NFL Week 2 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Advice

Week 2 – Flex – Start or Sit – Smith Smith or Stevan Ridley?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 16th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: Which player should I go with in week 2 at the flex?

Steve Smith @ CAR or Stevan Ridley vs. ARI

Answer:

I like Stevan Ridley. First, Steve Smith is listed as questionable with knee injury, but will be active. Although I expect the Saints vs. Panthers game to be a high-scoring shootout, Smith’s injury is still a concern for me. Steven Ridley, on the other hand, was spectacular in week 1 and will get the Pats goalline carries. Since the Pats are facing the Cardinals, that would lead to a lot of scoring opportunities for the Patriots. Ridley had 20 carries, 125 yards and 1 TD in week 1 against the Titans. Very impressive numbers.…

Week 2 – Should I start or sit Antonio Gates?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 16th, 2012 | Comment »

Antonio Gates Week 2 Injury UpdateAntonio Gates comes into his week 2 game against the Tennessee Titans listed as questionable. Antonio Gates suffered a rib injury in week 1 against the Oakland Raiders. Gates was able to finish the game despite the hit to his ribs, but sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Gates’ history of injuries has fantasy owners concerned, but don’t be overly worried yet. It was a foot injury that has plagued Gates the last three years. This was merely a shot to the ribs that caused some soreness.

Gates was able to return to practice on Friday, although it was limited. Gates informed media outlets that he’ll physically and mentally ready to go this Sunday when his Chargers take on the Tennessee Titans, but he’s still experiencing some soreness in his ribs. During practice, Gates wore a protective vest.

I’m an Antonio Gates owner and willing to keep him in my starting lineup. If Gates is a last-minute scratch you should pick up Heath Miller on the waivers. Miller had 50 yards and a TD in week 1 and should be a quality tight end to pick up last minute since the Steelers face the Jets at home at the 4:00 spot.

Another plus for Antonio Gates is his matchup against the Titans D who didn’t have an answer for the Patriots tight end duo last week. The Titans gave up 12 receptions, 119 yards, and 2 TDs to the Patriots Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.…

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Mike Wallace, Eric Decker, Torrey Smith, or Brandon Lloyd?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 15th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: Which 2 wide receivers should I start in week 2?

Mike Wallace vs NYJ
Eric Decker @ ATL
Torrey Smith @PHI
Brandon Lloyd vs. ARI

Answer:

Very nice group of wide receivers. Who did you take in the first 3 rounds? It looks like you got your QB and 2 RBs early and then went WR, WR, WR, WR and got a mighty fine set of receivers to work with.

I like Brandon Lloyd and Eric Decker this week.  The Pats should be able to score a ton of points at home against the Cardinals and hopefully Tom Brady looks Lloyd’s way in the endzone rather than the tight ends he typically looks to. I wasn’t high on Lloyd coming into this season since he’s Brady’s fourth option after Gronkowski, Herandnez, and Welker, but he still managed 5 receptions for 69 yards in week 1.

I also like Eric Decker due to his matchup against the Falcons. This game should be an offensive shootout and Manning will come out throwing to keep up with the Falcons high octane offense.

I love Torrey Smith and have him drafted on two of my teams as my WR3. He’ll be covered by Nnamdi Asomugha or Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie, so that will be a tough matchup for him.

The good news for Mike Wallace is that Darrell Revis is likely out this week with a concussion.

Good luck!…

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 2 – RB – Start or Sit – Ryan Matthews or Stevan Ridley?

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

Question:

I have Ryan Mathews and Steven Ridley on my squad. Mathews was out week 1, but should be back in the lineup in week 2 against the Tennesee Titans. Do I start Matthews this week or give him another week before I put him in my starting lineup?

Answer:

Ryan Mathews is itching to get back on the field and he should play this week. What a performance from Stevan Ridley though in week 1. 125 yards and 1 TD. New England is at home and facing the Cardinals. Ridley may have another big week. The Chargers may decide to be cautious and have Mathews split carries with Ronnie Brown. I would go with Ridley this week.…

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Darrius Heyward-Bey or Lance Moore?

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

Question: I have a WR dillema for week 2.

I have 3 WR spots and a WR/TE flex spot this week. My WR’s are Wes Welker, Roddy White, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Lance Moore? Who would you sit?

Best answer:

I would go with Lance Moore. The Saints are playing the Panthers this week, who don’t have a very solid defense. Brees will be throwing a lot. Although Moore is Brees’ 4th option after Jimmy Graham, Colston, and Sproles, Brees still likes Moore who had 120 yards last week and 1 TD. Darrisu Heyward-Bey had a decent week 1, but I would go with Lance Moore who has a better matchup and a more impressive week 1.

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Mike Wallace or Eric Decker?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 14th, 2012 | 3 Comments

Question: Fantasy Football Start or Sit Week 2?

Start 2 WRs:
Victor Cruz (vs TB)
Marques Colston (@CAR)
Stephen Hill (@PIT)
Mike Wallace (vs. NYJ)
Eric Decker (@ATL)
James Jones (vs. CHI)

Answer:

I would start Victor Cruz and Eric Decker. Cruz has the ability to exploit Eric Wright as Aqib Talib will be on Hakeen Nicks most of the game. I expect Atlanta vs. Denver to be a shootout so Manning should come firing and will look for his boy Eric Decker. Good luck!
