Week 10's Consensus Start/Sit

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.
Time for the consensus picks - I've gone through all of this week's start/sit links from experts and tallied up those players with the most start/sit votes.
Start: Ben Roethlisberger, Mark Sanchez, Matt Hasselbeck, Brett Favre
Sit: Kyle Orton, Carson Palmer, David Garrard, Donovan McNabb

Start: Ricky Williams, Ronnie Brown, Jamaal Charles, Pierre Thomas
Sit: Julius Jones, Kevin Smith, LaDainian Tomlinson

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?
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!!!

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

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.

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
