We’re changing up the start or sit challenge scoring to better benefit your leagues! Check it out:
This week, I’ll be spotlighting quarterbacks ranked around 12th and tell you if I think they’ll finish 12th or better. Yahoo! will do the same.
My predictions last week for quarterbacks.
Week 10 score: Yahoo 1-5, Me 3-3
Overall Season Score: Yahoo 26-28, Me 32-22
Start or Sit Start or Sit Carson Wentz, Jimmy Garoppolo, or Philip Rivers in Week 11
Start or Sit Carson Wentz Week 11?
Wentz hasn’t had a good week in a month, where he ranks as the #32 quarterback in fantasy points per game (I’ll let you figure out how many QBs are in the league). et 88% of owners are still holding him, for some reason. Well, it’s not going to get better this week against a New England pass defense that allows the fewest points to opposing fantasy quarterbacks. Keep him holstered if you have the roster spot, as he has a nice end of season schedule, but definitely sit Carson Wentz in week 11.
Yahoo! has Wentz ranked 14th among quarterbacks, expecting him to score 20.14 points. They say sit Carson Wentz in Week 11.
Start or Sit Jimmy Garoppolo Week 11?
Looking at Garoppolo’s stats, it can seem like sitting him is a sound decision. After all, he’s only topped 20 points once in the past seven games. However, that one time was a 37 point monster game against a depleted Arizona defense, and it was recent (week 9). Garoppolo’s opponent this week? That same Cardinals defense. Start Jimmy Garoppolo in week 11 and don’t overthink it.
Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football predicts Garoppolo to finish 15th among QBs, which is a vote to sit Jimmy Garoppolo in week 11.
Start or Sit Philip Rivers Week 11?
Philip Rivers has a lot of buzz this week, as he plays a Kansas City team that always seems to end up in shootouts. However, Rivers hasn’t topped 12 points in his last three games, much less put together a top-twelve finish. He might not have a decent LT to protect his blindside, and he made some truly mindboggling decisions against the Raiders. We’ll let someone else roll the dice and pick a safer waiver wire option. Sit Philip Rivers in week 11, and every week until the Chargers get their game back together.
Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football says Rivers will finish 12th among QBs, so they want to start Philip Rivers week 11
Start or Sit Carson Wentz, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Philip Rivers ranked for week 11:
Evan Hoovler (that’s me): Garoppolo > Rivers > Wentz
Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football: Rivers > Wentz > Garoppolo
Be sure to check back next week to see which of us is the superior fantasy prognosticator.
