Start & Sit: Week 7

Most fantasy seasons are just about at the midway point this week, so the stretch run is set to begin.

Here are some guys to consider starting/benching this weekend.

Start ‘Em


  • Matt Hasselbeck v. Rams: The Seahawks are a pass-happy team and this game could be a shootout. Hasselbeck played well last week even in the loss.
  • Drew Brees v. Falcons: Brees’ owners everywhere breathed a sigh of relief last weekend as the Saints’ quarterback returned to 2006 form. He should stay hot this weekend versus Atlanta in the SuperDome.


  • Reggie Bush v. Falcons: Pretty soon he will be a must-start regardless of matchup. I say that happens after this weekend.
  • Earnest Graham @ Lions: Yes, the Bucs added Michael Bennett. No, he does not affect Graham’s golden value this weekend.


  • Jerricho Cotchery @ Bengals: Cotchery is way overdue for a touchdown, and who better to get one against than the miserable Bengals’ defense?
  • Bobby Engram v. Rams: Engram will serve as Matt Hasselbeck’s go-to guy again this weekend with Deion Branch out.

Sit ‘Em


  • David Garrard @ Colts: Garrard’s been excellent so far, and the right choice at quarterback for the Jags. But the Colts are fresh coming off the buy and ready for the Jacksonville offense.
  • Marc Bulger @ Seahawks: Wait until he shows you something. I would not rush into starting him this weekend on the road.


  • Marion Barber v. Vikings: The Vikes are stingy against the run. I expect the Cowboys to use the aerial assault in this matchup.
  • Chester Taylor @ Cowboys: Likewise, the Cowboys also are good against the run. Besides, Adrian Peterson is the better runningback on the Vikings, and he should start despite the matchup.


  • Reggie Brown v. Bears: Brown showed signs of life last weekend. Keep him on the bench until he gets out of the coffin though.
  • Larry Fitzgerald @ Redskins: If you have a better option on the bench, you might want to consider him this weekend, especially if Tim Rattay is starting for the Cards. The Redskins’ secondary is vastly under-rated.

Note: I will be away from the computer most of the day Friday. If I get an opportunity to do some questions, I will answer as many as possible. Good luck this weekend! ~TH~

  1. Hey dude…Oaklands D vs. KC or Jax D vs. Indy?

  2. Oakland has a better shot at scoring more points defensively.

  3. thanks…sorry I posted that on week 1’s start em sit em too…hey one more…I’m starting MJD and I need one more back. Frank Gore against the Giants or Thomas Jones against Cincy?

  4. Despite underperforming, you gotta stick with Gore. TJ had one good week and plays a bad D in Cincy, but Gore is supposed to be the man and gives your team the best chance to win.

  5. Pick two

    Derrick Mason
    Roddy White
    Kevin Curtis Andrew Davis

  6. Pick Two

    Sorry its

    Andre Davis

  7. sup Haz-
    I really need help on WRs this week
    must start 3 WR and with all the Bye’s on my team here is what I have left.
    Ben Obomamu (pick up from FA)
    A. Toomer (picked up from FA)
    S. Mcdeezy
    Lance Moore (pick up from FA)

    Def- Need 1
    Oak, Cinci, Detroit

    I had Marion Barber as my flex for WR/RB but since you stated or think to sit ’em
    I have the following that I have on Bench

    D. mason
    K. Watson
    S. Mcdonald

    Should i stick with M. Barber?

    Thanks again!

  8. Starting TO at WR1, so I need 2 WRs from the following:

    S. McDonald (Det)
    A. Davis (Hou)
    C. Johnson (Det)
    D. Hester (Chi)
    A. Randle El (Was)
    B. Johnson (Ari)

    I know nothing about PHI’s D/ST – is this a good week to try Hester out?

  9. Who should I start at WR. I got Plax starting, but I need two more. So, should I start:
    Derek Mason (Bal) vs Buffalo
    L. Coles (NYJ) vs. Cincy
    or Mr. Waste of Draft Pick: Lee Evans (Buf) vs. Baltimore

  10. Also, is this the week to pick Roethlisberger over Romo? Big Ben is facing a Denver defense with a potentially gimpy Champ Bailey, while Romo’s facing an admittedly not-so-hot Minne secondary. Thoughts?
