This is our first edition of “NFL Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em” and we plan on making it a weekly column.
Fantasy football gives us all an opportunity to be somewhat of an NFL general manager. Here are this weeks picks on who you should start, and who you should bench on your fantasy squad.

Andrew Luck – Colts
The Colts face the Jaguars this week and even though the game is in Florida, Luck and company should have a huge game against the worst team in the NFL. The only negative to this matchup is that the running game will also be able to inflate their fantasy points. The Jags allow 21 points to opposing QB’s and it’s safe to assume Luck will at the very least reach that total.
Matt Schaub – Texans
Where Luck is facing a horrible defense, Schaub has to look forward to the Seahawks #1 NFL defense. So far this season the Legion of Boom has allowed the fewest points per game and have the fewest passing yards against as well. The Texans will have Andre Johnson but with cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, Schaub is a definite sit this week.
Which running back get’s benched this week?
