Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: Dion Lewis

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: JuJu Smith-Schuster
Last week’s injury to Antonio Brown was a major blow to fantasy owners. But that’s life in fantasy football.   Only two wide receivers have been worth a top-tier grade in fantasy football this year. Brown is one of them, and...

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 15: Kenyan Drake
For most fantasy football leagues, this is semifinals week. And if you’re fortunate enough to still be playing, 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....

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 14: Leonard Fournette

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 14: Josh Gordon
A lot of success in fantasy football comes down to volume. Even if the players aren't producing, but their touches and targets are still consistent, then they should continue to maintain starting consideration.   That's becoming...

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 13: Derek Carr

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 11: Derek Carr
Week 10 was another example of why you shouldn’t draft a quarterback high in fantasy football. Three of the top five scorers at the position last week were all streaming quarterback options, as C.J. Beathard, Case Keenum and DeShone Kizer...

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 11: Melvin Gordon
How lucky are fantasy football owners who either own Mark Ingram or Alvin Kamara? Or BOTH! There’s a guy in one of my leagues who snagged Kamara early in the year as his handcuff. Smart guy.   Both are easy RB1s and must-starts each...

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 10: Jordy Nelson

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 10: Jared Goff
The quarterback position has been a difficult one to keep filling for some fantasy football owners. With injuries and poor play, the streaming option has been a solid investment in 2017. Jared Goff, Jay Cutler and Jacoby Brissett were top-10...

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 10: Carlos Hyde
The top two running backs in fantasy football last week were Alvin Kamara and Corey Clement. Read that again. One was a dart throw pick late in fantasy drafts, and the other is still available more than 90 percent of all Yahoo! fantasy leagues....

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 9: A.J. Green

Last week Ezekiel Elliot showed us why fantasy football owners will miss him for the majority of the remaining fantasy schedule IF he is suspended. He showed his ability to run the football, catch the football and tip-toe down the sidelines....

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 8: Amari Cooper
With six teams (yes, six!) on bye this week that makes figuring out which wide receivers and tight ends to start or sit for your fantasy team(s) even more difficult than usual. This is especially the case considering we are getting into...
