Week 6 – Flex Play Rankings


Fred Jackson @ Giants – 

When things are going your way, they can really go your way as Fred Jackson’s career year, as the Bills head out to face a Giants defense that gave up three touchdowns to Beanie Wells week four and close to one hundred yards and a score to Marshawn Lynch, last week. If those running backs can torch this group, what will arguably the best fantasy back of 2011 to do them?

Jackson made the most of his opportunities against the Eagles last week, and I expect him to do the same in New York. The Giants just don’t seem to play well at home, and the Bills are sitting at four and one with victories over talented teams like the Eagles, Patriots and Raiders. There is a reason why Jackson has beaten two top fifteen draft picks in Marshawn Lynch and C.J. Spiller to remain the feature back in Buffalo and that is because, he’s a hard worker that plays the game the right way, across the board. Standing in at No.4 on our week six flex play rankings, Jackson will have another huge game, as the Bills should score over 30 one again.

LeGarrette Blount vs Saints –

After posting big numbers against the Colts, LeGarrette Blount ran into a brick wall in San Francisco. What really hurts Blount owners is that he suffered a knee injury in the third quarter and fail to return to the game. That could be because the Buccaneers were on the fast track to a 48 to 3 whooping, and it was smart to risk Blount hurting himself further.

Keep an eye on the situation this week as Blount should rebound with a productive game against a Saints defense that continues to underachieve for the talent they have on defense. Besides, the Buccaneers always seem to play the Saints tough, so I expect Blount to get plenty of work if he’s a full go this week.

Marques Colston @ Buccaneers –

The Saints top wide receiver Marques Colston is rounding back into shape as he failed to land on the injury report last week, and picked up five receptions for 69 yards vs the Panthers. Tampa Bay hasn’t played wide receivers well in recent weeks, and the 49ers probably would have done more damage through the air if it weren’t for getting out to a big lead.

Look for Colston to find the end zone this week as the Saints are still taking to the air more than the run, even against teams that suggest they should run the football first.

Hines Ward vs Jaguars –

The old man finally got it going against the Titans last week with seven receptions and two touchdowns. Ward was calling for the football through the media last week and Ben Roethlisberger made sure he was an active part of the passing game. While youngsters like Emanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown will overtake Ward in the future, look to Ward as the No.2 to receiver after Mike Wallace.

Both young wide outs have failed to take Ward’s job, and it’s time for the Steelers to go with the players who have produced over the years, to get back in the playoff chase. The Jaguars as still a weak pass defense, so Ward should take advantage with at least five receptions and a score.
