Week 10: Start’em/Sit’em

Here are some players that you may be going back and forth on starting or siting in your Fantasy this week. Granted players like Tom Brady, Odell Beckham Jr and Ezekiel Elliot should all start this week. This is just a few players ho may bust or bring him gold. 

Quarterback:

  • Start’em
    • Ben Roethlisberger (vs. DAL): The Cowboys are without two starters on defense Morris Claiborne (groin) and safety Barry Church (arm). They have also given up at least 20 points to four quarterbacks this year. Only one legit quarterback struggled against the Cowboys and that’s Aaron Rodgers.
    • Dak Prescott (at PIT): Tony Romo was cleared to play but Prescott with remain the starter. He is eager to keep his spot so he is going to play very smart. The Steelers have allowed four quarterbacks to scored at least 20 points this season. Prescott has been on a roll and the least he has scored is 21 points. He is a double threat with his ability to run the ball.
    • Jameis Winston (vs. CHI): Winston has become a strong quarterback as of late. He is averaging 22 points right now. This may not be Winston’s best game of the year but look at him as a low-end No. 1 quarterback this week.
    • Other QBs: Marcus Mariota (vs. GB), Carson Palmer (vs. SF)
    • Sleepers: Jay Cutler (at. TB), Joe Flacco (vs. CLE), Trevor Siemian (at NO)
  • Sit’em
    • Kirk Cousins (vs. MIN): The Vikings are still elite on defense. They have yet to allow a quarterback to get more than 19 points. Cousins will be missing his #1 target in DeSean Jackson.
    • Ryan Tannehill (at SD): The Dolphins are run heavy right now. I don’t think they have much faith in Tannehill and his throwing ability. He hasn’t scored 20 points since Week 2. He just doesn’t have the juice right now, Jay Ajayi does.
    • Colin Kaepernick (at ARI): Arizona limited some top quarterbacks like Cam Newton and and Russell Wilson to only 15 points. Kaepernick doesn’t compare to those guys right now and he doesn’t have a lot of offensive weapons.
    • Others: Blake Bortles (vs. HOU), Andy Dalton (at NYG)

Running Backs:

  • Start’em:
    • Terrance West (vs. CLE): It’s Cleveland should I say more. They have allowed running backs to scored in seven straight games and have allowed 13 touchdowns in that time span.
    • Jordan Howard (at TB): Howard was dominant in week 8 against the Vikings with 26 carries for 153 and a touchdown and four catches for 49 yards. He scored 25 points and Tampa Bay isn’t the Vikings.
    • Others: Mark Ingram (vs. DEN), Devontae Booker (at NO), Darren Sproles (vs. ATL)
    • Sleepers: Chris Ivory (vs. HOU), Dion Lewis (vs. SEA), C.J. Prosise (at NE), Matt Asiata (at WAS), Andre Elington (vs. SF)
  • Sit’em
    • Ryan Mathews (vs. ATL): Mathews is scoring touchdowns but he isn’t getting a lot of carries. He had nine carries for 25 yards and two touchdowns for 1 yard combined against Dallas and the Giants. He isn’t getting enough work to call him a quality Fantasy option.
    • Isaiah Crowell (at BAL): The Ravens defense has improved since Crowell faced them in Week 2. They have only allowed two running backs to run for more than 60 yards and Crowell is one of them and Matt Forte is the other in Week 7.
    • Others: DuJuan Harris (at ARI), Rob Kelley (vs. MIN), Christine Michael (at NE)

Wide Receivers:

  • Start’em:
    • Alshon Jeffery (at TB): Tampa Bay has allowed four touchdowns to wide receivers in two games against Oakland and Atlanta and five receivers have scored double digits.
    • Larry Fitzgerald (vs. SF): Fitzgerald has had amazing history against the 49ers. The 49ers defense has given up touchdowns to multiple receivers in seven straight games. I like John Brown and J.J Nelson in this match up as well.
    • Others: Tyrell Williams (vs. MIA), Kelvin Benjamin (vs. KC), Randall Cobb (at TEN)
    • Sleepers: Mike Wallace (vs. CLE), Rishard Matthews (vs. GB), Jordan Matthews (vs. ATL), Eli Rogers (vs. DAL), Stefon Diggs (at WAS)
  • Sit’em
    • Jarvis Landry (at SD): Not only has he only had one touchdown this season but he is hurt. He is really on the struggle bus. Also the Dolphins are relaying heavily on their run game.
    • Julian Edelman (vs. SEA): Tom Brady is using his tight ends more than anything. Edelman just isn’t being targeted as much.
    • Others: Willie Snead (vs. DEN), Doug Baldwin (at NE), Brandon Marshall (vs. LAR)

Tight End:

  • Start’em:
    • Tyler Eifert (at NYG): He had his breakout game in Week 8 against Washington with nine catches for 102 yards and a touchdown. He should be able to build on that performance.
    • Antonio Gates (vs. MIA): Gates has been on fire in his last two games. Gates had nine points against Denver and 13 against the Titans.
    • Others: Zach Miller (at TB)
  • Sleepers: Dennis Pitta (vs. CLE), Zach Ertz (vs. ATL), C.J. Fiedorowicz (at JAC)
    • Sit’em
    • Coby Fleener (vs. DEN): Denver has only allowed two touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season. With Fleener only earning four or less points in every game but two this season he should be left on the bench.
    • Gary Barnidge (at BAL): Barnidge has yet to score a touchdown this season. Don’t expect him to score against the Ravens either. They haven’t allowed a tight end to score a touchdown all season.
    • Others: Julius Thomas (vs. HOU), Greg Olsen (vs. KC)

Defense:

  • Start’em:
    • Ravens (vs CLE): The Ravens DST has scored in two back to back games and are wishing to make this one a third. The Ravens also have seven sacks in the past two games. Also it is Cleveland so don’t expect to much from them.
    • Sleepers: Rams (at NYJ), Jets (vs. LAR), Texans (at JAC)
  • Sit’em:
    • Seahawks (at NE): The Seahawks DST hasn’t looked bad as of late, but they are missing Michael Bennett (knee). The Patriots are a tough match up with Brady playing like he is. The Patriots have scored at least 27 points in all four game with Brady.
