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 Josh Allen 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 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
Tyson Bagent QB CHI CAR SIT Bagent looks like he'll get another start. But, Carolina is actually tough against opposing QBs and vulnerable vs opposing RBs. That should describe Chicago's game plan.
D'Onta Foreman RB CHI CAR START Khalil Herbert might be back this week, so this could look a bit closer call than if he isn't active. But, this is a "revenge" game and Foreman has run well. Add in that this is a plus matchup
Chuba Hubbard RB CHI CAR START If Carolina is to win this game, Chuba needs to deliver.
