Consensus Start/Sit and more!

A few quick links before we get to the consensus start/sit for the week...
  • Need some IDP advice? Scope out FFManiaxs' Week 8 IDP Start/Sit.
  • Okay deep leaguers, you're going to want to pay attention to's blog post Don't overlook the fantasy football depths. Names that only those in the deepest of leagues should be interested in, fyi.
  • I was on GoGameFace's GameOn podcast earlier this week talking about how I got my start, my love for the Broncos, and my conviction that Austin Miles Miles Austin (ahh, gotta love a name screw up -I'll blame that on Austin Collie and my 8th grade boyfriend, Austin. Perhaps if I'd dated a Miles...) is a great start this week. Bonus? You get to hear Bill Root from, too. 
  • Speaking of podcasts, back in September I spoke with some of the Fantasy Football Tonight guys (thanks Ryan and Jeff!), but there are many, many podcasts to chose from, which is one of the great features offered from Fantasy Football Search.
Consensus time - remember, I've gone to each of the start/sit sites I linked to earlier this week and pulled together the players with the most start and sit votes for the week. They're listed here in no particular order:

Start: Brett Favre, David Garrard, Jay Cutler
Sit: Donovan McNabb, Matt Ryan, Eli Manning, Matt Hasselbeck

Start: Steven Jackson, Matt Forte, Kevin Smith, Beanie Wells
Sit: Ryan Grant, Knowshon Moreno, Marshawn Lynch

Start: Austin Collie, Donnie Avery, Mike Sims-Walker, Devin Hester
Sit: Derrick Mason, Terrell Owens, Mario Manningham, both Steve Smiths (NYG and CAR), Ted Ginn Jr.

Start: Jeremy Shockey, Vernon Davis, Zach Miller
Sit: Tony Gonzalez, John Carlson, Visanthe Shiancoe, Todd Heap, Tony Scheffler

Start: Robbie Gould, Matt Prater
Sit: John Kasay

Start: Colts, Chargers, Bears, Cardinals
Sit: 49ers, Broncos

What do I do if all of my players are on the sit list????
I have Matt Ryan, Ryan Grant, Marshawn Lynch, Derrick Mason, and Steve Smith (NJ).
I really hate my match-ups this week. About the only no-brainers I have are MJD and Gates. The rest of them are just chuck'em in there and hope for the best.

Tony Gonzalez or Vernon Davis?
A good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless!
Your the best!!

Hey, fantasy football librarian mentioned here:

I am always perplexed by the impractical sit advice from the experts. Show me the team that is deep enough to sit Derrick Mason or Steve Smith(s) in the dregs of bye week and I'll show you a team that is (a) running away with the championship anyway or (b) in serious need of making a trade.

Not to mention they were dead wrong besides.

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

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
