Start or Sit - Week 13

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

The playoffs are just around the corner and many of you are desperate for a win that would secure a spot in the post-season.

That's where we come in with our weekly start or sit column.

Like I tell you every week, you probably won't find your stud players on this list. Guys like Adrian Peterson, Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald should always be started, regardless of who they're playing so it's a waste of time to even mention them.

Send your questions to: molsen@chicagosuntimes.com

and between Ricky and myself, we'll do the best we can to help you out.

Otherwise, good luck this weekend.

Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 13

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

As the season progresses it becomes harder and harder to find players on the waiver wire even worth a second glance.

By this point, all the good guys are gone and the only quarterbacks floating around out there are either injured or buried on the depth chart.

But my friends, please, do not worry.

Because here are some waiver wire options that you might want to take a look at before your league counterparts can beat you to the punch.

Each and every year there are a few guys that lay around on the waiver wire for a few weeks before exploding onto the scene and becoming fantasy legends like Ryan Grant from a year ago.

It's important you keep evaluating your talent each week and don't be afraid to drop someone on your roster that has been getting by on name recognition alone.

Start or Sit - Week 12

This season is flying by and before you know it the playoffs will be here, making it essential for you to pick up some wins in the next two to three weeks.

That's where we come in with our weekly start or sit column.

First of all I'd like to apologize for those of you who sent in questions for our Fantasy Mailbag on Friday.

Technical difficulties made it impossible for us to post anything up until Sunday around noon, which of course was way too late for our advice to help you out.
