Your playoff lives are on the line!
No need for a cute write-up.
You need to win and I’m here to help. So here it is. This weeks S.S.S.P.O.T.W
Sit : Marcus Mariota – TEN – He’s been one of the biggest disappointments this year. He’s failed to break 20 points in PPR leagues the past 9 weeks, and although he has a cushy matchup against the Texans this week, he will still be hard to trust after only throwing for 96 yards in a week 4 matchup
Start : Alex Smith – KC – Its been tough sledding for Smith after his hot start to the year. So tough that there have been calls for Patrick Maholmes. He’s gotten his 2nd vote of confidence from Andy Reid and I think he rewards him with a nice game against a jets team that gives up the 11th most fantasy points to QBs
Sneaky : Eli Manning – NYG – He had a terrible game on Thanksgiving against the Redskins. Sterling Shepard was a late scratch and they couldn’t get anything going. But this week they have a plus matchup against the Raiders who give up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs.
Sit : DeMarco Murray – TEN – He hasnt looked very good all year. The only reason he had a TD last week was because he vultured one from Derrick Henry. He has a matchup against the Texans that give up the least Fantasy points to RBs
Start : Tevin Coleman – ATL – The guy has been money lately and that offense if finally starting to roll. They play a tough Minnesota team and Devonta Freeman still might play but he’s been way too productive not to deserve a spot in your starting lineup.
Sneaky : Isaiah Crowell – CLE – It’s been up and down lately for Cro. Although he’s had 95 yards in 3 of the last 4 games and gets a matchup with the Chargers that give up the 3rd most points to opposing RBs.
Sit : Kenny Stills – MIA – Stills has been a WR3/Flex the past couple of weeks but has a tough matchup against Denver and the no fly zone. Sit Stills.
Start : Marqise Lee – JAX – Had a bad matchup with Patrick Peterson last week where he was held to 1 catch. To be fair, Peterson does that to everyone. He had averaged 10 targets the last 4 weeks and gets a soft matchup with the Colts.
Sneaky : Seth Roberts – OAK – I really dont trust Roberts to hold on to the ball but both Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree could miss this next game against a beatable Giants secondary and someone will have to catch the ball.
Sit : Jack Doyle – IND – Doyle has been pretty good after finding his groove with Brissett but they play the Jaguars this week
Start : Evan Engram – NYG – Struggles the past 2 weeks but gets the Raiders.
Sneaky : Ricky Seals-Jones – ARI – Hes come from outta nowhere for 7/126/3 the past 2 weeks. With Blaine Gabbart under center I think its safe to put him in your lineup
