Start/Sit Links for Week 17

A belated Merry Christmas to everyone - I've found it really hard to carve out time for a blog update while visiting with family so my apologies for going off the radar for a few days! I've now transitioned from visiting with my family in Virginia down to my husband's family in Tennessee. One of the best parts about being in Tennessee is my unbelievable ability to sleep late here - at least 10 AM every morning. It's glorious. But now we're off to visit grandmothers and such, so I'm hoping to get a quick start/sit list up that I'll try to add to (though a lot of sites have shut down for the season) and do a consensus start/sit for by tomorrow.

Also, I am doing another FFLibrarian's Challenge with NFL.com's Playoff Challenge for the postseason. Stay tuned on that front if you're interested - I should have a group set up by the end of this weekend.

NFL.com's Start 'em Sit 'em
Bruno Boys' Start em & Sit em - Week 17
The Talented Mr. Roto: Love/Hate for Week 17
The Hazean's Start & Sit
CBS Sportsline's Week 17 Start 'em and Sit 'em
ProFantasySports.com's Week 17 Start 'em/Bench 'em Report
Fighting Chance Fantasy's Who to Start, Who to Sit - Week 17
SportingNews.com's The Decider: Week 17 starts and sits

Finally, these aren't start/sit links but here's my weekly column with the Bruno Boys, Week 17 Sneaky Fantasy Options and my wrap-up article where I look at some of my favorite fantasy football resources of the 2008 season for the NY Times' Fifth Down should be up this weekend.

Hope you all are enjoying a great holiday season and best of luck to those who are still battling for the championship!

First, I really enjoy reading your blog; it's always a nice compilation of links. Second, I somehow made it to the championship of my league (this is my first year every playing fantasy football) and I now have a dilemma. I was planning on starting MJD and Pierre Thomas as my two backs. However, they're both a little banged up so I'm not so sure anymore. I also have Cedric Benson and Tashard Choice as options. What do you think I should do?
Hi Eric,
Congrats on making it to the championship game! It doesn't sound good for Thomas' chances of playing this week but MJD's chances do sound substantially better. Question is, will he have a decent showing since Jax has basically packed it in AND he faces the Baltimore run defense? I might go ahead and start Benson ahead of MJD and if Thomas doesn't play, Choice isn't too bad of an option either. Way to have some solid backups coming into Week 17, Eric. Good luck!

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
