Week 3 Fantasy Football Sit ‘Em/Start ‘Em

Week 2 is officially in the books and with the surprising number of injuries that were sustained in week 2, many of you are likely looking for some help setting your lineups as you’re trying to fill the holes left by your fallen stars. We are here to help and will dive into the numbers which should help you decide which players are worth taking a chance on this week versus which players should be taken out of your lineup and glued to the bench. With new fantasy stars emerging and past fantasy studs beginning to look more like duds, it’s important not to keep your lineup the same every week just because you drafted a player with the expectation of them being a weekly starter. It’s time to make some tough decisions and do what you must to help you win your week.

Every week there are players who significantly outperform their projections, much in the same way there are players who significantly underperform. You should use the information presented to make your own decision in order to start your optimal line-up and get the W at the end of the week. If you find yourself at 0-2 already it’s not time to press the panic button just yet, all you need is a win this week to get yourself back on track and keep yourself in the playoff race. Therefore, read up and get those line-ups set using your new-found knowledge.

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

Alright, I’ll man up. I was wrong last week when I said to sit Jay Cutler as I was expecting both Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery to miss the game. Instead they both suited up and Jay Cutler had a great game as he went off for 176 yards and 4 TDs adding 25 more rushing yards. Let the good times roll as Jay Cutler has yet another favorable match-up this week. Cutler and his Bears will be taking on the New York Jets who were lit up by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers aerial attack last week to the tune of 346 yards through the air and 3 TDs. Cutler has great weapons at his disposal, so expect him to continue to take advantage of this. Start him.
