Closing out the week with Start/Sit links

Last month I went to a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire taping as some of you might remember, and I ended up in the catbird seat right next to the "honor companion" - the family member or friend who is there to support the contestant. Not only did I share awkward pleasantries with a person whose financial situation was on the verge of an overhaul, but I believe my left side repeatedly appeared on tv as the cameras focused on the honor companion. In fact I think my left arm's debut on national television happened yesterday but despite spending the majority of the day sniffling it out on my couch, I missed it. Fortunately I was there for two show tapings so I'll be tuning in today for the second episode. Extra perk? I'll feel brilliant knowing all the right answers...
Onto today's links - lots of start/sit articles first:
I'll be pulling together my consensus start/sit by tomorrow but for the best of the rest out there, read on:
  • Rotoworld's Week 3 Committee Report Highlights - good stuff. I picked up Jerome Harrison in one of my leagues but am hesitant to start him against a surprisingly decent Bengals rush defense. That said, Harrison was able to put up 85 yards on the Ravens.
  • Twitter led me to this very cool Interactive Defensive Matchup Tracker from Highly recommended.
  • IDPers who are thinking of making a change or have a bye week to cover, you'll want to take a look at Kilroyz Krystal Ball for the IDP Cheatsheet: Week Four.
  • If you're interested in some weekly rankings, take a look at FootballDocs. This link leads to WRs but QBs, RBs, and TEs are also available. How interested are you guys in seeing various rankings? Are rankings more or less valuable than start/sit sites? I'd be happy to add more rankings (and weekly projections?) to my links if you're interested in them.
Finally, on the stolen content front, I just wanted to thank you all for your support and point out that I don't mind having sites that link to me or even post my content in full - as long as my site is credited and preferably linked to as the original source. Also, just wanted to clarify that the difference between what I do here (linking to other sites) and what that site thief did (post my content word-for-word without any note that the post was written by me) is substantial. I'll be taking the advice spam blog advice you all shared with me and hope that this guy goes away. By the way, you guys are awesome - I've been battling this cold and you all have sent get well wishes, kind words, and even cold remedies. I'm one lucky blogger.

Hi Sara,

Just wanted to let you know that your site is awesome. You provide a valuable service to the fantasy sports community and make our jobs as fantasy owners easier by posting informative links that we'd otherwise have to spend time searching for and sifting through; kinda like a one-stop-shop!!'s free!!

I have turned several people on to your site in hopes that they too will benefit. Thanks again!

FYI, the and RotoExperts Start/Sit are the same article.
Thanks kcbucfan!

scotteb, thanks for the heads up - thought I had only left the RotoExperts version/link in. Whoops. As always, much appreciated for the heads up when I do something like that or just have the wrong link in!

Hi Sara.. Im really enjoying your site!

Wondering if you could offer an opinion on my TE/WR situation this week...With Gonzo on a bye

I start 3 total with a WR/TE flex included.

Right now im going
Welker (injury permiting)
Owen Daniels - should be good play against oakland

But i also have
Roy Williams - Hurt me last week!
Braylon Edwards - Derick Anderson??
Derick Mason - ??

All 3 could put up good numbers.. not really sure how to play this, any thoughts??

16 team League, Standard Scoring with PPR

Bye week & injury to Gonzalez is killing me at WR this week.

I have to start 2 of these WR's

Eddie Royale (Den) vs Cowboys
Keenan Burton (StL) vs 49'ers
Kenny Britt (TN) vs Jag's
Jabar Gaffney (Den) vs Cowboys

Not much on WW with a 16 team league, but I can pick up Chris Henry


Thanks!!! BTW Gr8t Site
Last minute start/sit advice here - sorry for being so late!

Anon - I like your lineup as is. I'm not sold on Williams these days and while I think Edwards could have a decent day, Holmes is likely to shine again at home. Stay with your lineup, I say.

Other Anon - I think I'd rank those guys Royal, Britt, Henry, Burton, I'd roll with starting Royal and Britt and hope for the best!

Good luck all!

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. Spiller, Beanie Wells, Ronnie Brown WR Start: Santana Moss, Legedu Naanee, Malcolm Floyd, Mike Williams (TB), Dez Bryant Sit: Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree TE Start: Chris Cooley, Todd Heap, John Carlson, Jermichael Finley Sit: Jermaine Gresham, Owen Daniels, Tony Scheffler, Jeremy Shockey, Bo Scaife Kicker Start: La

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
