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

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.

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

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J.

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
