Start Em’ Sit Em’ Week 9

With six teams on bye this week, our start/sit decisions become more crucial than ever. While it is tough to sit players who have a decent role on their team, it is the tough decisions that separate the champions from everyone else. Based on this week’s matchups, I recommend starting and sitting the following players.

Week 9 Waiver Wire Adds

The trade deadline has come and gone. There are some new players on new teams and that means that guys are going to be stepping up into larger roles. There are also a few guys that will be fantasy relevant in a week or two, so it is best to jump on them a week early and stay ahead of the curve. In addition, the most important thing that you can do to make sure your team is in contention is to make sure there are no stars that were dropped due to recent struggles. For example, Larry Fitzgerald and Kenyan Drake were dropped all across fantasy football at some point this season, so make sure there are no studs lingering on your wire.  The following waiver wire adds reflect a $100 Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB).

Week 4 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Week 3 brought us the emergence of Baker Mayfield in Cleveland. He led the Browns to a comeback victory over the New York Jets and Sam Darnold. Baker won the first battle of many between the top two quarterbacks of the 2018 draft and looked damn good in relief of Tyrod Taylor. The fantasy quarterback battle of the century between Big Ben and Ryan Fitzpatrick did not disappoint at all and the Rams look like the team to beat this year and are a complete fantasy juggernaut. Oh yeah, and the Bills beat the Vikings in Minnesota.

Week 3 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Week 3 is upon us. The football season has been crazy so far. Ryan Fitzpatrick leads the league in fantasy points, Matt Breida leads the league in rush yards and Desean Jackson is the receiving king through two weeks of play. If you play the strategy of streaming a QB, it has paid off well thus far as there have been plenty of quarterbacks outside of the top 12 weekly rankings that have performed very highly. Performances like Blake Bortles’ explosion for 30+ fantasy points against the Patriots last week secure confidence in streaming week in and week out.

Week 3 Waiver Wire Adds

It has only been two weeks and there are already unheard of stars coming out of the woodworks to prove their worthiness of being on our rosters. This week, we had players stake their claim on the number one job for their team, and unfortunately, there was an injury or two so there are a few guys stepping into increased roles. Week 2 will prove to be an import waiver wire week this season, so pay attention and don’t let the gems slip away. The following FAAB values are based on a $100 budget.
