Vincent Jackson

Week 4 – Start or Sit – Willis McGahee or Cedric Benson?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 29th, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I have the following players and am struggling to decide who to start and who to sit.

Vincent Jackson vs. WAS
Eric Decker vs. OAK
Steve Smith @ ATL
Willis McGahee vs. OAK
Cedric Benson vs. NO

I have Jackson/Decker/Benson starting for week 4 but wondering if I should make a change. Thanks!

Answer:

You have some great matchups to work with. I would go with Vincent Jackson and Eric Decker as my starting WRs since they are facing two poor defenses. Decker should have his first monster fantasy game of the season. Big Ben threw for over 300 yards on the Raiders last week since the Raiders corners are banged up. Peyton Manning will pick them apart.

If you’re deciding between Benson and McGahee at RB, I say you go Benson. McGahee has some banged up ribs and is listed as questionable so he may sit this game out or take limited snaps. Green Bay was feeding Benson the ball last week and that should continue as they’re facing the Saints, who have the worst run defense in the league and gave up over 200 yards to Jamaal Charles last week.

You got it right. Vincent Jackson, Eric Decker, and Cedric Benson are your guys for week 4.…

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 | 2 Comments

Question:

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.

Answer:

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 4 Sit/Start Question?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 27th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: Who do I play in week 4?

RB: (Start 1-2): Pierre Thomas vs. NYJ, Ray Rice @ NE, Glen Coffee vs. STL

WR: (Start 3-4): Reggie Wayne vs. SEA, Chad Johnson @ CLE , Donald Driver @ MIN, Vincent Jackson @ PIT

I was thinking I will start:

RB: Thomas and Coffee
WR: Wayne, Ochocinco, and Driver

I don’t want to sit Vincent Jackson, but I hate his match up @ Pittsburgh. I could put him in the roster in place of Coffee, who I picked up since I picked him up on waivers since he should tear up Seattle with Frank Fore being limited in action.

Answer:

Start Pierre Thomas and Glen Coffee. St. Louis’ run defense is pathetic and the Saints will put up big numbers.

At wide receiver, I would start Reggie Wayne, Ochocinco, and Vincent Jackson, even though he’s playing against Pittsburgh. You have to play your best players regardless of their matchup. I don’t think Pittburgh’s defense is too overwhelming right now, especially with Polamalu out. The Chargers offense is too strong at this point to bench him.

You have a phenomincal receiving corp.

Week 14 – FLEX – Michael Turner, Kenny Britt, Steve Smith, or Vincent Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 14 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 8th, 2010 | 6 Comments

Question: It’s week 14 and I’m in the playoffs. I just need one player to put into the FLEX position.

Pick one of the following players to start in my FLEX this week:

1.) Michael Turner (Q) vs. NO
2.) Kenny Britt vs. STL
3.) Steve Smith (NYG) vs. PHI
4.) Vincent Jackson @ DAL

Who would you pick and why?

Answer:

I think you need to wait a bit to find out Michael Turner’s status. If he plays, he’s a great start, because the Saints defense is very banged up and this game isn’t a lock for New Orleans. Meanwhile, it’s a must win for the Falcons if they want to have a shot at making the plays. If Turner is in the lineup for the Falcons, I would definitely start him.

The other no brainer is Kenny Britt. The Cardinals may have lost Otugwe for the rest of the season and their defense is terrible
