Ahhh, that was fun! Are you feeling more confident about your lineups now?

The easiest advice to give for this weekend is to avoid starting any Colts players and load up on the Titans this week. The Rams also have a good situation, as the Colts defense is just horrendous.

While some might find it an easy strategy to play anyone facing the Jets, the Bills aren’t a great team either. Tyrod Taylor is worth a start, simply because of who he’s up against, but I wouldn’t go crazy on Bills players. The defense could be a decent starting option as well.

We have an interesting situation this week as well, as the Dolphins and Buccaneers aren’t playing due to Hurricane Irma. The game has been pushed to week 11 of the regular season.

Hopefully if you had a key member of the Dolphins or Buccaneers on your team, you have a suitable replacement for them. Jameis Winston was likely a solid option to start for a lot of owners and now they’ll be throwing in Alex Smith or Carson Palmer (premiere backups in fantasy football this year).

I hope these start/sits helped you out for the first week and we’ll check back this time next week to see how well I did!
