OT: Fantasy football sit/start thread

Submitted by unWavering on December 8th, 2016 at 8:24 PM

It's playoff season in fantasy football, and I find myself having trouble deciding who to sit and who to start.  I am in a 1/2 point PPR league.  The guys I am questioning are:


Russell Wilson OR Alex Smith


Darren Sproles OR Rob Kelley


Tyreek HIll OR Tyrell Williams OR Michael Thomas OR Malcolm Mitchell

My starting WRs are currently Hill (who will be locked in in 10 minutes), Doug Baldwin, and Antonio Brown.  I am considering scrapping Baldwin from the lineup as well.  


Zac Ertz OR CJ Fiedorowicz

I can also put any of these guys in my flex spot.  Who should I start? What are your fantasy football dillemmas?

Wilson/Sproles/Thomas/Fiedorowicz is what I would go with. I like Wilson against a beat up GB defense, I like Sproles for the catches, and I'm always rolling with a Saints WR. I don't trust Wentz to have a good game, but Houston has relied heavily on the TE because Brock sucks.

similar questions here. ppr league. I'm locked in with Hill already, and im not benching Mike Evans, but do I go with Golden Tate or Devante Adams at my flex?

also 2nd RB, sproles, D Martin or Ryan Matthews. leaning towards Matthews as he is supposed to be healthy.

I would definitely start Tate over Adams. Tate has been hot and at home against Chicago is a good matchup. Where as Adams is playing the Seahawks and snow could also be a factor in that game.

As my 2nd WR Im kind of stumped on who to start out of Kelvin Benjamin, Sammy Watkins, or possibly Sterling Shepard.

Ive been rolling with Mariota & Walker on the Titans and they have been great for me but this week they're playing the Broncos. So I have to decide between Mariota or Eli at QB as well as Walker or Ertz at TE.

This is standard scoring.

off to a great start with Hill's negative points! but Ive got Brady Monday night, so I'm not worried at all. Primarily because my opponent has not yet realized Alshon Jeffrey is not available this week.


December 8th, 2016 at 9:13 PM ^

Do I play Malcom Mitchell over Brandon Cooks at WR?  Including whichever I don't start at WR whom do I play at Flex: L Blount, Devontae Booker, Theo Riddick?  


Go Blue!

So any thoughts on getting a streamer for next week at QB? I've got Luck who's going against Minnesota that week which, yeah, bad. Unfortunately Winston, Taylor and Rivers are already taken so I don't see much of an option... :-/

looks to be a factor this week. I don't expect a whole lot through the air for Wilson, but I guess he could be playing from behind if the D lets up with Earl Thomas out. Tyrell Williams has been consistent for me and decent odds to score a long TD so I like him. Hellz to the no on Sproles...fat Bob Kelley all the way!

I'm glad this thread was started I have a RB conundrum. I'm in a standard league and will start 3 RB this week. David Johnson is a lock. For the other 2 spots I have four pretty good options:

1. Jordan Howard
2. Lamar Miller
3. Thomas Rawls
4. Frank Gore

Which two would you start alongside David Johnson?
