FantasySavvy 2012: Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Week 13

For some of you the playoffs may have started already, but for the majority, this is the last week of the regular season. Thanks for reading all season and make sure to continue to follow us throughout the Fantasy playoffs. If you guys have any questions you can ask me on twitter @FantasySavvy.

You won’t see the obvious names on here, that would be pointless. Maybe occasionally to give you a reminder, but rather we are looking to identify some guys that you may be on the fence with and encourage you to either start or sit them. Matchups will be broken down, stats will be used, some projections will be provided and some “gut” feeling will be mixed in. But when it comes down to the come down, it’s your “gut” you need to roll with.

*Players listed in order of projected effectiveness in the start ‘em category and ineffectiveness in the sit ‘em category.

Quarterbacks

Start ‘Em

Tony Romo vs Philly

Romo delivered for Fantasy Owners on Thanksgiving and has been turning it on of late after a slow start to the season. There is no doubt he should keep it going against the Eagles who are falling apart at the seams. Expect another nice day.

Colin Kaepernick @ St. Louis

Kaepernick will get another start this week and as long as he continues his solid play he will remain the starter. The Rams don’t pose a threat to Kaep’s potential effectiveness in this one, so keep him rolling in Week 13.

Matt Schaub @ Tennessee

The Titans are allowing the 6th most points to QB’s and Schaub has been picking up the pace in his last couple of games. Look for Schaub to have a very efficient game, something along the lines of 250 yards and two TD’s.

Sit ‘Em

Joe Flacco vs Pittsburgh

Lets face it, Joe Flacco is who we thought he was. The guy just will never be a bigtime QB. He can’t be trusted going against the Steelers who are the best at defending Fantasy QB’s.

Jay Cutler vs Seattle

Seattle CB’s Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman will both play in this game because they are appealing their suspensions and that equates to bad news for Jay Cutler. Cutler probably will be limited to just one TD in this game.

Phillip Rivers vs Cincinnati

Rivers has failed to have above 20 fantasy points in five of his last six games and against the Bengals who have been playing great defense of late he needs to be reserved.

Running Backs

Start ‘Em

Bryce Brown @ Dallas

Brown impressed on Monday Night against the Panthers displaying his speed and ability to turn the corner on the defense. He should keep it going against Dallas and their average run D (ranked 13th best) and I expect close to 100 total yards with at least one TD.

Darren Sproles @ Atlanta

Good Spot to use Sproles tonight in what should be a high scoring game in Atlanta. The Falcons are giving up the 9th most points to Fantasy Backs so get Darren in your lineups.

Mikel Leshoure vs Indy

Leshoure keeps producing for Fantasy Owners finding the endzone in five of his last six games. He also was the first back to score against the Houston Texans this season. The Lions should be in the redzone often against the Colts, so look for Leshoure to find the endzone at least once making him a nice start once again.

Sit ‘Em

Shonn Greene vs Arizona

The Jets are just a complete mess right now and NO JET can be trusted. Arizona is 8th best against Fantasy Backs and Greene usually duds in tough matchups.

Steven Jackson vs 49ers

Jackson has been running hard all year, it just hasn’t equated to much production as he has just two TD’s. Against the 49ers you need to find other options.

Matt Forte vs Seattle

Forte has been burning fantasy owners of late constantly failing to find the endzone. Michael Bush took two TD’s away from him last week. With the ankle sprain and the Seahawks coming to town, consider benching Forte.

Wide Receivers

Start ‘Em

Hakeem Nicks @ Washington

Nicks appears to be finally healthy now and has a wonderful matchup on Monday Night against the Skins. DeAngelo Hall can not cover Nicks and Eli should find him often. Expect a 6-7 catch, 80-100 yard performance with a possible TD.

Justin Blackmon, Cecil Shorts @ Buffalo

Shorts has been solid pretty much all season and Blackmon has emerged ever since Chad Henne has taken over at QB with three TD’s in his past two games. The duo should keep up the production against Buffalo who are allowing the 10th most points to Fantasy WR’s.

Pierre Garcon vs New York Giants

Garcon is back and healthy and along with Santana Moss will be RG3′s favorite target. The catch he made against the Cowboys where he caught it behind his body and took it the house, shows that he can be trusted and against the Giants who are allowing the 2nd most points to WR’s, he needs to be in lineups.

Sit ‘Em

Brandon Lloyd @ Miami

This is a good matchup for Lloyd, but he is just not getting the job done and has been brutal the past three weeks. Brady prefers WelkerHernandez and now Edelman over Lloyd. He is becoming the 4th option in the passing game. Until he shows more of a rapport and a connection with Brady he needs to be benched.

