Joe FlaccoQBDENKCSITThis is a tempting matchup for Flacco, but he's only put up one startable week so far. KC is also very vulnerable vs the running back. I suspect that will eat up most of the fantasy productin.
Philip LindsayRBDENKCSTARTDenver will likely want to keep KC's offense on the sideline and they'll leverage Lindsay to make that happen.
Demarcus RobinsonWRKCDENSITRobinson burst on the scene after the Tyreek Hill injury in week 1. But, Hill's back and Robinson will start losing some snaps to a rotation with Pringle and Hardman.

In this Start Em / Sit Em column each week, I'm looking to find some fringe players that you might consider starting each week and comment based on their matchups. Early on, I'll base my selection of candidates on where they were with respect to ADP. I'm not going to try to pad my stats by suggesting your start Patrick Mahomes each week, but instead trying to dig deep and find some nuggets for players to avoid or to go after. These are coin flip guys and if I can finish the year at better than 60% I'll consider it a success. My metrics to get the start decision are: QB 20 pts or more, RB, WR or TE need to score 12 pts or more for a successful endorsement. Defense/Special Teams should put in 8 points or more to get those picks right. I'll look at ~3-6 players on each Thursday night's game and ~ 6 players for the rest of the week to get you going. This year I'm going to be looking at different ways to integrate daily fantasy pricing and Vegas odds into my decision making process. Good Luck this year!
