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 KFFL.com'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 RotoExperts.com, 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:

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

RB
Start: Steven Jackson, Matt Forte, Kevin Smith, Beanie Wells

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

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
