It’s amazing how fast the fantasy football season goes as we are already close to half way done with the season after week six.

As long as your team has won a couple of games so far you still have a great chance to make the playoffs and productive starters are what you need to continue winning head to head matchups.



Eli Manning @ Lions: Last week Eli Manning and the Giants passing game got back on track as Manning went for almost 300 yards passing and three touchdowns. This week the Giants will square off against the Lions and Manning will get his second straight game against a weak secondary.


Most regular starting fantasy quarterbacks have decent matchups this week. One quarterback to consider benching is Matt Schaub as he’s played poorly for fantasy four of the first five weeks this season.

Running Backs


Felix Jones @ Vikings: The Cowboys were worked by the Vikings the last time both met Dallas was worked in the playoffs. Felix Jones didn’t have a big game but this week the Cowboys are desperate for a win and reports out of Dallas are that Jones will see more work this week.

Last week Jones posted over 100 yards rushing so he should have opportunities to be a strong flex play option this week.


Ronnie Brown @ Packers: The Packers have been strong against the run once again this season and Ronnie Brown doesn’t stand to have a strong game facing them. With Ricky Williams taking touches away from Brown, he shouldn’t have much production for week six.

Wide Receivers


Percy Harvin vs Cowboys: The Randy Moss effect didn’t take long to help Percy Harvin as he posted two touchdowns against the Jets. Defenses must respect Moss down the field and that will continue to open things up for Harvin.

Look to Harvin as a safe every week fantasy play from this point on.


Johnny Knox vs Seahawks: The Bears passing game is non existent until Jay Cutler proves he can return to his early season form. Chicago hasn’t ruled out the possibility of holding Cutler out this week, and if he’s off the field this team may throw for under 100 yards passing once again.

    Wow, your just terrible. Everything from your power rankings to your start em’ sit em’s. First of all, while Felix Jones is a great running back, the Vikings are known for their great run defense. Last week ended their long streak of holding opposing rushing offences to less than 150 yds, but you have to remember that it took a fantastic Jets running game to do it. I say Felix Jones has 14 carries for 42 yards and no touchdowns. I also don’t think Percy Harvin is going to have a good enough day to start him over other recievers. The Cowboys have an excellent defense and Randy Moss is going to have a full week of practice with Brett Favre. I believe that Randy Moss is going to be thrown to a lot, reducing the action that Percy Harvin is going to get. I predict Percy Harvin to have 3 catches for 34 yards. Now, I think its ridiculous to sit Johnny Knox against the horrible pass defense of the Seahawks and your reason is ridiculous too. Jay Cutler was playing fine even when the o-line wasn’t blocking for him. I just think its impossible to have a big day when you are sacked 9 times in one half. Last week, the adjustments made to the o-line worked and they actually gave Todd Collins time to throw the ball. Todd Collins just sucks so bad the he fails to throw an accurate pass even with time. Jay Cutler has the ability to take advantage of the time given to him by the o-line and he will pick apart that horrible Seahawks pass defense. Jay Cutler is going to throw for over 300 yards and, considering the fact that Knox leads all Bears recievers in recieving yards, Knox will get at least 100 of those yards.

    Thanks for the feedback Ron.

    I always welcome criticism just as long as someone is willing to tell me why they think I’m wrong. We disagree on these players but I see your points and they are good arguments.

    Best of luck this week,
