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

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

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
