Lots of start/sits for Week 5

I've got blogger's block this morning so instead of detailing the meandering thoughts in my head or life in Brooklyn, I'll instead just skip the chit chat and jump right to today's links. Lots to look at:
  • Who doesn't want advice on the Top 5 Most Likely to Go Off - Week 5? See which players are going to knock you over with their stat lines this week. In a good way. 
  • Lester's Legends brings us Week 5's Fantasy Football Out on a Limb - will Wells outperform Benson this week?
  • I've got my weekly top links up in the NY Times' Fifth Down - Week 5 in Fantasy Football Matchups - and there's lots of great lineup advice there, too, from the Sablich brothers. They do a fantastic job at responding to start/sit questions in the comments, so ask away!
  • I had a handful of IDPers that I needed to replace for this week's bye so I first turned to FFToday's IDP Notes for the latest and greatest news on the IDP front.  
Let's mosey on over to the start/sit advice available for the week:
Rankings for Week 5:
I've been thinking a lot about running my annual accuracy challenge on these weekly rankings - not sure it's something that I can promise to deliver each week but I might take a stab at it one of these weeks. Would that be of interest? I'd try to go back in time to gather weekly rankings from the start of the season, too, and then we'd have a multi-week look at the most accurate weekly rankings. If this sounds as delightful as I think it would be, let me know.

Thanks for linking my out on a limb picks again. Last week you were my good luck charm so hopefully I have similar success.

An accuracy challenge does sound delightful.

An accuracy challenge on the weekly rankings sounds like a ton of work and it certainly is not expected, but would be greatly appreciated. If you decide to proceed it would no-doubt provide the fantasy sports community with 1more reason(as if they even need it) why your website is considered one of the best kept secrets and ultimately a necessity for all serious fantasy owners. Thanks for all you do.

An accuracy challenge sounds absolutely delightful. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

is it time to sell high on Steve Smith (NYG)? Think he can continue to produce like a top 15 WR?

I would love to see accuracy rankings...I do however think they will be all over the map week to week...but it would be cool to see who guessed the best for the year...LOL

I would look to sell Manningham if you can. I think his value dips more when winter kicks in.

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
