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,

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.

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
