Week 7: Sit

Okay, first I am going to go on record and say that Roddy White will not appear on this list. He burned me last week and I am willing to admit that not only was I wrong but Roddy White is a must-start WR.

And now, here are some players who I would sit this week, either because they have bad matchups or I just do not think they will do well. But, like I always say, the start/sit decision is based on your alternatives. If you have other options, I would probably sit these guys.

QB Chad Pennington (MIA) vs. Baltimore Ravens: Pennington has been a serviceable fantasy QB lately, although he has done it mostly against some poor defenses. He has a much tougher matchup against the Ravens this week. And do not be fooled by what Peyton Manning did last week. Pennington is no Peyton Manning.

RB Ronnie Brown, RB Ricky Williams (MIA) vs. Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens only allow 66 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game on the ground. Although the Ravens have not seen the Wildcat Formation yet, I do not expect either of these guys to have a great day. However, Ronnie Brown has been playing very well — at least one TD in four straight games and at least 100 yards rushing in 2 of his last 3) — so if you do not have any other options, he is definitely an option to consider.

RB Chris Perry, RB Cedric Benson (CIN) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Perry has not been playing very well lately, and Benson is still working his way back into football shape after being out for a few months. And Pittsburgh has held opponents to around 67 yards rushing per game. With Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB again, the Bengals will likely struggle to move the ball regardless.

RB Jonathan Stewart, RB DeAngelo Williams (CAR) vs. New Orleans Saints: I am never a big fan of RBs by committee, because they are too difficult to predict. And on top of that, the Saints have actually been playing very well against the run. A couple weeks ago, they held Adrian Peterson to 32 yards on 21 carries. And they are only giving up 0.5 rushing TDs per game. If you have to start one, I would go with Steward, who is more likely than Williams to score.

WR Dwayne Bowe (KC) vs. Tennessee Titans: The Titans have a very solid defense, and are giving up under 200 passing yards per game. On top of that, they have allowed the fewest passing TDs this year in the NFL. Although Bowe is the main target in KC, I expect him (and the rest of the Chiefs) to struggle.

WR Santana Moss (WAS) vs. Cleveland Browns: Moss is coming off two poor performances (no catches against the Eagles, and only 2 catches for 22 yards against the Rams). And the Browns actually have a pretty solid defense, allowing only 186 passing yards and 0.8 passing TDs per game. The Redskins need to rebound from last week’s embarrassing loss to the Rams, but I am not confident that Moss will play a big role.

Also, remember that the following teams are on bye this week: Cardinals, Falcons, Jaguars, and Eagles.
