What's the tiebreaker on "auto-starts"

The footballers constantly talk about players being “auto-start.” My problem is what are they considering the tiebreaker. For example I have Diggs, Hopkins, Benjamin, and Amendola who’ve all been listed as “autostarts”. My debate this week is Benjamin or Amendola (diggs is hurt, hopkins is ranked in the top 5). Do you just use overall ranking as tiebreaker, trends last 2 weeks, or season average on points. They never really discuss it.

what determines the tiebreaker comes down to the type of fantasy player you are.

If you want safe you’d go someone like amendola who’ll get steady short/intermediate targets. If you want big potential then you have benjamin who is a big red zone target.

Hope this helps.
