Week 2 Consensus Start/Sit

Well better late than never! I got back from a fantastic trip to Colorado late last night and am trying to catch up on start/sit questions in my inbox - and of course the weekly consensus start & sit.  I went 5-4 in my 9 leagues last week so I'm also off to tweak my lineups a bit and aim for a 9-0 week. Now wouldn't that be something?!

Just a reminder that the consensus list I'm posting below is based on all of the start/sit links that I post during the week - I note the players that have the most start or sit votes from all of those websites in no particular order:

Start: Matt Hasselbeck, Jason Campbell, Joe Flacco, Trent Edwards, Brett Favre
Sit: Jay Cutler, Chad Pennington, Mark Sanchez, Carson Palmer, Matt Schaub

Start: Brandon Jacobs, Darren McFadden, Fred Jackson, Chris Johnson, Clinton Portis
Sit: Matt Forte, Cedric Benson, Kevin Smith, LaDainian Tomlinson, Joseph Addai, Steven Jackson

WR - update: Forgot to update these from Week 1 at first! My apologies for those who saw these before the update...blame it on the jet lag. :)
Start: Percy Harvin, Santana Moss, Terrell Owens, Santonio Holmes
Sit: Antonio Bryant, Devin Hester, Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery

Start: Zach Miller, Chris Cooley, Todd Heap
Sit: Jeremy Shockey, Ben Watson

Oddly, for the first time in the past 2-3 years that I've been doing the consensus start sit, there's absolutely no agreement on which kickers to start or sit. So you're on your own, buckos.

Start: Atlanta Falcons, Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers
Sit: Again, no consensus on defenses that you should sit.

Enjoy today's games and I'll be back tomorrow with some early waiver wire advice and Sunday recaps!

Start: Eddie Royal, Chad OchoCinco, DeSean Jackson, Anthony Gonzalez, Derrick Mason


Other than Mason, the rest are obvious sits.

And by the way, Gonzalez is OUT!

Ocho isn't an abvious sit.

I'm benching Schaub and starting Campbell per your recommendation... I hope that ends up being smart!

Jet lag not helping the consensus picks....
Ooops! You guys pointed out that I forgot to update this week's WR picks...hang on on that front.

But keep in mind, these aren't MY picks. These are consensus picks.

The consensus picks missed on Schaub/Campbell. I sat Schaub and he threw 4 TDs. Campbell threw zero.

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J.

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
