Consensus Week 3 start/sit

Again, sorry for the brevity - don't worry, I won't be traveling again for quite some time! - but here are the consensus picks for Week 3. For those that haven't seen the consensus picks before, I go through all of the start/sit links that I posted earlier this week and tally up those players that have the most votes as a start or sit player. These aren't necessarily my picks, just the players that the experts agree about the most!

Start: Eli Manning, Matt Schaub, Ben Roethlisberger, David Garrard, Trent Edwards
Sit: Matt Cassel, Brett Favre, Carson Palmer, Kerry Collins

Start: Willis McGahee, Tim Hightower, Felix Jones, Fred Jackson
Sit: Thomas Jones, Cedric Benson, Larry Johnson, Julius Jones, Willie Parker

Start: Mario Manningham, Santana Moss, Greg Jennings, Vincent Jackson, Terrell Owens, Jerricho Cotchery
Sit: Brandon Marshall, T.J. Housmandzadeh, Justin Gage

Start: Kellen Winslow, Chris Cooley, Dustin Keller, Brent Celek, Jeremy Shockey
Sit: Greg Olsen, Zach Miller, Visanthe Shiancoe

Start: Lawrence Tynes, Neil Rackers, Nate Kaeding

Sit: No consensus from the experts

Start: Denver Broncos, Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers
Sit: New England Patriots

I'm sorry, but there must be some mistake. There is no way that MJD wasn't a consensus sit/start. Elite running back going up against a defense that had been absolutely gutted by the run this year.
Most start/sit sites don't list studs, which MJD most certainly is, so you won't find studs on this consensus list very often if at all. Thanks for bringing this up - I keep forgetting to mention that when I describe the consensus that I run!

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'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 has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
