Fantasy Football Start \ Sit

It is playoff week and here is the weekly fantasy football start\sit.  I am not going to list too many players since you should be starting the guys who got you to the playoffs unless thet have an awful matchup.  Last week we went 7-3 in the Overachievers and 6-3 for underachievers.  Let’s get to the rankings;


  • Philip Rivers (11)-  No int’s in the last 2 weeks and gets the Bill defense
  • Tony Romo (7) and Eli Manning (6)- This is an expected shootout, start them both.
  • Rex Grossman (13)-  It’s all about playing the Patriots.
  • Toby Gerhart (33)- It is not looking good for Adrian Peterson and they get to play the toothless Lions defense.
  • Maurice Morris (31)-  Kevin Smith is out again.
  • Mike Williams (27)- He has been coming on and should get better with Josh Freeman back.
  • Santana Moss (27)- He plays the Patriots, easy decision here.
  • Julio Jones (23)- He got 11 targets last week and has the tasty Panthers coming up.
  • Michael Crabtree (22)- Another matchup that I like when he gets the Cardinals.


  • Michael Vick (8)- He is rusty and has to play the all of a sudden Dolphins defense.
  • Reggie Bush (13)- This seems way too high.
  • BenJavrvus Green Ellis- There is no way I would take a chance with him.
  • Steven Jackson (21)- They may put 11 in the box this week and the Seahawks are excellent against the run.
  • Beanie Wells (23)- This is a tough sit but the 49ers do not give up rushing TD’s
  • Mike Tolbert (27) -If you take a chance here you need a TD since Matthews gets all the carries.
  • Percy Harvin (13)- His migraines are back and may not have a QB with Ponder out.
  • Brandon Lloyd (20)- 2 words Tom Brandstator.
  • Santonio Holmes (24)- He has not topped 60 yards in forever.
  • Dwayne Bowe (27)- 2 more words Tyler Palko.

Good Luck!
