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.…

Week 2 – RB – Sit or Start – BenJarvus Green-Ellis or Willis McGahee?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 14th, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I have LeSean McCoy as my RB1 and my RB2 spot is between BenJarvus Green-Ellis (vs. CLE) or Willis McGahree (vs. ATL). Who should I start this week?

Answer:

I think you’ll see both backs put up solid numbers this week. BenJarvus Green-Ellis should pile up the yards against a soft Browns run defense. However, I would go with Willis McGahee. I’m expecting a shootout in the Falcons vs. Broncos game. That could lead to some more goalline opportunities for McGahee.…

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 2 – RB – Start or Sit – Felix Jones or Willis McGahee?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 18th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: Which RB do I start in week 2?

I’m not too high on Felix Jones after his dud last week. I have Willis McGahee on my bench and he is getting almost all of the carries in Denver. I also have Pierre Thomas on my bench, who is capable of putting up some serious points on the Saints offense, but he has some injury concerns.

Best answer:

I would bench Felix Jones. I always concerned with the amount of touches Felix Jones gets. He can put up some fantasy monster games, but he’s far too inconsistent for me to start every week. With concerns remaining over Knowshon Moreno’s knee, Willis McGahee should still continue to get the bulk of carries for Denver so I think you should put him in your starting lineup.

Best answer:

Start Maurice Jones-Drew, Steve Slaton, and Willis McGahee, who looks like he’s back to his former form.

At WR, go with Plaxico Burress, Vincent Jackson, and Roddy White.
