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!

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
