Consensus Start/Sit - Week 9

Before we get to the consensus start/sit picks for Week 9, a quick glimpse at a few gems out there:
  • My buddies at FFGeekBlog are offering up a $50 gift card to if you can guess the top fantasy QB this week. Check out their site for more details.
  • The Hazean takes an interesting look at the top 12 fantasy players at each position now that we're at the midpoint of the NFL season.
  • Scope out Roger Rotter's Top 10 sleepers for Week 9 - I'm seeing Hasselbeck and Crabtree all over the start lists this week.
  • Always a good read, take a look at FFToday's Inside the Matchup for some hints on what to expect from the running and passing games from a fantasy standpoint. 
Okay, consensus time. Keep in mind that I've gone through all of the sites that I link to with start/sit advice during the week and have tallied up those players with the most start/sit votes, or the most consensus from the experts. So here they are, listed at random:

Start: Matt Hasselbeck, David Garrard, Joe Flacco, Alex Smith
Sit: Matt Ryan, Eli Manning, Kyle Orton, Chad Henne

Start: Ryan Grant, Jamaal Charles, Brandon Jacobs, Julius Jones, Joseph Addai
Sit: Knowshon Moreno, Ryan Moats, Cadillac Williams
Start: Dwayne Bowe, Mike Sims-Walker, Michael Crabtree, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Santana Moss
Sit: Steve Smith (NYG), Roy Williams, Santonio Holmes, Antonio Bryant

Start: Fred Davis, Vernon Davis, Jason Witten
Sit: Greg Olsen, Heath Miller

Start: Lawrence Tynes, Mason Crosby, Olindo Mare
Sit: no consensus

Start: Saints, Patriots
Sit: Bears


Thanks for the mention of our contest!

A little free advice if you please -- choose two from the following list:

Brian Hartline - Pats in NE. Not a great setting for mega FF points.
Santonio Holmes - My leading receiver, but fading fast and your Broncos don't give up the long ball easily. Several sites advise sitting him this week -- but they don't know my roster !!
T.J. Hous. - Good match-up with the Lions - but is Nate Burleson now the go to receiver ?
Josh Morgan - has Crabtree completely taken all his receptions ?

It will probably be a moot point anyway since a certain running back in purple has a bye this week.

Thanks for the help.

Start Housh. He's by far your best option this week and he should have a nice game.

To everyone else, I am going nuts this week with everyone saying "Bench Matt Ryan". I can't wait to see this guy tear it up against the lowly Redskins. He's going to have his best game of the year! Start Matt Ryan with confidence this week!
I'm with Chad O on this one - go with Housh against Detroit's 24th ranked pass (which doesn't even accurately represent just how many fantasy points they give up to WRs) and then I'd start Holmes. I know, I know, he's up against my Broncos but relative to your other options I think he has the most skill and might be able to make things happen. Or at least do more than Hartline and Morgan could...

Good luck!

And Chad O, I hear you on the Matt Ryan front - no love for him from the experts at all. I think it depends on your options but I'm starting Ryan without any fear of a bad game this week. The Skins pass defense is surprisingly solid and they really aren't giving up a ton of fantasy points to opposing QBs, but I wouldn't go crazy and bench Ryan unless you're pretty confident in your other option.

Love your problem this week is I have to start either Housh or Crabtree (my #1 is DeSean Jackson). How do you settle that one????

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
