We’re changing up the start or sit challenge scoring to better benefit your leagues! Check it out:

This week, I’ll be spotlighting running backs ranked around 24th-30th and tell you if I think they’ll finish 24th or better. Yahoo! will do the same.

Last Week’s Predictions:

Week 11 score: Yahoo 2-4, Me 6-0
Overall Season Score: Yahoo 28-32, Me 38-22

Start or Sit Ronald Jones, Sony Michel, or Derrius Guice in Week 12
Start or Sit Ronald Jones Week 12?

Last week was a bad one for Jones. With his team playing from behind, the run was abandoned. That left him with only 4 carries. Still, he had three times the touches of Peyton Barber. As long as their matchup against Atlanta doesn’t go off the rails, I think he’s a solid start. Atlanta has been storming, but let’s hold off on crowning them: They are 3-7. I say Start Ronald Jones in Week 12.

Yahoo! has Jones ranked 36th among running backs, expecting him to score 7.09 points. They say sit Ronald Jones in Week 12.


Start or Sit Sony Michel Week 12?

Michel has been super bad, scoring under 8 points in each of his last three matchups. I don’t see the game script against Dallas’ potent offense being one that causes New England to pack up and rely on between-the-tackles runs. Until he shows me he can hit double digits, I’m going to tell people to sit Sony Michel in Week 12.

Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football predicts Michel to finish 22nd among RBs and score 9.29 points, so they say to start Sony Michel in Week 12


Start or Sit Derrius Guice Week 12?

Guice saved his day with a 45-yard touchdown grab last week. Owners might be shy on him this week, but consider this: Washington was playing catchup to the Jets all game, but this week they face a Detroit squad that allows the most fantasy points to running backs. Hard for me to bench a talented back against the perfect matchup, so I say start Derrius Guice in Week 12.

Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football says Guice will finish 37th among RBs and score 7.08, so they want to sit Derrius Guice in Week 12.

Ronald Jones, Sony Michel, and Derrius Guice ranked for week 12

Evan Hoovler (that’s me): Jones > Guice > Michel
Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football: Michel > Jones > Guice
