2011 Week 1: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Eli Manning (

While we all have fantasy teams, there are times where we may be uncertain whom to start and whom to sit. This weekly article will help guide you in making your lineup choices for the week. The “Start ‘Em” players may not score the most points at their respective positions but they should score a lot more points than they normally would. The “Sit ‘Em” players may not score the least at their respective position but should score less than they normally would. The following players have extremely favorable matchups this week and should start in most formats:

Start ‘Em

  • Deangelo Williams
  • Jamaal Charles
  • Darren McFadden
  • Jahvid Best
  • Cedric Benson
  • Whichever quarterback starts for the Colts
  • Eli Manning
  • Chad Henne
  • David Garrard
  • Matt Hasselbeck
  • Darrius Heyward-Bey
  • Santiono Holmes
  • Steve Smith (Carolina)
  • NY Giants Defense

Sit ‘Em

  • Anyone on the Vikings not named Adrian Peterson
  • Dwayne Bowe
  • Greg Jennings
  • Dez Bryant
  • Rashard Mendenhall
  • Michael Turner
  • Miami Defense
  • Vikings Defense
  • Marques Colston
  • Brandon Lloyd

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: 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.
