NFL Week 4 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Advice

Week 4 – Start or Sit – Dez Bryant, Marques Colston, or Danny Amendola?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 29th, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Which 2 WRs should I start in a standard league for week 4?

Michael Crabtree @ NYJ
Marques Colston @ GB
Danny Amendola vs. SEA
Dez Bryant vs. DAL

Answer:

This is a tough question since you have some tough matchups. Despite the tough Bears matchup, you have to start Dez Bryant as he’s your top WR. You play your best player regardless of the matchup. Bryant should still perform well even against the Bears. The Cowboys are at home on Monday Night which I like.

If this was a PPR league, I say you go Amendola, but without PPR, he’s not as valuable in standard leagues. Seattle has a tough defense and he shouldn’t be getting anywhere close to that 100 YPG that he’s been averaging.

I have Michael Crabtree on my squad but haven’t started him yet. He gets a lot of targets, but he’s not going to score a whole lot of TDs. He’ll gain 60-70 receiving yards consistently each week, but won’t put up any ridiculous numbers.

In your WR2 spot, I would go with Marques Colston. If you’re leaning Amedola for your WR2, that wouldn’t be a bad option either. Good luck.…

Week 4 – Start or Sit – Willis McGahee or Cedric Benson?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 29th, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I have the following players and am struggling to decide who to start and who to sit.

Vincent Jackson vs. WAS
Eric Decker vs. OAK
Steve Smith @ ATL
Willis McGahee vs. OAK
Cedric Benson vs. NO

I have Jackson/Decker/Benson starting for week 4 but wondering if I should make a change. Thanks!

Answer:

You have some great matchups to work with. I would go with Vincent Jackson and Eric Decker as my starting WRs since they are facing two poor defenses. Decker should have his first monster fantasy game of the season. Big Ben threw for over 300 yards on the Raiders last week since the Raiders corners are banged up. Peyton Manning will pick them apart.

If you’re deciding between Benson and McGahee at RB, I say you go Benson. McGahee has some banged up ribs and is listed as questionable so he may sit this game out or take limited snaps. Green Bay was feeding Benson the ball last week and that should continue as they’re facing the Saints, who have the worst run defense in the league and gave up over 200 yards to Jamaal Charles last week.

You got it right. Vincent Jackson, Eric Decker, and Cedric Benson are your guys for week 4.…

Week 4 – Start or Sit – Kendall Wright, Robert Meachem, or Dexter McCluster?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 29th, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I need to decide who to start in my flex spot for a standard scoring league.

Kendall Wright @ HOU
Robert Meachem @ KC
Dexter McCluster vs. SD

Or do I drop one of those guys to pick up Nate Burleson vs. MIN, but I’m limited to 12 add/drops for the year and already used 3.

Answer:

I would go with Robert Meachem, who has a pretty favorable matchup against the Chiefs. He’s also a deep ball threat, so maybe this week is the week that he cashes in that 40-yard TD to put your team over the top.

Kendall Wright has the toughest matchup against Texans defense that doesn’t give up a whole lot of points.

Dexter McCluster is too inconsistent for me to put in my starting lineup. I think you go Meachem here.…

Week 4 – RB – Start/Sit – Jahvid Best or Ahmad Bradshaw?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 7th, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question: Which RB should I start in week 4?

Since Adrian Peterson and Miles Austin are on their bye week, I have the option of playing Jahvid Best or Ahmad Bradshaw this week. However, since Best is somewhat injured and Bradshaw has to go against Chicago’s defense, I would have to assume im going to play Bradshaw, but I hate playing two players from the same team. I was going to play Hakeem Nicks at WR but my other options are Chad Johnson who hasnt done much or Malcolm Floyd. Any suggestions?

Answer:

Jahvid Best is probably still hurt so check his status on Sunday make your moves accordingly. I think Bradshaw is going to have a tough week, but if he’s the best option you have, he is the #1 RB for the Giants. I understand your concerns about having two players from the same team by playing both Nicks and Bradshaw, but sometimes it works in your favor, and at least it’s not players at the same position (I have Roddy White and Julio Jones on my team). You should expect solid production from either Nicks or Bradshaw.

What do you think? Answer below!

Week 4 – WR Start/Sit – Marques Colston, Brandon Lloyd, or Nate Washington?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 5th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: Do I start or sit Marques Colston in week 4?

Im currently starting Brandon Lloyd, Roddy White, and Nate Washington. I just picked up Marques Colston. Would you start him over one of my starting wide receivers or would you give him another week?

Answer:

You have a nice wide receiver corp. Colston has been out with a fractured collar bone for a while and may seem a bit soft at first. Give him a week to get back to full strength. I’m looking for him to put up big numbers later in the season.

Week 4 – WR – Brandon Marshall or Jeremy Maclin?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 30th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question – Which players do I go with in my PPR league?

I have to start two players at WR and another in the Flex out of the following plaCIN

Hakeem Nicks @ ARI
Jeremy Maclin @ SF
Brandon Marshall @ SD
Arian Foster @ PIT
Dexter McCluster @ MIN

Answer:

Well done on your draft sir, this must be an 8 or 10 team league. This is an easy question as  Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Marshall should be your starting wideouts with Arian Foster in your Flex. Out of curiosity, who are your starting runningbacks?

Week 4 – Need Help Setting Roster

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 28th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: I need help setting up my week 4 fantasy roster.

Pick three WR:

Calvin Johnson v. Green Bay
Larry Fitzgerald v. San Diego
Kevin Walter v. Oakland
Mike Wallace v. Baltimore
Demaryius Thomas v. Tennessee
Derrick Mason v. Pittsburgh

Pick two RB:

Ray Rice v. Pittsburgh
Pierre Thomas v. Carolina
Brandon Jackson v. Detroit

I feel that I absolutely have to go with Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald even though they have had just mediocre years so far to say the least. Kevin Walter has performed well so far this year and the match p looks good, especially since Asomugha will be covering Andre Johnson. As far as my running back picture is concerned, Rice has a tough match up and he’s a going to be playing hurt. Pierre Thomas has a good match up but he also has some injury concerns, and Jackson hasn’t shown me much this year. What do you guys think?

Answer:

Man you are screwed this week. All you WRs are facing some strong passing defenses.

Ray Rice should struggle against Pittsburgh even if he was healthy.

Pierre Thomas has a great match up, but he has some injury concerns.

I have Brandon Jackson so I feel your pain. I’m also afraid that the Giant’s Kuhn is going to steal Jacobs TDs at the goal line.
