FantasySavvy 2012: Week 16 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em (Super Bowl Edition)

As seen on FP911.com, make sure to check there for tons of great additional information.

Congratulations, you made it to your Super Bowl, this is what it is all about. All the research, pickups, lineup decisions, etc, come down to this moment. Regardless of what happens this week, you have had a very successful season and have done a great job managing your team. I hope you all of you that are reading this take care of business this week and finish the deal. Thanks for reading everybody and I hope to see you all back next season. Also, I would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This is truly the best time of the year.

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

Andrew Luck @ Kansas City

Luck has been held under 200 yards passing in his last two games, but he’s going to break out of that against the Chiefs. The Colts are going to get a ton of opportunities with the ball since the Chiefs offense is so inept. Look for Luck to approach 250 yards with at least two TD’s.

Colin Kaepernick @ Seattle

Tough matchup here, but Kaepernick still is worthy of starting. He may be held to just one passing TD, but Kaep will likely approach at least 40 yards rushing and should be able to pass for over 200 making him a solid fantasy play.

Sam Bradford @ Tampa Bay

Danny Amendola returns and Bradford throws for 377 yards and three TD’s. Bradford should continue to wheel and deal against the Bucs horrible secondary, ranked dead last in points allowed to QB’s. Expect around 250 yards passing with at least two TD’s.

Sit ‘Em

Jay Cutler @ Arizona

The Cards are third best against QB’s and Jay Cutler is having a very mediocre season. While the Bears may get a ton of possessions in this game, Cutler can not be trusted.

Josh Freeman vs St. Louis

Freeman fooled all of us, it appears he is the average QB he has always been. I didn’t want to believe in this guy, but after he went on such a hot stretch mid-year I thought he had turned a corner. However, after last week where he could not even manage to produce a single point for the Bucs offense against the Saints defense, it is pretty apparent this guy does not have what it takes to take that next step. You can not turn back to this guy this week, not in the Fantasy Super Bowl.

Russell Wilson vs San Francisco

Wilson is having a stellar rookie season with 21 TD’s, just nine interceptions and nearly 3,000 yards passing. It’s pretty hard to recommend benching him this week after he accounted for four TD’s last week, but this isn’t the Bills, it’s the 49ers. Last time he faced them he struggled completing just nine passes, throwing for just 123 yards with no TD’s. He most likely will play better this time around, but there is a chance he could be held without a TD once again.

Running Backs

Start ‘Em

DeMarco Murray vs New Orleans

DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys

Murray being out for several weeks may have been a blessing in disguise for the Cowboys with Murray now being fresh and running hard as ever. This is just an excellent matchup for DM this week and I really forsee a monster game from him. His physical style matches up perfectly against this Saints defense. Murray should easily go over 100 yards and finish with at least 1 TD.

Vick Ballard @ Kansas City

Ballard now has the starting job all to himself and is taking full advantage of it. He is a fairly talented back and he should enjoy a nice game against the Chiefs. I expect him to find the endzone and approach and possibly have over 100 yards rushing. He ran for 100 yards against the Texans; he can easily do it against the Chiefs.

DeAngelo Williams vs Oakland

After years of just pure Fantasy Horribleness, DeAngelo Williams has once again returned to Fantasy relevancy. He is actually starting to run with purpose and is getting the job done for Fantasy Owners. Well, with Oakland coming up, you really can’t ask for a better matchup. Now, DeAngelo does still have the potential to burn you, but I think it’s safe to say he should finish with around 100 total yards in this game and has a decent chance to find the endzone. The Panthers offense is rolling right now and DeAngelo is going to continue to benefit.

Sit ‘Em

Bryce Brown vs Washington

LeSean McCoy owners, such as myself, wish he had come back sooner after Brown threw up two duds in a row; but with the news McCoy will in fact return this week, Brown needs to be on benches. I wouldn’t expect any more than 10 touches, but he may not even get that, the fumbling problems are going to cost him playing time in this game.

Beanie Wells vs Chicago

Beanie went off for three TD’s last week against Detroit, but please don’t start him against the Bears. This has 15 carries for 40 yards written all over it. Stay away.

