Week 9 Start/Sit – TNF edition

The NFC South lead is on the line in what should be a very exciting and fantasy-friendly ballgame. Carolina comes into this one having lost a tough matchup at home in the last minute to Seattle, while New Orleans is looking to build off of their blowout of a Green Bay team that blew Carolina out two short weeks ago. In a game where defense is optional, look for big production totals from all familiar fantasy parties.


Saints @ Panthers

Start:
Mark Ingram, RB
He’s ALMOST my start of the week. At this point, I’m not sure who else qualifies, but Ingram should have a field day against a Carolina unit that specializes in missed tackles/assignments.
Brandin Cooks, WR
There are many options to choose from here, but I think Cooks’ playing style matches up beautifully in his favor against this awful secondary. Carolina will be chasing him around all game long. Unsuccessfully.

Sit:
Ha.

Start:
Cam Newton, QB
Cam is finished with the worst part of his schedule and should finally start returning some of that early round value you were expecting when Andrew Luck got drafted and you had to settle for him you drafted him a few short months ago. He probably got you in a hole (like he did for me), but the good news is, he’s perfectly capable of digging you (us) back out of it.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR
This kid is just so impressive. He’s a perfect fit in this offense, and even allegedly flubbed his 40 time several months ago so he’d end up in Charlotte. I think his success continues here, even against Saints DB Keenan Lewis (who shut down Jordy Nelson last weekend). Cam will look his way early and often, and you and I will both benefit from having placed him in our lineups once again.

Sit:
Jonathan Stewart, RB
Stewie looked phenomenal last week and I’m happy for him. It was a “tough” Seattle defense and he pretty much had his way with it. The Saints obviously do not pose nearly the threat that Seattle does (kinda), but this is more about De’Angelo Williams coming back and taking over his starting role. Stewart may potentially get a goal line carry or two, but I just can’t trust him with D-Lo returning.


 

As usual, it’s short and sweet for Thursday Night Football. Here’s hoping for a good game between two hated rivals.
Also, go Panthers.
