Reed’s Fantasy Football Corner
Welcome to “Reed’s Fantasy Football Corner!” I will be giving you my thoughts on the matchups that I like for fantasy football. I will give my “Starts” and “Sits” of the week for each position. Each will be based on projections and opponents that each player will face that week. Most of my observations will most likely be players you might be on the edge with starting.
Start: Baker Mayfield (at DAL) The Dallas Cowboy defense has been getting lit up all year against opposing quarterbacks. I expect Mayfield to break out of his slump and getting it going against a weak cowboy secondary.
Sit: Carson Wentz (at SF) Wentz has really struggled to begin the year. Going up against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night seems to be another bad matchup for Wentz. Look to find another option here.
Start: Darrell Henderson Jr. (vs NYG) Henderson Jr. is slated to get a majority of the snaps for the Rams Sunday. Going up against a weak Giants rush defense could lead to a big day for Henderson and the Rams.
Sit: Mark Ingram (at WAS) Ingram struggled Monday night to get going against the Chiefs defense. The Ravens have been splitting snaps between three running backs to start the year so it is extremely hit or miss.
Start: Marquez Valdes- Scantling (vs ATL) Packers wide receivers Devante Adams and Allen Lazard are both looking like they might not be available on Monday night. This could lead to MVS getting a large amount of targets.
Sit: T.Y. Hilton (vs CHI) Hilton has been a bust so far this year. Rivers and Hilton seem to not have been able to find a connection so far. I expect other Colts weapons to have a big day but not Hilton.
Start: Austin Hooper (at DAL) Hooper has major breakout potential against the Cowboys secondary. If Mayfield can get it going through the air expect Hooper to have a big day.
Sit: Jimmy Graham (at IND) Graham has a tough matchup against an elite set of linebackers on Sunday afternoon when the Bears play the Colts. Graham could find a hard time getting the ball if he cannot break free from the Colts linebackers.
