Consensus Start/Sit Week 1 - 2010 season

Greetings, FFers. I've been spending this September 11th basking in the greatness of football, really. Started off the day with a quick interview with the FantasyPros911 guys on their SIRIUSXM show, and have been enjoying college football since then. I've got my Week 1 consensus start/sit list for you below but first I wanted to update you on the winner of the Buffalo Wild Wings lawn chair contest. There were 85 guesses submitted for the number of combined rushing yards that Pierre Thomas and Adrian Peterson would put up on Thursday night, and the total between the two was 158 yards (87 yards for Peterson, 71 yards for Thomas). Two sage readers guessed 157 yards so I drew a name from a hat and UMGrrl won the big lawn chair prize - congrats, UMGrrl! Don't worry I sent a koozie, a small token of BWW tailgating goodness, to the runner up, Scott, as well. While I don't have any more lawn chairs to give away, I do have more koozies so keep your eyes open for more of these contests in the future. Who doesn't want to keep their beer or other beverage of their choice frosty cold on Sundays?!

So onto the consensus start/sit. For those who are new to the blog this season, keep in mind that the consensus start/sit is not my own list on who to start or sit, but instead is a tally of all these great links you've read throughout the week. I go through each of these start/sit sites and record which players got the most votes as a start or sit. It's basically a consensus from the experts on which players you should start or sit, outside of the obvious studs and duds...with the caveat that you should always take into account your own team makeup and scoring system when making these decisions.

The following players are listed in no particular order:

QB
Start: Jay Cutler, Kyle Orton, Kevin Kolb
Sit: Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan, Donovan McNabb

RB
Start: Ronnie Brown, Jerome Harrison, Ryan Mathews, Arian Foster, Matt Forte
Sit: Shonn Greene, Justin Forsett, LeSean McCoy

WR
Start: Malcolm Floyd, Jabar Gaffney, Johnny Knox
Sit: Anquan Boldin, Mike Sims-Walker, Braylon Edwards, Hines Ward

TE
Start: Heath Miller, Zach Miller, Kellen Winslow
Sit: Owen Daniels, Todd Heap, John Carlson

Kickers
Start: Rob Bironas, Nate Kaeding, Robbie Gould, Neil Rackers, Jay Feely
Sit: no consensus

D/ST
Start: Titans, Cardinals, 49ers
Sit: Bengals, Eagles

Could you see Ray Rice getting 19 fantasy points in a ESPN standard league tomorrow?

Well, the advice on Kolb didn't work, but I still won (Austin, Chris Johnson, Roddy White saved me). Should have started Flacco anyway. Thanks for the awesome site.

And as for Rice: YES. The Jets will shut down the long passing game. Rice will get a lot of carries and a lot of dump-off passes. He'll go 20+.
