Sunday and Monday Fantasy Football Starts, Sits, and Sleepers

Hello, I am Azane Massey, author of ZahiriSports blog. Today, I am going to be telling you who to start and sit so you can win your fantasy football matchup this week.

This week is very tough, six teams are on a bye week, so most of you guys are going to have to pick up players to play, or dig deep in to your bench to find players to play.

QB starts: Colin Kaepernick, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Tony Romo, Michael Vick, Matthew Stafford, RG3, and Peyton Manning and Peyton Manning. Everyone of these guys are very talented quarterbacks with a lot of good matchups and a lot of weapons. Expect all of these guys to have 20+ points this week

QB Start: For some of us who have quarterbacks on a bye week, or quarterbacks who are injured, look for someone on the waiver wire like Geno Smith to replace your starting QB. Geno Smith has a decent matchup this week against the Bengals defense. Look for Geno to have a decent game on the passing game and an alright running day too. Look for Geno to put up a solid 18-25 points this week

QB Sits: Thad Lewis, Eli Manning, Carson Palmer, Andy Dalton, Ryan Tannehill, Alex Smith, and Terrell Pryor. All of these quarterbacks have bad matchups and not a lot of weapons. Look at the waiver wire to find any other quarterbacks to start over these guys.

QB Sit of the Week Matt Ryan, he isn’t on this list a lot, but he has a bad matchup with two good weapons. Harry is going to be covered by Patrick Peterson the whole game, and Tony G is going to be either open or covered. He is going to be covered when he is playing against Daryl Washington, but will be wide open against Yerimiah Bell, he has been horrible against TE’s this year. So I would look for other options at QB.

RB Starts: Marshawn Lynch, Eddie Lacy, LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson, Le’veon Bell, Fred Jackson, Steven Jackson, Stevan Ridley, Reggie Bush, Giovani Benard, and Frank Gore. All of these backs are starting against bad defenses, in dynamic, high-flying offenses.

RB Sleeper: Andre Ellington. Andre Ellington is a high-end FLEX this week, he is the starting back, and is available in a lot of leagues, pick him up, and plug him in.

RB Sits: Chris Ivory, Benjarvus-Green-Ellis, Zac Stacy, Willis McGahee, Brandon Jacobs, and Bilal Powell.

RB Sit of the Week: LaMar Miller. LaMar Miller, even though a starter is playing against a tough defense. Look for other options at RB.

WR Starts: Dez Bryant, Calvin Johnson,, DeSean Jackson, Victor Cruz, Demariyus Thomas, and Pierre Garçon. All of these guys have good matchups.

WR Sleeper: Jarrett Boykin. Boykin is creating chemistry with Aaron Rodgers, and has a very good matchup against the Vikings.

WR Sits: Dwayne Bowe, Mike Wallace, Danny Amendola, Stevie Johnson, and Larry Fitzgerald.

WR Sit of the Week: Josh Gordon. This happens very few times but the has a very tough matchup. Look for other options.

TE Starts: Vernon Davis, Rob Gronkowski, and Heath Miller.

TE Sleeper: Jordan Reed. Reed is RG3’s second option against a horrible Denver defense. Start him.

TE Sits: Jordan Cameron, Brent Celek, and Brandon Pettigrew.

TE Sit of the Week: Kyle Rudolph. Rudolph is picking him up, but had Ponder at QB.

TNF Fantasy Football Sits, Starts and Sleepers

Hi, I am Azane Massey, author of ZahiriSports blog. Today, I will be telling you who to sit, and start for Thursday Night Football. The Panthers are going to be playing @ the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. There are not many starts that I would start in this game. But, if I had to, here is who I would start
The Passing Game: I wouldn’t start Mike Glennon. He is a rookie QB going against a very tough defense. Mike Williams has a hamstring injury, and hasn’t been able to produce. If VJax cannot get open, or isn’t catching passes, Mike Glennon’s only guy is Tim Wright. Tim Wright is a sleeper for me. Now, I know he had a bad week, but he might be the second option for Glennon tonight. When he had his first start in week 6, he caught 7 passes for 91 yards! Don’t be surprised if Wright has a big night. Cam Newton might not have the best passing night, but he will scorch the Bucs defense on the run game. Newton is hitting his stride right now. Newton will throw for 250 yards and 2 TD’s, and run for 85 yards and a TD. Newton is a high-end QB 1. I wouldn’t start Steve Smith. Even though, Smith is picking it up, he is going to be matched up against one of the best CB’s in the league, Darrele Revis. But I would start Brandon LaFell. Lafell has put up 17+ points in 2 of the last 3 games. LaFell is a high-end WR 3 this week.
The running game: Mike James is a sleeper for me. James is the RB filling in for the injured Doug Martin. James is a playing against one of the best run defenses in the league, but look for him to have a big impact on the passing game. DeAngelo Williams is a low-end flex play against a good rushing defense. Williams has been very inconsistent this year. If you have other options like Andre Ellington, I’d start him over Williams.
Defense: The Panthers defense is becoming a must start this year. Their front seven has been incredible this season. Which leads to good pass defense. I would absolutely start this defense this week. The Bucs defense is different. Their defense is playing average. Revis hasn’t been up to form, along with the rest of the Bucs secondary. Their defense is a shaky start this week against the Panthers high flying offense.

Let me know your thoughts in the comment section, tell me if any of my predictions helped you!!!! FOOTBALL RULES!

Should the Browns trade Josh Gordon?

Hi, I am Azane Massey the author of ZahiriSports blog. Today, I’m going to be talking about why the Browns should, and shouldn’t trade Josh Gordon. Obviously, Josh Gordon has been getting a ton of buzz lately, especially regarding trade talks. The Browns GM Michael Lombardi is looking to trade away players to get young, good talent in the 2014 NFL draft. He has already traded away Trent Richardson to the Colts for a 1st round pick ( Actually, a great deal). But, know he is looking to trade yet another young, talented asset. Josh Gordon, Gordon is a young, fast, big, and strong WR. In the 5 weeks that Josh has played he has had very good numbers. Josh Gordon has caught, 27 balls for 450 yards, and 2 touchdowns!!! This is very good for a guy who has no talent around him on the offensive side of the ball. Gordon has off-the field issues, but, can still play at a very high level. Gordon had a down week because, their quarterback Brandon Weeden, throws worse than JaMarcuss Russell. I have no idea why the Browns are not putting in Jason Campbell. Gordon will likely go to the Falcons, Lions, or 49ers, for a second round pick. The Browns would be in a good position if they get a second round pick. They can get Johnny Manziel in the first round, quarterback out of Texas a&m, and trade their other 1st rounder, with a third rounder, to move up in the draft, and pick up WR out of USC, Marqisse Lee. Then, with their second rounder, draft a RB like Bobby Rainey out of Washington. And then with their other second rounder ( If they trade Gordon), draft another talented WR. The Browns have a lot of options. Let me know your thoughts on my first article!!!! And make sure to check out my fantasy football sits and starts later in the week!!!!
