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
David Montgomery RB DET GB START If Montgomery is active, I'd go ahead and play him against GB's run defense. They're ranked 29th vs the run.
Luke Musgrave TE GB DET START Musgrave has been productive and Love has been efficient. Deteroit's defense has been excellent vs the run but has been weakest vs opposing Tes
Sam LaPorta TE DET GB START LaPorta has been on fire to start the season, I'd keep riding him in this Thursday night divisional matchup.
