NFL Week 1 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Advice

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 1 – WR – Start or Sit – Justin Blackmon or Dwayne Bowe?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 4th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: Which WR do I start in week 1?

Justin Blackmon vs. MIN
Dwayne Bowe vs. ATL

Answer:

If Dwayne Bowe didn’t hold out this offseason, Bowe would be a good choice, but it may take Bowe a few games to get back up to speed. Blackmon also held out for a long period of time, but he got a lot of reps in the preseason and has looked very good in preseason action.

Blackmon got a crazy amount of targets from Blaine Gabbert in the preseason. I expect Blackmon to have a solid rookie year with around 65 receptions, 900 yards, and 5 TDs to be a little conservative.  An 80 reception, 1,000 yard, 6 TD season is certainly a possibility based on this guy’s potential.

Blackmon has been very impressive so far this preseason and is drawing the praise of his coaching staff. Blackmon is the man to go with in week 1.…

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 1 – RB Start/Sit – Chris Johnson, DeAngelo Williams, or Shonn Greene?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 9th, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question: Which RBs should I start in week 1?

Chris Johnson @ JAX
DeAngelo Williams @ ARI
Shonn Greene @ DAL

I am leaning towards DeAngelo and Shonn Greene because I am not sure how many touches Chris Johnson will get in his first week back. Tennessee’s coach also said that Johnson will be limited in his first game back.

Best answer:

Why would Chris Johnson be limited? I would play him since Jacksonville’s defense if atrocious. In the second RB spot, I would go with DeAngelo Williams since Arizona has a poor run defense and the Cowboys run defense should be pretty solid this year. Bench Greene this week.

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 | 2 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?

Answer:

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 1 – WR – Steve Smith or Lee Evans?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 6th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: In week 1, do I go with Steve Smith or Lee Evans?

I need a WR to play this week in my FLEX positio nand since I have no good RBs on my bench I decided to start either Steve Smith (CAR) or Lee Evans (BAL).

I personally don’t see the Ravens offense doing too much against the Steelers D. For the Panthers, Steve Smith is good, but I don’t know if I can rely on Cam Newton in his first start as a rookie to get the ball to Steve Smith, albeit against a poor Cardinals D.  Just looking for some opinions.

Answer:

Go with Steve Smith. Believe me, Cam Newton will have an impressive year. Matt Ryan had a monster game in his NFL debut. I expect big things from Cam Newton. Yeah, he is a rookie QB and a terrible team, but Steve Smith is by far the best talent and I’m sure he’ll get his yards against the Cardinals. Evans, as you said, gets stuck with Pitt D and he may not even be able to put up any significant yardage.

Week 1 Start/Sit Advice – Cassel or McCoy, Colston or Marshall?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 6th, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question:

QB – Now that Peyton Manning is out, would you start Matt Cassel vs. BUF or Colt McCoy vs. CIN?  Matt Cassel has already said he will play despite rib injury.

WR: I have Marques Colston @ GB and Mike Wallace @ BA. Should I replace either one with Brandon Marshall vs. NE?

RB: Thomas Jones vs. BUF or Ryan Mathews vs. MIN

Answer

QB- I would go with Cold McCoy vs. Cincinnati just because Cinccinnati has a terrile defense and the threat of Peyton Hillis will not help.

WR- I would go with Marquest Colston vs. GB just because GB dosent have a great secondary.

RB- Ryan Matthews vs. Minny just because he is there bona fide starter while at KC Thomas Jones is 2nd string for Jamaal Charles.…
