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  
Isaiah Pacheco RB KC DEN START Denver is who you want your RBs to play against
Javonte Williams RB DEN KC SIT Williams is expected to play Thursday after getting in a full practice on Wednesday, but this feels like it'll be a 3 headed committee on a short week
Russell Wilson QB DEN KC SIT It's not a great matchup, but Denver looks to be in disarray I'd look elsewhere this week for a QB play.
