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

Your awesome. I love what you do. There are a lot of opinions out there but pulling it together makes you worth more than any of the others!

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+.

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
