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.

Having already started Mostert (got me points, but it probably out for the year now), I'm down to one... well, two... big questions...

 

Vs the Dolphins, do I start TE Chris Herndon or RB Elijah McGuire (presuming he's active)?

 

Or... should I waive Elijah and pick up WR Anthony Miller (at Bills) off waivers to start in my last flex spot?

Carson vs Chargers

Or

Cohen @ Bills

 

Standard as my flex

 

the experts lean heavily on Carson this week over Cohen, but Cohen seems so consistent.

It's probably because Carson is a starter while Cohen is a backup, but I'd go with Cohen.

If your only option in a 12 team .5 ppr league and down by -2 pts for foolishly gambling with oak d. Is kupps upside worth starting? When your option aside from the wire is Taylor gabriel

 

 

So Taylor gabriel or cooper kupp

Im having a real hard time picking QB this week between FitzMagic @CAR or Watson @DEN. I am not crazy about Watson going to Denver vs a good pass rush but cant ignore the 5TDs he threw last week. FitzMagic should have a great game unless he throws 3 picks and gets benched which is always possible with him.

Cohen only had 6 touches last week but he did make a huge play to save his day. I'm concerned that in games where the Bears should win easily he could disappoint. I'd go with Carson due to the extra volume. Something tells me that things may start shifting Howard's way.

Wow! How did you manage this?

 

Hunt for damn sure... Peterson looks like gold... Hmm... I guess White.

Would you go either over Allen vs Seattle? Tough matchup with tough weather forecast...

Smith. Baldwin may surprise you, but you are more likely to come away disappointed.

Golladay for sure

Howard as Bears should run the ball frequently vs Buff

Valdez-Scantling in a shootout

I was actually leaning for Golladay for odd man out. He’s against a tough D and I think stafford will struggle. Maybe he even gets matched up with Rhodes. I realize he’s in for more targets with Tate gone but we just don’t no what the lions like yet.

The rain out here in Washington is a light rain, so I wouldn't worry about that too much. I know the Seahawks corners are pretty good, but I'd still start Allen unless your other options all look great.
