Week 5 Consensus Start/Sit

Hi all - again, another brief post. I'm in Portland and getting ready to drink a little Stumptown Coffee on my way to the great Powell's bookstore. It's a bookworm's dream. But first, football.

Here are the consensus start or sit picks based on advice from 12 different experts that I linked to in my blog this week - these are the players with the most start or sit votes from the experts.

QB
Start: Jay Cutler, Philip Rivers, Brian Griese, Peyton Manning, Kyle Orton, Jake Delhomme
Sit: Matt Schaub, J.T. O'Sullivan, Kerry Collins

RB
Start: Steve Slaton, Matt, Forte, Earnest Graham, Ryan Grant, Michael Turner, Jonathan Stewart
Sit: LenDale White, Rudi Johnson, Julius Jones, Fred Taylor

WR
Start: Calvin Johnson, Chris Chambers, Greg Jennings, Lance Moore, Bernard Berrian, Randy Moss
Sit: Dwayne Bowe, Isaac Bruce - there was very little consensus on these guys in general...

TE
Start: Anthony Fasano, Chris Cooley, Greg Olsen
Sit: John Carlson, Todd Heap, Alge Crumpler

Kicker
Start: Jason Elam, Matt Bryant, John Kasay, Kris Brown
Sit: Matt Stover, Joe Nedney

D/ST
Start: Jags, Panthers
Sit: Redskins, Seahawks, Texans, Bucs

I need to start two Wide-Receivers from these three. Who would you pick out of:

Steve Smith (CAR), Andre Johnson, Lance Moore

Steve Smith is a lock for sure, but Andre Johnson over Lance Moore? I'm not sure... :(
hi rushi, I would start smith and johnson even though there's a solid chance that Moore will put up better numbers than Johnson. I think you've just got to stay with Andre for a little while longer...though that might just be naive...:)
Good luck...

ah, i would qualify as a FF klutz. I benched Andre Johnson because Scahub isn't playing... and guess what.. 100 yards and a TD already for AJ.

I start Jonathan Stwart for the first time today after 4 weeks on the bench and DeAngelo Williams has 3 TDs

Another TD from either of them, and im going Hulk-angry.

Lesson of the day: Never drop your stud players (See AJ above)
They will start scoring when you least expect it. ex: Andre Johnson, Randy Moss, Housh

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
