Start ‘Em

Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks

Above we told you why you should bench Russell Wilson if you have a solid alternate at QB on your fantasy team. Marshawn Lynch will again be asked to carry the offensive load for the Seahawks with the Colts passing defense being one of the better groups in the NFL.

I expect BeastMode to have a huge game against the Colts with multiple touchdowns and over 100 yards rushing. Lynch has also been more active in the Hawks passing attack then ever before. Time to ride the momentum train for the next few weeks.

Sit ‘Em

Giovani Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis – Cincinnati Bengals

The New England Patriots defense has only given up one rushing TD on the season and the Bengals will be throwing the ball more than normal trying to keep up with this Tom Brady passing attack. Bernard and Green-Ellis should only be considered if your starting RB’s bye week forces you to start either.

Our starting WR might surprise you.
