Fantasy Football Week 10: Start’em / Sit’em

Cam Newton, @PHI (62%, 18) – Has still only had 1 good game all season. If your trading deadline hasn’t come yet, do whatever you can to ditch Newton while people still think he’s good. It’s not all Newton’s fault; his o-line sucks, his running backs are mediocre and he has very few receiving weapons but at the end of the day Cam is the 17th ranked fantasy QB.
Colin Kaepernick, @NO (49%, 19) – He’s been sacked 14 times the last two weeks, so clearly the Niners O-line is struggling. More importantly, I just don’t think Kaepernick is that good.
Eli Manning, @SEA (22%, 16) – He played OK against the Colts (359, 2 TDs), but playing at Seattle is possibly the toughest situation for any QB and Eli hasn’t played well enough this season for me to trust him there.
Michael Vick, PIT (16%, 18) – Looked surprisingly decent in KC last week, but not good enough for me to roll the dice with Vick in my starting lineup.

Joique Bell, MIA (43%, 11) – The Dolphins D-line has been playing really well lately, Reggie Bush is back this week, and I don’t think there is going to be enough room between the tackles for Bell to have a big fantasy day.
Steven Jackson, @TB (40%,11) – Still really slooooow. The Bucs run defense is really bad, but so is Jackson.
Darren McFadden, DEN (38%, 10) – The Broncos defense is giving up the 7th fewest points to fantasy RBs and McFadden is one of the worst RBs they faced this year. I could see McFadden getting some garbage time catches, but I’m not going to risk a starting lineup spot on it.
Andre Williams, @SEA (31%, 10) – Has only averaged 3.4 yards per carry in 4 starts since Rashad Jennings went down and this is his toughest match-up so far. No thanks.
Boobie Dixon, KC (19%,13) – Only averaged 2 yards per carry on 22 touches last week and is facing KC 3rd ranked run defense this week.
