2011 Fantasy Football Start/Sit Advice: Week 1

Here’s a look at LestersLegends' sit and start advice as you set your lineups for the opening week of the NFL season.

 

Quarterbacks

Start

Kevin Kolb, vs. Carolina:  The Larry Fitzgerald and Kolb connection gets a good matchup to get off on the right foot. Kolb will be looking for redemption.

Sit

Sam Bradford, vs. Philadelphia:  Tough first draw as Bradford has no game film to prepare for how Philly will use their three shutdown corners. Joe Flacco and Tony Romo also get downgraded this week.

 

Running Backs

Start

DeAngelo Williams, at Arizona:  I know he’s in a timeshare with J-Stew, but D-Will got PAID. He’s going to lead the team in carries. The Panthers will look to take the pressure of Cam Newton in his professional debut.

Sit

Ryan Grant, vs. New Orleans:  Grant hasn’t done enough to avoid a RBBC with James Starks.

 

Wide Receivers

Start

Mike Thomas, vs. Tennessee:  Thomas caught 12 passes against Tennessee last year and should be quite active in this one as well.

 

Sit

Jeremy Maclin, at St. Louis:  Considering how much time he missed, that’s a gamble I wouldn’t take in the opening week.

 

Tight Ends

Start

Brent Celek, at St. Louis:  Vick has said he needs to get Celek more involved this year, and with Maclin less than 100 percent, it is a good time to use Celek to move the chains.

 

Sit

Tony Gonzalez, at Chicago:  Last year Gonzo regressed and I’m afraid it’s only going to get worse.

 

Kickers

Start

Rob Bironas, at Jacksonville:  Bironas kicked five field goals and three extra points in his two meetings with Jacksonville last year.

Sit

Dan Carpenter, vs. Miami:  Carpenter failed to kick a FG against New England in two years. He had just three PATs as well.

 

Defenses

Start

San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks:  The Seahawks are sticking with Tarvaris Jackson despite his horrible play. The Niners should feast on him.

Sit

Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints:  I love the Packers defense, but starting off against the Saints with weeks to prepare is a tough draw.
