Hello all and Happy Thanksgiving.
Here are some Starts and Sits for todays games. The rest will follow later tonight and Friday.
Packers at Lions
Sit ’em – WR Kris Durham: He was a nice story, but now that Nate Burleson is back and getting targets, his value takes a huge hit. There are plenty of WR options out there and this is the time to employ one of them.
Sit ’em – : Packers Defense- They aren’t the worst start of the week, certainly. As a defense they get to the QB, but they give up a good amount of yards and points. They are a Def2 at best. If you have that other defense, this is the time to play them. Oh, and they are playing the Lions with the 7th ranked offense in Detroit.
Raiders at Cowboys
Start ’em RB Rashard Jennings – Ride the hot hand! This Dallas defense is terrible and gave up over 200 yards to a Giants team that is average at running the ball. The Raiders are 4th in the league in rushing. Dallas is 30th in defending the run. I still can’t believe I am writing this, but start Jennings and feel good about it.
Steelers at Ravens
Start ’em – Steelers Defense: This is a bit of a sneaky play this week, but let me explain. The Ravens are 27th in the league in Rushing and 29th overall in offense. They are inconsistent at best. The Steelers are playing much better as of late. The Steelers are a match up play. If you have another defense with a great match up, go with that. If you have the Steelers and are debating on what to do, consider this match up today.
