Originally written on FF Locker Room  |  Last updated 11/11/14
Despite the concussion last week, my start of the week and friend of the FF Locker Room, Cecil Shorts III hauled in 7 catches for 77 yards and a TD, which is plenty good to be regarded as a success. I also am very happy that one guy I talked up all week here and on Twitter, Danario Alexander, followed through with a 100+ receiving yardage game. All in all, I didn’t have many misses last week, although there were a few sits that I whiffed on. In other words, you better start everyone that I put on this list, because my sits outperform my starts, apparently. Anyways, I’m sorry for getting this up later than usual and I don’t have a ton of time to write this, so I’ll give you the condensed version of this week’s start/sit column. Though the research is there, I don’t have as much time to explain my reasoning. Start of the Week Greg Jennings (vs. Lions) – Greg Jennings should be off the snap count this weekend and his legs should be fully rested after sitting most of the season. While a little underrated, the Lions secondary is still weak at best and, oh, Jordy Nelson is out. The Rest Josh Freeman (vs. Eagles) – While the Eagles and Nick Folk have been playing better as of late, they’re still giving up a ton of points. Matt Schaub (@ Patriots) – Yep, I’m putting Schaub, the owner of a nice running game, in the start column. The logic is simple. The Patriots will look to exploit Houston’s inconsistent secondary and Schaub is going to need to be throwing the ball a ton by the 4th quarter to keep up. Steven Jackson (@ Bills) – Ever since the Rams let the big dog loose, he’s been rolling people. It helps that the Bills are one of the weaker tackling teams in the NFL. Mike Williams (vs. Eagles) – Who is going to take away the deep ball, seriously? Martellus Bennett (vs. Saints) – The Saints tend to let tight ends run wild. Eli hasn’t had as much time to throw as he did in the first half of the season, thanks to an imploding offensive line, so he should be looking for the outlet pass early and often. Cleveland Browns D/ST (vs. Chiefs) – It’s a delicate subject, but the Chiefs might have a little hangover from their win. It takes a lot of guts and emotion to play like they did last week and that can be very draining. Sit of the Week Tony Romo (@ Bengals) – Nate Livings, starting guard, is going to be out of this one. He was going to block Geno Atkins, but now no one is going to block Atkins. The Bengals bring in the league’s top pass rush against Dallas, who have one of the worst lines in the league. The Bengals corners are having one of their best coverage seasons so far so it should take a while to get open. Romo is good at creating time, but not THAT good. The Rest Stevan Ridley (vs. Texans) – This goes back to my point above with Schaub. We’ve seen crazy game plans from the Pats before, I just think they’re going to spread the field and attack through the air. Lance Moore (@ Giants) – Tom Coughlin is a smart man. He also knows you need to take away the Saints deep game. Vernon Davis (vs. Dolphins) – Come on, it’s Vernon Davis. In the playoffs, you need your consistent players and/or stud players playing and this year, Davis has been neither, he’s too much of a risk this time of year. Baltimore Ravens D/ST (@ Redskins) – The Ravens have been underwhelming this year and struggle against the type of running scheme the Redskins roll with.
