We had ourselves an amazing Fantasy Football week last week and I hope we can carry that momentum into this week, because who doesn’t like Fantasy Football? I mean really who doesn’t please let me know we can converse. Anyway, we got your Sunday/Monday Start’em/Sit’ems and I hope I can help you guys out in your matchup this week. If you listened on Thursday, your team may be on to a hot start.
Start: Taylor Heinicke (WFT)
Yes, I know very weird. Why the hell would I start this dude, and the reason is they are playing the worst defense when it comes to allowing fantasy points to QB’s. The Chiefs have been awful in the passing defense this year. Taylor Heinicke hos good mobilization too, so rushing yards can occur as well.
Sit: Ryan Tannehill (TENN)
He has been struggling all year long. I know he had high expectations this year as a fantasy QB, but this is not the week to hope it turns. The Bills have been great. Look what they did to the high-powered Chiefs offense. Avoid him this week and hopefully he turns it around soon.
Start: Myles Gaskin (MIA)
Gaskin had a big week last week and honestly I expect him to repeat against the Jags. He clearly is the best back in Miami and this is a very favorable matchup against the Jags. I mean the man had 10 receptions last game. Give him the start and it will also give you a reason to get up and watch the London game.
Sit: James Conner (ARI)
Conner has been a solid RB option the past few weeks averaging 15.86 (half-ppr) in his last three games. However, the Browns defense has been great all year, minus last week, and if it were not for touchdowns, Conner’s numbers would not have been so good. He is too touchdown reliant and he is also due not to score one soon. If you have other options, use them
Start: Odell Beckham Jr. (CLE)
No, I am not crazy. This is a big game for the Browns and if they want to have any success, they will need Odell. He is due to breakout and this is the week it will happen. Star filled game, stars will show. Give him a shot this week, if it becomes a struggle once again, the panic button may need to be put in place.
Sit: Tyler Lockett/DK Metcalf (SEA)
Geno Smith… that is all that needs to be said. Steelers defense has also been good year-round and the reason why they have won football games. If you got other options use them. This more applies to Tyler Lockett since most people probably drafted Metcalf higher, thus more inclined to start him.
Start: Ricky Seals-Jones (WFT)
This is for the same reason why I said to start Heinicke. Chiefs passing defense sucks. Tight Ends are hard to find to start consistently. Give Seals-Jones a whirl.
Sit: David Njoku (CLE)
Okay so yes this contradicts what I said with Odell, but I have my reasoning. Arizona has been the best defense this year in guarding the Tight End. That is also why I believe Odell finds success this week. With Njoku likely held in check by the Arizona defense, others need to step up for the Browns. Sit Njoku, but maybe look at other Browns option in that fun game.
We got football all day, from sunrise to sunset. MAKE SURE TO SET THE LINEUPS TONIGHT WITH THE 9:30 AM EASTERN GAME. Take my advice as you will, I don’t care, but I am trying to help. Enjoy your Sunday.
