Week 3: Start 'Em or Sit 'Em?

As most of you probably know, I am one of the biggest fantasy football junkies you will ever meet. All week, I've been debating whether I should start or sit certain players. Also, I've been receiving questions over Twitter. the time has come where I decide what you should do those players.

DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans - @BAL

After a breakout week in the Texans overtime win over Tennessee last week, he's been getting picked up like a dollar lying on the sidewalk. Should you FLEX him this week?

START HIM! I think Hopkins could have another touchdown this week, and possibly 100+ yards. The Ravens defense has not been shutting down the passing game too great thus far, and now playing 2-0 Houston will be the same case.

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks - v. JAX

There is always a few scenarios with Wilson. One is he is your starter along with a solid backup, or he's your solid backup because you drafted two quarterbacks in the first seven rounds.

Either way, he deserves the start this week. Do you expect him not to throw a dagger this week against one of the worst defenses in the league? Absolutely a start.

Jordan Cameron, TE, Cleveland Browns - @MIN

The Browns offense is the weirdest in football right now. They traded former running back Trent Richardson to the Colts this week, and quarterback Brandon Weeden is out this week against the Vikings. With third-string Brian Hoyer getting the start, how will the passing game work?

This week I'm giving Cameron the rare sit 'em card due to Hoyer being the starting quarterback. Although I believe Cameron is going to be one of the best at his position, he gets a spot on your bench this week.

Trent Richardson, RB, Indianapolis Colts - @SF

Let's make this short and sweet. He won't be able to get long runs. He doesn't know the playbook. He's the red zone guy, so he might get in the end zone once. Sit him this week.
