NFL Week 17 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Advice

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 | Comment »


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?┬áMy other RB is Chris Johnson, so I’m good there.


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 17: QB Start/Sit – Joe Flacco or Tom Brady?

Posted by in NFL Week 17 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 29th, 2010 | 1 Comment

Question: Should I start Tom Brady or Joe Flacco?

Before you say “play Tom Brady every week,” let me explain:

The Patriots have already clinched their division and #1 seed and they might end up limiting their starting line-up meaning Tom Brady might not be doing much and he’s projected to get very few points.

On the other hand, I have Joe Flacco on my bench going up against Cincinnati.

David Garrard is also on waivers. I think Gerrard might have a big game as they are going against the terrible Houston Texans defense and the Jaguars have a possible playoff chance to fight for. Garrard has been doing exceptionally well these last few weeks. Should I pick him and start him? The last time Garrard played Houston he put up 28 points.


Brady is probably a bad start this week, as the Pats are locked into their playoff spot.Garrard may be the way to go this week as he has something to play for and has a good matchup. Brady play a max of a half or maybe just a few drives.