Jonathan Dwyer vs Cincinnati

Dwyer is still technically the starter, but isn’t seeing many carries with just 15 in his last two games and is not playing at a high level. He has scored in two of his last three games, but against the Bengals tough front four he needs to be avoided.

Wide Receivers

Start ‘Em

Steve Smith vs Oakland

Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith

After a extremely slow start to the season, Steve Smith has been heating up the last few weeks as Cam Newton’s play has stepped up. Smith has two 100-yard games and two TD’s in his last three games and has an excellent matchup against Oakland. Smith could have his best game of the season.

Cecil Shorts & Justin Blackmon vs New England

Both are strong options in a game where the Jags are going to be throwing the ball all day long. Cecil Shorts is the better option from Blackmon, but both should be able to put up respectable numbers and get it done for your Fantasy Squads. Look for Shorts to hit 100 yards and Blackmon to near that mark as well.

Michael Crabtree @ Seattle

Crabtree continues to be targeted heavily by Kaepernick every week and he needs to be in your lineups in the Fantasy Super Bowl. Crabtree has 23 targets, two 100-yard games and two TD’s in his last three games.

Sit ‘Em

Josh Gordon & Greg Little @ Denver

I would steer clear from both of these guys this week, especially Little, with the Browns facing Champ Bailey in coverage and the Broncos pass rush. After a slow start, Denver has creeped it’s way all the way to seventh best at defending the WR position.

Larry Fitzgerald vs Chicago

Tip for next year: Avoid WR’s who play with horrible QB’s. Fitzgerald has been a disaster this season with the likes of John Skelton, Kevin Kolb and Ryan Lindley throwing him the ball. Despite the name and although you may be desperate this week, try to steer clear from Fitz against the Bears.

Danario Alexander @ New York Jets

Danario killed owners last week by putting up the infamous doughnut, but if you were lucky enough to advance despite his performance, you need to look at benching him this week. Antonio Cromartie has done an excellent job all season on No. 1 WR’s and he should be able to contain Alexander.

Tight Ends

Start ‘Em

Greg Olsen vs Oakland

Like they do with every other position, the Raiders also let up a ton of points to Tight Ends, ranked 4th worst. Olsen has been extremely steady the past six weeks with four 50 yard games and and four TD’s. Start him with confidence.

Dennis Pitta vs New York Giants

I faced Dennis Pitta in two leagues last week who went off for 100 yards and two TD’s and you can guess how that turned out. Unbelievable. But Pitta needs to stay in your lineups as Flacco will continue to look his way, especially in the redzone. Pitta has 19 targets and three TD’s in his last two games.

Antonio Gates @ New York Jets

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates

Being a Jet fan, I know how bad they have been historically at covering Tight Ends. Their LB’s just don’t have the speed or athleticism to keep up with the athletic Tight Ends of the league. Gates finally got back into the endzone last week and I expect him to put up respectable numbers against the Jets. Look for around 60-70 yards with a possible score.

Sit ‘Em

Joel Dreesen & Jacob Tamme vs Cleveland

These guys hurt each other’s value and it’s hard to predict which one will have the bigger impact each week. Regardless, both have been mediocre all year. The Browns are also 5th best at defending the Tight End position.

Kyle Rudolph @ Houston

After scoring in three consecutive games, Rudolph hasn’t scored and has just 23 yards receiving in his last two games. Christian Ponder is playing pretty awful at this point in the season and Rudolph isn’t going to contribute for you team unless he scores. He’s way too risky to use, look for something more consistent.

IDP’s

Start ‘Em

London Fletcher @ Philadelphia

London Fletcher, Washington Redskins

Fletcher has had another strong season with 52 tackles for the Skins and now faces the Eagles who are allowing the most points to LB’s.

Wesley Woodward vs Cleveland

Woodward has been a force for the Denver defense all season and is a great play against the Browns who are allowing the 8th most points to Fantasy LB’s.

Sit ‘Em

Cortland Finnegan @ Green Bay

Bad matchup for Finnegan who will be squaring off against the talented Packers WR’s and Aaron Rodgers who is extremely smart with the football.

Richard Sherman vs San Francisco

Sherman will be limited this week as the 49ers aren’t turning the ball over much and are allowing the 2nd fewest amount points to CB’s.

