Ghouls? Goblins? Nope, it's Start/Sit, baby!

Happy Halloween, my fantasy fiends. I've got two little monsters ready to trick-or-treat tonight and the eldest is surely gunning for a bucket FULL of candy. I'm less high on the whole daylight savings thing since my boys are early risers as is. But at least it comes with a day full of football, right? Read on for guest writer Steve's take on start/sits this week as well as the consensus start/sit players. Enjoy!

First and foremost: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Halloween is easily my favorite holiday; I have loved it since I was a kid. Here’s hoping your Week 9 starts out with a great day/night, however you may be celebrating.

Time for some shameless self-promotion. Last week I wrote that the 3 big waiver wire RBs were nothing more than straw men to make you feel better about your underperforming team. Since I am HUGE on accountability (any fantasy site/writer that doesn’t show you whether they were wrong or not on a big claim should not be weighted the same as one that is transparent), let’s see how right I was. Hint: I won’t be buying you any drinks. I will still be buying them for myself, however.

Bryce Brown – 7 rushes for 15 rush yards, 3 targets, 0 receptions, 0 TDs, 1.5 points
Denard Robinson – 18 rushes for 108 yards, 2 targets, 1 reception for 10 yards, 0Tds, 10.8 points (12.8 PPR)
Tre Mason – 7 rushes for 32 yards, 1 target, 1 reception for 1 yard, 0 TDs, 3.3 points (4.3 PPR)

Like Meat Loaf said… 2 outta 3 ain’t bad. Robinson clearly got the volume, and made it work at 6 YPC, so I have to say he’s probably worth starting the next 2 weeks against the Bengals and Cowboys before his Week 11 bye. The other two… you’re bolder than me if you’re rolling with them in your lineups. Or more desperate.

BYES: Falcons, Bills, Bears, Lions, Packers, Titans. Whew. There’s going to be a lot of Frankenrosters out there this week (Halloween puns; we’re doin ‘em!). On to the linkage!

If you need advice on Kickers or D/ST, you obviously haven’t been paying attention to Bob’s posts. After last week’s showing, you might want to listen to what he has to say.

Happy Trick-or-Treating, Happy Daylight Savings Time, happy November, and Happy Week 9.

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
