DeAngelo Williams

Week 1 – Flex – Sit or Start – Maurice Jones-Drew or Ronnie Brown?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 4th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: Which player should I start in my flex in week 1?

I’m in a standard league that has 3 flex spots.

Here are my players: Maurice Jones-Drew, DeAngelo Williams, Ronnie Brown, Kevin Smith, Kendall Wright, Robert Meachem.

I’ve pretty much  locked in DeAngelo Williams and Kevin Smith. I’m wondering who should start in the last spot.

Answer:

Expect MJD’s carries to be limited this week against the Vikings. The guy ended his holdout just a few days ago and may not even play. If he plays, I expect Rashad Jennings to get the majority of the work with MJD getting just a few carries. With MJD’s carries limited, I wouldn’t trust him in my starting roster.

I really like DeAngelo Williams this week. Tampa Bay’s defense ranked 32nd against the run last season and Jonathan Stewart is still recovering from a sprained ankle that he suffered in the preseason. DeAngelo Williams is going to have a monster game.

Kevin Smith is the other no brainer with Michael Leshoure suspended and Jahvid Best on the PUP. Kevin Smith will be getting all of the carries for the Lions against a Rams defense that is very poor against the run. I’m expecting a monster game from DeAngelo.

In the last spot, I am between Ronnie Brown and Robert Meachem. Check on the status of Ryan Matthews. He may have to sit week 1 out due to his broken collarbone. If Matthews is a scratch in week 1, Ronnie Brown is your man. If Ryan Matthews is set to start, I would take a shot on Robert Meachem and hope that he burns the Raiders with the deep ball from Philip Rivers. I need to see what Kendall Wright is all about …

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 – RB Start/Sit – Chris Johnson, DeAngelo Williams, or Shonn Greene?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 9th, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question: Which RBs should I start in week 1?

Chris Johnson @ JAX
DeAngelo Williams @ ARI
Shonn Greene @ DAL

I am leaning towards DeAngelo and Shonn Greene because I am not sure how many touches Chris Johnson will get in his first week back. Tennessee’s coach also said that Johnson will be limited in his first game back.

Best answer:

Why would Chris Johnson be limited? I would play him since Jacksonville’s defense if atrocious. In the second RB spot, I would go with DeAngelo Williams since Arizona has a poor run defense and the Cowboys run defense should be pretty solid this year. Bench Greene this week.

Week 7 – RB – Start or Sit – Matt Forte or DeAngelo Williams?

Posted by in NFL Week 7 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 20th, 2010 | Comment »

Question: Which 2 RBs sould I start in week 7?

Marshawn Lynch vs. ARZ
Matt Forte vs. WAS
DeAngelo Williams vs. SF

Pick two and tell me why.

Answer:

I would start Marshawn Lynch and Matt Forta and Bench DeAngelo Williams. The 49ers have a superb defense and Williams is splitting carries with Jonathan Stewart, so his fantasy potential this week is limited. Marshawn Lynch has a great matchup against Arizona who doesn’t have a great run defense. Although Matt Forte had a dud last week, he put up 30 points the week before. I see him as a better option than Williams this week.

Week 3 – RB/WR – Start or Sit – Pierre Thomas or DeAngelo Williams?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 21st, 2010 | 1 Comment

Question: I need some help setting my fantasy roster for week 3.

Who do i start at RB? Pick 1.

Pierre Thomas vs. ATL
Deangelo Williams vs. CIN

Who do i start at WR? Pick 2.

Austin Collie @ DEN
Demaryius Thomas vs. IND
Donald Driver @ CHI

Best answer:

With Reggie Bush out, Pierre Thomas should be getting all of the carries for the Saints. I’m not sold on Williams with him splitting carries with Stewart and not getting enough goal-line carries.

Demaryius Thomas had an amazing week 1 with 8 catches and 97 yards. This guy has WR1 potential and will soon be ranked among the likes of Hakeem Nicks and and Brandon Marshall.

Week 8 – RB – Start or Sit – DeAngelo Williams or Michael Turner?

Posted by in NFL Week 8 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 23rd, 2008 | Comment »

Question: I need some fantasy start/sit advice for week 8.

Which RB should I start in week 8?

DeAngelo Williams vs. ARI
Michael Turner vs. PHI

Maurice Jones-Drew is already in my starting lineup so I’m trying to decide who to put in my RB2.  I also have Reggie Bush, but he’s hurt.

Answer:

I would go with Michael Turner since he’s the featured back and a monster at the goal line. I don’t like the fact that DeAngelo Williams is splitting carries with Jonathan Stewart since you never know what to expect from him.

What do you think? Answer below!
