Just finished up a little Skype session with a really good friend and her 3-month-old baby - seriously, God bless the creators of Skype, it's awesome. So I've got a few more start/sit links for you before I get to the consensus start/sit list for Week 10.

Would you bench Roddy White or Miles Austin in favor of Sidney Rice or Derrick Mason?

I'd bench White in favor of Mason; and would seriously consider benching Austin in favor of Mason. But I wouldn't plug an up-and-down Rice in for either of them. White will probably do what he did last time they played the Falcons (50-60 yards and 1 TD), which is fine, but Mason will probably also do what he did against the Browns last time (100+ yards and 1 TD), so I'd rather have Mason.

Austin has a nice matchup against the Packers this week that I personally think makes him a better start than Rice.

Good luck!

Just doing you a favor on this:

How is Chris Johnson not listed as one of your "favorites"?

NFL's leading rusher vs. #32 rushing defense.

Just sayin'.

Chris Johnson is a week in and week out starter. It shouldn't have to be said that he should start against the 32nd ranked rush defense.

So last week McNabb was a must start but flopped and this week he's a bench so he'll do well? cuz that's how it works right? this game can drive you crazy.

In other news I need to start either sims-walker, maclin or collie at WR2 and think I might just play paper rock scissors against myself to decide. Yeah, Sims-Walker will get shut down by Reevis and Garrard has not thrown a TD during an away game... but that means he's due right? I'll probably go with Maclin...

By the way.
I love your site!

Anons - remember this start/sit list is a consensus of the experts' opinions. Not many of them put the obvious names on their lists, and as one of you suggested, Chris Johnson is a no brainer. Hence why he's not on the list.

Roc's Dad - this comes down to Maclin or Collie for me, and I think it's a total crapshoot between the two. If you're feeling Maclin, go for it. Maclin faces a fairly decent SD secondary but we all know the Colts/Pats history and Collie has been rather quiet lately. I think both will be good for 50-60 yards and you can cross your fingers in hopes of a TD. Good luck!

Here's a question: start Kevin Smith, who is guaranteed some carries, against the MIN D or Beanie Wells, who might carry only one time, against a suspect Seattle D?

Betts or Cadillac?

Fantasy Football Librarian said...

Anon - Good question. I'm going to base my choice on what each runner did against their opponent earlier in the season since I don't think a ton has changed for either situation. Smith had 24 carries for 83 yards and 2 receptions for 10 yards against Minn, while Wells had 12 carries for 29 yards and 1 reception for 7 yards against Seattle. Go with Smith.

Dave - I like Caddy better - both are facing tough run defenses, both are part of a committee approach, but Betts isn't 100% healthy. That's enough to tip the scales in Caddy's favor.

Donovan McNabb is driving me insane. I play him, he's awful - I bench him, he's off the hook. I almost played him this week thinking "Everyone says bench him - a sure sign he'll do well!" - but then decided to do the "smart" thing and sit him for Flacco. GAH!!!
