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 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.

Posted by in NFL Week 7 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 17th, 2009 | 1 Comment

Question: Week 7 RB advice?

Who should I start, Matt Forte or Jonathan Stewart? Stewart is playing Buffalo and Forte is playing the Bengals.

Best answer:

I would go with Stewart. He’s got a favorable matchup and should look good against the Bills defense this week.

Week 1 – RB – Start or Sit – Jonathan Stewart or Maurice Jones-Drew?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 11th, 2009 | 5 Comments

Question: Which RB do I start or sit in week 1?

Here are my RBs:

Ray Rice vs. KC
Jonathan Stewart vs. PHI
Maurice Jones-Drew vs.  IND
Steve Slaton vs. NYJ

I need to pick two. I was also proposed a trade of Jonathan Stewart and Steve Slaton for Andre Johnson and Ryan Grant. Do you think I should take it?

Answer:

Ray Rice against Kansas City is a sure-fire bet, he’s your starter every week. You also have to go with Maurice Jones-Drew against Indy who is also soft against the run. You have to play your best players. Rice and MJD should be your starters every week regardinless of your matchup. Very nice group or RBs.

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!
