Stevie Johnson

Week 1 – Flex – Golden Tate or Stevie Johnson? Bernad or Ivory?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 7th, 2013 | Comment »

Should I start Golden Tate in Week 1?Question:

Standard League. Who  should I start at Flex? Pick only 1.

Chris Ivory, Gio Bernard, Golden Tate, or Stevie Johnson

Answer:

I would go Golden Tate. I expect the Panthers and Seahawks to exchange TDs in this game. I like this game going over 47 points. Tate should also be Seattle’s top receiver this year as he takes a big step forward this year.

After Tate, I would actually go with Stevie Johnson. Not because he could be a top-scorer, but because he’s just straight thug and running his mouth against the Patriots. I hope he has a big game to back up his talk because the Patriots deserve getting a beat down.

Giovanni Bernard will be splitting caries with BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Giovanni Bernard gets maybe 15 carries this game against a tough Bears defense. I want to see how he splits the load with BenJarvus Green-Ellis first.

I wouldn’t advise you to start any Jets player. Chris Ivory is behind Bilal Powell on the depth chart and the Jets should be one of the lowest-scoring offenses in the league.…

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 3 – WR – Start or Sit – Marques Colston or Lance Moore?

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

Question:

Should I start Lance Moore or Marques Colston in week 3.  My other active WR’s are A.J. Green, Mike Wallace, and at Flex Stevie Johnson in a PPR league.

Answer:

Marques Colston is listed as questionable with a foot injury, so you may want to put Lance Moore in the starting lineup. If you find out right before kickoff that Colston is going to be playing, then I would insert him in your lineup as he’s a more consistent producer compared to Moore.

Your other wide receivers and flex should do plenty of damage this week. A.J. Green @ WAS, Mike Wallace @ OAK, and Stevie Johnson @ CLE are all quality starts this week due to their favorable matchups and should put up big numbers this week.

Good luck!…

Week 15: Should I start an injured Adrian Peterson?

Posted by in NFL Week 15 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 12th, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: Should I start Adrian Peterson even though he is playing banged up?

Here is my current lineup:

QB: Eli Manning
RB: Marshawn Lynch
RB: Roy Helu
Flex: Shonn Greene
WR: Larry Fitzgerald
WR: Stevie Johnson
TE: Jimmy Graham
D: 49ers
K: Gostkowski

BENCH
Adrian Peterson
Antonio Gates
Jets D
James Jones
Laurent Robinson
Willis McGahee
Nate Washington

Should I put in Adrian Peterson? I feel like I should, but don’t know which player to take out. They are all projected to do well, and Peterson is only 85% according to ESPN. Your insight is appreciated.

Answer:

Definitely start Adrian Peterson instead of Roy Helu. He said he’s coming back this week for his “fantasy owners”. I expect AP to be AP. He should be his usual self this week even at 85% and it’s not like the Saints have a good run defense either.

Week 10 – Need Help Setting Fantasy Roster

Posted by in NFL Week 10 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on November 21st, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: I need tons of help making my week 10 fantasy football picks.

QB: Tim Tebow vs. KC or Matt Schaub vs. TB

RB: LeGarrette Blount vs. HOU or Beanie Wells vs. PHI

TE: Vernon Davis vs. NYG or Brandon Pettigrew vs. CHI

FLEX: Stevie Johnson vs. DAL or Willis McGahee vs. KC

Best answer:

I would go with Matt Schaub vs. TB since Tebow is too inconsistent. He has had some monster fantasy games, but also some fantasy busts. Tampa’s defense is not very good this year. Houston’s run defense has been strong, while Philly’s has given up a lot of yardage since they have huge question marks at the linbacking position. I think Beanie Wells will put up some great numbers. Vernon Davis is a no-brainer against the Giants. Pettigrew’s numbers are inconsistent. I would put McGahee in the flex. Since Moreno has some injury concerns, McGahee will be getting a lot of carries.

Week 10 – WR – Larry Fitzgerald or Stevie Johnson?

Posted by in NFL Week 10 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on November 15th, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: Which WR should I go with for week 10?

Larry Fitzgerald vs. SEA

Stevie Johnson vs. DET

Best answer:

I would sit Larry Fitzgerald. The QB situation in Arizona is too inconsistent, and playing Fitzgerald has become too risky. I would go with Stevie Johnson since Ryan Fitzpatrick has been throwing 40-45 passes a game and Stevie Johnson is his main target. He will tear apart the awful Lions pass defense. I say that Stevie puts up 100+ points.

Week 10 – Need Help Setting Roster

Posted by in NFL Week 10 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on November 15th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: I need help setting up my week 10 fantasy roster.

Here is my team.

QB – Pick 1
Matthew Stafford @ CHI
Tim Tebow @ KC

WR – Pick 2
Dez Bryant vs. BUF
Calvin Johnson @ CHI
Stevie Johnson @ DAL
Marques Colston @ ATL
Percy Harvin @ GB

RB – Pick 1
Michael Turner vs. NO
Adrian Peterson @ GB
Chris Johnson @ CAR

I allready had Antonio Gates the TE play he only produced 10 points for me I need to win this week any advice helps
Thanks.

Best answer:

How did you manage to draft all of those players? You must be in a league with 3 teams. You have Peterson, Chris Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Stevie Johnson, and Michael Turner? Impossible I say. It sucks you can only take 1 RB, but I would go with Adrian Peterson as Green Bay has had some inconsistencies against the run. At wide receiver, Calvin Johnson is the clear choice and I like Dez Bryant against that Buffalo defense.

What do you think? Answer below!
