Who to Sit:

WR Emmanuel Sanders (DEN) – This will mark the first time in 2014 that I have had Sanders sitting out of my starting line up come Sunday and the reason is oh, so simple.

Richard Sherman.

Sherman has allowed only 54 yards to opposing receivers through two games, and the Pro Bowl defensive back will garner most, if not all of his attention in the direction of Sanders in this Super Bowl rematch.

WR Antonio Brown (PIT) – First off, if you didn’t know this — the Carolina Panthers defense is legit. So far in 2014 they have allowed only 119 total yards to Vincent Jackson and Calvin Johnson. That doesn’t bode well for Brown this week as the Pittsburgh Steelers face the Panthers and their stingy defense.

With that in mind, you’ll likely keep Brown in play, but don’t say we didn’t tell you so.

WR Torrey Smith (BAL) – 2014 has been rough for Torrey Smith. He has managed only six fantasy points through two games, largely because of the addition of Steve Smith in the off-season.

To make matter worse, he faces Joe Haden this week. The same Joe Haden that held Marques Colston to zero points in week 2.
