Consensus start/sit Week 3

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!

Sit: Mark Sanchez, Josh Freeman, Matt Ryan, Eli Manning

Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Pierre Thomas, Tim Hightower
Sit: Brandon Jackson, Jerome Harrison, Cadillac Williams, Jamal Charles, Ronnie Brown

Start: Santana Moss, Mark Clayton, Malcolm Floyd
Sit: Steve Smith (CAR - though NYG was also not beloved this week), Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe

Start: Chris Cooley, Visanthe Shiancoe, Dustin Keller, Mercedes Lewis
Sit: Greg Olsen, Kellen Winslow, Todd Heap

Start: Lawrence Tynes, Neil Rackers

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

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!

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

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

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
