Falcons Weekly Start-Or-Sit Previews And numberFire.com Fantasy Football Projections

Over the past decade, fantasy football fever has swept the nation. Everyone you know has at least one team, and you enjoy nothing better than to beat your friends, family and co-workers in a good old-fashioned fantasy matchup. Often times, the biggest decisions we face are who to start for a given week.

Many seasons are won and lost based on these choices. Should you start Michael Turner against the Steelers, or go with an unproven running back against a soft defense? For the most part, guys like Roddy White and Turner will always be in your lineup. However, decisions regarding other Falcons may not be so easy, especially if you're part of a deep league.

That's why we'll be detailing which Falcons you should start and which ones you should sit over the whole course of the season. Making that last-minute decision to start Julio Jones or Jason Snelling over another player can often be the difference between first and second place in fantasy football. To help with these decisions, SB Nation has joined forces with numberFire.com.

NumberFire.com is a fantasy football projection site that relies on algorithmic modeling an analysis that provides a mroe accurate prediction than either Yahoo! or ESPN's projections. In fact, last season their projections were 66% more accurate than either of Yahoo or ESPN.

With such a good track record, SB Nation Atlanta will be combining these projections with our own analysis of the Falcons that will no doubt help you with your fantasy team.
