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

4 of 4


Michael Floyd, STL (59%, 11) – Followed up his zero catch day in week 8 with a 4 catch, 36 yard bust in week 9. I’m really close to dropping Floyd but the smart move is probably to just bench him for another week. Carson Palmer is throwing a good deep ball lately and Floyd has shown in the past that he can be a dangerous deep threat. You may end up starting him again before the season is over, but not this week.

Michael Crabtree, @NO (57%, 11) – I was serious about releasing Crabtree in my Cut List article last week and I no longer own him in any leagues. If you are holding on to him based on name recognition, that is up to you, but I still wouldn’t start him this week. Week 9 was Crabtree’s best game since week 4 and he still only had 5 catches for 40 yards. His QB isn’t playing well, the Niners don’t pass much and Crabtree isn’t even the primary target when they do pass (Boldin).

Reuben Randle, @SEA (46%, 13) – It’s hard to believe since this is Randle’s third season on the Giants, but he is still having communication issues with Eli Manning. Randle was targeted 11 times last week but only caught 4 of them and he looked lost on about half of his routes. Until Randle dedicates himself to learning the offense, he’s never going to be consistent enough to unlock his considerable talent. Randle will have some big stat lines but not often enough to start him every week.

Marques Colston, SF (43%, 11) – It’s been a good run for the 7th rounder from Hofstra, but he looks slower than ever this year and has been a forgotten man in the Saints offense. Over the last 4 games Colston has averaged just 4 catches and hasn’t scored a TD since week 2.

Kendall Wright, @BAL (29%, 11) – Remember when Wright was one of my top breakout picks this year? Whoops. Wright’s best game this season is 6 catches for 68 yards. His average over the last 7 games is roughly 4 catches for 50 yards. If not for his 90 catches last year, Wright would be the waiver wire in most leagues.

Cecil Shorts III, DAL (18%, 11) – Has played 6 games and had under 45 yards in 5 of them. Cut him loose.


Larry Donnell, @SEA (57%, 9) – Has less than 25 receiving yards in 3 of the last 4 games. Eli likes throwing to the TE, but Donnell isn’t sneaking up on people anymore and doesn’t have the agility to shake athletic LBs and safeties. Donnell does have good size and is a red zone weapon, but is inconsistent and has been more miss than hit lately.

Vernon Davis, @NO (52%, 8) – Unless you are a Niners fan you may not know this, but over the last 5 games Davis is averaging just 2.3 catches for 23 yards and zero TDs. Those are Donte Rosario numbers.
