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:

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

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

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

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

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

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+.

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

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
