Week 6 Start’em Sit’em
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.
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.
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.
