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'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.

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

Start: Laurence Maroney, Beanie Wells, Jamaal Charles, Arian Foster, Knowshon Moreno
Sit: Rashard Mendenhall, Matt Forte, DeAngelo Williams, Ryan Grant

Start: Terrell Owens, Antonio Bryant, Anquan Boldin
Sit: Randy Moss, Roddy White, Steve Smith (CAR), Sidney Rice

Start: Fred Davis, Vernon Davis, Heath Miller
Sit: Kevin Boss, Brent Celek, Greg Olsen

Start: Texans, Broncos, Seahawks
Sit: Cowboys, 49ers

No consensus on any kickers this week

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?
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?


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

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
