Week 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 is a lot different than every other week in the fantasy season, and a big part of why a lot of people are against playing a week 17 championship. A lot of teams have nothing to play for this week. Whether they have locked up a playoff spot or they have no chance […]

Start or Sit Week 16

Start or Sit Week 16

Wow. Week 16. Time really flies. If I had to guess for a majority of you this is the championship, or at least week one of a two-week final. I know for weeks I have been saying trust the research, and I do think that is true, but there is something about championship week that […]

Week 15 Start or Sit

Week 15 Start or Sit

If you’re reading still, congrats on still being alive. Week 15 has a couple interesting storylines heading into the weekend. The cold and the bad quarterback situation. Weather in the Packers/Bears and Chiefs/Titans games are going to be below freezing. While cold isn’t typically a big deal, below freezing is a different story. If I […]

Start or Sit Week 14

Start or Sit Week 14

Week 14 marks the start of the fantasy playoffs for a lot of owners, meaning this week is do or die. I have mentioned it before and will say it again: don’t second guess something if it makes sense. Playoff time usually has a lot of second guessing because of the finality of it all. […]

Start or Sit Week 13

Start or Sit Week 13

For a lot of people this is the last chance to clinch a playoff spot or play in a meaningful fantasy football game. For some this could be the start of the fantasy playoffs. If you haven’t clinched or are in a “win and in” type situation, these are the start sit decisions you will […]

Start or Sit Week 12

Start or Sit Week 12

How good does it feel to be able to look at your full roster this week? No byes and only a handful of injuries expected to keep players out this Sunday. As good as it feels to have our full roster at our disposal, this is where the decisions get difficult. When you didn’t have […]

Start or Sit Week 11

Start or Sit Week 11

We have been there on a few occasions, but this is really when it starts to happen. The time where we are looking at our fantasy lineups and saying if you told me blank on draft day I would have thought you were nuts. Here are some of my “if you told me that on […]

Start or Sit Week 10

Start or Sit Week 10

This is where many teams start getting into do or die territory. High-end teams are looking to put themselves into a position for a bye or regular season winnings, while everyone with six or fewer wins is fighting for a playoff spot. Just because your team is 6-3 does not mean you are safe for […]

Start or Sit Week 9

Start or Sit Week 9

I hope if you’re reading this it is for the enjoyment, not because you are desperately searching for starting options. This isn’t just a six-team bye, it’s a six-team bye with a lot of good fantasy options missing. The Patriots, Cardinals, Texans, Bears, Redskins and Bengals are all off. Not only are those teams gone, […]

Start or Sit Week 8

Start or Sit Week 8

So how does your team look this week? Between byes, injuries, and just not a lot of great fantasy options there are going to be some ugly lineups put out there this week accompanied by some ugly final scores. Some of you will be completely depleted and need some home run plays. Guys with a […]

Start or Sit Week 7

Start or Sit Week 7

A lot of the time we get the new exciting players off the waiver wire and don’t know what to do with them. Do I immediately plug Jacquizz Rodgers into my lineup over Frank Gore? Cameron Meredith or DeAndre Hopkins? Sometimes these players deserve spots in the starting lineup immediately. Many times those are the […]

Start or Sit Week 6

Start or Sit Week 6

This week shouldn’t be a week where too many people are scrambling for replacements. Not many players got injured last week, and only Mike Evans, Stefon Diggs, and Jerick McKinnon are on bye. Sure Doug Martin is too, but his owners have been without him for a while already. Sometimes the difference between a playoff […]

Start or Sit Week 5

Start or Sit Week 5

The theme with a lot this week’s start or sit is about the matchups. One thing that needs to be kept in mind when you are looking at points against is how it happened. Just because the Falcons are giving up a lot of points to quarterbacks doesn’t mean the defense is bad; the same […]

Start or Sit Week 4

Start or Sit Week 4

The bye weeks are here, which means those great lineups you had in weeks one through three might be without some key players from now through the end of the fantasy season. Through three weeks all those high upside plays on your bench might look great for future potential, but do you have the confidence […]

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 […]
