Week 5: Beanie Wells or Stevan Ridley?

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 11th, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: Who should I start in the flex for week 5, Beanie Wells or Stevan Ridley?

Beanie Wells has been extremely productive so far, but I’m concerned with Beanie Wells lingering injury and he’s facing a touch Minnesota defense. Who would you go with and why? Stevan Ridley is playing against the Giants.

Best answer:

Definitely start Beanie Wells. I made the same mistake by sitting Wells last week. The reason I say you start him is because he gets the outright starting postion unlike Stevan Ridley, who just has a backup role on New England. Wells also said he he’s in tune with his offensive line. The Vikings may have a good defensive line, but so do the Giants. I expect Wells to put up good numbers this week.

Week 5: Brandon Pettigrew or Jared Cook?

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 3rd, 2011 | Comment »

Question: Week 5 start/sit: Brandon Pettigrew (v. CHI) or Jared Cook (v. PIT)?

Jared Cook seems explosive and should get more looks, especially with Kenny Britt out. Is he worth starting this week over Pettigrew? Both teams are facing tough defenses, but Pettigrew vs. Chicago seems like the better match up.

Answer:

I would keep Jared Cook on the bench for 1 more week just to be safe.

Week 5: Matt Schaub or Ben Roethlisberger?

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 23rd, 2010 | 4 Comments

Question: Week 5 start sit questions?

I have have a bit of a dilemma here and can’t decide on who to start this week.

QB – Ben Roethlisberger or Matt Schaub – This one is a toss up

RB – Ahman Green or Thomas Jones – I’m leaning towards Green

WR – Wes Welker, Andre Davis, Tory Holt, Dwayne Bowe, Lee Evans – Need to pick three

Answer

Ahman Green is still questionable for this week so that’s a tough one. I would play Matt Schaub because he’s going up against Miami’s defense and should put up big numbers. At wide receiver I would probably go with Wes Welker, Dwyane Boye and then Andre Davis in the third roster spot.

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 8th, 2010 | 1 Comment

Question: Looking for some week 5 fantasy start/sit advice.

I have two RB spots and a Flex to fill in a PPR league.  Here are my best options for this week.

Ray Rice vs. DEN
LeSean McCoy @SF
Cedric Benson vs. TB
Peyton Hillis vs. ATL

Both Rice and McCoy have been cleared to play this Sunday. Who should I start in my flex, Peyton Hillis or Cedric Benson? What does everyone think?

Best answer:

Great job at drafting a solid set of runningbacks. I would start Ray Rice and LeSean McCoy with Peyton Hillis in the Flex. Good Luck.

NFL Week 6 Sit ‘Em, Start ‘Em

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 13th, 2009 | Comment »

START ‘EM IN WEEK 6:

1.) Rashard Mendenhall — Time to keep on riding Mendenhall.  After great games against the Steelers in Chargers, he now has the Browns.  He has 3 TDs in the last two games and an average of 137 combined yards in those contests.  What a great late-round pickup since you could count on Willie Parker getting injured at some point in the season.

2.) Brian Westbrook/LeSean McCoy — Westbrook got you a TD last week against the Bucs, but neither back put up big yards since the Eagles aired it out against the Bucs.  Andy Reid was a little upset with the lack of the ability to run.  He should be able to get the running game going against the Raiders 31st ranked run D.  You obviously want to start Westbrook, but I also think there’s enough room to get McCoy some quality fantasy points if you have a flex spot on your team.

3.) Cadillac Williams — Williams is either hit or miss.  He can either give you 100 yards or 10 yards.  He’s not a “must start” but he is if you don’t have a good RB option this week.  The Panthers give up over 150 rushing yards per game.  The Bucs should turn to the running game this week against the Panthers since Josh Johnson is still developing as a QB.

4.) DeAngelo Williams — He should rebound after a poor outing against the Redskins when he was held to just 41 yards on 20 carries.  The Bucs run D has been spotty this year.

5.) Thomas Jones/Leon Washington — Both players get the nod against the Bills, who give up over 150 yards per game on the ground.

6.) Cedric Benson — …

Week 5 – RB – Thomas Jones or Fred Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 9th, 2009 | 1 Comment

Question: Week 5 Start em or Sit em? Thomas Jones or Fred Jackson?

In week 5, should I start Fred Jackson vs. CLE, or Thomas Jones vs. MIA? Keep in mind that Miami has the 2nd best rush defense and Cleveland has the 31st worst rush defense. Both Jackson and Jones are splitting carries, so who should I start?

Answer:

Go with Fred Jackson. Lynch is back in the mix but Jackson should produce this week against the Brown’s awful rushing defense. Thomas Jones has a tough task this week on the road against Miami’s run defense. Additionally, RB Shonn Greene is now part of the backfield rotation, which could take away more carries for Jones.
