Every week, Mike Mital is responsible for telling fantasy football owners around the world who to sit and who to start. This is not your grandpa’s ordinary, boring start em sit em list–this is bold! You’ve been warned…

Week 3 Start em

Ryan Tannehill – Mia QB

Despite the loss to the Patriots on the road in Week 2, Tannehill showed that he can put up big numbers in OC Adam Gase’s high-octane attack. Tannehill faces a Browns team that is in disarray, and one that has allowed 286 passing yards per game. With the emergence of DaVante Parker and the hot start of Jarvis Landry, the Dolphins air attack will be alive and well in South Beach.

Week 3 Sit em

Demaryius Thomas – Den WR

Thomas is coming off a respectable game in Week 2 where he caught 5 passes for 90 yards against the Colts. Despite that production, Thomas is dealing with a nagging hip injury and I am still not sold on the arm of Trevor Siemian, which could lead to a conservative ground game attack against the Bengals. The Bengals secondary also was able to hold Antonio Brown in check last week, which does not bode well for Thomas.
