Week 17 Start Em’ Sit Em’

Frank Dyevoich | December 29th, 2018

Most fantasy football championships were won in Week 16 so Congratulations to those of you who have brought home that coveted title in 2018! For those of you still competing in Week 17, you are doing it wrong. Week 17 is usually just as unpredictable as the pre-season because many teams have locked up their playoff position and have nothing to play for which results in many teams resting their starters. This messes up the entire fantasy arena because the superstars who carried you all the way through the playoffs are not going to play and you are left searching the waiver wire for backup players that are going to see a ton of volume. Further, some teams that are out of playoff contention also choose to rest their superstars because they do not want them to suffer a serious injury that may threaten their availability in 2019 in a completely meaningless game. Therefore, first and foremost, stop playing your championships in Week 17. For those of you still with a title on the line, the following start/sit recommendations are based on this week’s matchups and whether or not teams have anything to play for in Week 17.

Week 15 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Frank Dyevoich | December 16th, 2018

Congratulations if you have made it to your semi-finals and are still fighting for that coveted fantasy football championship. There is only one more week before our championship rounds, unless you play in Week 17, so now is the time to focus even harder and analyze our lineup options with a fine-toothed comb because one wrong move and it spell disaster for everything that we have worked so hard to accomplish this year. The most important rule is not to get cute with your lineups. Last week, Joe Mixon had a tough matchup and Sony Michel had a delicious one, but if you started Michel over Mixon you fell flat. Mixon is a stud and you start your studs. The following start and sit recommendations are based on this week’s matchups.

Josh Adams: The Only Bright Spot In A Dark Game

Matt Woolsey | November 21st, 2018

Obviously, the biggest story out of Week 11 was the buffet of fantasy points you got if you had anyone playing in the Monday Night game. Another big story was how bad the Eagles were against the Saints. We knew the Saints were going to put points but we all expected Philadelphia to hang with them somewhat. Both Marcus Mariota and Alex Smith, not only left their respective games with injuries, but they both outscored Carson Wentz in fantasy.

Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Week 6

Frank Dyevoich | October 13th, 2018

We are just about halfway through the season heading into week six, and our matchups become more critical. In these next few weeks, some will clinch a playoff berth and some will be eliminated from contention. That is why we must always be trying to improve our teams and do what we can to put the best possible starting lineup out there. First and foremost, always start the guys filling in for injured players. I am not going to tell you to start T.J. Yeldon and Tevin Coleman because that is too obvious, those guys should be in everyone’s lineups. However, there are tons of players with great matchups this week so we have to make sure we pinpoint those matchups and capitalize.
