Fantasy Football: Start/Sit Decisions for Week 7
Every week, The Fantasy Footballers ask followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, who fantasy football owners are having the toughest Sit/Start decisions on. Get assistance with The Fantasy Footballers Start/Sit tool — based on Andy, Jason, and Mike‘s weekly rankings. Here are the three of the most popular requests for Week 7:
Duke Johnson or Nick Chubb?
RB Duke Johnson
Cleveland Browns @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Consensus: 26 / Andy: 12 / Jason: 34 / Mike: 34
RB Nick Chubb
Cleveland Browns @ Tampa Bay Buccaneer
Consensus: 24 / Andy: 17 / Jason: 32 / Mike: 20
Fantasy Football owners rushed to add Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson when Carlos Hyde was traded to the Jaguars on Friday. Andy expects fantasy output from both remaining Browns running backs this week with Duke scoring more points in Half PPR scoring (and full PPR), while Jason is less optimistic in this first week without Hyde. Mike instructed fantasy owners to get Nick Chubb, and to be willing to spend your remaining FAAB to do it. Jason does slightly favor Duke Johnson in full PPR. Hopefully, we get workload questions answered in Week 7.
Andy Dalton or Jameis Winston?
QB Andy Dalton
Cincinnati Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers
Consensus: 5 / Andy: 6 / Jason: 3 / Mike: 6
QB Jameis Winston
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons
Consensus: 6 / Andy: 8 / Jason: 5 / Mike: 5
These two were a popular search for last week as well. Jameis lit up the box score in Week 6, but now takes on a solid Browns defense that is allowing the 8th least fantasy points to QBs. Dalton takes on the Chiefs who are allowing the 5th most points to opposing QBs. Both are very close in the rankings, but if you’re choosing between these QBs, everything (except Mike by one rank spot) points to Dalton in that juicy matchup.
Corey Clement or Kerryon Johnson?
RB Corey Clement
Philadelphia Eagles vs Carolina Panthers
Consensus: 22 / Andy: 23 / Jason: 22 / Mike: 22
Detroit Lions @ Miami Dolphins
Consensus: 14 / Andy: 18/ Jason: 12 / Mike: 16
Jason’s excitement for a Kerryon breakout grows and grows by the week. Pass catching specialist, Theo Riddick, has been ruled Out already. The real threat is LeGarrette Blount, who vultured two rushing TDs two weeks ago. The Panthers have been solid against opposing RBs for fantasy, while the Dolphins have not. The rankings for all three Fantasy Footballers point to Kerryon.
