Thinking back to fantasy football draft season, who would have thought that Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams would be first and second in total fantasy points scored by wide receivers?

 

They both have more than 200 fantasy points (in standard leagues). That's more than Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. and DeAndre Hopkins. But that’s fantasy football.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: Derrick Henry and Other RB Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Could Henry, Jamaal Williams or Chris Carson help you win your fantasy league?
Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: Derrick Henry and Other RB Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

If you’re one of the fortunate fantasy football owners to have Todd Gurley or Derrick Henry (or both — can you imagine?) on your roster, then you’re probably still playing and hoping for one more week of pure domination from them.

 

While Gurley, and even Henry with the way he has been playing, are easy starts, what about those borderline RBs that could make or break your fantasy football championship dreams?

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: Tom Brady and Other QB/DST Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

It might be hard, but you might want to sit Brady this week if you want to win a fantasy football championship

We've finally made it to the fantasy football championship round. Even if you've made it this far, finding a quality quarterback may not always be a simple decision.

 

Last week both Sam Darnold and Josh Allen finished in the top four in fantasy scoring for quarterbacks while Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Jared Goff were big-time duds and took down many fantasy dreams with them.

Most playoff teams have a solid roster of receivers that put them in the final four of their fantasy football leagues. But what if a receiver’s points have been dwindling lately? Which receivers will be affected by quarterback changes? How serious is that “not serious” ankle or knee that landed your starter on the injury report?

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 15: Adrian Peterson and Other RB Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Yes you should sit Peterson. But could Doug Martin, Elijah McGuire and Ito Smith help you win your fantasy football playoff game this week?

For most fantasy football leagues, it's semifinals week and if you’re lucky enough to still be alive, this isn’t the time to get cute. You need to start your studs. You need to play the guys that brought you to the dance.

 

But what about those really tough choices? What about your flex? What about running backs like Chris Carson, Josh Adams and even Sony Michel? Are they worth the risk this week?

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 15: Aaron Rodgers and Other QB/DST Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Find out why you might want to sit Rodgers and Cam Newton this week

It’s Week 15 of the fantasy football season and if you are one of the teams still in the hunt for a championship you don't need me to tell you what's at stake. There is no next week unless you win, which means you better make the right decisions.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 14: Courtland Sutton and Other WR/TE Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Yes, you should start Sutton this week and find out which tight ends could keep your fantasy football season alive

A lot of success in fantasy football comes down to volume. Even if the players aren't producing, as long as the touches and targets remain then they should continue to be in your starting lineup.

 

That's becoming clear among wide receivers, especially when it comes to the top two over the last four weeks. Antonio Brown and Keenan Allen have far outdistanced the field in that span, doing so after getting off to slow (by their standards) starts.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 14: LeSean McCoy and Other RB Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Could McCoy, Gus Edwards and Lamar Miller really help you win your fantasy playoff matchup this week?

The running back position has become a little more diverse in recent weeks in fantasy football. Some of the stud backs aren’t the only ones at the top of the leaderboard.

 

Todd Gurley continues his torrid pace, while Phillip Lindsay has multiple touchdowns in each of his last three games and Tarik Cohen may be one of the most important running backs to have on a roster during the fantasy playoffs.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 14: Baker Mayfield and Other QB/DST Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Could Mayfield be the key to winning in the fantasy football playoffs this week?

Having a consistent quarterback is nice, but not necessary, as evidenced by Week 13's fantasy scoring. Here are just some of the names in the top 12 of scoring among QBs for Week 13 — Josh Allen, Nick Mullens, Derek Carr and Lamar Jackson. I'm sure everyone had these guys high on their draft boards entering this season.

 

The point is quarterbacks can be found, but with the fantasy playoffs upon us you need to make sure you start the right one.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 13: DJ Moore and Other WR/TE Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Find out why Moore is a must-start this week and which surprising tight end you might want to sit
Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 13: DJ Moore and Other WR/TE Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Week 13 is the final week of the fantasy football regular season for most leagues, meaning fantasy owners have two options. Either stick with the proven veteran who seems to be struggling lately or focus on the matchup and not the name, be it for a rookie or other breakout candidate.
