Big Daddy's sit 'em / start 'em for fantasy football week 3

SIT 'EM

Eli Manning QB, Giants - Eli isn't playing well. 2 games, 2 TDs and 2 INTs to go along with 59% completion percentage.  Add to that the GMen's WR corps is a mess and I'd avoid him against the Eagles' corners.

Sam Bradford QB, Rams - St. Louis can't score in the red zone. They may not even be able to move the chains against the Ravens.  Sorry Sam, this is the 2nd week you are on my sit list.

Emanuel Sanders WR, Steelers - The Colts defense is terrible against the run, but the secondary is still actually decent.  Plus, Sanders only had 3 targets last week.  Look elsewhere.

Carolina running backs - Jacksonville is actually 4th against the run currently and the Panthers have been all about the pass.  The John Fox era is Charlotte is certainly dead.  

New England defense - Yes, I am telling you to sit the Pats D against…THE BUFFALO BILLS.  Yes, the Bills lead the NFL in scoring, and I think RBs Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller will abuse the Pats.  The scoreboard could very well explode in this game. 

START 'EM

Mark Ingram RB, Saints - He was on my sit list last week but I have a feeling this is going to be his breakout week. Ingram had two tough matchups against the Bears and Packers, but now gets a Houston team that had issues against Miami RB Daniel Thomas.  I see him finding the end zone for his 1st AND 2nd career scores. 

Daniel Thomas RB, Dolphins - He had a breakout game against the Texans and now even Fins fans are saying "REGGIE WHO?" Cleveland has struggled against the run versus two average teams and Thomas not Reggie is the workhorse in Miami.

Ben Tate RB, Texans - Sorry Saints fans, but until the New Orleans D proves me wrong, you're going to find the oppositions RB on my start list every week.  Hopefully if you drafted Arian Foster with your 1st rd draft pick, you snagged Tate as a handcuff.  He averaged a potent 4.7 yards per carry, racking the fifth-most yards after contact among qualifying rushers in the league. I expect him to be a top 10 fantasy performer this week.

Cam Newton QB, Panthers - Man o man was I wrong about this guy.  He has sure looked like a stud, not a dud. The Jaguars are 17th against the pass, and that's after playing Matt Hasselbeck and Mark Sanchez.  Newton could easily go for 400 yards again against the Jags weak secondary.

Jordy Nelson WR, Packers - The Bears are tough up the middle against the run and Green Bay loves to air it out anyway.  Nelson has a TD in consecutive weeks and has a great chance of making it a trifecta.
