Disclaimer: Starts and Sits are relative to where a player is ranked on the aggregate. In other words, a “Start” is someone I like more than most, and a “Sit” is the opposite. So if I say to start DeShaun Watson and sit Dak Prescott, that doesn’t mean I’d start Watson over Prescott, it just means I think Watson will exceed his expectations while Prescott will underperform his. Cool? Cool. Let’s get it. -Seltz
Trevor Siemian (vs. OAK) - OK, since I’m going back to the Siemian well (phrasing?) for the second week in a row, I may as well address the elephant in the room off the top. I did a terrible, awful, disgraceful job last week. It was an atrocious display of fantasy prowess, or lack thereof. TBH, it was embarrassing. I may never recover from it. Just kidding, I’m fine now. If anything, it’s reinvigorated me. This is going to be my best start/sit week ever. E-V-E-R. Now that we have that settled, let’s get back to Siemian. Last week I said this: “Siemian has been a beast through two weeks (#2 fantasy QB) and has looked good in doing it. I think he might just be legit.” First of all, yes I just quoted myself - get over it. Second, thank you Trevor Siemian for making me look like an a-hole. The only way Siemian can redeem himself is by making me look smart this week. Luckily, facing an Oakland pass defense that looked even dumber than me last week, I believe he will.
DeShaun Watson (vs. TEN) - I’m all in on DeShaun Watson. I loved him in college and had no doubt he was going to be a successful NFL quarterback. He’s a gamer who makes plays #SportsCliches. But I didn’t expect him to have fantasy value this soon. While he’s not ready to be a consistent week-to-week performer, he has a high floor thanks to his legs (averaging 54 YPG on the ground in two starts) and should be a nice matchup play all season. This week is one of those matchups, as he faces a Titans defense that’s allowed the third most fantasy points to opposing QB’s…