Donnie Avery @ Detroit

Avery gets a lot of targets but does very little with them. He hasn’t scored since week one and only has one game with more than 70 yards receiving in his last nine.

James Jones vs Minnesota

Jones wasn’t even targeted last week and now with Greg Jennings set to return he is the Packers WR who will suffer the most as a result. Keep him away from your lineups.

Tight Ends

Start ‘Em

Aaron Hernandez @ Miami

Don’t worry about his game last week against the Jets where he had just 30 yards, Hernandez is going to get it going eventually and it should begin to happen against the Dolphins. Look for around 60-70 yards with a possible score.

Vernon Davis @ St. Louis 

Davis is a very frustrating player to own. He arguably is the most talented Tight End in the league, he just doesn’t put up the numbers to back that up. I think the biggest problem was Alex Smith, now with Kaepernick, Davis should start to flourish. He did absolutely nothing last week, but be patient with him.

Dallas Clark @ Denver

The Freeman, Clark connection has been improving the last few weeks and against Denver who are giving up the most points to Fantasy Tight Ends, he’s not a bad option. I expect him to go over 50 yards.

Sit ‘Em

Brent Celek @ Dallas

Celek has just one TD all year and without Vick he can’t be relied upon. Dallas also has been 10th best against Fantasy Tight Ends this year.

Dustin Keller vs Arizona

The only team that Keller has really produced against was the Pats, besides that he has done very little. Arizona boasts the 2nd best ranking against Tight Ends, so keep Keller benched.

Dennis Pitta vs Pittsburgh

Pitta has scored in two of his last three games and appears to have picked up the pace again, but I am steering clear of him against the Steelers who have allowed the 7th fewest points to Tight Ends.

IDP’s

Start ‘Em

Aldon Smith @ St. Louis

Smith had a bad matchup against the Saints last week and still produced. He needs to be in your lineups the rest of the way, the guy is a straight beast. Smith should put Bradford on his behind at least twice.

DeMarcus Ware vs Philly

Ware has been very quiet the past three weeks, but expect that to change against Philly who are allowing a ton of sacks and the most points to Fantasy DE’s.

Sit ‘Em

John Abraham vs New Orleans

The veteran is having another solid season with nine sacks, but Drew Brees doesn’t get sacked often and the Saints are allowing the 2nd fewest points to DE’s.

Cameron Wake vs New England

Don’t trust Wake against the Pats and Brady who are allowing the 4th fewest amount points to DE’s.

FantasySavvy 2012: Week 3, Fantasy Five

By: Kevin Lewis,  @Klew24

Philadelphia @ Arizona

Start Vick with caution. He should have plenty of opportunities, as the Eagles defense will bottle up the Cardinals on Sunday. He also has been turnover prone, and the Cardinals do boast a good defense. And the Eagles lost 2 offensive linemen this past week. If you have a comparable backup option, I’d go with him.

Sit Larry Fitzgerald. I’m not saying his long term prospects this year look bleak. He will be fine. However, this week he’s going up against a good secondary. If you have a good option on your bench, go with it and feel comfortable. I know it’s hard benching a second round pick this early but it must be done.

Start Brent Celek. In this kind of game, against a good Arizona defense, I’d feel comfortable starting Vick’s safety blanket. Maclin is out which means there are targets to be had. Celek has had quite a start to the 2012 campaign and I’d expect that to continue.

Sit Desean Jackson. With Maclin out, I’d expect lots of rolled coverage to Jackson’s side. And with Patrick Peterson looming, I’d sit him out this week

Houston @ Denver

Sit Matt Schaub. I don’t think many people went into this season with Schaub as their starting QB but if you did, and you have a good bench option, go with him. Denver has actually done a fairly solid job against the pass.

Don’t be stirred by Peyton Manning’s performance last week. Yes he threw three picks but he’s also Peyton Manning. While his arm doesn’t look like what it once was, don’t overreact. While Houston is a tough matchup, I’d start Manning this week.

Start Willis McGahee. I know the Houston Texans defense is great, and Willis won’t get many yards on the ground. That being said, Peyton Manning led teams love running the ball inside the 10 yard line. I can see McGahee getting a TD or two this week on that account.

Stay patient with Eric Decker. A lot of people liked Decker over DeMaryius Thomas and I never really got why, but Decker should get better as the chemistry between him and Manning grows. He’s a solid WR.