FantasySavvy 2012: Week 11 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em

As seen on FP911.com, make sure to check there for tons of great info and test your daily Fantasy skills at FP911challenge.com. 

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

Cam Newton vs Tampa Bay

Newton will begin his strong finish to the season starting this game against the Bucs who have been brutal all season against the pass. Newton will payback his owners this week with a very nice performance.

Carson Palmer vs New Orleans

Palmer is getting it done this year with 15 TD’s so far and has six of em in his last two. Palmer is also tossing the rock around like a icelandian harpoon thrower averaging 41 attempts per game! This will be a passing fest come Sunday between Brees and Palmer and Carson is a excellent play.

Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Miami

Was going to put Andrew Luck here, but since I went Palmer and Fig Newtonalready I’ll go with something a little less obvious in Fitzy. If your a Big Ben,Vick, or Cutler owner and are looking for a good spot play, go with Fitzpatrick against the Phins who are allowing 11th most points to Fantasy QB’s.

Sit ‘Em

Alex Smith vs Chicago

Smith is coming off a concussion and although he will likely play he can’t be started, even in two QB leagues.

Phillip Rivers @ Denver

The Denver defense has been surging of late and I don’t trust Rivers on the road against the Broncos in this game.  The Broncos have held opposing QB’s under 20 points in their last four games.

Joe Flacco @ Pittsburgh

Flacco was a recommended start last week as he went off against the Raiders throwing for 341 yards and three TD’s; but this week he needs to be benched. The Pittsburgh defense has been 2nd best against Fantasy QB’s and will be fired up on Sunday Night in this divsional rival matchup.

Running Backs

Start ‘Em

C.J. Spiller vs Miami

C.J. Spiller, Buffalo Bills

With Fred Jackson OUT Thursday night, C.J. Spiller will get full reign. The matchup isn’t great against Miami, but C.J. Spiller needs to be started against any defense when he’s all alone in the backfield.

Reggie Bush @ Buffalo

Bush has not looked good for several weeks now. Fumbles have been a problem which led to him getting benched last Sunday, his YPC has been down and now Daniel Thomas is getting nearly the same amount of carries each game. Bush has only one 100-yard game all season which was in Week 2. However things should get better for Reggie and it should come this week against the Bills who are giving up the most points to Fantasy RB’s. Last year Bush ran for over 200 yards against the Bills, so get him in your lineups.

Darren Sproles, Chris Ivory @ Oakland

Sproles has been practicing this week and it appears he will be ready to go on Sunday. If he’s a go start him against Oakland who are allowing the 3rd most points to Fantasy Backs. As far as Ivory if Sproles is OUT he is a must start, but even if Sproles plays Ivory could should still get a fair amount of carries and has been impressive with his increased role the past few weeks, finding paydirt twice.

Sit ‘Em

Michael Turner vs Arizona

Turner usually takes advantage of great matchups, but he was absolute dud against the Saints and their terrible Run D. It’s hard to trust Turner after that game and going against Arizona who can actually defend the run ranked 6th best against RB’s, you need to consider benching him. In Fantasy Football, their are few things worse than a 15 carry, 38-yard type of game from your starting RB.

Ryan Mathews @ Denver

Mathews has failed to live up the hype once again and has done nothing of note in 2012. He has yet to have a 100-yard game and Ronnie Brown is  looking like the better option on third downs. Don’t continue to die with Mathews if you don’t have to, if you have something else that’s reasonable take a shot.

Willis McGahee vs San Diego

McGahee is another RB who has frustrated his owners this season. He has failed continously in good matchups and is constantly putting the putting the ball on the ground. Last week Ronnie Hillman stole a TD from him and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Hillman start getting the rock more going forward. Willis needs to show us owners that he is ready to perform at a high level again before we put him back in our lineups.

Wide Receivers

Start ‘Em

Stevie Johnson vs Miami

Johnson is what he is, inconsistent. Not really to his doing, but moreso to Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s. Last week in a great matchup vs New England, Johnson had six catches for 86 yards and I expect similar numbers against Miami who are allowing the 5th most points to Fantasy WR’s. Johnson has yet to have a 100-yard game this season but has found the endzone four times and I expect him to score tonight.

