If you're new to the consensus start/sit list I do, just a reminder that it's basically a tally of all the start/sit votes that players get in the various start/sit articles that I link to throughout the week. The players are listed in no particular order and should always be considered in the context of your individual team and options. Good luck this week!

I gotta start Eli or Matt Ryan this week and they both are recommended sits.....I think I will start Ryan as he might have to throw more to keep up with the saints.

I'm sitting Flacco in favor of Kyle Orton this week. Flacco has a lot to prove right now. I don't buy him as a matchup play. I think Rice and McGahee score all the points. Flacco goes for 220 yds and 1 INT.

Hope this helps in time Mike..

last game Ryan vs. NO
QBR 46.6
Completions 19
Attemps 42
Comp % 45.2
Yards 289
Y/A 6.9
TD 1
INT 3

Titans rank #1 against the pass but they've only played the Raiders (QB benched) and Steelers (Dixon & Batch)

Eli has 5 TDs this season, 18 TDs in last 9 home games

I say play Eli

Hilarious how everyone is singing the praises of the Titans pass defense. They've faced Campbell and Dixon/Batch. I'm not even sure if they could be classified as average.

Hey Anonymous,

The point was that they're only number one because of who they've played. If you had read my post properly and/or completely you would realize that I'm telling Mike from WI that I would not start Matt Ryan. Instead start Eli against the Titans.

Takes a strong person to hate on a comment coming from "Anonymous"

BTW, how'd you do on the reading comp portion of the SAT?

Mike from WI said...

Thanks for the info David. I think I will give Eli the start today. Being at home and wanting to improve on last weeks performance.

Down by 9 points. What are my chances of winning?- have both Driver and Finley playing tonight. Thanks

Anon - my standard CBS league has Finley pegged for 11 points tonight and Driver for 10, and both have been successful so far this year (Chicago has been TE-friendly - and Driver has had TDs in Weeks 1 and 2), so here's hoping you're all set for a W tonight. Only one way to find out...enjoy the game!
