We are in playoffs now.  Hope you made the cut, and I would say stay with what got you there.  If you have decisions that need to be made, maybe this will help you.

Quarterbacks Start’ems.

  • Eli Manning – It’s December and the Giants win.  Falcons are 17th against the pass and Eli has thrown for 8 TD’s in previous 3 games.
  • Cam Newton-Faces bad San Diego Defense.
  • Russell Wilson- Has averaged two TD’s and only thrown 1 INT over the last 5 games.  He plays a soft Buffalo pass defense
  • Matthew Stafford –Arizona already has given up.  Detroit is a dangerous team thru the air.

Quarterback Sit’em

  • Andrew Luck –Has thrown 8 TD’s and 10 INT’s over the last 5 games.  He faces a tough defense that is going to prove last week was a bump in the road.
  • Jay Cutler-Bear’s system is bad.
  • Tony Romo- Was subpar against a good Bengals defense, now faces a great Pittsburg defense that must win this week if they are going to make the playoffs.
  •  Colin Kaepernick-This is the biggest game in his NFL career and he faces the best team in the NFL.  I think he is going to be glad NFL players have short memories this week.

Running Back Start’em

  • Steven Jackson-has been a good play the last 5 weeks and this trend continues against the Vikings average run defense.
  • Alfred Morris-He has proven when the offense leans on him he produces.  This week looks like they will need to with RGIII’s injury.
  •  Frank Gore-Needs 30 yds to break the franchise rushing record.  He faces one of the worst rush defense and should have solid production this week.
  • C.J. Spiller– Fred Jackson is out this week and Seattle is 22nd against the rush.

Running Back Sit’ems

  • Chris Johnson-Jets can play defense.
  • Demarco Murray- Pittsburg gives up the fewest rushing yds.
  • Ryan Mathews– He is on my list of biggest busts this year.  He has 1 rush TD this year and has only broke 90 yds rushing once.
  • Doug Martin-You must start him, but Drew Brees against the worst pass defense in the NFLTampa Bay may need to abandon the run to keep up.

Wide Receiver Start’em

  • Cecil Shorts-Number 1 target in Jacksonville.  He will get plenty of targets this week against Miami.
  • Hakeem Nicks- Now that he has returned he has seen 10 targets a game.  This is the time of year the Giants play their best football.
  •  Chris Givens-I know he only had 3 receptions last week, but he was targeted 10 times.  He will be thrown to early and often.
  • Greg Jennings-Next man up with Jordy Nelson out.  Greg Jennings will step in and have a great game.

Wide Receiver Sit’em

  • Larry Fitzgerald-Write him off for the rest of the year.
  • Stevie Johnson-Seattle is 4th against the pass. Big Jack you have over valued this guy all year.
  • Torrey Smith-He disappears against good defenses.  This week is Denver and they have a great passing defense.
  • Dez Bryant- Has a broken finger and faces a great defense this week.

Tight End Start’em

  • Greg Olsen-TD in previous 2 games.
  • Martellus Bennett– TD in previous 2 games
  • Kyle Rudolf-Rebounds from bad game against Chicago.  Had a TD in previous 3 games.
  • Heath Miller – 5 for 66 yds

Tight End Sit’em

  • Brandon Pettigrew– Not getting a lot of looks
  • Antonio Gates– Packed it up.
  • Jermichael Finley-Not playing good
  • Owen Daniels-Bust alert, been in a funk last 3 weeks