St. Louis @ Chicago

Don’t be discouraged by Jay Cutler’s terrible performance last Thursday. He probably should have been a fringe starter/high end QB2 anyway, but if you have him, start him with confidence. The Rams defense isn’t particularly good.

Start Michael Bush. The Rams give up a robust 6+ YPC on runs up the middle. That is Michael Bush’s calling card. With Forte  OUT Sunday, Bush will likely have a big game.

Don’t get carried away with Danny Amendola. That being said, in PPR leagues, he’s an absolutely great flex play until proven otherwise. Start him with confidence. The Bears are a bend but don’t break kind of defense and Amendola will get a lot of looks.

Sit Stephen Jackson. He’s hurt, he may not play and if he does he’s playing against a very good run defense in the Bears. If you have comparable options, sit Jackson. Daryl Richardson could make for a sneaky flex play this week if Jackson is out, but the matchup isn’t great.

Green Bay @ Seattle

Sit Cedric Benson. Cedric Benson’s bread and butter is runs up the middle. Seattle stops them to the tune of a 2.2 YPC. Seattle’s defense is extremely tough and I think the Packers will do away with the run after realizing it isn’t going anywhere.

Start Randall Cobb. This seems like a game where the Packers will throw the ball 45+ times, and Cobb will see quite a few touches out of the backfield on 3rd down. If your league accounts for return yardage, that’s even better.

Sit Greg Jennings. Apparently he had a set back and he doesn’t have a good grasp on his groin injury. He plays Monday night so unless you have Randall Cobb on your bench, it’s best to bench him now and save yourself the headache.

Even with Aaron Rodgers coming in town, do NOT switch out the Seattle defense. They can play, and they will give Rodgers some trouble. Start them with confidence.

Kansas City @ New Orleans

Dwayne Bowe had 100+ yards and 2 touchdown scores last week. Start him again. Kansas City will likely be getting blown out and there will be plenty of garbage time minutes for Bowe to boost his numbers.

Mark Ingram isn’t a good RB, and he leaves a lot to be desired but he will have some chances to score on Sunday as NO will be marching against a struggling KC defense. If you need a flex and have him on your bench, give him a shot.

Start Lance Moore. Kansas City has struggled defending the pass as well. They weren’t really tested last week as CJ Spiller went nuts, but Brees and co will test them this week. Moore will be a good play this week.

KC will be down and KC will throw, so if you’re in need of a flex, or a RB in a pinch, start Dexter McCluster (PPR leagues). He will get 5-6 grabs and maybe sneak into the endzone. If you’re in need, take a chance and start him.

QB’s Start ‘Em

Phillip Rivers @ Detroit

Rivers is getting hot for fantasy owners at the perfect time, although some owners have been bounced already because of his poor play early on this season. But he’s on top of his game now with 8 TD’s and 0 Int’s in his last four games. The Chargers are still alive in the division and will playing their hearts out against Detroit in what should be a high scoring affair. Look for Rivers to finish with solid numbers, possibly going over the 300 yard mark with 2-3 TD’s.

Matt Ryan @ New Orleans

Here is another QB who struggled early on and now is putting it altogether as the season winds down. “Matty Ice” has been melting that Ice lately as he has been ON FIRE of late with 11 TD’s in his last 4 games! Ryan has been Money! And he will continue to be money in this spot, on Monday Night indoors against the Saints. This game could be played in the 30’s and Ryan will be tossing the rock all night. Expect a 300 yard game with 2-3 TD’s from Ryan as he connects with Julio, Roddy and Tony G. Also sprinkle in a little Harry Douglas in there!

Tim Tebow @ Buffalo

Of course Timmy Tebow is gonna be in here. Has this guy let you down all year? The answer is NO! So make sure to stick with him once again and be confident in your decision. Tebow should be able to find running room as well as passing lanes in this matchup against the poor Buffalo D. Get Tebow in your lineups and don’t expect anything less than 18 fantasy points with an upside of 30-35 points. I see him finishing somewhere in the middle with around 22-24 points.

Sit ‘Em

Joe Flacco vs Cleveland

Just can’t trust Flacco here, he has been inconsistent all year while the Cleveland Secondary has been consistent ranked #3 in defending QB’s. This will be a Ray Rice type of game, avoid Flacco.

Christian Ponder @ Washington

Ponder has been a littly sloppy lately failing to throw for more than 200 yards in last two outings and throwing 4 interceptions as well. This is not an easy matchup, the Skins have been pretty decent against the pass all year ranked 14th in defending QB’s. We saw what they did to Eli Manning and their passing game last week, forcing Eli into three picks with no TD’s. Also with Adrian Peterson healthy and off the injury report, look for him to be the centerpiece of the offense once again. Can’t trust Ponder right now, been to erratic.

