Streaming Live Librarian

Happy Friday - and it truly is a happy day now that I've seen Reggie Wayne come back to life. I'll be meeting my opponent in the Buffalo Wild Wings league, Scott Engel, on live "tv" today - Scott joins up with ubatv to do a show called Fantasy Playbook every Friday afternoon. The show films in a studio in Manhattan so today I'll be heading over there to be a guest on Fantasy Playbook, which will also be streaming live if you don't have access to ubatv. Check it out from 2-3 today (or watch in from the archives if you're say gainfully employed and unable to watch a show at work) for discussion on Week 15 matchups. (Post show update: I mistakenly made a bunch of start/sit calls thinking that Pittsburgh is playing Chicago this week - my apologies! This is what happens to me at the end of a long season I suppose...) 

I've got a lot going on today, so I've got a slightly abbreviated post today. I should be back with the consensus start/sit by Saturday afternoon.

Top Fantasy Football's Start-Sit Rankings have a little something extra this week - the holiday adornments on this page are unreal - who knew you could make a start/sit column so festive.

Thanks chewhitey, had not picked up on that. Link is removed, my apologies.

Can you recommend a site where they give start/sit advice or even rankings for DEF/Special Teams?
Not IDP, just the whole Defense.

chewhitey, and all librarian readers was hacked around 11am - I removed the hack around 3pm

The hack tried to install a virus however unless you run some old version of IE should have been fine

I have taken steps to ensure this doesn't happen again.

FFLibrarian, yours is the only FF bookmark in my browser. Thanks for the good work. I have a pressing roster question, and I value your opinion.

I'm in a TD-heavy league (6 pts per TD, 1 pt per 20 yds rush/rec, no PPR). Through shrewd drafting and a blockbuster trade, I've ended up with Johnson, Rice, Benson, Moreno, and Wells as my RBs. I can play 3 of those 5 this week. Johnson is a no-brainer. I'm inclined toward Moreno, especially if Buckhalter's ailments keep him away from the ball. I don't know if I'm willing to gamble on Wells in the playoffs. So, essentially, I'm stuck between Rice and Benson. At the risk of sounding heartless, I wonder if there's any research out there on how teams fare, traditionally, in the wake of a team-wide tragedy. Part of me thinks they'll play with extra heart, but part of me fears that the distraction will be detrimental to performance. If anyone can pull out stats on this, you can!

Thanks for your good work!

You play Johnson, Wells and Rice and don't look back.

John, a good place to start is a site like Fantasy Football Nerd that uses as aggregate approach:

I'd go Johnson, Rice, and Moreno. I understand the Wells love but Moreno will get more carries than Wells with Buckhalter out - I know Hightower didn't have a ton of action last week but he's still around and certainly still a presence. I'd just feel more comfortable with Moreno.

Thanks for the feedback! I originally decided Johnson, Rice, and Moreno (and Campbell over Romo), and since benching Romo didn't blow up on me, I think I'll stick with my gut on the RB's, too.
