Fantasy Football Start \ Sit

by Mike Dietrich on December 2, 2011

Last week we went 10-3 in the Overachievers and 9-4 for underachievers.  Let’s get to the rankings;

Overachievers

  • Matt Moore (18)- He has been a top 5 fantasy QB the past 4 weeks, I would rather him than Philip Rivers right now as an example.
  • Josh Freeman (13)-You have to start any offensive players against the Panthers defense.
  • Pierre Thomas (35)-Even with Suh the Lions had one of the  worst defenses against RB’s
  • Donald Brown (32)-With the Colts expecting to be trailing he should get 15-20 touches.
  • C.J. Spiller (28)-The Titans defense is up and down, I think he can finally show the talent he displayed in college.
  • Johnny Knox (47)-He has had 100 yards and a TD in each of his last 2 games.
  • Nate Burleson (40)-In what should be a shootout he will get plenty of targets.
  • Reggie Wayne (33)-Another game they will be trailing and with the Patriots defense, he is a must start no matter who the QB is.
  • Lance Moore (32)-He is a favorite of Drew Brees around the end zone.
  • Antonio Brown (24)- He is in the top 10 in the NFL in the past 6 weeks.

Underachievers

  • Matt Ryan (10)- He is on the road against a top 5 defense and probably no Julio Jones.
  • Mark Sanchez (14)- Another QB on the road vs a scrappy Redskins defense.
  • Michael Turner (11)-He has not practiced all week, if you have to win this week, tough chance to take.
  • Willis McGahee (15)-I can see Minnesota selling out against the run and making Tebow throw the ball.
  • Steven Jackson (19)- He is playing the best run defense in the NFL with an awful OL.
  • Brandon Jacobs (29)- He is running in quicksand and is unstartable at this time, while Bradshaw may play.
  • Larry Fitzgerald (5)- With Kolb coming back, he will be very rusty while Dallas gives him his proper respect.
  • Vincent Jackson (16)-Philip Rivers has ruined him.
  • Dwayne Bowe (19)- Tyler Palko has not yet thrown a td, another receiver who is ruined by his awful QB.

Sorry for the short list but there is so many decent offensive players playing bad defenses should be a high scoring week.  Please feel free to contact me on Twitter and visit our Fantasy Football Forum with any questions.

Good Luck!
