2013 Week 8: We Told You So…

As usual in between advising the best players to pick up in your league off of waivers, til before we give you advice on who to start this coming week.  Let’s do a little scorecard review of how our Week 8 Sit/Start advice went.  We do this to show, that hey – sometimes you have the right rationale and things don’t work out, sometimes you make a great call, and sometimes – well you’re just wrong from the get-go.

We had a great week this week.  Lots of hits and very few misses.  See, we told you to listen to us.

Here are a few of the highlights.

We told you so…

Sit ‘em WR Steve Smith: 4 catches  for 42 yards.  He is a WR3/flex pay now a days.  He should only be started based on match ups.  We hit it on the head last week.

Start ‘em – RB Lamar Miller:  18 for 89 and 3 for 23 we predicted about 120 yards.  We are almost psychic, but we are definitely awesome.

Sit ‘em – WR Dwayne Bowe: 1 catch for 7 yards.  one for 7… think about that.  Then look up his salary. Resist the urge to throw yourself off a bridge.

Start ‘em – RB Darren McFadden: 78 total yards and 2 tds  RUN DMC is back from injury and looked ok against the Steelers.  His production was more than ok.

Start ‘em – WR Antonio Brown: 9 catches for 82 yards. He is worth more in a PPR league, but this guy  is a must start every week.

Start ‘em RB Andre Ellington:  15 carries for 154 yards, a  td and 2 catches for 8.  He is an every week flex back from this day forward. I am pretty sure that this will be his average workload moving forward – results from that workload may very.

Start ‘em TE Jordan Reed: 8 Catches for 90 yards.  RG3 looks his way early and often.  He has quickly become a TE1.  Who woulda thunk that?  You are also glad we told you to pick him up weeks ago!

Sit ’em RB Gio Bernard:  5 carries for 18 yards  and 1 catch for 9 yards.  If I told you the Bengals would put up 49 points and he would only have 27 total yards, you would have told me I nuts.  I still might be nuts, but we told you to sit him.  Listen to us, we know of what we speak.

We missed…

Start ‘em _ RB Khiry Robinson: 7 carries for 9 yards.  ummm ya… that is not exactly they type of production we were looking for here.

Start ‘em RB Jacquizz Rodgers: 4 touches 18 yards. Steven Jackson is back and this looks to make ‘The Quizz”  unstart-able.

Start ‘em WR Greg Jennings: 1 catch 9 yards. That’s a steaming pile of crap, is what that is.

Sit ‘em –  Any Ram:  This was a miss if you started Stacy, otherwise you should listen to us.


Sit ‘em RB CJ Spiller: We told you to sit him and he didn’t even play.  Incomplete grade, but I bet you are glad you sat him.  You DID sit him, right?

Sit ‘em – QB Jason Campbell :  293 and 2 tds  Great numbers for a start in KC with limited talent around him.  He was only worth a desperation start last week.  If he does this again… then color us interested.

Start ‘em: QB Michael Vick: pulled his hammy again. Incomplete grade.