Carson Palmer @ Kansas City

This is gonna be a tough one for Palmer going on the road in Arrowhead in a game which should have a lot of juice, since technically the Chiefs are still alive in the AFC West. The Chiefs are coming off containing the best QB in the NFL in Aaron Rodgers for 3 quarters and playing a hell of a game on defense. Their secondary is underrated and seem to be even more inspired now with Romeo Crennel now the head coach. Look for Palmer to put up decent numbers but to struggle for the most part. There is a chance he could totally fall flat on his face so you want to look for other options.

 

RB’s Start ‘Em

Reggie Bush @ New England


If you aren’t a believer in Reggie by now, shame on you! Maybe this will make you a believer! This dude has been straight lighting it up for the past month and a half now. He has proved a lot of the doubters wrong, by running between the tackles successfully and taking on an everydown type of role. This is by far and away the best he has played in his career. I see no reason why he can’t keep it rolling here against New England, ranked 19th in defending RB’s Even if they get down early, Reggie will play a factor in the passing game. I see Reggie going over 100 total yards in this game with 4-6 catches and a possible score.  

CJ Spiller vs Denver Broncos

I have always been a fan of Spiller and I’m glad he has finally gotten a true chance to succeed. Spiller has gone over 100 total yards in two of his last three games with 2 TD’s in that span. He also has 15 catches as well in that frame. No matter what the score, Spiller can be a factor. But this game should be a slow moving, low scoring battle, with Spiller getting quite a few carries against the Denver D ranked 23rd in defending RB’s. Start him with confidence, this dude is legit.  

Rashard Mendenhall vs St. Louis

Mendy has had an off year with just one 100 yard game all season. He has also hasn’t really taken advantage of good matchups. But this is one where you just have to use him against St. Louis who have been putrid against the run this year. Also Big Ben could be out, leaving it to Charlie Batch who should be handing off plenty to Mendenhall. Look for Mendy to find the endzone this week.

Willis McGahee @ Buffalo

Willis should be fine for the game against Buffalo in what sets up to be a nice matchup for him. Buffalo is 3rd worst at defending the RB positionand the Broncos will be able to pound the run throughout the game. There is some concern about Lance Ball giving Willis some rest, but there is a good chance McGahee gets near 100 yards in this game and finds the endzone.

Sit ‘Em

Peyton Hillis @ Baltimore

Hillis had a productive game last week against Arizona, but this week it’s a whole different story. If you can, you need to bench Hillis. In his last outing against Baltimore he was held under 50 yards rushing.

Steven Jackson @ Pittsburgh

See Peyton Hillis, Brutal matchup for Jackson, avoid at all costs. His offense may see the redzone once all game.

Donald Brown @ Houston

Brown had a monster game last week rushing for 161 yards and a score, but temper expectations against Houston on Thursday Night Football. Wade Phillips has this Houston D ranked 2nd best in defending the RB position. Don’t get giddy and start Brown Thursday night, look for a safer option if you have it.

Something to think about: Benching Marshawn Lynch

We all know how good Lynch has been this year, he’s been a must-start practically every week, even proving to be matchup proof against the studly Ravens D by running for over a 100 yards with a score against them. But the 49ers D is a different animal. This D hasn’t allowed a rushing TD ALL YEAR! Why would we expect Lynch to see the endzone? I agree with the Motto go with what got you there, but If I owned Marshawn and had a guy like CJ Spiller or even a Kevin Smith, I would bench Lynch. I just don’t trust anybody against that 49ers D, especially if Patrick Willis returns, which is possible.

 

WR’s Start ‘Em

Brandon Marshall @ New England

Ok this is fairly obvious. We know how bad New England’s secondary has been and how their offense dictates their opponents to throw early and often. Marshall will produce nicely in this game, let’s just hope he doesn’t drop any TD’s this week!

Julio Jones @ New Orleans


Jones has come alive with 3 TD’s in the last two games and looks to be fully recovered from the hamstring injury. Matt Ryan is on full go right now and he should connect with Julio in this game. Very good chance Jones finds the endzone for a third straight game, get him in your lineups.

Demaryius Thomas @ Buffalo

I’ve recommended him earlier in the season and been burnt, but Thomas is now finally showing some consistency. Tebow looks better throwing the ball and Thomas has now overtaken Decker as his favorite target. Favorable matchup here against Buffalo, Thomas makes for fairly safe play in the Super Bowl. I’m thinking 5 catches for 80 yards with a possible score.

