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.

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
