2014 FantasySavvy Football: Fantasy Playoffs Week 14 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em.

By: Kevin Lewis

Shout out to Jimmy Graham for scoring as many points as I did last week. That said, time for start em/sit em.  For both daily and seasonal leagues. *Fanduel Prices.

START:

TE Kyle Rudolph, vs Jets($5200)- The Jets let up a TD per game to tight ends and let up the third most points to the position. Running the ball against the Jets for the most part is a grand waste of time and they can’t defend the pass. I like Rudolph this week especially if you want a cap relief alternative to Gronk and Jimmy Graham on Fanduel.

TE Antonio Gates, vs New England($5600)- Gates is another Gronk/Graham pivot in Fanduel. This isn’t really about any fancy numbers even though the Patriots have allowed the second most yards to tight ends. With Revis and Browner holding down the outside against the Chargers wide receivers I think Gates will be targeted a lot out of opportunity and necessity. I think a 5/75/1 line isn’t farfetched for Gates on Sunday night.

WR Kenny Stills, vs Carolina($6700)-Kenny Stills has been targeted 15 times in the two games since Brandin Cooks went down with a season ending injury. In those two games, Stills has 13 catches for 260 yards and a touchdown. The Panthers have given up the second most touchdowns to wide receivers in the NFL. I fully expect Stills to pile up the points this week.

WR Charles Johnson, vs Jets($6000)- He’s played 97% of the snaps the last three weeks and is going against a team that has allowed the most passing TDs in the league. This might be the week where Johnson cashes in for you.

WR Jarvis Landry, vs Baltimore($6900)- Mike Wallace could also fit in this space as I think he’s a decent play this week as well. I do like Landry more however and I think his floor is a little safer than Wallace. He’s been the molst heavily targeted WR on the team the last five weeks and has caught a whopping 76% of his targets. Tannehill has been really good at home and the Ravens secondary is a mash unit.

RB Jonathan Stewart, vs New Orleans($5200)- The Saints run defense has let up at least 80 yards in two of the past three weeks. He’s dirt cheap on Fanduel and DeAngelo Williams isn’t playing.

RB Daniel Herron, @Cleveland($6400) – The Browns are 18th against the run this season and Herron is the Colts primary back at this stage of the game. I like his chances against them this week.

TE Delanie Walker, vs Giants($5400)- Justin Hunter is out and the Giants are the worst team in the NFL in relation to YPC from the TE. TE is a relative wild card outside of Gronkowski and Graham but Walker feels like a pretty safe play this week.

 

SIT:

QB Colin Kaepernick, @Oakland($7200)- Once he did what he did against the Washington Redskins, he shouldn’t be on the radar to start in all honesty. The guy looks like he’s regressed as a QB and he hasn’t thrown more than one TD in a game in a month. Kaepernick is basically waiver fodder at this point in my estimation.

QB Mark Sanchez, vs Seattle($7700)- I know the narratives surrounding Sanchez and his improvement and all. Some of them are based in reality as Sanchez has been solid since taking Foles place. He still has eight turnovers in four games and him against the Seattle Seahawks defense is a mismatch.

RB Lamar Miller, vs Baltimore($6700)- The Ravens currently have street free agents playing CB. The way to beat them is through the air as Philip Rivers spotlighted last week. Even without Ngata, the Ravens should have enough talent up front to stop the run. This strikes me as a game for Ryan Tannehill to try and exploit a relatively uninspiring secondary.

RB Ryan Mathews, vs New England($7100)- The Patriots are seventh against the run this season and have allowed the second fewest rushing touchdowns in the league. Behind a line that generally struggles in run blocking, I think you can do better than Ryan Mathews this week.

TE Vernon Davis, @Oakland($4900)- It’s in my contract to list him here every week. If you made the playoffs with this guy on your roster, I just want to salute you as he’s been practically useless all year in fantasy and real life.

TE Owen Daniels, @Miami($5300)- He’s averaged 19 yards per game the last three weeks, and the Dolphins are amongst the best in the league at eliminating the tight end.  Easy pass here.

