2011 Week 9 Fantasy Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Will Jacobs save your team? (nydailynews.com)

This football season is really heating up and the fantasy football season only has a few weeks left until the playoffs start.  Playoffs?  Yes playoffs.  Now is the time to make your playoff run.  I am currently in three fantasy leagues, including a league with my fellow sportswriters of this website, and i have the most points and best record in all three, so I must be doing something right.  Hopefully, you have been following my advice in this column and doing well in your league as well.  I am sure you are glad you started Eli Manning and benched Philip Rivers last week.  Feel free to comment, positively or negatively on anything you see below.

Start ‘Em

QB:  Tim Tebow (Oakland loves giving up fantasy points to quarterbacks)

RB:  Brandon Jacobs (If Ahmad Bradshaw does not play)

WR:  Mario Manningham (If Nicks does indeed sit, I bet Manningham scores in the top 5 WR’s for the week)

TE:  Dustin Keller

DEF:  Dallas Cowboys

Sit ‘Em

QB:  Ryan Fitzpatrick

RB:  Willis McGahee

WR:  DeSean Jackson

TE:  Rob Gronkowski (let this be the only week you bench him)

DEF:  New England Patriots

About Saltzy

Stats:Age: 34 Sex: Male Favorite sports: Baseball, Football, Basketball Favorite Players: Jose Reyes, Eli Manning, Amare' Other hobbies: Poker, Fantasy Sports Title: Contributor Contact: saltz@sportsofnewyork.com I am a New York native who grew up watching the Mets, Giants and Knicks. I was too young to fully appreciate the championships the Mets won in 1986 and the Giants won in 1990, but was fully appreciative of the Giants 2007 Super Bowl win. I count 2-3-08 as one of the best days of my life. I moved to Boston with a few coworkers of mine that I hardly knew and took a big chance of moving to a city I barely knew anything about. I got along well with my roommates and my new city and decided to make it my permanent home, despite having difficulties following my favorite teams, due to living so far away from New York. I am extremely passionate about sports and will discuss the Giants Super Bowl win over the Patriots anytime, anyplace and with anybody. I am a social worker in the day and sports writer by night. I enjoy slaving over my laptop writing about sports. My ultimate dream would be to become a professional Texas Hold'em player.
