Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em





Fantasy Football: Start Em, Sit Em: Week 18

Rather than quickly listing start em and sit em players on my Week 18 NFL Picks page, I thought I'd devote a new page for this. Follow @walterfootball for updates.







Kansas City Chiefs (11-5) at Denver Broncos (7-9)

Start Em:
  • Darrel Williams, RB, Chiefs
    The Broncos struggle against the run.

  • Javonte Williams, RB, Broncos
    I'm going to continue to start Javonte Williams because he's so good.

  • Obvious Starts:
    KC: QB Patrick Mahomes, WR Tyreek Hill, TE Travis Kelce.
    DEN: TE Noah Fant.

    Sit Em:
  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Chiefs
    Clyde Edwards-Helaire is out for Saturday's game.

  • Mecole Hardman, WR, Chiefs
    Mecole Hardman has seen a dip in snaps recently.

  • Broncos Receivers
    It's hard to trust these guys with Drew Lock or an injured Teddy Bridgewater.

    Start Em:
  • Obvious Starts:
    DAL: None.
    PHI: None.

    Sit Em:

    Green Bay Packers (13-3) at Detroit Lions (2-13-1)

    Start Em:

    GB: None.
    DET: RB D'Andre Swift.

    Sit Em:
  • Packers Starters
    The Packers are likely to rest their starters.

    I'm not buying Brock Wright as a viable replacement for T.J. Hockenson.






    Chicago Bears (6-10) at Minnesota Vikings (7-9)

    Start Em:
  • Darnell Mooney, WR, Bears
    We just saw what the Packers' receivers did to Minnesota's secondary.

    CHI: RB David Montgomery.
    MIN: RB Dalvin Cook, WR Justin Jefferson.

    Sit Em:
  • No one of note

    Carolina Panthers (5-11) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12-4)

    Start Em:
  • Obvious Starts:
    CAR: WR D.J. Moore.
    TB: None.

    Sit Em:
  • Panthers Running Backs
    The Panthers split carries, and it's tough to run on the Buccaneers.

  • Buccaneers Offense
    The Buccaneers may sit their starters. Bruce Arians said otherwise, but he could always change his mind.

    New Orleans Saints (8-8) at Atlanta Falcons (7-9)

    Start Em:
  • Obvious Starts:
    NO: QB Taysom Hill, RB Alvin Kamara.
    ATL: None.

    Sit Em:

    Seattle Seahawks (6-10) at Arizona Cardinals (11-5)

    Start Em:

    San Francisco 49ers (9-7) at Los Angeles Rams (12-4)
