Consensus Start/Sit for Week 15

Greetings from a so far unsnowy NYC. However I just talked to my mom who is pretty much blanketed in a winter wonderland down in my hometown of Arlington, VA. In a few hours I'll be headed to the Duke vs Gonzaga game here in New York and I'm expecting to be tromping through snow on the way home...snow is just so much more fun when you don't have a car or any driving to worry about. Yea subway.

Meanwhile, there's football on tonight, baby! Love the Saturday night game action and I've got a few links to get you prepared - plus this week's consensus start/sit.
  • First up, the weekly Five Game Parlay that I do with Fighting Chance Fantasy - sadly I'm still trailing in that competition but I've had a few good weeks lately and think I can at least make a little more progress before the season ends.
  • This week's roundtable is up on Fantasy Phenoms with some of the sharpest minds letting us know which players are sleepers and busts this week.
  • A little start/sit advice from Fantasy Depth Chart that's specific to tonight's matchup between the Saints and Cowboys. 
  • Scope out Pyromaniac.com's Week 15 Positional Rankings with the top 12 QBs, 24 RBs, 30 WRs, and 12 TEs for this weekend's games.
Now onto the consensus start/sit for the week - I go through all of the expert start/sit links that I provide during the week and tally up which players have the most votes. They're listed below in no particular order - and always keep in mind that these suggestions don't work for all rosters; I say always play your best talent.

QB
Start: Jason Campbell, Kurt Warner, Matt Schaub
Sit: Ben Roethlisberger, Carson Palmer, Tom Brady

RB
Start: Laurence Maroney, Beanie Wells, Jamaal Charles, Arian Foster, Knowshon Moreno

Need some flex advice in a non-ppr league: Arian Foster, Justin Forsett, or Steve Smith NYG. Forsett is in line for a decent number of touches, Smith is the steadiest of the three, but Foster plays the Rams. Any sage words?
Parker,
It's between Forsett and Smith for me. I think RBs are far more consistent so I'm inclined to go with Forsett (especially since I think he's awesome and hopefully Seattle will realize that soon, too). And the fact that NYG is facing Washington makes me think that Forsett is really the best start here. Good luck!

I have Roddy White starting, do i bench him for chris jennings or greg olson?

THANKS!!

Randall - the Revis situation makes me way too shy to start White. I'd go with Jennings, your best shot at some points this week. Good luck!

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

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy! Rankings: Athlon's 2015 Quarterback Rankings (other positions available here ) RotoBaller's Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Top 200   Rotoworld's Silva's August Top 200  DavidGonos.com's Fantasy Football 2015 Tight Ends: Top 30 TEs Meanwhile, for a little draft strategy, scope out The Fantasy Fix's 12-Team Standard League Flow Chart - kind of a fascinating little nugget here. He outlines which position(s) you might want to target for each round via flow chart, and then skip down below for commentary on particular players that you might want to target.  Or CBSSports.com has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