Nate Washington vs Jacksonville

Washington has had a career year in 2011. Matt Hasselbeck finds him often and that shouldn’t change this week against Jacksonville and their secondary which has been decimated by injury. They have now lost five Corners. Look for Washington to put up very nice numbers in this matchup.

Sit ‘Em

Darrius Heyward-Bey @ Kansas City

Heyward-Bey has been great the past two weeks going for over 200 yards with a score, but the matchup gets REAL this week. Brandon Flowers is one on of the best corners in the league and will be assigned to Heyward-Bey. Also as noted above, I believe Carson Palmer struggles in this matchup. Heyward-Bey has been solid the past two weeks but I think he gets contained here and held under 50 yards, Flowers matches up with him perfectly.

Anquan Boldin vs Cleveland

Joe Haden, Cleveland Browns stout pass defense, Boldin and Joe Flacco’s inconsistencies all year, leave Boldin on the bench!

Hakeem Nicks @ New York Jets

It’s uncertain who Revis will be covering, but there is a good chance he could be on Nicks for a good portion of the game. The Jets secondary looked brutal last week, but they have been sound the whole year and I think they step up here and give Eli problems. Nicks is still a stud and needs to be considered, but if you have safer options you may want to keep Nicks benched.

 

TE’s Start ‘Em

Brent Celek @ Dallas


My bad for not suggesting this guy last week, that really was a golden start against the Jets who simply cannot stop the Tight End. Hopefully you got Celek in your lineups and watched him go off for 155 yards and a score. Look for more production this week against Dalllas who have their own problems covering the Tight End giving up the 4th most amount of points to the position. Celek has been on the fantasy radar for the past month and a half and you need to stick with him again this week, he will produce.

Dustin Keller vs New York Giants

I like this spot for Keller against the G-men. The Giants, like their NFC rival Dallas, have had problems covering the Tight End as well ranked 22nd in points allowed the position. Must win game for the Jets, they need to get Keller involved. Keller should have a fairly productive game with around 5-6 catches and 60-70 yards.

Anthony Fasano @ New England

Fasano has been a decent option for the past month or so and this is another matchup to consider him in. Again the Phins will be tossing the rock, Fasano has been targeted midfield and around the goaline, we saw him score last week, let’s ride him again.

Sit ‘Em

Jacob Tamme vs Houston

Looks like Dallas Clark will miss another game, but you can’t use Tamme here. This isn’t last year, keep him benched against Houston who cover the Tight End very well ranked 3rd best.

Heath Miller vs St. Louis

Miller had a nice game on Monday night against the 49ers, but I have serious doubts about him this week. It appears Charlie Batch may play and that most likely means the Steelers will be very run-heavy. Also I’m not sure Batch can get Miller the ball. Lastly, St. Louis is the best when it comes to defending the Tight End.

Brandon Pettigrew vs San Diego

Pettigrew has been better the last two weeks after slumping a bit, but I would be weary of him this week. San Diego ranks 5th best in defending the Tight End. Also, Stafford has been spreading it around to Calvin, Titus Young and Nate Burleson. At this point of the season, I don’t trust Pettigrew.

 

IDP Start ‘Em

James Harrison, LB Pittsburgh Steelers vs St. Louis

James Harrison, coming back from suspension is very mad right now and he’s going to take it out on the Rams. What a perfect matchup for Harrison as the Rams are allowing more sacks than any other teamKellen Clemens will draw the start for the Rams at QB and he has terrible pocket presence. He will be a sitting duck when Pittsburgh throws blitzes at him. Look for Harrison to get 2-3 sacks in this game.

Aldon Smith, LB, DE, San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle


Smith was a animal on Monday night causing havoc on Big Ben all night. Look for Smith to add to his 13 sacks on the year as he is playing with a ton of confidence right now.

Jarius Byrd, S, Buffalo Bills vs Denver

Tim Tebow comes to town and that means plenty of tackle opportunities for Byrd and the Buffalo defenders. Byrd should get 8+ tackles easy in this matchup.

Sit ‘Em

John Abraham, DE, Atlanta Falcons @ NO

Abraham had 3.5 sacks last Thursday night against Blaine Gabbert, but it won’t be so easy against Drew Brees and his quick release. Keep in mind that was Abraham’s first multi-sack game since Week 1. Look for another option.

Jabari Greer, CB, New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta

Greer is a deflection machine, but has a rough matchup against two premier wideouts in Roddy White and Julio JonesMatt Ryan has also been on top of his game. Leave Greer reserved.
