Week 17: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

For week 17, I decided to stray away from the rankings format, firstly because it’s extremely hard to rank one quarter of a star player against a full game against a second-stringer and, secondly, I feel that it’s more important to stress which players will be getting a huge boost in playing time and which […]

Week 16: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

As we gather ’round the Christmas tree, we must be grateful for the three F’s: Family, Friends, and Fantasy Football (Ok, so 4 F’s). At this point in time, we can think of Chris Johnson as the Red Ryder B.B. Gun of the season while someone like Matt Forte was just a big, disappointing lump of coal. […]

Week 15: Start’Em/Sit ‘Em

Last week, I did the 2009 All-Disappointment Team because in most of my leagues I did not make the playoffs due to a lot of players underachieving or getting injured. Call it a bitter article if you want, but this week I’m doing a complete 180 and am going to list the players who far […]

Week 14: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

It’s week 14 and in most league’s the playoffs will get underway when the Steelers and Browns kickoff tonight. Some fantasy owners will be glued to the TV to watch their fantasy players, some will be glued to watch the riveting matchup between the Steelers and Browns and some (like me) will be glued to […]

Week 13: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

How many times have you heard that it’s important to handcuff your star running backs? In the literal sense, you would think I was some whack job who you would never let around your kids, but I’m not talking about actually handcuffing an athlete. The term means picking up their backup so in the case […]

Week 12: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Ahhh Thanksgiving. One of my favorite days of the year. I am going to spare you the “What I am thankful for” introduction because, honestly, it’s a little cheesy. What I will do is list off the top five reasons why Thanksgiving is awesome. 1. Lots and lots of food. No other day of the […]

Week 11: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

There’s going to be a change to the Start/Sit this week. Before the riots start let me just say it involves more work for me and more information for you so this is a good thing. The reason? Well, now that the bye weeks are over you are going to be starting your main guys […]

Week 10: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Have you watched that new show on ABC called Flash Forward? For those who haven’t here’s a quick summary. The whole world blacked out for 137 seconds, during which, everyone saw a vision that took place six months in the future. I’m going to stop right there because that’s all I need for this introduction. […]

Week 9: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, Visanthe Shiancoe, Dustin Keller. What do these players all have in common? They are all on their byes this week. Why do you care? Well, you don’t really, but consider this – out of all the players on a […]

Week 8: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

I am frustrated. I mentioned last week how owners should get creative when dealing with their bye weeks. I shared with you how I coped with a tough Week 4 by making two trades that value-wise weren’t in my favor, but allowed me to upgrade my starting lineup – or so I thought. Let’s look […]

Week 7: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Week seven marks the first of three weeks where six teams will be on their bye week. In these next three weeks you will have to scramble to find replacements for your starters. Word of advice: don’t be afraid to get creative. The typical move would be to replace your player on a bye week […]

Week 6: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Breaking up is the hardest thing to do. I just pulled out that cliché because it holds true in both real life and fantasy football. Over the years, I have learned that you do not win fantasy football leagues by holding onto big names waiting for them to start producing for you. I have found […]

Would the Real Steve Smith Please Stand Up?

It’s pretty funny how much everyone overreacts to a couple weeks of football. For example, I’ve been hearing a lot of debate this week about which Steve Smith is the better play for the rest of the season. Is this a serious question? Steve Smith (NYG) has been great this year but I am here […]
