Every week owners have a tough time picking which player to ride on or which player to sit on the bench. With this article, we aim to help fantasy owners determine which players to start or sit.
PLAYERS TO START
WR: Mike Williams LAC (Projected: 12.46 FP)
Mike Williams has finally arrived after seven weeks. He has been hurt throughout the middle of the year and fantasy owners may have given up on him. Williams then proceeds to catch six balls for 116 yards and a TD. The Chargers face a Titans secondary that had struggles against the Jaguars. With the Chargers having so many offensive options, Mike Williams might be destined to save his fantasy owners again.
RB: Zonovan Knight NYJ (Projected: 11.91 FP)
Zonovan Knight is primed for another great showing. He scored his first NFL TD in the loss to the Bills. He was one of the few offensive bright spots in that bad weather game. He faces a Detroit defense which is one of the worst in the league. His ability to catch the ball out the backfield makes him a scary dual-threat weapon for the Jets.
QB: Trevor Lawrence JAX (Projected: 16.70 FP)
Trevor Lawrence is playing the best stretch of his career. He had his best game of the year last week when he threw for 368 yards and three TDs against the Titans. He has scored 20+ FP in three of the last four games. He faces a Dallas defense that struggled against the Houston Texans. Look for Trevor to have a great game against them.
PLAYERS TO SIT
DEF/ST: Green Bay Packers GB (Projected: 9.51 FP)
I think fantasy is underrating the Los Angeles Rams again. Many people expected the Las Vegas Raiders to destroy the Rams but the opposite happened. I think the Green Bay defense will have some success but not reach the projected score. The Rams are motivated with Baker Mayfield as the QB. Now that he has some reps with his teammates, they may start to look better than expected.
TE: Mark Andrews BAL (Projected: 12.63 FP)
Mark Andrews has been on the downslide ever since Week 7. His highest output since then has been 12.3 FP in Week 11 and has reached double digits just twice. He faces a tough Cleveland defense that will make life hard for whoever will start QB for Baltimore. The Ravens will probably focus on the run game so don’t expect much from Andrews.
