NFL Week 3 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Advice

Week 3 – Waiver Wire – Philip Rivers, Eddie Royal, or Percy Harvin?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 17th, 2013 | Comment »

Eddie Royal Waiver WireIn just after week 2, you’re already making transactions looking to improve your roster wherever you can. There has been a slew of injuries that are leaving you looking for a Plan B or your top draft picks are already letting you down. Here are the top waiver moves after week 2.

There are some concerns for RGIII owners. Although he’s actually put up solid back-to-back 20+ point games in week 1 and week 2, Robert Griffin III has been awful in the first half and clearly should take the blame for the losses in both weeks. His mechanics are off because of the knee injury and he’s afraid to get hit. There’s already talk that if the Redskins go 0-3, Shanahan should bench RGIII until he’s healthy and go with Kirk Cousins. Redskins fans are already calling for Cousins. If there is a QB controversy in Washington, you better start looking elsewhere for a reliable backup if you don’t already have one.

At the top of the QB waiver wire, I would take Philip Rivers. Rivers is looking good again despite not having a true #1 receiver. He has a bunch of roleplayers and he’s making it work. With a Malcom Flloyd, Eddie Royal, a healthy Antonio Gates, and now Danny Woodhead to work with on 3rd down, he has plenty of weapons at his disposal to work with. Ken Wissenhunt has been doing a great job with this offense and the Chargers offense should be back to the 27 PPG offense that we’ve been used to in year’s past when Rivers was a fantasy stud in the 2008-2011 years where Rivers averaged about 30 TD/year and threw for over 4,000 yards every single season. The Chargers are …

Week 3 – Flex – Start or Sit – Peyton Hillis, Mark Ingram, or Michael Crabtree?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Should I start or sit Peyton Hillis in week 3 @ New Orlenas? This is for my flex and my other options are Mark Ingram vs. KC or Michael Crabtree @ MIN.

Answer:

Peyton Hillis has been a disappointment for fantasy owner who likely spent a mid-round pick on him when a quality WR could have been taken such as Mike Wallace or Stevie Johnson.

The good news for Peyton Hillis this week is the Saints defense. They’ve given up the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs through two games this season. Jamaal Charles also tweaked his inured knee last week against the Bills. Although Charles should play this week (he’s listed as probable), the injury gives the Chiefs staff more reasons to decrease his workload while giving Hillis more carries.

Hillis saw 7 carries in week 1 and 11 carries last week. Hills may see as many as 15 carries this week. Although Hillis in week 1 was a bust against the Falcons, Hillis had a much better game in week 2 against the Bills picking up 66 yards on 11 carries and hauling in 3 receptions for 25 yards. A 6.0 YPC and 12.5 YPR average make fantasy owners happy, but he just needs to get more touches and he should have that opportunity against the Saints this week.

I don’t trust Ingram in my starting lineup since his fantasy numbers are always contingent on whether he gets any goalline opportunities for the Saints. Without the goalline opportunities, he won’t put up any big numbers and his statline may come in at 15 carries for 60 yards on a good day. Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles also put a big dent in his touches.

Michael Crabtree …

Week 3 – WR – Start or Sit – Marques Colston or Lance Moore?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Should I start Lance Moore or Marques Colston in week 3.  My other active WR’s are A.J. Green, Mike Wallace, and at Flex Stevie Johnson in a PPR league.

Answer:

Marques Colston is listed as questionable with a foot injury, so you may want to put Lance Moore in the starting lineup. If you find out right before kickoff that Colston is going to be playing, then I would insert him in your lineup as he’s a more consistent producer compared to Moore.

Your other wide receivers and flex should do plenty of damage this week. A.J. Green @ WAS, Mike Wallace @ OAK, and Stevie Johnson @ CLE are all quality starts this week due to their favorable matchups and should put up big numbers this week.

Good luck!…

Week 3 – RB – Start or Sit – Ryan Matthews or Steven Ridley?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 22nd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Who should I start? Steven Ridley or Ryan Mathews in week 3?

Answer:

Steven Ridley will take on the Baltimore Ravens on the road and Ryan Mat]thews will have the Atlanta Falcons at home. Ridley has so far been a great mid-round pick putting up about 18 points in week 1 and nearly 10 points in week 2.

Mathews has been sidelined for two weeks with a collarbone injury. His return is still questionable. Matthews wants to play and the fact that he practiced this past week is an encouraging sign. He’s on track to get the start this Sunday, but I don’t like the fact that it’s still an unknown if and how much he’ll play.

The good news is that the Chargers have the 4:00 game and the Patriots play at night. I think you go into this one with Ryan Mathews as the starter and if he’s a last-minute scratch, which is unlikely at this point, you can insert Stevan Ridley in your lineup. Mathews is the play this week as he has a better matchup than Ridley.…

Week 3 – WR – Mike Wallace of Dwayne Bowe?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 22nd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I can’t figure out if I should Mike Wallace or Dwayne Howe at WR2. Help!!

Answer:

You shouldn’t go wrong with either player. I like Mike Wallace’s matchup in Oakland, especially since the Raiders top two corners are injured.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:  Whoever plays cornerback for the Raiders on Sunday, they’re going to have their hands full with Pittsburgh receiver Mike Wallace. “Fastest kid in the world,” Raiders safety Michael Huff said of Wallace. “You see him on film and you see corners playing off … he is probably track-Olympic-fast, to be honest.” The Raiders have been looking for answers all week now that they are without both starting cornerbacks, Ron Bartell (shoulder) and Shawntae Spencer (foot). Backups Pat Lee and Joselio Hanson didn’t inspire much confidence last week against the Dolphins.

Wallace is averaging 55 YPG and has had a TD in each game.

Dwayne Bowe also had a hell of a game against the Bills with 8 receptions, 102 yards, and 2 TDs. The Saints have a suspect defense which should allow Bowe to put up big numbers as well.

The bottom line is that you can’t go wrong with either of these guys. With the Raiders starting corners out, I think you should exploit that and take Mike Wallace this week.

Good luck!…

Question: Who should I start out of Blount, Benson, and Wells?

Adrian Peterson is my No. 1 RB and I need some advice on who to pick for my No. 2 RB.

LeGarrette Blount vs. ATL
Cedric Benson vs. SF
Beanie Wells vs. SEA

I need to pick 1 out of those 3.

Answer:

All are pretty good matchups so you can’t go wrong there. I would go with LeGarrette Blount. He was hot last week.

Week 3 Sit/Start QB Romo or Schaub?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 24th, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: Week 3 Sit/Start QB Tony Romo or Matt Schaub?

Who would you go with.  Matt Schaub vs. JAC or Tony Romo vs. CAR?

ESPN is projecting 18 points for Schaub and 14 points for Romo. I’m leaning Schaub since the Jags are pretty pathetic and I also have Andrew Johnson as my WR too.

Answer:

You’re right on the money. Schaub and Andre Johnson will destroy the Jags. They both have good matchups, so you won’t go wrong with either one. Good Luck.