Darrius Heyward-Bey vs New Orleans

Darrius Heyward-Bey, Oakland Raiders

Heyward-Bey is starting to come alive in his last two games with 10 catches for 150 yards and a TD. With the Saints coming to town, Bey should keep it rolling. Go snatch him up if he’s out there on your waiver wire and start him this week if you need a WR.

Donnie Avery and T.Y. Hilton @ New England

This is going to be a showdown between Luck and Bradyand pretty much everyone in this game is a quality start. Avery is 18th in the league with 75 targets so he’s the better option over Hilton, but T.Y. should get it done as well. Expect Luck to easily chuck it over 40 times.

Sit ‘Em

Josh Gordon @ Dallas

After scoring four TD’s in three games, Gordon has come back to earth in his last two games being held under 50 yards in both games. Things most likely will not improve against Dallas and their tough secondary ranked 10th best against Fantasy WR’s.

Torrey Smith @ Pittsburgh

I don’t trust Flacco against the Steelers, so therefore I don’t trust Smith against Pittsburgh who are allowing the fewest points to Fantasy WR’s.

Dez Bryant vs Cleveland

The Browns secondary was one of the best last season and after struggling early this season they have since rebounded since the return of CB Joe Haden from his four-game suspension. I’m a little weary of throwing Bryant out there this week matching up against Haden who is one of the best corners in the league.

Tight Ends 

Start ‘Em

Greg Olsen vs Tampa Bay

Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers

The Panthers and Cam Newton realized last week that they need to start getting the ball to Olsen more with Brandon LaFell failing to step up as that 2nd option behind Steve Smith. Olsen has been targeted 19 times in his last two games and has 14 catches for over 150 yards with two TD’s. Get him going against Tampa Bay who Cam will have a very joyous game against.

Dwayne Allen @ New England

Coby Fleener will be OUT once again so Allen will get the full array of snaps against the Pats who are allowing the 3rd most points to Fantasy Tight Ends. Look for Allen to finish with 5-6 catches and close to 80 yards.

Brandon Myers vs New Orleans

Myers left last weeks game early due to a concussion, but is practicing this week and expected to play. Myers has been targeted 20 times in his last two games and is pretty much a sure bet for at least 50 yards, making him a reasonable play almost every week.

Sit ‘Em

Dennis Pitta @ Pittsburgh

After being dormant for five straight weeks, Pitta returned to fantasy relevance with 67 yards and a TD last week. Unfortunately it’s back to the closet with Mush and Frankie Coffee Cakes for Pitta this week against the Steelers.

Heath Miller vs Baltimore

With Big Ben, Miller was one of the best Fantasy Tight Ends this year, but now with Byron Leftwich starting this week it remains to be seen how much Miller will be able to contribute. I would keep him reserved until Leftwich proves he can get Miller the rock.

Scott Chandler vs Miami

Chandler also returned to fantasy prominence  last week after weeks of doing nothing. However, his 65 yards and a touch came against New England, it won’t be the same against Miami who are 13th best against Fantasy Tight Ends.  Chandler is really only worth starting in PLUS matchups.

IDP’s

Start ‘Em

Aldon Smith vs Chicago

Aldon Smith, San Francisco 49ers

Smith has been red hot the past few weeks and has another nice matchup against the Bears who have allowed the 5th most sacks in the NFL.

Jo-Lonn Dunbar vs New York Jets

Dunbar has been a tackle machine for the Rams with 47 of them and he should continue to rack them up against the Jets who will pound the run and maintain a short passing game.

Sit ‘Em

Quentin Jammer @ Denver

Don’t trust Jammer against Peyton ManningDemaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, keep him reserved in this brutal matchup.

Patrick Peterson @ Atlanta

Peterson has a rough matchup as well against Julio JonesRoddy and Ryan. Unless your league rewards return yards, keep Peterson benched.

FantasySavvy 2012: Week 9 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em

As seen on FantayPros911.com. Make sure to check there for tons of great fantasy info. Despite the storm and it’s effects we should have a radio show tomorrow evening and have our rankings out on Saturday night. Thanks to all the readers.

First, I want to say I hope that all our readers affected by Sandy are safe. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. This storm was truly devastating to many people including ravaging my home state of New Jersey. It is very sad to see areas that I experienced many memories, now destroyed. The Jersey Shore is a special place to many and it may not be the same for a while. I also feel for the people in Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island, Maryland, Connecticut, and all the other areas that were severely affected.

