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 honestly have no clue on this one at this point...

In standard, Valdez-Scantling @ NE, Devante Parker vs. Jets, or Tre'Quan Smith vs. Rams?

Maybe parker... more targets than the other two

Question #1 - Pick one option:
1. Start Ridley @ WAS (1:00pm ET) if Michel isn't cleared to go before this time.
2. Start Sutton vs HOU (4:05pm ET) if Michel isn't cleared to go before this time.
3. Put in Michel vs GB (8:20pm ET) and wait until his status is certain. If he can't go start one of Hogan vs GB, C. Patterson vs GB, or M. Gallup vs TEN (Pick one).


Question #2 - Pick one option:
1. Start V. McDonald @ BAL (1:00pm ET) if Gronk isn't cleared to go before this time.

2. Start B. Watson vs LAR (4:25pm ET) if Gronk isn't cleared to go before this time.
3. Put in Gronk vs GB (8:20pm ET) and wait until his status is certain. If he can't go start one of D. Allen vs GB, DAL TE vs TEN, or TEN TE vs DAL (Pick one).

I’m in bye week hell and Edelman is questionable. 

If if I have to who do you play in Standard?

Marquez Valdez- Scantling @ NE (3 great weeks in a row looking like the number 2 WR) or

Courtland Sutton vs HOU (inherited that number 2 spot with the DT trade and increased looks)

Lol. Well looks like we are asking the same thing except Standard and PPR

MVS or Sutton

A lot of these overlap, so I'm just going to try to tackle them all at once.

1. Edelman vs GB - Should be a shootout. I'm not too worried about his status.
2. Sutton vs HOU - Should be elevated with DT out. Has looked good in the last few weeks.
3. MVS @ NE - Should be a shootout. A little concerned about his targets if Cobb is good to go through (which is looking like he will be).
4. D.J. Moore vs TB - Good matchup, production has increased. I just don't feel as good about his as the guys above.
5. Tre'Quan Smith vs LAR - WR2 on a good offense, but I still feel like it's be M. Thomas / Kamara / Ingram's shw and that Tre'Quan will be an afterthought. And they are going up against the Rams.
6. D. Parker vs NYJ - Not a fan of the MIA offense. Parker looked good last week, but put him on the bench this week and reassess next week.

Full Pt PPR Help

WR Flex

Start E Sanders vs Hou or Juju vs Bal?

 

RB Flex

Was no doubt going to start Lat Murray until Cook news who I also own. No idea how this plays out.

Start one of L Murray/D Cook or M Ingram?

JuJu, Ingram.

The good news is they are all playing against NE in what will be a shootout.

 

I'd go MVS.

On the fence in Standard league.

 

 

Nick Chubb or Aaron Jones?

 

My other RB is Gurley.

 

I love both but also think Jones could breakout tonight in a barnburner. On the other hand, Chubb could go off as well with a new HC and OC.

I'd sit Sutton. I like the other 3 options and think you can afford to give Sutton a week to show us what he can do.

MVS. Nothing wrong with having a bunch of players on a good offense.

Full ppr

Amari cooper or

DJ moore

Amari. I'm a believer that he immediately becomes their WR1 and think he will improve DAL's passing game.
 

10 minutes ago, Vancouverite91 said:

Dj Moore vs Bucs or Kenny G vs Vikings

Golladay. With Tate out him and Marvin will be relied upon a bit more. Tough matchup, but still the better WR.

@Shortnphat I think I'd go Chubb. Tough decision as I do think it'll be a shootout, but GB has been reluctant to unleash A. Jones. I think until he has a true breakout game I'd go Chubb.

Honestly I wouldn't trust either of your NE options today - and I know that hurts because it should be a good game, but I just don't trust either to be effective this week. 

 

That being said, between Sutton/Ridley I'd probably go with whichever you think has the best opportunity to score a touchdown. Sutton's a good RZ target but it's his first game as a WR1 whereas Ridley should have some openings with Norman draping Julio. Maybe Sutton just because the Texans secondary is so atrocious. 

Q2 is an easy Vance for me. Watson hasn't done anything of note, and McDonald should have a decent floor especially with TE being a weaker spot in the Ravens Defense.

Chubb for me.  But I think it's a coin flip.  You should be fine especially having Gurley at RB1.

Start Watson or FitzMagic?  I benched Watson last week (thankfully still won) and I'm not entirely convinced he's back yet.  Especially at Mile High and DT88 probably not on the same page yet.

 

Fitz just seems like a no brainer start but who knows.

MVS and Ekeler. Can't really go with Cook yet given his uncertain workload. Carson is likely to play, don't really like Booker, and I'd play MVS or Tre'Quan.

Pick 3

Calvin Ridley 

Randall Cobb

Doug Baldwin 

Mark Ingram 

Tyrell Williams

Full PPR

Ingram, Ridley, Baldwin. Tyrell doesn't get enough volume and tough to tell what volume Cobb will get coming off an injury. I feel like SEA has to involved Baldwin more this week.

In full PPR hard to go with the RB over the WR. I'd go Golladay.

I'd say Fitz is far from a no brainer start. He's had a career of being inconsistent. He's shown moments of brilliance where you're wondering why he's not a starting QB, then he's had moment that make you question why he's even a backup QB in the NFL. Really tough to tell whether Fitzmagic or Fitztragic will show up. I don't mind going with Fitz if you don't have another decent QB option, but that's far from the case here. Watson should be treated as a high-end QB1. Yes, he's had some bad games. But he's had a lot more good than bad. Even if he still needs to get used to DT, he still has Nuk and Coutee to throw too. Plus he puts up rushing yards and it's unlikely he'll be pulled at half time even if he plays bad (can't say the same about Fitz). So I think Watson is the easy choice here.

If Gronk is out, roll with Hogan. If not wanting Hogan, Sutton is my next choice. 

 

Watson. If Gronk out, Brady looks to White, Edelman, Gordon. & Hogan. Good luck!
