Survivor Pool Pick – Week 3 (2011) – Steelers or Chargers?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2011 | Comment »

Question:

I’m looking for advice on which team I should take in week 3 of my survivor pool. I think both teams are absolute locks straight up. I’m just trying to determine which team is a better strategic play. I’m trying to decide between taking the San Diego Chargers over the Kansas City Chiefs or the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Indianapolis Colts. Which team should I pick and why?

Answer:

Like you said, both teams should be locks this week against their struggling opponents. The Steelers is definitely the safe play against a team without a QB. The Steelers defense probably won’t even let the Colts score. Maybe 10 points max. I would look to save the Steelers until they play the Jaguars or Titans in week 5 and week 6. With the recent injury to Jamaal Charles, they lose their biggest weapon on offense, so the Chargers shouldn’t have a hard time defeating them at home. Good luck this week.

Week 3 Start or Sit: Steve Smith or Johnny Knox?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 20th, 2011 | Comment »

Question: Week 3 start and sit – Steve Smith (CAR) or Johnny Knox?

I have Wes Welker, Hakeen Nicks, Steve Smith (CAR) and Johnny Knox as WRs on my fantasy team. I am obviously going with Wes Welker and Hakeem Nicks as my first two starters. I have to decide between Steve Smith and Johnny Knox.

Steve Smith gets a new QB and a tough CIN corner who shut down Randy Moss in week 1 and Anquan Boldin in week 2. Should I start Johnny Knox instead? What do you think?

Answer:

I don’t like the matchup the Chicago Bears have, so I would stick with Steve Smith. Johnny Knox hasn’t been as consistent. Although he has surprise upside with 100+ yard games, he also has an equal chance of being held to under 20 yards.

Week 3 – WR – Start or Sit – Hakeem Nicks or Jeremy Maclin?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 24th, 2010 | Comment »

Question: Which RBs do I start in week 3?

Here’s my squad.

Marques Colston
Santana Moss
Mark Clayton
Hakeem Nicks
Jeremy Maclin

I’m favoring them in that order. I just can’t decide because if I bench Hakeem Nicks, he’s going to get another 4 touchdowns and Jeremy Maclin is probably going to have the game of his career. I’ve tanked to 4th place and I’m playing the #1 guy in our league and I want to dominate this game.

Answer:

Are you serious? Benching Nicks and Maclin for Santana Moss and Mark Clayton? That’s nonsense. You have to start Colston, Nicks, and Macline. That is a hell of a WR group.

Week 3 – RB/WR – Start or Sit – Pierre Thomas or DeAngelo Williams?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 21st, 2010 | Comment »

Question: I need some help setting my fantasy roster for week 3.

Who do i start at RB? Pick 1.

Pierre Thomas vs. ATL
Deangelo Williams vs. CIN

Who do i start at WR? Pick 2.

Austin Collie @ DEN
Demaryius Thomas vs. IND
Donald Driver @ CHI

Best answer:

With Reggie Bush out, Pierre Thomas should be getting all of the carries for the Saints. I’m not sold on Williams with him splitting carries with Stewart and not getting enough goal-line carries.

Demaryius Thomas had an amazing week 1 with 8 catches and 97 yards. This guy has WR1 potential and will soon be ranked among the likes of Hakeem Nicks and and Brandon Marshall.

Week 3 – RB – Cedric Benson, Pierre Thomas, or Donald Brown?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 24th, 2009 | Comment »

Question: I need some start/sit advice for week 3.

Which 2 RBs should I start?

Cedric Benson vs. PIT — Tough matchup against a good run defense
Pierre Thomas @ BUF — Thomas has been injured all year
Donald Brown @ ARZ — Splitting carries with Joseph Addai
Thomas Jones vs. TEN — Up against another great run defense.

Answer:

Did you not take any RBs in the first 4 rounds of the draft? Tough break there. I would start Benson despite the tough matchup against Pittsburgh. He’s guaranteed to get the most touches out of your backs. Bench Thomas Jones. The last spot is a toss up between Pierre Thomas and Donald Brown. If Pierre Thomas is in the lineup on Sunday, I would start him so check the injury updates right before kickoff. If Pierre plays, you play him.

NFL Week 3 Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2009 | Comment »

START ‘EM:

1.) Matt Forte — I’m a fantasy owner of Matt Forte and if you are, like I am, you’re probably frustrated with him.  Not many yards, no TDs, and an awful yards-per-carry average.  I don’t blame the guy.  He didn’t have an easy start with the Packers and Steelers.  Look for a big game this week against the Seahawks, who gave up over 200 yards and 2 TDs to Frank Gore last week.

2.) Steve Smith — The Giants WR will be a fantasy steel this year.  He runs great routes and is developing great chemistry with Eli Manning.  Against the Bucs, who are struggling against the pass, he looks to have another huge day.

3.) Chansi Stuckey — He came out with an impressive game against the Texans, but couldn’t really get going against the Patriots.  He now has the Titans, who were destroyed by the Steelers and Texans passing game.  I think the Titans D gangs up on Cotchery, which leave Stuckey with a lot of looks.

4.) Maurice Jones-Drew — Can he put up Chris Johnson like numbers against a weak Texans run D? Likely over 120 combined yards with a TD or two.

5.) Tim Hightower — The Colts got lit up by the Dolphins run game and they’ll be vulnerable to this pass-catching RB.

6.) Ahmad Bradshaw — The Giants are using him a lot and against the Bucs, he has a very favorable matchup.

7.) Ronnie Brown — A no-brainer after last week’s performance against the Colts.  Another favorable matchup against the Chargers.

8.) Felix Jones — With Barber possibly out or at least getting less carries, Jones will see an increased role and should follow up on the near 100 yard, …

Week 3 – RB – Forte, Jackson, Lynch, or Jacobs?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on August 4th, 2008 | Comment »

Question: Need help picking my RBs for week 3.

QB: Matt Hasselbeck, Jake Delhomme or Carson Palmer

RB: Matt Forte, Steven Jackson, Marshawn Lynch, Brandon Jacobs, Larry Johnson, or Steve Slaton (Pick 3)

Best answer:

Jake Delhomme – Delhomme will be getting Steve Smith back. Palmer has been struggling and Hasselbecks WRs are hurt.

Steven Jackson – Jackson will go nuts in SEA as this the Rams best chance to get a win while Seattle’s offense is struggling.

Marshawn Lynch – Lynch should have a very good game against OAK as the Bills will get great field position all day against a terrible offense.

Brandon Jacobs – Jacobs will run all over the Bengals.
