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
Christian Kirk WR ARI SEA START Seattle is supposed to be without their top 2 CBs for this Thursday night matchup. Kirk should be in a good spot in what should be a high scoring affair.
Carlos Hyde RB SEA ARI START Watch the ACTIVE / INACTIVE list. Hyde sounds like he's going to go and Carson sounds like he's not. This should mean Hyde will get a good share of the RB touches.
Chase Edmonds RB ARI SEA START Despite Drake's return, Edmonds is still involved enough to produce for you. I'd roll with him again in week 11.
