One of the things we like to do here at FantasySports.org is to give some recognition to some hard workers. In this case, I’m talking about Week 2 Start ‘em, Sit ‘em columns for Fantasy Football.
Outside of weekly player rankings (which aren’t really a column as much as a tool), these start/sit articles are the most viewed on nearly every Fantasy Football site. Everyone wants to know what their players’ matchups look like this week, and if they should give a regular the hook, or give a sleeper a shot.
So I decided to take a look around this worldwide web to find as many of the Week 2 Start ‘em Sit ‘em columns as I could find. It’s a huge undertaking to write these, so let’s give these guys some credit. And then give them hell on Tuesday if they’re way wrong. (Not really. If you want to hate, write your own blog and shutty.)
Week 2 Start ‘em and Sit ‘em Columns
If you know of some Week 2 start ‘em sit ‘em columns I’m missing, please comment below, or tweet me @DavidGonos and let me know. I’d love to make this a regular column each week. I’m also going to suggest just one Start/Sit column per website (Sorry, Bleacher Report).
SportsIllustrated.com by David Gonos
This douchebag loves Dolphins WR Mike Wallace and hates the Cowboys DST this week. (Sorry for the self-promotion!)
CBSSports.com by Jamey Eisenberg
Eisenberg likes Carson Palmer, but warns Frank Gore’s owners about another disappointing game.
BleacherReport.com by Eric Mack
Speaking of D-bags! Just kidding, we’re podcast buddies/softball teammates/former co-workers. Smack likes Dolphins RB Lamar Miller in Week 2, but he warns against starting Steelers WR Antonio Brown.
NFL.com by Michael Fabiano
Another former co-worker, Fabiano mixes in video with his columns, and I actually really like the layout of these pieces. He’s not a big fan of Bills WR Stevie Johnson this week, but he likes Packers RB Eddie Lacy.
NumberFire.com by J.J. Zachariason
You might know J.J. better as the @LateRoundQB guy. He suggests finding a spot in your lineup for Bears WR Alshon Jeffery, but keeping Rams RB Daryl Richardson on the bench.
CBSSports.com by Jamey Eisenberg
Eisenberg likes DeAngelo Williams and is not a big fan of Anquan Boldin this week.
Yahoo! Sports by Joe Fortenbaugh
I’ve read this guy for a few years now, dating back to 2009 I think, when “National Football Post” first started up. Fortenbaugh likes DeAngelo Williams, but he suggests sitting Colin Kaepernick at Seattle.
TheFantasyFix.com by Brett Talley
He’s a good Twittererer, too. He thinks a good Sunday is ahead for Eagles RB Bryce Brown, but not-so-much for Titans RB Chris Johnson.
TheFakeFootball.com by Mike Braude
Pictures are for sissies. He likes Giants RB David Wilson to bounce back, but forewarns us about starting Cardinals RB Rashard Mendenhall against the Lions.
Not really a column as much as it is just a listing of players they like (Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor) and dislike (Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray) this week.
GridironExperts.com by Bob Talbot
He calls this column, “High/Low,” so I guess it’s a version of Start/Sit. He likes Eric Decker to rebound against the Giants, but a rebound is not expected from Bills RB C.J. Spiller.
FantasyPros911.com by Dan Stack
Stack suggests starting Ravens WR Marlon Brown, but that you should also consider sitting 49ers RB Frank Gore.
RotoInfo.com by Matthew Beck
Beck likes Giants TE Brandon Myers, but warns owners to steer clear from Bears QB Jay Cutler against the Vikings.
They share one start/sit option at each position.
Hope you liked this roundup of all the Week 2 Start ‘em, Sit’em columns. Feel free to post your comments below in case I missed any!
