Start or Sit Week 3

Start or Sit Week 3

See, I told you last week wasn’t going to be as good as week one. I was all over the Saints and Giants and it turned out to be wrong for the most part – Rashad Jennings “ouch”.  That will happen from time to time. Defenses no one expects to show up, show up, and […]

Start or Sit Week 2

Start or Sit Week 2

Let’s just get this out of the way early: Last week was a great week for my picks. Some of them were obvious – some weren’t. There is good and bad news that comes with that. The good: odds are you are back because those picks hit. The bad: trust me, they aren’t going to […]

Start or Sit: Week 1

Start or Sit: Week 1

It’s finally here. Just like any sport, the beginning of the season brings hope to everyone. Even the teams that drafted poorly have a chance by hitting the waiver wire or the trade market. This year the start sit article is coming with some extra fun. This year there will be players featured in a […]

Start and Sit: Week 17

Start and Sit: Week 17

Week 17 is different than a lot of weeks because many teams have nothing to play for. Typically the teams that are out of the race will still play their players, but for teams like the Redskins there is no reason to play anyone. For the people who are still playing, this is it for […]

Start and Sit: Week 16

Start and Sit: Week 16

This is the week you have been waiting for since August.  If you are fortunate enough to still be playing for something congratulations. Enjoy this week because, if this is indeed your championship week, this will be your last taste of season long fantasy football for about eight months. There will still be a start […]

Start and Sit: Week 15

Start and Sit: Week 15

For the length of the season, the best team (more often than not) ends up at, or near, the top of the league.  In the playoffs, once you get past the rounds where teams have a bye, the best team doesn’t matter.  Last week someone somewhere could have realistically started the following lineup. QB Ben […]

Start and Sit: Week 14

Start and Sit: Week 14

“Dance with the ones who brought you.” This is something a lot of fantasy people will say this time of the year. I both agree and disagree with this statement. The basis behind the statement is to start your studs or the guys who were a big part of why you are in the playoffs. […]

Start and Sit Week 13

Start and Sit Week 13

For a lot of owners the final week of the regular season is essentially the playoffs; win and in; lose and all hope of winning a championship is over. The worst part about this week is, if you lose, you will remember the wrong decisions that you made and will have all off-season to think […]

Start and Sit Week 12

Start and Sit Week 12

I hope everyone out there had a happy Thanksgiving, and I hope that you didn’t have to play against Calvin Johnson and Matt Stafford even more.  Staring at a big deficit after a Thursday night, or a crappy performance a la Dez Bryant can make some owners panic. Those performances could cost you a win […]

Thanksgiving Day Start and Sit

Thanksgiving Day Start and Sit

Say bye to the bye weeks. From here on out everyone is available to be started.  Because Week 12 is different than every other week (three Thursday games), I am going to do an early start sit column for the guys playing on Thanksgiving. If you are wondering where the regularly scheduled buy low sell […]

Start and Sit Week 11

Start and Sit Week 11

It is the last time this season we will have to deal with the dreaded bye week. I would assume if you are no longer in your playoff race that you probably aren’t reading this, but if you are out of the playoffs or essentially eliminated, don’t give up.  Be the team that plays spoiler […]

Start and Sit Week 10

Start and Sit Week 10

We are getting down to the nitty-gritty for the fantasy football regular season. Just like with the NFL, every decision gets bigger and bigger in determining how the fantasy season will go. Start the wrong player and a three-point differential could be the difference between playing for a championship or playing in the consolation bracket. […]

Start and Sit Week 9

Start and Sit Week 9

It is a tough week for fantasy owners. A lot of injuries and a lot of players missing with a bye are going to lead to some pretty ugly fantasy scores. This week brings to the table the question a lot of people have on draft day. Should you pay attention to bye weeks and […]

Start and Sit Week 8

Start and Sit Week 8

This week the bye week is relatively light, and I am sure fantasy owners are fine with that.  The biggest names owners will be missing this week, in terms of year to date performance, are all Jaguars.  While it is a good thing that many owners have the majority of their roster available to them […]

Start and Sit Week 7

Start and Sit Week 7

The bye weeks are here in full force for week seven. Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb, James Jones, Eddie Lacy, Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, Giovani Bernard, Jeremy Hill, Tyler Eifert, Matt Forte, and Alson Jeffery (that was longer than I expected) are all missing this week because of bye weeks. Heck even […]

Start and Sit Week 6

Start and Sit Week 6

It is here. We are pretty much at the halfway point in the regular season for fantasy football. Many of the hours we spent looking at player X against player Y during the summer are now meaningless. With five weeks in the books we can no longer look at what we expected when we researched […]

Start and Sit Week 5

Start and Sit Week 5

It looks like I am starting to get the hang of this whole start and sit thing. Last week I went 15-8-5 in my picks which has me hovering right around 50 percent on the season. I said I wanted to get 75 percent of the games that might have been a little wishful thinking. I […]

Start and Sit Week 4

Start and Sit Week 4

Two weeks of making picks in the books and the results are getting better although they aren’t where I would like them to be yet. The big standout from last week was recommending Devonta Freeman as a start, while recommending that you sit Matt Ryan maybe wasn’t the best idea. Week four is a big […]

Start and Sit Week 3

Start and Sit Week 3

To say the least, my first week doing the start/sit column didn’t go well; that might even be giving me more credit than I deserved. I am not going to get every call right and I am not expecting to do that. The goal for me every week is to get about 70 percent of […]

Start and Sit Week 2

People always say week 1 is the hardest week to predict because there is so much unknown.  Is week 2 any easier?  Do we really know more based on one weeks worth of results? Football is a week-to-week game, just as baseball is a day-to-day game, and just because someone has a huge game one […]
