Week ten is almost here! There are still a ton of fantasy teams who still aren’t sure of who to start, and who to leave on their bench.

By: Ryan Hawks (@RyanWorldEater)

We’re into the double-digit weeks! With the fantasy football playoffs starting in a month for most teams, we’re getting into the home stretch. Most teams already have their squad together, but many still go through questions on who to start each week. Well, here at World Eater, we really care about each person’s team, and take pride in giving only the best advice on who to start. Read on to see who will eat this week, and who will bunk out there in the world.

There is still time to set lineups! Still not sure who to start because Gronk is on bye? Is your tight end just not performing and you’re thinking of just streaming someone? World Eater Fantasy Football is here with some late night advice on who to start, and who to sit at tight end.

World Eater Week Nine Starts and Sits - Tight Ends


Start


Jared Cook at Miami Dolphins


The Oakland Raiders offense has been really hard to trust this season. They came out strong weeks one and two, but then, aside from their wild Thursday Night game, they’ve been floundering all season. With another primetime game against the Miami Dolphins, they should come back to life, if only for another week.

Jared Cook has been a big part of their offense all season. Add that to the fact that the Dolphins have been pretty horrible against tight ends this year, and teams have a great option at a streaming candidate this week....

After a one-week hiatus, World Eater Fantasy Football is back with start/sit advice for fantasy squads everywhere. Injuries continue to mount across the league, and last minute trades have undoubtedly shaken up some team’s lineup decisions. In our first installment, we’ll focus on quarterbacks and wide receivers. Read on, and take these words as the law!

World Eater Week Nine Starts and Sits – Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers


Quarterbacks


Start


Drew Brees at Tampa Bay Buccaneers


The New Orleans Saints have been a completely different team from what we are used to the past few weeks. We haven’t seen Drew Brees have to throw for 300 yards and score every time he has the ball. The defense has been playing surprisingly well, and their run game is rolling.

While that is a good thing for the Saints overall, it isn’t as nice for fantasy teams with Brees on their roster. In two of the <a...


Quarter Season Review - Running Backs

By: Ryan Hawks (@RyanWorldEater)
Running backs are like gold in fantasy football. Having a good stable of running backs can make or break a fantasy team’s season. There are so few of them, and they seem to be the most often injured, likely because they take more of a beating than any other position in football. Their short shelf-life, and the league’s overall movement towards emphasizing passing and big plays started to see running backs devalued. Then, a flush of fresh blood into the position put them right back to the top of fantasy drafts.

Anyone catch that game Thursday night? What a wild contest from start to finish! It was only the first, of hopefully many, high octane matchups this weekend. Read on to find out which wide receivers and tight ends will eat up points this week, and which ones will be in a world of pain with garbage stat lines.

Start


Devante Adams vs New Orleans Saints


There is legitimate fear about Green Bay Packers wide receiver Devante Adams value moving forward now that Aaron Rodgers is done for the year. It definitely hurts his ceiling, and lowers his floor, but Adams is a legitimate talent, and will still have his games.

This week should be one of them. The New Orleans Saints defense put out a surprising performance last week, torturing Detroit Lions signal caller ...

Another week of football, another week of decisions on who teams think will eat in their lineup, and who will just bunk out on the bench. At the halfway point of the fantasy season, it becomes even more important to start the right guys. Here’s some good and bad matchups for running backs and quarterbacks this week.

It’s not too late to set lineups for tomorrow morning’s games. There are plenty of matchups to exploit, and plenty to stay away from. Here is part two of World Eater’s start and sits, featuring running backs and tight ends.

World Eater Week Six Starts and Sits Part 2


Running Backs


Start


Marshawn Lynch vs Los Angeles Chargers


The Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers game has gotten a lot of attention this week for our starts and sits. Marshawn Lynch is one that has to be given some attention this week, because his hasn’t really lived up to some people’s beastly expectations.

While he may not be an every week starter, and will largely be touchdown dependent, this is a week where he is a must start. The Los Angeles Chargers run defense has been basically nonexistent this season. Running backs are averaging the sixth most fantasy points this season against the Bolts, and their run defense is ranked last in the league.

In addition to that, quarterback Derek Carr is coming back from missing a game with a back fracture, and the coaches likely want to keep him out of the way...

World Eater's Week Six Starts and Sits

Welcome to the first ever World Eater Fantasy Football Start/Sit List. We’ve sifted through the matchups for this week to carefully choose two matchups where players are likely to ball out, and two matchups where they’re likely to bunk out. Let’s start things off with quarterbacks and wide receivers. Stay tuned later for the running backs and tight ends

Starts


Alex Smith vs. Pittsburgh Steelers


Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the biggest surprises this season. Smith has gone from game manager, to game changer, making big throws all season to his plethora or offensive weapons.

On paper this looks like a week where Smith’s numbers could fall. The Steeler’s defense has been solid this season against quarterbacks, allowing an average quarterback rating of only 68.5. They’ve also given up the second fewest points to signal callers in fantasy.

Still, the Steelers haven’t exactly been playing against quality quarterbacks. This season they’ve only had to face...


Quarter Season Review - Tight Ends

Continuing in the same vein of quarter season reviews, we’ll now highlight our next skill position group: tight ends. Outside of top dogs like Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce, this is probably the toughest skill position group to predict and draft for. Now that we are five weeks into the season though, trends in who is the most involved in the offense are appearing, and we can begin to forecast on who will be able to sustain their production.

Quarter Season in Review – Wide Receivers

By: Ryan Hawks (@RyanWorldEater)

We are a quarter of the way into the NFL season. So far, the wide receiver leader boards look… well weird. Many big names like Odell Beckham Jr. and Julio Jones have gotten off to slow starts due to injuries. Of course Antonio Brown has been his usual model of consistency, but there are many unexpected names in the top five.

Here are the the top five in terms of receiving yards, standard, and PPR scoring:

NFL Receiving Yard Leaders
1. Stefon Diggs (Min) 391
2. Antonio Brown (Pit) 388
3. Brandin Cooks (NE) 379
4. Adam Thielen (Min) 358
5. Keenan Allen (LAC) 334

Standard Scoring Leaders

1. Stefon Diggs (Min) 62.9
2. Chris Hogan (NE) 60.5
3. Brandin Cooks (NE) 52.9
4. Jordy Nelson (GB) 50.6
5. Antonio Brown (Pit) 44.8

PPR Scoring Leaders

1. Stefon Diggs (Min) 84.9
2. Antonio Brown (Pit) 74.8
3. DeAndre Hopkin (Hou) 74.1
4. A.J. Green (Cin) 68.5
5. Michael Thomas (NO) 68
