Don't let this hit you too hard, but you probably only have two weeks left of fantasy football. And there are only three weeks left of actual regular season football. The season goes by fast when you're having fun. Of course, that's if you're winning. But no matter what your record reads, you must finish strong. Show your opponents that you are a force to recon with whether or not you're Championship bound.
Last week we didn't post our usual accountability check, so we'll do it this week. Basically, for those who are new to the Sportster's "Sit 'Em/Start 'Em articles, it's our way of letting you know how we're doing predicting fantasy match ups. We want you to feel confident in our predictions, and it also ensures that we stay on top of our game.
So, in saying that, we hit on an impressive 60 percent of our predictions last week, with Kelvin Benjamin being a tossup. We threw him in the 60 percent bunch because he did kind of save his fantasy day with a touchdown. So, if he helped you win your day, he did his job. If he caused you to lose, than shame on us. We'll take the hit.
So, as always, in saying that, let's get to this week's "Sit 'Em/Start 'Em." Per usual, all projections are based on Yahoo! Fantasy.
20 Buffalo Bills' Defense – SIT
19 New York Giants' Defense – START
18 Jordan Cameron – TE, Cleveland Browns – SIT
17 Jordan Reed – TE, Washington Redskins – START
16 Mike Wallace – WR, Miami Dolphins – SIT
15 Martavis Bryant – WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – START
*Sigh* Last week we were partly correct and partly wrong in our assessment of Bryant. While we suggested you sit Bryant because of his recent lack of production, we also told you not to give up on him just yet. After all, he did have a looming matchup against the Falcons.
14 Steve Smith Sr. – WR, Baltimore Ravens – SIT
13 Keenan Allen – WR, San Diego Chargers – START
12 Andre Johnson – WR, Houston Texans – SIT
11 Kelvin Benjamin – WR, Carolina Panthers – START
10 Trent Richardson – RB, Indianapolis Colts – SIT
9 LeGarrette Blount – RB, New England Patriots – START
8 Frank Gore – RB, San Francisco 49ers – SIT
7 Latavius Murray – RB, Oakland Raiders – START
6 Andre Williams – RB, New York Giants – SIT
5 Jonathan Stewart – RB, Carolina Panthers – START
4 Ryan Tannehill – QB, Miami Dolphins – SIT
3 Jake Locker – QB, Tennessee Titans – START
2 Colin Kaepernick – QB, San Francisco 49ers – SIT
1 Ben Roethlisberger – QB, Pittsburgh Steelers – START
Roethlisberger went on a tear last week, racking up 350 yards and three touchdowns on the road against Cincinnati. We expect more of the same this week against the Atlanta Falcons who rank 13th against opposing quarterbacks in fantasy football. The Falcons have also surrendered 288 passing yards a game and have actually given up the second most passing yards per game over the last three games. He's a solid start this week.