As we look to bounce back from this tragedy, I know many people will be looking to escape from all the stories on the news and get their mind away from thinking about the storm. This is where sports is great, it helps us get our minds off the present conditions for a little while and enjoy something we love. In a time like this Fantasy Football can seem truly insignificant, but at the same time it provides a good outlet to make things seem normal again, even for a few hours. Due to the storm, this weeks start ‘em, sit ‘em will be somewhat of an express version. I have also been affected by the storm and haven’t been able to prepare for this article as I normally would have. If you guys have any questions you can always hit me up at SteveDeAngelo@gmail.com or @FantasySavvy on twitter. Everybody keep your heads up and enjoy this weekend of Football. God Bless.

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

Cam Newton @ Washington Redskins

Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers

I mentioned last week that this is the perfect time to trade for Cam Newton. He just went through a brutal stretch in his schedule playing Dallas, Seattle and the Bears, but now his schedule eases up bigtime. In one of my leagues, I just saw him get traded for Matt Schaub! Make sure you put out some offers before Sunday and if you acquire Cam, start him Sunday. He is going to have a solid finish to the season.

Matt Schaub vs Buffalo

Schaub hasn’t been great this year, but against Buffalo and their swiss defense, he’s a very solid play. Look for close to 300 yards passing and at least 2 TD’s.

Michael Vick @ New Orleans

I may be crazy, but I am contemplating starting Vick over Aaron Rodgers this week. The New Orleans defense is that awful. They are giving up the most fantasy points and are on track to being one of the worst defenses of all-time. Vick is battling for his job, but expect him to produce nicely in this game.

Sit ‘Em

Christian Ponder @ Seattle

Ponder was hot a few weeks ago, but has now has come back to reality. He needs to be benched in all formats.

Matt Hasselbeck vs Chicago

Hasselbeck will continue to start with Jake Locker out, but stay away from him against Chicago.

Joe Flacco @ Cleveland

Cleveland’s secondary is currently ranked 28th in points allowed to QB’s, but remember Joe Haden was out for four weeks. Since his return they have been stingy against QB’s and completely shut down Phillip Rivers last week. This was a Browns secondary that was one of the best statistically last year.  Flacco has also returned to his normal shenanigans, keep him on your benches.

Running Backs

Start ‘Em

Jamaal Charles @ San Diego

Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs

Normally a player of Charles’ caliber would not be on this list, but since Charles has struggled in his last two games and got just five carries last week, you may need to be reminded to start him. Against the Raiders I believe the Chiefs rested Charles after the game got away, knowing they had a short-week ahead of them. Expect Charles to be the focal point of the offense against San Diego and to produce. Charles will most likely get around 20-25 carries tonight. Make sure he is active, you can never bench a player as talented as him.

Willis McGahee @ Cincy

Continue to roll out Willis in matchups like this. Cincy has been bad against the run ranking 27th in Fantasy points allowed to RB’s, so McGahee will enjoy a nice day. The Broncos have a very nice schedule ahead of them, so he also is a nice trade target.

Joique Bell @ Jacksonville

Bell surprisingly got the majority of the second half touches last week against Seattle and showed his versatility. With Mikel LeShoure questionable for this week, Bell could get a boatload of touches against a weak Jacksonville defense. This looks like a good plug and play for Week 9.

Sit ‘Em

Alex Green vs Arizona

Alex Green is about to lose his job, this guy just has not taken advantage of his opportunities. Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy has already said that James Starks will get more looks this week. Trade Green if you can, because after this week he may have no more value.

Donald Brown vs Miami

Brown is back healthy, but it looks now that he and Vick Ballard will share the backfield. This matchup is also rough this week against a stout Miami run D so keep Brown benched.

Chris Johnson vs Chicago

Johnson has succeeded in tough matchups vs the Texans and Steelers, but Chicago is a different animal to me. I think he struggles mightily in this game and is held under 80 total yards without a score.

Wide Receivers

Start ‘Em

Steve Smith @ Washington

After doing nothing for consecutive weeks, it was good to see Smith succeed in a tough matchup against the Bears by going over 100 yards. This week he is a must-start against the Skins. He will abuse their secondary.

