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.







Player Pos Team Opp Start / Sit Comment
Ryan Tannehill QB TEN IND SIT Tannehill has been very efficient and he has solid weapons to work with, but Indy is a tough defense, look for a floor game this week.
Michael Pittman WR IND TEN START TY potentially returns this week. Pittman's been getting more integrated into the offense and coming off 7 targets vs Baltimore last week. I like his odds to put in a startable number this week.
Jonnu Smith TE TEN IND START TE is a rough position this week. For that reason, if you have Jonnu I think you start him unless you have one of the top 5 TEs. He's got a solid chance for a TD any given week.
