Week 10 Start Em Sit Em: Jacoby Ford, Mike Tolbert, and More Questionable Starts

Fantasy football owners are asked to make hard decisions on a week-to-week basis, and Week 10 of the 2011 NFL season is no different.

There are quite a few players that are dealing with injuries, bad matchups, or bad play, and their owners are left trying to figure out whether they are worth the start, or need to take a sit.

Start 'em sit 'em is the age old fantasy football conundrum, and this week's features some very questionable players.

Here's your latest starts and sits for Week 10:

Start: Jacoby Ford, WR Oakland Raiders

Now that the Raiders have their new quarterback, Carson Palmer, it's time to start adjusting our lineups around him. Palmer is in the bay to stay, and he seems to really enjoy throwing to Jacoby Ford.

Ford five catches for 105 yards and a touchdown last weekend against Denver. Expect more of the same against a reeling Chargers defense.

Williams is becoming a bad start now that Jonathan Stewart looks to be the featured back. 

His carries have gone down in the past few weeks. He went from 12-to-10-to-7 in the past few weeks, and those numbers don't look to be going up.

Start: Mike Tolbert, RB San Diego Chargers

Tolbert looked pretty good last weekend against the Packers on his way to 83 yards and a touchdowns. He's essentially splitting time with Ryan Mathew's, but Tolbert is healthier.

He should eat up some big chunks of yardage this weekend against a Raiders team that's giving up 139.6 yards per game on the ground.

Sit: Matthew Stafford, QB Detroit Lions

I'm not a huge fan of Stafford and his matchup with the Chicago Bears. The Bears just went out and shut down LeSean McCoy, so I can only imagine what they will do against the Lions non-existant running game.

Essentially the Lions offense will be put on Stafford's shoulders, and excuse me if I have a hard time trusting a guy that has looked extremely bad under pressure this season with four picks and numerous bad throws behind Detroit's offensive line.
