Who to start in Week 17? Aaron Rodgers or Alex Smith?

Posted by in NFL Week 17 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on January 4th, 2012 | 82 Comments


Week 17 feels like a bye week, it’s very weird. Normally this would be a no brainer, but should I start Aaron Rodgers or Alex Smith? Rodgers might rest quite a bit like he did last week, and at least Smith will play the whole game and it will be against the awful St. Louis Rams defense.

Also, what about Larry Fitzgerald. I know it’s “rest ’em” week, but I have a feeling he’ll get more playing time than is assumed. Or maybe I just need him to. Maybe I can “will” him to play. I’ve already had to sit Vincent Jackson and play Devin Aromashodu in his place, and my other options are Dwayne Bowe and Josh Morgan. Which is why I still have Fitzgerald in there. I’ve also had to sit Tony Gonzalez and sub with John Carlson. I’m assuming that Indy will sit their defensive starters, too, so I’m going to take a chance with Fred Jackson. Any advice on the QB and WR situations, though?

Who in the world would have a championship game in week 17 anyway? My other RB is Chris Johnson, so I’m good there.


I would probably go with Smith given the uncertainty of GB players resting. I would also go with Bowe for the same reason. I would rather take my chances with players that will play the whole game then get screwed because a team decides to rest their players.…

Week 16 – RB – Matt Forte or Fred Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 16 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 29th, 2011 | 235 Comments

Question: Which RB should I go with in week 16?

The Championship game is on the line! I have Jamaal Charles, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Fred Jackson, Matt Forte, LeGarrette Blount, and Tashard Choice.

Pick your best three.  I am definitely starting Jamaal Charles and likely LeGarrette Blount. Looking forward to your input.

Best answer:

I like your choice of going with Jamaal Charles and LeGarrette Blount. It’s between Matt Forte and Fred Jackson. I would go with Forte.

Week 7 – RB – Rashard Mendenhall, Tashard Choice, or Fred Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 7 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 21st, 2011 | 58 Comments

Who should I sit or start in week 7?

I’m in a 16 team league.

RB: Rashard Mendenhall, Tashard Choice, Fred Jackson – Pick 2

WR: Roy Williams or Johnny Knox


Jackson should be on the bench unless Lynch gets hurt. Start Rashard and Tashard.

I’d start Knox, because he’s scoring each week and the Bengal’s pass rush took a major with DE Odom out. Cutler should have plenty of time to pass with the Bengal’s best pass rusher out of the game.

Week 2 – Start/Sit – Peterson or Jones-Drew? Harvin or Holmes?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 18th, 2011 | 235 Comments

Question: I need help picking my RB and WR in Week 2?

Start 2 of:
Adrian Peterson
Maurice Jones-Drew
Beanie Wells
Fred Jackson
Ryan Grant
Pierre Thomas

Start 3 of:
Brandon Lloyd
Brandon Marshall
Percy Harvin
Santonio Holmes


Adrian Peterson – For obvious reasons.

Fred Jackson – He has a great matchup against Oakland and should put up big numbers. He looked great last week.

Out of the WR, I would sit Percey Harvin because I believe that Harvin isn’t able to put up consistent numbers yet.  The other three should be able to put up good numbers.  And this is coming from a Vikings fan!

Do not start Maucine Jones-Drew with Mercedes Lewis hurt along with the Jaguars other primary reciever. The Jets can just stack the box and shut down Jones-Drew. I would not be surprised if the Jets completely shut down the Jaguars.…

Week 1 – RB – Start or Sit – Felix Jones or Fred Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 8th, 2011 | 277 Comments

Question: Who should I start in Week 1?

Mark Sanchez vs. DAL or Kyle Orton vs. OAK?

Felix Jones vs. NYJ or Fred Jackson vs. KC?


Tough luck on your QB situation. How did you fail to draft a quality QB. You should be in luck week 1 with Kyle Orton vs. Oakland ince Oakland’s secondary is rather week.

Fred Jackson against KC is the choice there. Fred Jackson is the featured back and I like his ability to both run an receive. While Felix Jones has the same capabilities, he doesn’t have the featured role. Jones will be limited in his carries and the Jets are stellar against the run.

Go with Kyle Orton and Fred Jackson.

Week 2: Matt Forte or Leon Washington?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 18th, 2010 | 146 Comments

Question: Start/Sit question? Forte or Leon Washington?

Should I sit Matt Forte against Pittsburgh for Leon Washington who is facing New England?

I’m worried about Jay Cutler’s impact on Matt Forte’s stats and obviously the Steeler’s defense. I think Leon Washington could be huge this season, plus the Pats “revamped” defense (which just lost Richard Seymour and Jerod Mayo) already gave up a big fantasy game to Buffalo’s Fred Jackson. Am I getting “too cute” here?


Leon Washington is good and I like him too this year. But like you said, don’t get too cute. You probably got Matt Forte as your stud RB. Play him no matter what.

My concern with the Bears this year is that they’re getting away from what they should be. They’re a running team. Forte should be getting his carries. During the Sunday night game, it seemed like the Beers felt like since they got Cutler, they had to run the Broncos offense from last year. Denver ran that offense because they had strong WR’s. The Bears strength is their running game.

Week 5 – RB – Thomas Jones or Fred Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 9th, 2009 | 81 Comments

Question: Week 5 Start em or Sit em? Thomas Jones or Fred Jackson?

In week 5, should I start Fred Jackson vs. CLE, or Thomas Jones vs. MIA? Keep in mind that Miami has the 2nd best rush defense and Cleveland has the 31st worst rush defense. Both Jackson and Jones are splitting carries, so who should I start?


Go with Fred Jackson. Lynch is back in the mix but Jackson should produce this week against the Brown’s awful rushing defense. Thomas Jones has a tough task this week on the road against Miami’s run defense. Additionally, RB Shonn Greene is now part of the backfield rotation, which could take away more carries for Jones.

What do you think? Answer below!