RB Entire Vikings backfield, vs Jets- Just don’t. Don’t get cute. Don’t do it to yourself

RB Denard Robinson($6700)- I think the party is basically over with Robinson as he has been quiet the last two weeks and sees a bad matchup this week against a Texans defense that’s allowed 3.6 YPC the last month. He couldn’t hack it against the Giants pathetic run defense and that’s not a good sign going forward for him

FantasySavvy Football: Week 12 Start’ Em, Sit ‘Em

By Kevin Lewis

*For both Daily and Seasonal Leagues

START EM

WR Josh Gordon, @Atlanta($7800)- This is really simple. Josh Gordon was the number 1 wide receiver in all of fantasy football last year. The Cleveland Browns are in the heat of a playoff run so don’t believe any of that pitch count nonsense coming from Mike Pettine. Happy Josh Gordon is free week!

RB Jerick McKinnon, vs Green Bay($5600)- This is dicey because Green Bay could blow these guys out and make McKinnon an afterthought. That said, the Packers run defense is suspect, and if the game remains even remotely close McKinnon could be a nice RB2 especially in PPR formats.

RB Tre Mason, @San Diego($5600)- Mason just had his first 100 yard game as a pro against a stout Denver defense. Now, he might not receive another 30+ carries this week, but the Chargers defense isn’t as good. I like him to return RB2 value this week.

TE Larry Donnell, vs Dallas($5300)- Donnell has been highly frustrating all year and as QB Eli Manning continues to struggle I understand apprehension about plugging him into the lineup. That said, Donnell had 7 catches for 90 yards the first time these two teams met and the Cowboys allow the third most fantasy points to tight ends in the NFL.

QB Colin Kaepernick, vs Washington($7300)- The Redskins just finished letting Josh McCown sauté them last week, their pass defense is a mess and this game has the makings of a blowout. Kaepernick hasn’t been particularly good from a fantasy or real life sense this season but he’s probably due for a good game. Who better to do it against than a team who made Josh McCown look like the second coming?

RB Denard Robinson, at Indianapolis($7500)- The Jaguars don’t have the talent to put forth a gameplan like New England did in an effort to beat the Colts. That said, Gray’s success last week makes me think Robinson will be a focal point in this game. A 120+ total yards and a touchdown performance is roughly what I expect from Shoelace this week.

WR Cecil Shorts, at Indianapolis($6300)- I know. I know. Two Jacksonville Jaguars in one lineup? Colts are going to score a lot of points, and there should be some garbage time and we all know that’s where Shorts shines the most.

RB Rashad Jennings, vs Dallas($6600)- He’s healthy again and he received 22 touches last week in his return to action. Dallas yields a healthy 4.4 YPC and the Giants get back standout G Geoff Schwartz this week. All signs point to a productive evening from Rashad Jennings.

SIT

QB Matthew Stafford, @New England($8200)- To integrate a little real life into this quickly, does anyone really trust Stafford on the road against an elite NFL team? I mean, the Lions have literally NEVER won under his guidance in similar situations. On the season, Stafford is the 16th best fantasy QB as he has been a massive disappointment. I just don’t trust him in this particular environment enough to start him.

RB Jonas Gray, vs Detroit($6700)- He’s a Patriot runningback, firstly. Secondly, Detroit has one of the very best run defenses in the NFL. Thirdly, don’t do it to yourself.

TE Vernon Davis, vs Washington($5000)- I’ll keep listing him here until he actually does something that gets him off this list.

WR Golden Tate, @New England,($8200)- I fully expect Tate to see a lot of Revis on Sunday as the Patriots roll coverage to Calvin Johnson’s side.  Given that I don’t think highly of his QB in this tilt either, I would probably stay away from Tate as well if you have better options to throw out there.

RB Fred Jackson, vs New York Jets (in Detroit, $6500)- Simply put, the Jets are the third best running unit in football and it’s been proven that they are vulnerable to the pass. Fred is a plug and pray RB3/flex at best this week. Bonus: He has one rushing touchdown in 11 contests against the Jets.

WR Percy Harvin, @Buffalo Bills(Detroit), ($6400)- As much as the Jets are forcefeeding the ball to him and they’re playing in a dome, Vick should be running for his life all game. The Bills pass rush is potent and Vick is known for holding on to the ball too long. I’d probably avoid Harvin this week.

QB Andy Dalton, @Houston, ($8200)- He’s had two good games all year. JJ Watt is employed by the Texans. There are better plays in both daily and seasonal leagues

RB Trent Richardson, vs Jacksonville($5700)- I know, I know. The whole backfield is his at the moment and he’s playing against a bad Jaguars team. I understand if you start him but the guy is so bad at football. Do you really wanna put your faith in him?
