Victory in a Land Called Fantasy: Who to Start, Who to Sit


2018 is not a good year for starting 49er players in your fantasy league. It started great, and had a lot of promise, but that narrative faded quickly.

But, there are still some players I would play this week, and a few I would avoid like the plague.

C.J. Beathard

I would not start C.J. Beathard. He is putting up some good numbers, but even though a few of his interceptions are not his fault, they still count against him. Plus, he takes chances and holds the ball too long, he could get himself knocked out of the game. There are better quarterbacks out there, do not start or even roster Beathard. SIT: C.J. Beathard

The Wide Receivers

Unless you’re in a really deep league, you cannot trust the wide receivers for the 49ers. If they at least had one guy that you knew was going to be the number one target it may be a different story, but that is not the case and you cannot trust any of them. SIT: Everyone

George Kittle

George Kittle is the only target you can trust week after week. I even tweeted out that Kittle will be better than Gronk.

Time will tell if I was foolish or not but Kittle is a guy you can trust in fantasy and is a guy that should always be in your lineup. START: George Kittle

The Running Backs

Week after week I said start Matt Breida, start Matt Breida. And for the most part it has worked out and you were happy with him. This Monday against the Packers, do not start Matt Breida. We are not even sure if he is going to play and you do not want to get stuck with him in your line up and gets ruled out. And for the past three weeks he has been knocked out for some portion of the game. I wouldn’t trust him. I would start Alfred Morris; he will be the beneficiary of a Breida absence from the lineup.

I do have a surprise start in Monday’s night game. If you are a Matt Breida owner, or you are desperate for a running back and you’re in a PPR league, I think you can start Kyle Juszczyk. I am in a PPR league, I am the Breida owner, and I am desperate for a running back, I picked up Juszczyk and he is in my lineup. START: Alfred Morris and Kyle Juszczyk, if Breida misses, SIT: Matt Breida
