NFL Week 5 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Advice

NFL Week 5 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, Waiver Wire Pick Ups

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 7th, 2009 | Comment »


1.) Marshawn Lynch — You didn’t want to start Marshawn Lynch last week at Miami, but at home against the Browns, the Bills gameplan should be a LOT of Marshawn Lynch.  Expect this game to be Marshawn’s “welcome back” in the NFL.  I’m anticipating over 100 combined yards from Lynch.

2.) LeSean McCoy/Brian Westbrook — I would start both players.  Westbrook should be back with the Eagles, but since he’s coming off the injury, I’m sure the Eagles will split the load 50/50 between both backs.  With a favorable matchup against the Bucs, the Eagles gameplan should consist of running the ball a lot and there is enough room for both backs to put up quality numbers.

3.) Tim Hightower — Against a poor Texans defense, Hightower should be able to get involved in the gameplan.  Although he may not rack up rushing yards, he’ll provide enough receiving yards and should reach the century mark in combined yards.

4.) Rashard Mendenhall — With Willie Parker out against the Chargers, Mendhenhall came in and had his break out party.  191 combined yards!  165 rushing yards on just 25 attempts (5.7 YPC) and 26 receiving yards.  He also ran for 2 TDs.  Against the Lions, they’ll be in for another healthy dose of Mendenhall.

5.) Clinton Portis — Looks like Portis’s days as an elite RB may be over.  He had a chance to prove to fantasy owners that he is a valuable RB against a poor Bucs defense.  Although he posted 98 yards on 25 carries (3.9 YPA), he is averaging only 70 yards a game and hasn’t seen the endzone yet.  Against a weak Carolina defense, who rank 32nd against the run, he’ll have 1 …

NFL Week 5 Fantasy Start ‘Em Or Sit ‘Em

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 1st, 2008 | Comment »


1.) Matt Forte – The Eagles shut down Forte, but look for Forte get back his normal ways against a defense that allows 207 rushing yards per game. Another 90 yard rushing, 70 yard receiving yard, 1 TD isn’t out of question.

2.) Steve Slaton – Slaton has gotten off to a hot start. He’s eclipsed over 100 yards in his last 2 games and has scored a TD in each. The Texans are up against the Colts, who are struggling against the run (ranked 31st).

3.) Jonathan Stewart – The Chiefs allow 176 YPG on the ground. Stewart is another rookie off to an amazing start. He’s a very good option to start this game.

4.) Joseph Addai – Fresh off the bye week, the Colts will be able to move the ball well on the ground against a poor Texans run defense. The Texans did play much better against the run last week against the Jaguars last week, but Addai is still due for a big game.

5.) Frank Gore – We saw what Ronnie Brown did to the Pats, who are giving up 140 YPG on the ground. Need I say more?

6.) Marion Barber – Although Barber was a bust last week, Dallas should learn that they need to get him more carries and that will be the game plan against the Bengals, who give up more than 160 YPG on the ground.

7.) Earnest Graham – The Broncos nearly gave up 200 yards to Larry Johnson last week. That has be excited as a Graham owner against this defense.


1.) Clinton Portis – Even though I had him on the sit ’em list last week, I decided it would be wiser …
