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.

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

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

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...

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

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

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