Dwayne Bowe @ San Diego

With Brady Quinn at QB Bowe is hard to trust, but with Cassel playing tonight Bowe needs to be back in Fantasy lineups. The Chargers are also 10th worst in points given up to Fantasy WR’s.

Denarius Moore vs Tampa Bay

Denarius Moore, Oakland Raiders

Denarious has been beasting of late finding the endzone for three straight weeks. Palmer will have success against Tampa Bay and their vunerable secondary ranked third worst in fantasy points allowed to WR’s, so get Moore in your lineups.

Sit ‘Em

Torrey Smith @ Cleveland

I mentioned the return of Joe Haden to the Browns secondary and how it spells bad news for Joe Flacco. Well, Haden could be lined up against Smith for much of this matchup. Reserve him.

Malcom Floyd vs Kansas City

I know owners sometimes get giddy and want to start their players in primetime games, but you need to be patient. Floyd has one TD all season, Rivers has not looked good and Floyd will be matched up with Chiefs stud CB Brandon Flowers. Be weary of starting Floyd tonight.

Kenny Britt vs Chicago

Britt was held under 40 yards receiving in favorable matchups against Buffalo and Indy, so no reason to expect him to succeed against Chicago. Britt is still working his way back from his injuries and has not looked like the same player to me.

Tight Ends

Start ‘Em

Jermaine Gresham vs Denver

Good spot to start Gresham here coming off their bye and facing Denver who are 4th worst at defending the Tight End position.

Greg Olsen @ Washington

Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers

The Skins defense is hot garbage as we all know, so Olsen has a great shot to thrive in this game.

Dwayne Allen vs Miami

With Coby Fleener out abut two weeks, Allen has full reigns at Tight End for the Colts. If you need a tight end this week, the talented rookie is a decent option.

Sit ‘Em

Dennis Pitta @ Cleveland

Maybe some owners are expecting to bounce back after the Ravens bye week, but don’t expect it to happen against the Browns who are third best against Fantasy Tight Ends.

Martellus Bennett vs Pittsburgh

Bennett has worn down after a strong start to the season and can’t be trusted against Pittsburgh. Wait for him to show up once again before putting him back in lineups.

Brandon Pettigrew @ Jacksonville

Sit the overrated Pettigrew against the Jaguars who are allowing the 5th fewest points to Fantasy Tight Ends.

IDP’s

Start ‘Em

Chad Greenway @ Seattle

Richard Sherman vs Minnesota

Richard Sherman, Seattle Seahawks

Akeem Ayers vs Chicago

Sit ‘Em

Antrel Rolle vs Pittsburgh

Greg Hardy @ Washington

Patrick Peterson @ Green Bay

FantasySavvy 2012: Week 4 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

As seen on FP911.com. Make sure to check there for tons of great information. Also make sure to check our radio show tonight at 12 est directly following the game at blogtalkradio.com/fantasysavvy. Or you can download the show and listen on any apple device or directly from the site.

Week three, and all it’s craziness are in the books. The replacement refs will return for tonight’s game between the Ravens and Browns and maybe they can return some sanity. The regular Refs will return and no doubt will be praised early on even if they make some horrible calls initially, but eventually, just like all refs, they will be bashed and harassed and we may even demand the replacement refs back! While I didn’t think the replacement refs were good, there was definitely a lot overreaction in the media in my opinion. But the good news is, you don’t have replacement writers here at Fp911. My Girlfriend will not be filling in for me this week, nor will my Aunt Cindy be making my selections. No, no, there will be none of that. I am here and would never compromise our product. Paul Greco Dan Stack, Dan Leason, Colin Hager, Chuck Anderson and the rest of the guys are all here and will remain here week to week to provide you with the best Fantasy Football information we possibly can.

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

Peyton Manning vs Oakland

I’ve been off on Manning for two weeks in a row, but this week I “guarantee” I will be right as he will produce nicely for your fantasy teams. Manning got the job done last week against an extremely tough Texan defense by throwing for 330 yards with two TD’s and has been great at home thus far throwing for nearly 600 yards with 4 TD’s and no INT’s. He stays in Denver this week against Oakland and should have his way against this secondary that is ranked 27th overall in defending Fantasy QB’s.

