Will Kirk Cousins have the game of his life against New Orleans in Week 10? Will Kirk Cousins have the game of his life against New Orleans in Week 10?

The biggest week of bye weeks is over and the final bye week is Week 11, so this is one of the final weeks where you don’t have to choose who to start/sit with bye week replacements. The matchups are the only decision maker going forward, but here are some options to start/sit based on bye weeks and matchups combined.

Start ‘Em

Kirk Cousins¬†(vs. New Orleans):¬†New Orleans’ secondary has given up ample yards all season and Cousins now has Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed to throw passes to. Expect big things in a high-scoring affair. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 10, 2015 »

Should Peyton Manning owners be worried this week?

Another week and another chance to improve on your fantasy team in Week 8. Sure, your team might be 3-4 or 4-3, but you still have a chance to be a Wild Card team if you play the right players going forward. Here are a few of my suggestions:

Start ‘Em

Jay Cutler (vs. Minnesota): The Vikings made Matthew Stafford look good last week and Cutler has a healthy Alshon Jeffrey to throw too. Expect at least three touchdown passes from the Chicago signal caller in this one. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 8, 2015 »

Is this the week Alfred Morris goes off? (Andrew Weber / USA TODAY Sports)

With the bye weeks taking away Aaron Rodgers, fantasy-bust Eddie Lacy and even noodle-arm Peyton Manning all on bye, it is time to make sure you have the potential sleepers in your lineup. Sure, there are several players who should be started every week, but here are some names to start/sit based on matchup or performance this season:

Start ‘Em

Cam Newton (vs. Philadelphia): After a stellar performance at Seattle, Newton comes into this Week7 matchup with the ability to find the open man downfield as well as run the ball whenever necessary. Expect another 30-point home performance as long as this game remains close. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 7, 2015 »

Will Carson Palmer be the best QB in Week 6? (Getty / Christian Petersen)

We are almost at the midway point for the playoff regular season and that means it is time for your team to figure out if it’s a playoff contender or pretender. It might be tough dealing with these bye weeks, but this is the time of year fantasy players are divided into the men and the boys of their fantasy leagues. Here are my suggestions this week:

Start ‘Em

Carson Palmer (vs. Pittsburgh): Palmer has really been one of the best QBs this season and the Arizona Cardinals have put up the most points in the NFL through five weeks. Expect maybe 3 TDs and possible 400+ yards through the air for the veteran this week. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 6, 2015 »

Is it time to rely on Philip Rivers to lead your fantasy team?

Week 5 is upon us which means the bye week is in full swing as four teams — including the 4-0 Carolina Panthers — are going to be off a week. So, without Adrian Peterson or Cam Newton, how will your team win? Well, here are some of my suggestions:

Start ‘Em

Philip Rivers (vs. Pittsburgh): The Steelers defense is strong against the run and Rivers will see plenty of opportunity to throw the ball. Expect 300+ yards and at least two scores this week in a high-scoring affair. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 5, 2015 »

Matthew Stafford might be in for a long night at Seattle (USATSI

It’s officially the first bye week, which means those without New England Patriots and the few Tennessee Titans players worth starting need to find some players to start in Week 4. Sure, most of these players are owned, but there could be a few surprises in the shallower leagues still out there on the waiver wire.

Here are some starts/sit for Week 4:

Start ‘Em

Cam Newton (vs. Tampa Bay): With 16 total touchdowns in six career games against the Buccaneers, Newton should be a go-to guy in Division matchups every single time this season. Sure, this is the second straight week Newton is a start, but you need to ride him while he is hot. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 4 »

Is it time to trust Cam newton again?

Two weeks off the table and the bye weeks are nearly upon us, but Week 3 is the final full week until later in the season. So, make sure to get all your superstars in there and make sure to bench players who have bad matchups before you have to play your bench players due to bye-week replacements. Here are some of my recommendations:

Start ‘Em

Cam Newton (vs. New Orleans): The Saints’ defense have the third-worst passer rating against QBs and Newton put up a huge game in Week 14 last year with three passing touchdowns and a rushing score. If you are planning to play Newton based on matchups, then this is one of those times to put him in your lineup. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 3 »
