Consensus Start/Sit for Week 12

My husband and I are enjoying a pretty entertaining college game right now - Tennessee Vols vs Kentucky Wildcats - and while my husband, who grew up in Knoxville, would like the Vols to be thoroughly dominating, I'm at least pulling for an exciting game. But we're at halftime now which gives me a chance to post some weekend links and the consensus start/sit for Week 12 of course.

Links first!
  • If you're trying to make some tricky lineup decisions, take a look at Fantasy Football Trader's positional rankings for the week - link goes to RBs.
  • Or maybe cruise on over to Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy's Week 12 Projections - heads up for those in PPR leagues since these projections are catered to those of you in leagues with 1 point per reception. More projections are also available at The Fantasy Football Report - check out their WR projections.
  • I was a pilgrim for Halloween one year. Yes, seriously. In retrospect it seems like such an odd choice for my 7-year-old mind to have made considering I was coming off three solid years as a clown, a bunny, and a princess...pretty standard costumes, right? Only to be followed by a pilgrim. Who knows what was going on in my mind but I always seem to think about it around Thanksgiving time - and of course images like that found on Fantasy Football Fools' Week 12 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders trigger the memories of my Halloween pilgrimage 23 years ago. Man, that makes me feel old. 
  • I've got a couple of sleeper articles for you - one from, Hasselbeck, Williams among the top fantasy sleepers for Week 12, and one from FOX Sports, Top 10 sleepers for Week 12.
  • A roundtable discussion from some of my favorite FF minds - Fantasy Football Whiz hosts the question of who will be this week's sleepers and busts.
Moving on to the consensus start/sit picks. Remember, I create this list by looking at all the start/sit suggestions from experts throughout the week and I tally up which players have the most start or sit votes. Keep in mind that studs aren't typically included, nor are total duds. So there will be obvious players not listed here...

Start: Carson Palmer, Brett Favre, Matt Hasselbeck, Matt Ryan
Sit: Jay Cutler, Donovan McNabb, Joe Flacco

Start: Jason Snelling (note the latest Turner news though), Ricky Williams, Justin Forsett
Sit: Rock Cartwright, Matt Forte, Rashard Mendenhall, Kevin Smith

Start: Nate Burleson, Michael Crabtree, Chad Ochocinco
Sit: Braylon Edwards, Steve Smith (CAR) - though call me crazy, but I think Smith will surprise, Mohamed Massaquoi, DeSean Jackson

Start: Greg Olsen, Kellen Winslow
Sit: Jeremy Shockey, Dustin Keller

Start: Bengals
Sit: Saints

Start: Rian Lindell
Sit: no consensus

Sara, in our 96 team there going to be an alternate bracket set of games in Week 14, 15, 16, 17 for Owners of teams who did not win their Division?

My own team has just been eliminated mathematical this Week, because "Bookie" is going to win against "Planet 10". It's been fun yet one wildly up and down FF season in 2009. Thanks again,

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
