Weet 6 startem sitem 2022

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.

Carson WentzQBWASCHISTARTChicago is ranked 21st against opposing QBs. They also have had problems pressuring QBs. When Wentz isn't pressured he's been able to find his skill position players. Weeks 1 and 2 he broke 30 fantasy points. Look for a bounce back game for Wentz.
Justin FieldsQBCHIWASSTARTWashington is ranked 25th against opposing QBs and Fields is starting to put things together - plus he has the trump card of his legs.
Darnell MooneyWRCHIWASSTARTIf Fields is going to work, stack him with Mooney vs the 31st ranked defense vs opposing WRs.
