Are you a fantasy football addict? Titan Sized has compiled a team of three Tennessee Titans enthusiasts who all share unique opinions about fantasy football and what gamers should anticipate when they’re researching start’ems, sit’em, sleeper, waiver and PPR players. This project should last throughout the remainder of the 2013-14 NFL season.

Here’s a recap of the happenings from the previous week:

David Fleming
Start ‘em: Terrelle Pryor – DNP (Forewarned of this possibility. Flynn was awful and Pryor will come back strong.)
Joique Bell – 2 points (Bush was the man, so only start him if healthy moving forward.)
Sit ‘em: All Giants players – (Only Victor Cruz performed at all.)
Sleeper: Knowshon Moreno – 14 points (Another good day for the best back in Denver.)
Waiver Wire: Donnie Avery – 2 points (Not his best game, but saw 10 targets.)
PPR Player: Brian Hartline – 6 points (Dolphins couldn’t get anything going in MNF.)

Justin Graver
Start ‘em: Giovani Bernard – 6 points (Cleveland’s tough DEF held him in check.)
Sit ‘em: C.J. Spiller – 7 points (Had the carries, couldn’t find the end zone.)
Sleeper: Fred Jackson – 14 points (Similar carries to Spiller but got the TD.)
Waiver Wire: Bilal Powell – 10 points (PLENTY of touches coming his way.)
PPR Player: Danny Woodhead – 25 points (Easily the Chargers best back.)

Matt Ogaard
Start ‘em: Ben Roethlisberger – 15 points (Decent game, but offense still struggling.)
Sit ‘em: Giovani Bernard – 6 points
Sleeper: Kenny Britt – 0 points (Not a sleeper, just sleeping.)
Waiver Wire: Heath Miller – 7 points (Big Ben’s safety blanket.)
PPR Player: Matt Forte – 24 points (A true duel-threat for the Bears.)

    Need some help. I got 3 spots left 1rb 2wr and here are my options: RB-Sproles, Powell, Rashad Jennings. WR-Steve Smith, D. Moore, Nate Washington & Eddie Royal. Also was thinking about starting T Pryor over Cam Newton but not going to do that haha any help is appreciative

    • Justin Graver

      Based on match-up and opportunity, of that bunch I’d start Powell at RB. WR is really a toss up with those guys, but in my opinion the best bets for decent production are Steve Smith and Moore. If you’re going for upside over safety, I’d start Eddie Royal over Smith. Moore against the Chargers is the only one of the four that is a must start. For the other three, go with your gut. If you just want to root for Titans, Nate is an okay start, too.

        Thanks bro, the hard one was between Sproles and Powell. I feel like Powell wont have a big game but he will at least get 10points and Sproles went off last game and Bears have bad D against short passes but I also HAVE the Bears D lol Royal and Nate are so confusing at the moment…sometimes I ask myself why I play FF haha its always hard to predict
