Week 12: Sit 'Em

We look at players owners usually consider starting but should think otherwise this week. Profiled players include Profiled players include Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Montee Ball, Andre Ellington, and Tavon Austin.


Coming off his biggest game of the season, I would recommend sitting Michael Floyd on fantasy benches. The second year wide receiver caught six passes for 193 yards and a touchdown in week 11, giving owners hope that he will finally turn the corner and become a reliable fantasy starter. I would not depend on Floyd this week as he had only amassed 61 total receiving yards in the previous two games combined, and is a high risk, high reward play as a WR 3 this week. Unless you have a wide receiver injured or on a bye week, I would keep Floyd on your bench.


Cecil Shorts is in the midst of a major slump, leaving fantasy owners wondering if he will be able to rebound this season. Shorts has caught just four passes over the previous two games, and voiced his displeasure with the Jaguars' offense after the week 11 loss. The third year wide receiver should be able to bounce back to fantasy relevance eventually, but I would not expect it to happen this week. The Jaguars take on the number one passing defense in the league this week in Houston, making it a good idea to leave Shorts on fantasy benches.
