Week 3 – Flex – Start or Sit – Peyton Hillis, Mark Ingram, or Michael Crabtree?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Should I start or sit Peyton Hillis in week 3 @ New Orlenas? This is for my flex and my other options are Mark Ingram vs. KC or Michael Crabtree @ MIN.

Answer:

Peyton Hillis has been a disappointment for fantasy owner who likely spent a mid-round pick on him when a quality WR could have been taken such as Mike Wallace or Stevie Johnson.

The good news for Peyton Hillis this week is the Saints defense. They’ve given up the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs through two games this season. Jamaal Charles also tweaked his inured knee last week against the Bills. Although Charles should play this week (he’s listed as probable), the injury gives the Chiefs staff more reasons to decrease his workload while giving Hillis more carries.

Hillis saw 7 carries in week 1 and 11 carries last week. Hills may see as many as 15 carries this week. Although Hillis in week 1 was a bust against the Falcons, Hillis had a much better game in week 2 against the Bills picking up 66 yards on 11 carries and hauling in 3 receptions for 25 yards. A 6.0 YPC and 12.5 YPR average make fantasy owners happy, but he just needs to get more touches and he should have that opportunity against the Saints this week.

I don’t trust Ingram in my starting lineup since his fantasy numbers are always contingent on whether he gets any goalline opportunities for the Saints. Without the goalline opportunities, he won’t put up any big numbers and his statline may come in at 15 carries for 60 yards on a good day. Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles also put a big dent in his touches.

Michael Crabtree …

Week 7 – RB – Start or Sit – Darren Sproles or Ryan Torain?

Posted by in NFL Week 7 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 18th, 2011 | 8 Comments

Question: I got off to a terrible start going 1-5 and really need a win. Which RB should I start in week 7?

Darren Sproles or Ryan Torain?

Sproles is having a great year and has been consistent. Ryan Torain is capable of having a huge game, but you can’t trust Shanahan. All help is appreciated.

Answer:

Sproles will be your best option here. You know what you’re going to get when he touches the ball where Torain remains an uncertainty as you never know which back will get the bulk of carries any given Sunday. I would start Darren Sproles.

Week 2 – RB – Darren Sproles or DeAngelo Williams?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 16th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question

I am in a non PRR league. I have Carnell Williams (will start for the injured Steven Jackson), Darren Sproles, and DeAngelo Williams. Which RB should I start this week in week 2?

Answer

Carnell Williams. With jackson out, you know he’s going to get a lot of carries for the Rams. Bradford also has an injured hand so the Rams should be running the football a lot this weekend. Ingraham is getting the bulk of the carries for the Saints so it’s unknown how many touches Sproles can get, but he’s always due for fantasy upside.

Week 1 – Start/Sit – Felix Jones or Darren Sproles?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 10th, 2009 | 1 Comment

Question: Which player should I put in the flex for week 1?

Since Marshawn Lynch is suspended the first three games of the season, I moved Ray Ricce from my FLEX to my RB2. Now I need to decide who to start in the FLEX. Do I go with Felix Jones (vs. TB) or Darren Sproles (vs. OAK). Thanks for your help.

Answer:

You have to go with Felix Jones in the FLEX. It’s not even a question. With his speed, he has the ability to pick up huge chunks of yards and will have a huge role in the Cowboys offense. While Darren Sproles also has the same home run capabilities, Jones should be getting more touches for the Cowboys than Sproles should be getting with the Chargers.
