Week 5 Consensus Start/Sit

Greetings from early morning baby feeding land. My husband is passed out horizontally along the bed right now in what I'll call the I'm-awake-if-you-need-me stance of total new parent exhaustion. I'm adjusting to this cat nap lifestyle though, I think, and have been able to pull together this week's consensus start/sit list. As a reminder I use the expert start/sit links I posted yesterday to tally up the number of players with the most start or sit votes. Names are listed below in no particular order and are hopefully helpful in making some tough decisions this weekend.

Here are your Week 5 Consensus Start/Sits:

Start: Matt Ryan, Eli Manning, Sam Bradford, Joe Flacco
Sit: Donovan McNabb, Kyle Orton

Start: Jamaal Charles, Ryan Mathews (also a lot of votes for Tolbert instead), Fred Jackson
Sit: Marion Barber, Ray Rice, Cadillac Williams

Start: Hakeem Nicks, Donald Driver, Mark Clayton
Sit: Larry Fitzgerald, Malcolm Floyd

Start: Zach Miller, Marcedes Lewis
Sit: Tony Moeaki

Start: Bears, Falcons
Sit: Titans

Start: Carney, Buehler, Gould
Sit: no consensus

Not too much mention about R. Moss starting this week?

Ray Rice is killing me this year. I'm hoping he's a viable start this week (not that I have a choice).

I stayed home with our 1-month old today while the wife went shopping with her mom. I thought she was going to spontaneously combust if she didn't get out of the house.

J - Moss will be limited this week until he learns the terms the Vikes use. Sure, the passing tree isn't complicated, but he'll have to learn the nomenclature to be a full part of the Vikes' offense.

As for Rice - he'll come around. It hasn't been a huge year for consistent RB play except for Arian Foster. I have MJD and Chris Johnson, so I feel some of your pain with inconsistency.

OMG. I am so in awe of you pulling together a consensus for all of us with a teeny tiny absolutely adorable new kiddo. My son was born two years ago next week and my fantasy leagues tanked for the rest of the season. You are amazing! I hope you are getting a little bit of sleep.
wish me luck...i just benched Orton for Eli Manning based on this.

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'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 has their annual look at how the draft could go from each drafting position for fourteen
