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.

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
