Last week Kate and I sat out some players that showed up to play such as wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, and running back Jay Ajayi. They both put up some nice points last week. However, we did recommend starting Jacoby Brissett as a sleeper and sitting out Jameis “Eat a W” Winston. Who knew that Josh McCown was going to ball out? But it’s the NFL and anything can happen!
So here are our starts and sits for your Fantasy lineups!
There are four teams on a bye this week: Eagles, Chiefs, Ravens and Raiders
|QB||J. McCown : Bucs have allowed 5 different QBs to finish top 10 in points||J. Cutler: Not a good matchup against Panthers.||QB||R. Fitzpatrick: Will throw some of that magic against the 49ers||P. Rivers: Jags has only surrendered 13 points to QB|
|D. Prescott : Falcons defense struggling in all phases.||M. Mariota : Bengals will make it too difficult.||CJ Beathard: Giants redzone defense soft on WRs.||J. Brissett: Steelers brutal against QBs.|
