NFL Start/Sit Thread 2018 Week 9


This thread is for discussing who you're starting and/or sitting for week 9 of the 2018 NFL season.


Because most non-obvious start/sit decisions depend on roster/format/league-specific context, feel free to include any of these considerations in your start/sit questions. Comments along the lines of "Who's Starting Player A?", "I'm Starting Player B over Player C", etc. in player threads may be moved to this thread or removed, at the discretion of the RW forums staff.

I'm in a 20-team full-point PPR league with half my roster on a bye this week. With that said, I've been scraping the barrel.

 

I think I have most of my starters set depending on a few injury situations, so I'm now down to one burning question...

 

Do I flex start Jets TE Chris Herndon vs the Dolphins or Raiders WR Brandon LaFell vs the 49ers?

 

I think I go Lafell if he’s getting starter reps (92% snap count last week) and with the potential for some short fields against SF.

Having trouble deciding who to start in my flex. (0.5 PT PPR league) WHIR. 

WR Sanders vs Houston
RB Crowell vs @Miami
RB Jalen Richards @SF (Thur game) 

Sanders for sure! He's a stud, He'll be getting more targets with DT gone. Keenum may have trouble going deep in this game due to Houston's pass rush so I see Sanders getting tons of targets in the slot.

 

Crowell is tempting in a great machup but I just can't trust him.

 

Richard doesn't have much upside and needs to be playing from behind which may not be the case this week....but probably every other week this year.

Sanders easily this week. Been one of the top WR in the game so far, and with DT gone that should hopefully mean they rely on Sanders/Sutton more. I've been the biggest pessimist about the DEN offense this year, but I think you've got to roll with them while they're producing.

- Beathard vs OAK (Thursday game)

- Carr @ SF (Thursday game)

I guess Flacco. Fitzmagic is too streaky to trust. Beathard is playing hurt. Carr plays for Oakland. Flacco's a decent bye week option.

Start Sony Michel this week? Unsure if he will drop out last minute. Don't have a backfill.

Start him if he plays, don't start him if he doesn't play. Not really sure if I fully understand the question though where you say you don't have a backfill. Right now if you decided not to play him, who would you put in? You could likely wait until Sunday and find someone if we find out later he can't go.

Sutton
DJ Moore
DT
Breida

I think you're fine going with Sutton and DJ Moore. However, if it looks like DT catches on to the HOU offense early and won't be limited this week due to the trade, I'd start him over DJ. Likely no real way to know that for sure, but I'd just keep up to date on DT's status for week 9.

I'd go LaFell. Obviously neither are great, but I'd expect Herndon to get like 2 targets. Of course recently whenever he's been target it has been in the end-zone, but still hard to trust. Even as a WR3 on a bad offense, I'd go with the WR over TE.

Sit Breida, no question.

 

I doubt Hill plays with a groin injury, I'd put Ridley in his spot. If Michel happens to sit then I'd use Sutton.

s--- I have Conner and Richard as my RBs this week. Hadn’t considered that about Richard. Best on wire would be the likes of Booker or Ito Smith. Thoughts? I’ll have to play Richard or one of them if I can’t pull off a trade (two days to clear) before we game time tonight.

Tough to count on Michel's health. I'd say Breida would be your best option to start over him, though it would be a knife to the heart if you start him and Michel comes back and dominates. 

 

All in all, keep as is. If you have to you can play Sutton over him as we'll have a better idea of his status come Sunday at 4 than we will tonight at 8.

Standard League

 

Need 2 of

Howard (@BUF)

Drake (NYJ)

Martin (@SF)

 

Siding with Drake and Howard, though Martin will likely have higher usage than Drake. Still like Drake to break a big one.

 

Need 1 of

Cooper (TEN)

Tre Smith (LAR)

Lockett (LAC)

Parker (NYJ)

 

Completely up in the air. Siding with Cooper (over Parker) because I feel Jerry will want to show off his new toy on the national stage. Will Butler be on him (hopefully)?

Need to start one:

 

Ito @ WAS

M. Davis vs LAC

 

 

I really don't see Ito getting much at all against the Redskins stout run D. Besides that, the Falcons don't care to run the ball, and especially won't care if they fall behind in the game.

 

Mike, who is currently sitting on my league's waiver wire, is in for a tough outing as well against a good Chargers run D, so, this isn't looking good.

 

Ugh...

 

I don't see either RB really getting much. Maybe start Ito if you must, but only because they do like to use him in the red zone so maybe he gets a TD.

1pt ppr & need 2 RB & 2 Flex:  

Howard at BUF

Richard at SF

Funchess vs TB

L Murray vs DET - D Cook did practice yesterday

Michel vs GB - Sunday night game & no options if they decide to sit him last minute

Breiday vs OAK (questionable)

C Godwin at CAR

Right now, looking at: Howard, Richard, Funchess, & L Murray. Unsure how much SF will use Breida tonight, even if he does play.

I think your line up looks good. I would like to use Breida as well, but don't know his status or how much SF will use him. If he was healthy, i would put him in over Michel, since we don't know his status either & it's a Sunday night game. May have to put Sutton in for him, if Michel isn't cleared before the DEN - HOU game. Good luck!

I like all three options at RB. Defintely stick with Drake, and then it's a close call between Howard and Martin. If the Bears can build a lead I can see them running out the clock with Howard, but at the same time I can see Martin having his best game of the season. I'd say the safe pick is Howard... the shoot-for-the-sky pick is Martin.  If you're close to your opponent in points, stick with Howard and Drake. 

 

Cooper vs Ten all the way.

Definitely flex Funchess at TB. 

Breida is playing so I'd go with him at RB.

Howard at Buff would be my other RB

 

and then...

 

hmm...

 

I'm not really liking any of them. Flip a coin between Richard and Murray.

I'm liking the Breida play, and only because Ingram really does have a killer matchup. I just see the 49ers turning on their running game. I'm even considering starting Mostert this week, and it's not because I think Breida won't play. I'm thinking there will be plenty of carries for both.