Joe Flacco vs Cleveland

Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens

Cleveland’s secondary is just not the same without Stud CB Joe Haden and it’s showing in the numbers. The last two weeks they’ve been eaten up by Andy Dalton and Ryan Fitzpatrick and as a result are ranked 28th against Fantasy QB’s. Flacco may not have a huge yardage night but expect him to finish with around 250 yards passing with at least 2 TD’s.

Andy Dalton @ Jacksonville

Dalton could be coming into his own this season throwing back to back 300-yard three touchdown games. The matchups have helped against a Joe Haden less Browns secondary and an injury riddled Skins team, but nonetheless he’s producing at a high level. Jacksonville’s secondary hasn’t been bad this year ranked 10th overall against Fantasy QB’s, but I am a believer in Dalton and his weapons. The Bengals should have plenty of possessions with Blaine Gabbert’s ineffectiveness, so look for Dalton to get plenty of chances to score and find the endzone a few times.

Sit ‘Em

Jay Cutler @ Dallas

Cutler has been brutal after his big Week 1 showing, being held under 200 yards twice while throwing just 1 TD with 5 INT’s. Unfortunately for Jay, it does not get much easier against Dallas and their new and improved secondary. Dallas is currently allowing the fewest points to Fantasy QB’s and they will stay atop the charts after facing Cutler.

Jake Locker @ Houston

Locker was terrific against Detroit in Week three throwing for 378 with two TD’s, but the sledding gets rough this week against the Texans. I would not expect him to fare well against this top defense, so I advise you to keep the youngster reserved in this matchup.

Cam Newton @ Atlanta

Let’s hope this is the first and last time we have to put Newton on this list this season, but if he continues to play like he did last week against the Giants we might be seeing him here more often. Atlanta’s secondary has been great ranked 5th best in defending Fantasy QB’s as CB’s Asante Samuel and Dunta Robinson have been holding it down in the absence of CB Brent Grimes. Cam Newton also doesn’t have have great numbers against the Falcons with just two TD’s and 5 INT’s. You may not have a better option than Cam on your bench, but if you do, consider reserving him in this game.

Running Backs

Start ‘Em

Stevan Ridley @ Buffalo

Ridley was taken out of the gameplan last week against Baltimore but should return this week against Buffalo. The Patriots should be running often in this game as they should hold the lead for the majority of the game. Look for Ridley to approach 100 yards rushing and have a couple shots to reach the endzone.

Ryan Mathews @ Kansas City

Ryan Mathews, San Diego Chargers

Mathews made his 2012 season debut last week, but was somewhat limited in his return from his shoulder injury. It also didn’t help that the Chargers got blown out and Mathews didn’t have a chance to really produce. Expect Mathews to get going against Kansas City as he gets it done in both the passing and running game. I expect over 100 total yards with 4 to 5 catches and a possible score.

Cedric Benson @ New Orleans

To my surprise, Benson has been fairly involved in the Packers offense. He’s received nearly 40 carries in his last two games and is even catching some passes out of the backfield. He should definitely be in the gameplan this week against New Orleans and their last ranked Rush Defense. Benson should approach 100 yards and find the endzone in what will be a shootout at the Superdome.

Sit ‘Em

Chris Johnson @ Houston

If you have traded Chris Johnson, I can’t blame you with his atrocious 1.4 yards per carry. I mean what the hell happened to this dude? 1.4  ypc? I’m pretty sure you and I could go out there and average at least 2 yards per carry. Anyway if you can’t deal him he needs to remain benched until proven otherwise, plus, this matchup sucks. Hopefully Jake Locker continues to emerge this season and helps open up some holes for him.

Steven Jackson vs Seattle

Here is another guy that you will regret drafting. I spoke on it last week, I never understand the infatuation with this guy. I ranted on it already, but steer clear of Jackson against Seattle. The Seahawks defense is legit.

Ryan Williams vs Miami

Good news for Williams owners as Beanie Wells will be out until November with a turf toe injury. Williams also showed some life against Philly by rushing for 83 yards on 13 carries. But, keep Williams benched this week against Miami and their top 10 Run Defense.

