Week 2 consensus start/sit

Here is your list of Week 2 consensus start/sit suggestions. For those new to this feature, each week I go through the start/sit articles that are linked here on the blog and tally up the number of start or sit votes that each player gets. Take a look at this list to help aid in some last minute lineup decisions - note that players are listed in no particular order.

QB
Start: Rex Grossman, Matt Schaub, Matthew Stafford, Ben Roethlisberger, Jay Cutler
Sit: Matt Cassel, Cam Newton (absolutely everyone wants you to sit Newton), Matt Ryan, Donovan McNabb

RB
Start: Peyton Hillis, Cedric Benson, James Starks
Sit: DeAngelo Williams, Mark Ingram, Marshawn Lynch, Maurice Jones-Drew, Chris Johnson, Knowshon Moreno

WR
Start: Santonio Holmes, Santana Moss, Mario Manningham, Robert Meachem
Sit: Chad Ochocinco, Mike Thomas, Dwayne Bowe, Steve Smith CAR (though he also had several "start" votes, so really take your pick; this one could really go either way)

TE
Start: Owen Daniels, Brandon Pettigrew, Aaron Hernandez

Sit: Zach Miller, Scott Chandler, Chris Cooley

DST
Start: Lions, Steelers, Bucs
Sit: Chargers, Falcons, Chiefs, Bears, 49ers

Why sit MJD and Dwanye Bowe?

Don't know why everyone is so down on Cam Newton. They should be playing from behind just like New Orleans. If they think he's so great, why not start him? I'd start him over Big Ben, Flacco, Bradford, Ryan, pretty much anyone not in the top 6-7 QBs.

This is an awesome feature. Thanks

This just goes to show how stubborn some people can be that they're willing to throw out all reason before they admit they were wrong. GB got exposed last week. Brees is good but that is still supposed to be an NFL defense. Cam Newton showed that he's for real or at least not the same QB Carolina had these past years. Put two and two together and you have another good week from the rookie QB. They need to stop hating on the guy.

Question... is it necessary to have kickers on there? Kickers are like roulette but it's possible that there is some correlation to a team being able to score and a kicker kicking the ball.

Beside that I feel you could probably spend your analysis time thinking about something else. =)

Thoughts?

I dont know: A kicker on a good offense with a good matchup is going to be a better bet than if he was facing a bad matchup. And that same kicker would get even better if he was playing in good weather. And he'd be better still if he was playing in a dome.
Glenn said…
Yeah, a kicker just seems like one of those things that are just part of the game. Like Individual Defensive Players in some leagues: you're not entirely sure how much one guy will do, but if the matchup is good for a good Defense against a weak offense, you gotta go for it.

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.
