Start ‘ em Sit ’em: Week 3

Well last week was easier to give advice on, after seeing what teams and players can do in week 1.  So this weeks start ’em sit ’em should be even better right? Let’s find out, just remember these are all predictions and I definitely can be wrong.  But I won’t be.

Start ’em


Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Pit– This is the real deal here.  I repeat, not a fluke anymore.  Fitzpatrick is tearing it up as the Bucs starter and needs to be started in all leagues.  Going up against the Steelers’ defense who just gave up 6 passing touchdowns last week, gimme some FitzMagic baby!

Running Back

Jordan Howard @ Ari–  Howard hasn’t been great to start off the season but I think this is the week he turns it around.  Going against the Cardinals defense who let up 35.9 fantasy points to RBs last week, and then 40.1 the week before,  I think the Bears feed Howard most of the game.

Wide Receiver

Keelan Cole vs. Ten–  Cole dazzled spectators with is one handed grab over a Patriots defender last week, and while it was a terrible throw by Bortles, Cole made it look easy.  That catch and 6 others for 116 yards and a touchdown put Cole on my fantasy radar.  This week the Jags get a home game against the Titans who have allowed the second most fantasy points to Wide Receivers this year.  Cole is a borderline WR2 for me this week.

Tight End

George Kittle @ KC– Kittle is primed for a big week here.  The Chiefs are the second worst team in defending against opposing fantasy tight ends and I have a feeling this game is going to be a shoot out.  I expect at least 1 touchdown from Kittle this week.

Sit ’em


Philip Rivers @ LAR– This is Rivers’ 3rd appearance on my list and I’m 1 for 2 on his prediction.  This week he’s going to the Rams, who have allowed a total of 7.8 fantasy points to opposing QBs in the past two weeks.  He may get like 12-15 points but I really don’t like those chances so he’s on my bench.

Running Back

Phillip Lindsay @ Bal– Lindsay has been a pleasant surprise for the Broncos and for fantasy owners who drafted/picked him up.  However this week Denver is going to Baltimore, who ranks 2nd in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs.  Also Lindsay is still in a timeshare with Royce Freeman,  So he’s on my bench this week.

Wide Receiver

Tyler Lockett vs. Dal– Lockett has two games and two touchdowns this year and that seems promising.  But I’m staying away from Seattle players until they figure their offense out.  Also worth mentioning that the Cowboys have allowed the 3rd least fantasy points to opposing WRs this season.

Tight End

David Njoku vs NYJ–  Njoku has seen a fair share of targets in the Browns revamped offense,  but this week will be tough for him to get points.  The jets have only allowed 3 receptions to opposing tight ends this year in the first two games.  He’s on my bench this week.