Wide Receivers

Start ‘Em

Vincent Jackson vs Washington

Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Bucs

Jackson was a recommended sit last week against the Cowboys but he is a must-start against this injury decimated Washington Defense. The Skins secondary has allowed the most points to Fantasy WR’s in 2012 getting torched by Danny Amendola and A.J. Green the last two weeks.

Brandon Lloyd @ Buffalo

Lloyd and Brady are looking better and better every week and It could finally all come together in Buffalo. Lloyd has seen 25 combined targets the last two weeks and look for Brady to look his way often again on Sunday. Lloyd doesn’t have a score so far and only has one 100-yard game so there is still some time to buy low.

Torrey Smith vs Cleveland

I had Smith on my sit list last week, but had I known he was going to play despite his brothers death, I would of recommended him. We see it a lot where something tragic happens to these players and they go out, play and have a special performance. Much respect to Smith who went off for two TD’s against New England. After a slow start to the season I expect last week’s game to catapult Smith and he should enjoy another nice game tonight.

Sit ‘Em

Nate Washington @ Houston

There is that Houston defense again. Washington had an amazing catch last week which went for a TD, but reserve him in this game.

Brandon Marshall @ Dallas

Brandon Carr shutdown Vincent Jackson last week and I expect him to matchup with Brandon Marshall this week and contain him as well. Cutler has been brutal, the Dallas secondary has been superb, stay away from Marshall.

Danny Amendola vs Seattle

Amendola was slowed down against Chicago after he exploded against Washington and he could be slowed even more against Seattle and their physical corners. Brandon Browner and Co. will be up in the face of Amendola and I expect him to struggle. I like Amendola, I hate this matchup.

Tight Ends

Start ‘Em

Kyle Rudolph @ Detroit

Rudolph has 3 TD’s already this year and is proving to be Christian Ponder‘s favorite redzone target. Look for Rudolph to produce against the Lions who are allowing the 2nd most point to Fantasy Tight Ends.

Dennis Pitta vs Cleveland

Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens

Pitta seems to be Joe Flacco‘s favorite option and it shows in the targets numbers as Pitta leads all Baltimore receivers with 31. Pitta should enjoy another nice game against Cleveland and is turning into an every week start.

Owen Daniels vs Tennessee

Daniels is finally healthy and has been steady so far this year. He finally reached the endzone last week and could return there again facing the Titans who are allowing the most points to Fantasy Tight Ends.

Sit ‘Em

Jared Cook @ Houston

Cook is the the 4th Titan to make the sit em list this week. Cook got into the endzone last week, but did come off a fluky big play. I expect Cook to remain inconsistent this year and he needs to be benched in unfavorable matchups such as this one.

Jason Witten vs Chicago

I thought Witten would get off the schnide last week, but he disappointed once again. Romo probably won’t have a bigtime game against Chicago, so that should mean Witten most likely will struggle again. Things will get better for Witten, but he needs to show it first before you start reinserting him back into your lineups.

Fred Davis @ Tampa Bay

After two slow weeks to start the season, Davis enjoyed a nice game last week going for 90 yards on seven catches. I’m still not convinced he’s going to be a favorite of RG3 this year or at least not right away so I am sitting him this week. Tampa Bay is also in the top 10 at defending the Tight End position.

IDP

Start ‘Em

Chris Clemons @ St. Louis

The undrafted Clemons had a monster game last week against Green Bay sacking Aaron Rodgers four times. Clemons has a great matchup against the Rams who allowed the most sacks in the league last year and are allowing the 2nd most sacks this year. Expect another nice performance.

Ed Reed vs Cleveland

Ed Reed, Baltimore Ravens

Ed Reed vs Brandon Weeden on National TV? Look for Reed to pick off Weeden at least once and possibly take one to the house.

Sit ‘Em

Cliff Avril vs Minnesota

Avril hasn’t gotten off to the start many people expected with just one sack this season after finishing with eleven last year. Keep him benched until he proves last season wasn’t a fluke.

Derrick Morgan @ Houston

Arian Foster and Ben Tate will be centerfolding this offense as usual, so Morgan won’t have many sack opportunities on Matt Schaub. The Texans offensive line has also allowed the 3rd fewest sacks.
