Consensus start/sit list, Week 12

Greetings and sorry for the late consensus start/sit post. Things got crazy here with Thanksgiving travel and our return home to an unwelcome surprise (more on that tomorrow), but better late than never! As a reminder, I've tallied up the players with the most start/sit votes from the start/sit links I posted earlier this week as well as a few others that I read this morning, and have listed those players below (in no particular order). Note that I've avoided listing any players that already played on Thanksgiving.

QB
Start: Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Cassel, Brett Favre
Sit: Jay Cutler, David Garrard

RB
Start: Brandon Jacobs, Mike Tolbert, Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles
Sit: Brandon Jackson, Beanie Wells, Marshawn Lynch, Fred Jackson

WR
Start: Mario Manningham, Nate Washington, Sidney Rice, Vincent Jackson, Steve Johnson
Sit: Johnny Knox, Randy Moss, Anquan Boldin, Hines Ward, Jeremy Maclin

TE
Start: Joel Dreessen, Heath Miller, Jacob Tamme, Kevin Boss
Sit: Kellen Winslow, Zach Miller, Marcedes Lewis

DST
Start: Browns, Raiders
Sit: Falcons

K
Start: Neil Rackers, Matt Prater
Sit: no consensus

Good luck and hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

You need some new people picking these. The last few weeks' picks have been terrible and not worthy of publication.

The game of fantasy football is chaotic and wildly unpredictable. The fact that half of these are right and half are wrong is about normal I'd say.

The bottom line is AND ALWAYS IS, use the experts as a guideline. If your gut is telling you something else, go with it. If you are simply setting your line-up according to the whims of others, well where is the fun in that?

You missed the point.
I wouldn't rely on others.
I pick my own.
But, these are so bad, monkees could do better throwing darts and get more correct.
The fact that this is a consensus sit/start list and there are more wrong than right is not normal. It's putrid.

You are like the Ephesians who cast out Hermodorus saying that none shall be greater than the rest.

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
