Fantasy Football: Start \ Sit

Hello Jet Nation, we will be adding a column to list players who will either outperform their average weekly rating or underperform their average weekly ratings throughout the internet.

Let’s get started;


  • Shaun Hill-Avg-25-He has been a top 10 QB when healthy and is playing maybe the worst pass defense in football.
  • Jon Kitna-Avg 22-The change to Garret will give them a short burst and as they should be down most of the game, he will have to throw.
  • Tashard Choice-Avg 49-This is a gut feeling that with the new coach he will finally pick the best Dallas RB.
  • Keiland Williams-Avg 45-All Skins RB is banged up and this is the 3rd down back in a high scoring game.
  • Shonn  Greene-Avg 33-The job share is on and he has been getting better and better.
  • Mike Goodson-Avg 29-Here is your #1 back that can also catch passes; I am expecting at least 100 total yards.
  • Ronnie Brown-Avg 25-With the move to Pennington, I see the Phins getting back to what they do best and that is a run/pass ration of 65/35
  • Blair White-Avg 49-here is your new Austin Collie and with Tamme banged up he will get the targets.
  • Mario Manningham-Avg 43-Steve Smith looks to be out so he moves up to Wr#2 against the awful Dallas D.
  • Mike Thomas-Avg 38-He is lucky to play the awful Texans defense; I can see 80 yards and a possible TD.
  • Nate Burleson-Avg 35- Had a nice game last week and the Lions pass offense may be better w/o Stafford.
  • Nate Washington-Avg 32-It all opens up for him with Moss getting the double team.
  • Pierre Garcon-Avg 26-When Peyton ignores you one week, the next week is big.


  • Peyton Manning-Avg 1-Its not that he will be awful but Cinn has a vg pass d and can see an average game.  Garrard will outscore him
  • Tom Brady-AVG 11- He has been below average w/o Moss and will continue that downward trend, stay away from all Pats on offense.
  • Ray Rice- AVG 11- He seems to struggle on the road while ATL is strong at home.
  • Peyton Hillis-Avg 13- Against the Jets Run D, his run will slow down.
  • LT-Avg 15-  He should be ok but not a top 25 RB with the job share and Cleveland also giving up 1 rushing TD this year.
  • Ryan Torain-Avg 25-He is still banged up and who knows where Shanny will lean.
  • Beanie Wells-Avg 27-He knee is getting worse, stay away and do not start.
  • Reggie Wayne-Avg 1-  I am down on the Ind pass offense this week.
  • Randy Moss-Avg 11- He usually starts strong but I have a feeling 3rd time is not a charm this year.
  • Percy Harvin-Avg 15-  Had a great game but now playing one of the best pass defenses in NFL.
  • Michael Crabtree-Avg 27- 2 words-Troy Smith.
  • Steve Smith (Car)-Avg 37-Stay away , stay far away from anything regarding pass offense in Carolina
