We had a good week last week on Sit ’em Down (or bad depending on your point of view), going 2-1 to push us to 44-50 on the season. Now with the playoffs starting this week its time to look at those who are set to disappoint with so much on the line, and don’t forget to check out our playoff edition of Start ’em Up if you haven’t already:

-QB- Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Atlanta Falcons (Fanduel Price- $7900, DraftKings Price- $6100)

Bortles has been on fire the last two weeks with eight passing touchdowns and over 500 yards, and while Atlanta’s season has been in a tailspin, the fact is they are still allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season, and have allowed only two games of over 300 passing yards this year. Do not trust this match up for the otherwise impressive Bortles.

-RB- Matt Forte, Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings (FD- $7900, DK- $6500)

Forte’s been good the last two weeks now that he’s healthy, with 129 rushing yards and two scores, this is a bad match up against a strong Vikings’ defense that has only given up one rushing touchdown over the last five weeks, and one that held Forte to 69 all-purpose yards on 14 touches earlier this season. Don’t depend on him this week.

-WR- Allen Robinson, Jacksonville vs. Atlanta (FD- $8100, DK- $7600)

Robinson fell back to earth last week as he snapped his streak of nine consecutive double-digit fantasy point performances with a one catch-four yard-one touchdown game, and unfortunately he’ll have another dud this week. Despite being torched by Ted Ginn Jr. last week the Falcons still give up the second fewest fantasy points to receivers this year, and that was their only 100-yard receiving game allowed since week four. Robinson and the Jaguars have a bright future, you just won’t see that this week.
