Week 7: Sit 'Em

We look at players owners usually consider starting but should think otherwise this week. Profiled players include Profiled players include Colin Kaepernick, Maurice Jones-Drew, C.J. Spiller, Stevan Ridley, and Miles Austin.

Banged up wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald faces off with the Seattle Seahwks this Thursday night. Fitzgerald was a gametime decision to play in week six, but ended up topping 100 receiving yards while also finding the endzone in a loss to the 49ers. The star receiver did tweak his hamstring during the loss, making it likely that he will not be at 100 percent heading into this weeks matchup. Fitzgerald faced the Seahawks twice last season, catching just five passes for 65 yards in total. These factors, added to Fitzgerald only having a couple days to recover before Thursday night, do not bode well for him putting in a good fantasy performance. Fantasy owners should be cautious starting the star wide receiver this week.

Charles Clay has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners this season, emerging as a borderline TE 1 in fantasy leagues. Clay has caught a touchdown in two consecutive games, but faces a Buffalo Bills defense that has allowed the second least amount of points to fantasy tight ends this season. It can be tough for fantasy owners who do not have a top flight tight end to make weekly decisions with borderline starting tight ends, so if you are in this position this week, I would leave Clay on your bench.
