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.

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

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

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)

Start: Owen Daniels, Brandon Pettigrew, Aaron Hernandez

Sit: Zach Miller, Scott Chandler, Chris Cooley

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

Start: David Akers, Alex Henery, Billy Cundiff
Sit: Rob Bironas

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. =)

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.

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.

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. Spiller, Beanie Wells, Ronnie Brown WR Start: Santana Moss, Legedu Naanee, Malcolm Floyd, Mike Williams (TB), Dez Bryant Sit: Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree TE Start: Chris Cooley, Todd Heap, John Carlson, Jermichael Finley Sit: Jermaine Gresham, Owen Daniels, Tony Scheffler, Jeremy Shockey, Bo Scaife Kicker Start: La

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
