Welcome to the Week 6 Startability Index.  If you’re new, here’s how it works. The Index isn’t just about who to start and sit; fantasy is not that black and white. Here players are assigned a number from 1-10, which categorizes their fantasy value for the week. (10) is a must-start. (7) is a probable start, could have a big week, but not guaranteed a certain point threshold. (5) could go either way, but probably won’t be awesome or disastrous. (3) Very unlikely to put up good numbers. And so on. As always, please request any players not listed below…

Are we really nearing the quarter mark of the season already? Despite the league’s lost integrity in weeks one-three, if you love this sport the weeks are simply going to fly by.  The good news from a fantasy perspective is a little clarity has finally emerged.  The most starts are becoming more obvious, while the list of fringe fantasy players is becoming more robust. For our Week 4 Startability Index, I tried to focus largely on the fringe. And by fringe, I mean a guy like Christian Ponder who is coming off a breakout game, or a former fantasy darling…

Two weeks through the season and we have a boatload of fantasy disappointments (all in line behind CJNotOK). Many fantasy owners, myself included, are in a bit of a panic trying to figure out the short and long term value of many of the guys we loved so dearly on draft night.  Unless you really believe in the power of throwing darts, I can’t provide you any long-term comfort at this point other than RG3 is the real deal. But here is some assistance with your starting lineup decisions for Week 3.  As always the Startability Index gives a guy…

All I can say is thank goodness I’m Jewish and get to atone for my Week 1 sins in two weeks.  (RG3 will be an intricate part of my internal cleansing.)  With a new week brings a new crop of fantasy hopes and dreams – well, maybe except for Jay Cutler owners at this point. Below is my Week 2 Startability Index. A quick reminder on how it works. I pick a bunch of guys, either by request or that I think could be conundrums. They are assigned a number from 1-10. 10 means they are a must-start. 7 means…

In fantasy football, just as in life, there are the “haves” and “have-nots.” The haves avoided the hype of  Cam Newton and Chris Johnson on draft day. They always pick up the right wide receiver on waivers. And somehow they get in their five mile runs on Sundays with enough time to spare for showering, relaxing, triple-checking their lineups and even concocting a seven-layer Mexican dip – all before kickoff. The have-nots are already in fantasy panic mode. Their rosters are as thin as the walls at the Sleep Inn on New York Avenue in Washington D.C.  Sunday morning are…
