Fantasy Football Start and Sit: Week 14 

With a new coach in Denver, expect more Knowshon.

For some of you fantasy footballers out there, week 14 marks the first week of your playoff season. For the rest of you, this is likely the last week of your regular season, and you’re scrambling to qualify. 

Last week wound up being an unpredictable one for fantasy, as studs like Dwayne Bowe, Peyton Hillis and Peyton Manning were held in check, while guys like Tashard Choice, Marshawn Lynch and James Starks impressed.

In terms of judging last week’s start/sit selections, LeSean McCoy did some damage against the Houston Texans, scoring two touchdowns while racking up over 120 total yards.

Matt Cassel was a disappointment against the Broncos, throwing for just 196 yards with a touchdown in the 10-6 win.

Total for the week: 4/8


QB Joe Flacco, BAL at HOU

Flacco has been putting up consistently decent fantasy numbers throughout the season, but now faces a dream matchup with the Houston Texans and there abomination of a pass defense. Considering the only QB to struggle against Houston was rookie sixth-round pick Rusty Smith of the Titans, I like Flacco’s chances to succeed.

Projected stats: 24/36, 305 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT, 3 rushes, 12 yards

RB Knowshon Moreno, DEN at ARZ

With a new coach now in charge (the former running backs coach, no less) I’d expect Moreno to see more rushing attempts out of the backfield. With a dream matchup against the shaky Cardinals defense, he should perform well. He did run for 161 yards last week against a solid Chiefs defense.

Projected stats: 25 carries, 145 yards, 1 TD, 4 catches, 33 yards, 1 TD

WR Marques Colston, NO vs. STL

The Rams have been shaky against the pass, and with Colston having scored five TDs on the season, all since week seven, he’s become a weekly must-start. A big game could be in store this week.

Projected stats: 8 catches, 110 yards, 1 TD

TE Chris Cooley, WAS vs. TB

Despite a much-improved defense, the Bucs will be missing Aqib Talib for the rest of the season, which makes an solid pass defense more vulnerable in that department. With the Redskins constantly playing from behind, expect them to throw and throw some more.

Projected stats: 6 catches, 71 yards, 1 TD


QB Matt Schaub, HOU vs. BAL

The Ravens defense w0n’t be happy after dropping a heart-breaker to the Steelers, and, if the Texans are without Andre Johnson, Schaub won’t have much help. Don’t expect his finest showing.

Projected stats: 17/30, 186 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT

RB LaDainian Tomlinson, NYJ vs. MIA

Tomlinson has slowed down significantly since earlier in the season, and he’s been gradually losing carries to the younger Shonn Greene. The Dolphins have enjoyed great success against opposing running backs this season, so I’m wary of starting LT.

Projected stats: 13 carries, 40 yards

WR Larry Fitzgerald, ARZ vs. DEN

Dwayne Bowe was completely shut-out by Champ Bailey and the Broncos last week, and with the mess that is the Cardinals’ QB situation, I’d expect more of the same.

Projected stats: 3 catches, 42 yards

TE Zach Miller, OAK at JAX

Miller has been severely limited due to plantar fasciitis, and has just four catches in his last three games. He hasn’t topped 10 yards receiving since week seven.

Projected stats: 2 catches, 11 yards

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Thanks for the post. My spouse and i have generally noticed that almost all people are desirous to lose weight when they wish to show up slim as well as attractive. However, they do not often realize that there are other benefits just for losing weight as well. Doctors claim that obese people are afflicted by a variety of diseases that can be instantly attributed to their own excess weight. Thankfully that people who sadly are overweight and suffering from different diseases can reduce the severity of their particular illnesses through losing weight. It’s possible to see a continuous but noted improvement in health whenever even a slight amount of fat loss is attained.
