Here’s some sit and start advice as you set your lineups for Week 13 of the NFL season.
.
Quarterbacks
.
Start:
Sam Bradford, St. Louis Rams
Don’t look now, but the talented rookie has a 17-9 TD to INT ratio. It’s 10-1 in his past five games. He has the fortune of playing Arizona, who ranks 25th with 262.3 passing yards allowed per game. He struggled with three interceptions in his pro debut against the Cardinals, but that seems like an eternity ago.
.

Sit:
Jon Kitna, Dallas Cowboys
Now that they lost under Jason Garrett, I wouldn’t be surprised if they returned to their losing ways. The Colts rank 7th with just 217.4 passing yards allowed per game and are tied for 6th with 13 passing touchdowns allowed.
.

Running Backs
.
Start:
Mike Tolbert, San Diego Chargers

Tolbert just keeps churning out big games, and his date with Oakland’s 28th ranked run defense (133.7 rushing yards allowed per game) is enticing. Ryan Mathews has become an afterthought.
.
Felix Jones, Dallas Cowboys
Jones hasn’t been explosive, but he has had at least 86 total yards in his past three games. He is a nice play against Indianapolis’ 29th ranked run defense (136 ypg). I’m not expecting him to get the goal line carries in Marion Barber’s absence, as Tashard Choice will likely get those looks, but there should be enough yardage to make him a decent RB2. Plus, he’s always a threat to break a long one.
.

Sit:
LeGarrette Blount, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Blount managed just 55 yards against Baltimore’s 11th ranked run defense (101.7 ypg). This week he has the tall order of facing Atlanta’s 6th ranked run defense (93.7 ypg). They are tied for an NFL-low four rushing touchdowns.
.
Ronnie Brown, Miami Dolphins
The Browns, Ronnie’s opponent this week, have also allowed just four rushing touchdowns. He ran for 85 yards last week against the Raiders, but is still sharing with Ricky Williams nearly 50-50. That won’t be enough against Cleveland. continue reading »
