Every week, there are certain fantasy studs that you simply have to start no matter what, such as Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson.

There are also a good number of players you know you should sit each week, such as a fringe wide receiver like Jason Hill going up against an extremely tough Cleveland Browns pass defense.

And then there are those players whom you have no idea whether to start or sit.

Here are a few not so obvious guys at each major fantasy position that you might not know what to do with, but for whom the stats and other information dictate one way or the other.
