

WR
Start: Brandon Marshall, Steve Smith, Plaxico Burress, Jerricho Cotchery, Bryant Johnson, Wes Welker
Sit: Santana Moss (had almost an equal number of start votes as well), Dwayne Bowe, Lee Evans, Chad Johnson/OC, Roddy White, Braylon Edwards, Bernard Berrian, Chris Chambers

TE
Start: John Carlson, Tony Scheffler, Jason Witten
Sit: Owen Daniels, Kevin Boss

Kicker
Start: Joe Nedney, Matt Prater
Sit: Robbie Gould, Shayne Graham, Kris Brown

D/ST
Start: Titans, Giants, Bills
Sit: Jags, Packers, Steelers

Now onto IDP advice for the week - by the way, I'm in the market for more IDP links so please post a comment or e-mail me if you've found any sites you like for IDP advice:
And then finally, a link that fits in no one category (perhaps why I love it so): Fantasy Tailgate's Offensive Line Rankings updated for Week 3.

I think you mean Derek Anderson in the QB section...I also think you have to seriously considering anybody in the 49ers/Lions game. Especially Jon Kitna, and Calvin Johnson, who will eat up that secondary of the 49ers...all while their secondary is eaten up.

Thanks for the summary... my Saturday is usually spent cruzing Sit/Start sites.
Well done.

I find it interesting that the Offensive Line rankings in sacks usually correlates to the performance of the RBs on the team. The exception being the 49ers with Frank Gore doing well. That might be more a function of Mad Mike Martz schemes leaving the QB open for hits.

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
