Hoping your still in, most people have been eliminated by now.

Quarterbacks Start’ems.

  • Tony Romo –The Saints give up 287 yds passing a game.  Tony Romo will have a big day and keep his playoff hopes alive for one more week.

  • Cam Newton- Oakland is 27th against the pass.
  • Joe Flacco –The Giants are 28th against the pass.  F

Quarterback Sit’em

Dan the Man won week 14 with a 10-5 record. I was second at 9-6 and Mr. Fantasy finished third at 8-7. For the year I have the lead at 127-67-1. Mr. Fantasy is in second at 120-74-1. Dan the Man is in third with a record of 115-79-1.

Here’s what we agreed on this week.

Houston over Indianapolis

Denver over Baltimore

Washington over Cleveland

The Giants over Atlanta

Seattle over Buffalo in Toronto

Detroit over Arizona

Green Bay over Chicago

The rest of the games we split on; here they are.

Dan the Man and I have Miami, Mr. Fantasy has Jacksonville.

Mr. Fantasy and I have St. Louis, Dan the Man has Minnesota.

Dan the Man and Mr. Fantasy have New Orleans, I have Tampa Bay.

Mr. Fantasy and Dan the Man have Carolina, I have San Diego.

Mr. Fantasy and I have Oakland, Dan the Man has Kansas City.

Mr. Fantasy and I have Pittsburgh, Dan the Man has Dallas.

Mr. Fantasy and I have New England, Dan the man has the 49ers.

Dan the Man and Mr. Fantasy have the Jets, I have the Titans.

 

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

Week 14 was crazy.

We saw many blow outs and several teams didn’t show up this week in big situations.

Steelers, Texans, Falcons, Bears and Bengals all choked.

Can I stop hearing Tampa Bay and making the playoffs?  Will the Bears even make the playoffs after dropping another one?

Week 14 Start’em and Sit’em

Week 14 has a lot of great story lines.

Who will separate themselves in the Rookie of the year race?  I see it as a three horse race between Luck, RGIII and Wilson.

Is this the AFC championship preview?  New England hosts the Texans in what should be a great game.

Can the Steelers keep their playoff dreams alive?  The last spot comes down to Bengals and Steelers.

Now Which is the better division, all year everyone proclaimed the NFC as the better division, but I don’t see it that way anymore.

Let’s get into this week’s Fantasy Start’em and Sit’em

Quarterbacks Start’ems.

  • Eli Manning – Big day against a bad Tampa Defense and it is December.  Look for the Gaints to get really hot down the stretch.
  • Joe Flacco-Washington has a bad pass defense.  Ranked 31st against the pass, Flacco has a great afternoon.
  • Andrew Luck- Will be rookie of the year and we are watching something special developing this season in Indy, add in a bad Tennessee team=big afternoon.
  • Matthew Stafford –Has the best receiver in the NFL and Green Bay gives up yards thru the air.

Quarterback Sit’em

  • Phillip Rivers –Nothing left to play for and faces best defense in the NFL.
  • Jay Cutler-Great QB, bad system faces decent defense means bad numbers
  • Tony Romo- Bengals pass defense is under rated.  Romo will have trouble moving the ball.
  •  Russell Wilson-Is now in the Rookie of the year conversation after beating the Bears.  He will have a tough night against the Cardinals.

Running Back Start’em

  • Steven Jackson-87 rushes/369 yds/1 TD over the last 4 games.  This includes 2 games against the 49ers.  Buffalo is 30th against the rush, expect his production to be high.
  • Jamaal Charles-K.C has found its rushing attack. Charles has Averaged 105 yds a game over the last 4.  Lokk for this to continue this week.
  •  Chris Johnson- He has struggle the last 2 weeks, but he a colts defense that is not very good against the rush.  He gets things back on track this week.
  • Ben Jarvus Green-Elis– Faces a middle of the road rush defense and they will be keying in on A.J. Green and the pass defense.

Running Back Sit’ems

  • Bryce Brown-I know he has been putting up BIG numbers since starting, but this week he faces the best run defense.
  • Reggie Bush Faces 3rd rank rush defense
  • Ryan Mathews– he has been struggling on posting 53 yds a game and 0 TDs over the past 5 games.  Now he faces the number defense in the NFL.
  • Steven Ridley Has scored in his last 4 games.  Houston is stout against the run and Ridley will have a tough night.

Wide Receiver Start’em

  • Hakeem Nicks-Faces the 30th rank pass defense.
  • Jeremy Maclin- Faces worst Pass Defense in the NFL.
  •  Chris Givens-20 targets/16 Rec/207 yds/1 TD over the last 2 games.  This continues against Buffalo’s middle of the road pass Defense.
  • Torrey Smith-He is being targeted a minimum of 8 times a game over the last 4 games combined with the NFL’s worst pass defense.  He should put up good numbers this week.

Wide Receiver Sit’em

  • Larry Fitzgerald-He is one of the best receivers in the NFL, but no QB and a tough physical Seattle defense means another bad night.
  • Stevie Johnson-His production has been up over the last 4 games, but the Rams defense is better than they get credit for.  It will be tough game for him.
  • Brian Hartline-Faces 2nd best pass Defense
  • Steve Smith(Car)- 6 for 52 YDs when he faced Atlanta in September.  Atlanta is looking to clinch the number 1 seed.  His numbers will be similar to last time.

Tight End Start’em

  • Owen Daniels-Great situation against New England.
  • Jason Witten-Romo will be looking for his check down all night.
  • Jermaine Gresham-Who be open a lot
  • Heath Miller – Big Ben returns

Tight End Sit’em

  • Brandon Pettigrew– Not the main Tight end anymore.
  • Antonio Gates– They’ve packed it in
  • Jermichael Finley-Over rated
  • Brent Celek-not been productive
