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.
