View Full Version : Week 1 Fantasy Starters Sit Em and Play em:

09-08-2011, 07:22 PM


- Aaron Rodgers: Always a consistant fantasy QB.

- Drew Brees: ^

- Matt Schaub: He's going to have a field day against that defense.

- Matt Stafford: Good pre-season, plus he's got some weapons.

- Josh Freeman: Detroit's secondary is still suspect.

- Kevin Kolb: Carolina's secondary is a huge weakness. Him and Fitzgerald could connect twice for TDs.

- Mike Vick: I think he'll be a consistant fantasy starter this year.

- Tom Brady: ^

Sit Em:

- Ben Roethlisbuerger: Playing Baltimore. Never usually a fantasy day for offensive players.

- Joe Flacco: ^...Won't put up big numbers against the Steelers defense.

- Kerry Collins: Do I have to explain? Highly doubt anyone has him.

- Jay Cutler: Suspect o-line, limited targets at WR against an improved Atlanta defensive line.

- Sam Bradford: Eagles are going to come at him. Blitz-happy against the best CB trio in the league with no WRs that really scare anyone.

Start em:
- Ben Tate: FOster won't be playing this week more than likely, and Tate is coming off a good pre-season and training camp.

- Delone Carter/Joseph Addai: I think Carter gets the reps, but Indy will be very run heavy this week and season.

- Beanie Wells: Carolina's d-line struggles against the run. Wells is due for a breakout year as the Cardinals feature back as well.

- Mike Tolbert: Minnesota's defense is aging and Tolbert is due for a score or 2.


- Mark Ingram or Ryan Grant/any RB in the opening night game: I see this being an arial attack for both teams and will both struggle to run the ball. Also, both teams have deep backfields, so it'll be hard to pick 1 out of the crowd.

- Arian Foster: Not playing.

- Felix Jones: Jets are tough on defense.

- Lagaretee Blount: He ran well against the Lions lat year, but its a new year. Detroit has a good line.
