NFL Fantasy Football Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em Week 10
NFL Fantasy Football Week 10 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em
Alright fantasy football owners it’s that time of the week where your attention should be on the week ahead and what players you should be thinking about playing because you need to rack up points and which players should be sitting because they won’t produce much.
My methods of figuring out which players are the best to sit and which players are the best to start are based on a couple of different factors but they usually work as for the past three weeks. I have been on fire as of late of picking the correct players to start and the correct ones to sit to a tune of 17 out of 18.Right now I may just be one of the hottest journalist in the country when it comes to selecting who to start and who to sit and if I’m not then I’d love to see who is.
Either way I guarantee that if you start the three skill position players who I have chosen as my three candidates for the week that you and you team will receive a boost in your scoring. I also guarantee that if you sit the three players who I have as candidates for this you will also be able to gain much needed point due to the fact that these guys will have off weeks this week and the guys who you subbed them for will have a greater chance at succeeding this week. Here are my fantasy football start ‘em or sit ‘em candidates for week 10; take heed to which players are where because at the end of the week if you follow this then you should be in line for a win.
Start QB Andrew Luck
Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck is having a fine start to his NFL career passing for 2,404 yards (tied for 4th in NFL), 10 touchdowns, eight interceptions and completing 56.5% of his attempts. While those are some pretty reasons as tho why you should start Luck here is the best one, the Colts are playing the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night who's defense ranks 25th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game (255.5 yards) and 26th in points allowed per game (27.4 points).
Start RB Marshawn Lynch
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is a must start this week. Not only is he having yet another fine season this year rushing for 881 yards (2nd in NFL) and four touchdowns on 185 carries (2nd in NFL) but this week he will get to run against the New York Jets whose defense is ranked 29th in rushing yards allowed per game and 24th in points allowed per game (25 points).
Start WR A.J. Green
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has made quite the name for himself in just one season and a half of work in the NFL. This season Green is amongst the leaders in the three main receiving categories including first in touchdown receptions with eight, sixth in receiving yards with 735 and tied for seventh in receptions with 51. This week he is a no brainier to start against a New York Giants defense which is ranked 26th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game (264.3 yards).
Sit QB Ben Roethlisberger
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is having another fins season this year passing for 2,203 yards (11th in NFL), 16 touchdowns (tied for 5th in NFL), four interceptions and has completed 67.1% of his attempts (4th in NFL) but this is the week to sit him. Big Ben and the Steelers will be going up against the Arizona Cardinals whose defense ranks third in the league in passing yards allowed per game (194.6 yards) and seventh in points allowed per game (19.2 points) not to mention the Cards head coach is Roethlisberger's former offensive coordinator, Ken Whisenhunt.
Sit RB Arian Foster
Yes Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is leading the NFL in both total carries with 192 as well as rushing touchdowns with 10 and is fifth in the league in rushing yards with 770 but this is the week to sit him. The Texans are squaring off against another great, physical defense this week in the Chicago Bears who are currently ranked sixth in rushing yards allowed per game (88 yards) and second in points allowed per game (15 points). This contest is going to be an extremely low scoring battle between these two stout defenses.
Sit WR Larry Fitzgerald
For the second consecutive week I am encouraging fantasy owners to bench Arizona Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald, not because of his numbers which have been solid this season (51 receptions for 585 yards and 4 touchdowns) but be cause of his opponent. The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently ranked first in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game (174 yards) and ninth in points allowed per game (20.5 points); plus when you add in the fact that Cardinals quarterback John Skelton has been shaky to say the least you have to sit Fitzgerald this week.
