The AEE Fantasy Start/Sit List – QB edition – Week 13

The AEE Fantasy Start/Sit List – QB edition – Week 13

The Fantasy Football 2019 NFL regular season. As we close out the regular season, let’s take a look at the best starts and sits heading into Week 13 of your fantasy football matchups.

Start of the Week: Jameis Winston @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Last week, I had Jameis Winston as the sit of the week. After watching him nearly implode but than still have a manageable fantasy day, I’ve flipped, switched and reversed it this week. Winston will have a great matchup, even on the road, against a Jaguars squad that just got torched by Ryan Tannehill. With two superstar wide receivers to throw to, Jameis is continually a risky proposition with tremendous upside.

Start – Sam Darnold @ Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals have made the decision to move back to Andy Dalton and this could actually benefit Sam Darnold. With Ryan Finley under center, the Bengals weren’t much of a threat to put up points, forcing Darnold to match them. Dalton has that capability, so I’m really big on starting Darnold this week.

Start – Devlin Hodges vs Cleveland Browns: The Pittsburgh Steelers made it official; Duck Hodges is the new starting quarterback for the Steelers. Hodges came off the bench last week and immediately sparked the offense. The Browns have played better of late, but they’re still in the bottom half of allowing fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, so this is a good streaming spot for Hodges.

Start – Mitchell Trubisky @ Detroit Lions: It’s never going to feel good starting Mitchell Trubisky, but I think the Detroit Lions defense is soft enough that Mitchell could have a decent game against them. The Lions have been giving it up all year and just ate an ugly loss to the Washington Redskins, so Trubisky is a startable asset for fantasy football.

Start – Kirk Cousins @ Seattle Seahawks: After struggling to start the season, Kirk Cousins has been a house on fire in fantasy football for 6 of the past 7 weeks. In those 6 weeks, Cousins finished as a top 10 fantasy quarterback, including 3 games in which he delivered over 30 fantasy points. Even on the road, Kirk Cousins is an excellent start in what should be a high scoring affair in Seattle.

Sit of the Week: Carson Wentz @ Miami Dolphins

I know, I know. It’s the Miami Dolphins. However, I get the feeling that if you’re looking for a ceiling play, you should look elsewhere than Carson Wentz. This feels like a game in which the Eagles will rely on their run game and defense as all of their wide receivers are banged up. If you’re looking for a floor play, Wentz should be fine. However, if you need a week winner, I think Wentz will disappoint you.

Sit – Josh Allen @ Dallas Cowboys: Even though he’s played well as of late, I think this week is a good time to pivot off Josh Allen. Allen is generally not as good on the road and though he has a safe floor because of his legs, I doubt he reaches 30 this week. If you need a blow-up week from your quarterback spot, I don’t think Josh Allen is the QB to deliver.

Sit – Philip Rivers @ Denver Broncos: The Chargers are struggling and Philip Rivers is more the cause this year than in recent memory. Rivers has struggled with turnovers and the last time he played Denver this season, it was at home and it was his worst fantasy performance of the season, with 211 yards, no touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Avoid Rivers this week.

Sit – Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Philadelphia Eagles: Fitzmagic has actually been decent for fantasy football over this last stretch of games, but I wouldn’t take the risk against the Eagles. The Eagles were a good streaming option earlier this season, but the defense has played much better lately, so I wouldn’t risk Fitzmagic with so much potentially on the line this week for your fantasy leagues.

Sit – Jacoby Brissett vs Tennessee Titans: The Indianapolis Colts sudden proclivity for running the football, almost to their detriment, is hurting Jacoby Brissett’s fantasy value. The Titans are an above average defense that is making a push for the playoffs, which scares me out of wanting to run out Brissett this week.
