Week 6 Start or Sit Advice – Who You Should Start in Your Fantasy Lineup
Injuries have are still piling up, especially at running back, and some of us are missing our studs this week with Jamaal Charles (wasn’t he just out?? ) and Jimmy Graham on a bye and now Megatron, Monte Ball, Rashad Jennngs and A.J. Green are out as well with injuries. Hopefully your Fantasy teams were able to avoid any injuries and we add guys like Andre Williams or Branden Oliveroff the waiver wire to our lineups for some bye week depth. We got a Tom Brady bounce back last week against Cincinnati, Peyton Manning lit up the Cardinals and Mike Glennon did his best Drew Brees impression for Drew Brees getting into a shootout with the Saints. Lets take a look at some less obvious or questionable start or sit calls for this week.
Quarterbacks to Start in Week 6
Eli Manning (vs PHI) Manning looked hot again in Week 5 against Atlanta with 20 Fantasy points in a standard league Now he faces the Eagles, whos defense has allowed opposing quarterbacks to throw multiple touchdowns. The Eagles Defense has been opportunistic, but Manning had success against last year when he scored 19 Fantasy points in their first game in Week 5. Russell Wilson (vs. DAL) Wilson has been putting up elite Fantasy numbers this season. He’s scored at least 21 Fantasy points in all four games, with his season-high 38 points coming in Week 5 against Washington. The Cowboys have allowed multiple touchdowns to three of five quarterbacks this season, so this should provide Wilson with a great matchup, especially playing at home in Seattle. Jay Cutler (vs ATL) Cutler hasn’t looked good the last two weeks with four, but surprisingly his Fantasy production hasn’t suffered. He still has been putting up at least 20 points in every game this season. The Falcons have allowed at least 20 Fantasy points to each of their past two opponents Cutler is a must-start Fantasy quarterback and even makes a great Weekly Fantasy League option this week with his low cap number.. Philip Rivers (vs OAK) Hes playing the Jags, but my only concern with Rivers this week is the chance the Chargers commit to the running game against Raiders defense. The good thing is River had a lot of short throws that went for big yardage to his new lead running back Oliver.
Quarterbacks to Sit in Week 6
Cam Newton (at CIN) Before Brady tore them up last week, the Bengals had yet to allow multiple passing touchdowns in their first three games Im expecting a bounce back game at home from them this week making Newton a must Sit this week.
Running Backs to Start in Week 6
Andre Williams (vs PHI) Williams will start this week for the injured Jennings, and the Eagles have been generous to opposing running backs, with four reaching double digits in Fantasy points. Branden Oliver (vs OAK) Oliver took over for Donald Brown when he left the game with a concussion in their Week 5 against the Jets. Oliver had 19 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown and four catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. He became the first running back to score against the Jets and reach double digits in Fantasy points. With Brown most likely out in Week 6 against the Raiders, Oliver a featured role against the Raiders, who have allowed five touchdowns to opposing running backs and four to reach double digits in Fantasy points.
Running Backs to Sit Week 6
Zac Stacy (vs SF) Doug Martin (vs BAL)
Wide Receivers to Start in Week 6
Vincent Jackson (vs. BAL) Jackson missed practice with injured ribs Wednesday, so check back on his status but should be playing this week. His chemistry with Glennon has been great ever since this year and since taking over at QB, Jackson has two touchdowns and his first 100-yard outing. Ravens have struggled with No. 1 receivers giving up at least 90 receiving yards or a touchdown to each of them Emmanuel Sanders & Demarius Thomas (vs NYJ)
Wide Receivers to Sit in Week 6
Larry Fitzgerald (vs Was) Cordarrelle Patterson (vs DET)
Tight Ends to Start in Week 6
Delanie Walker (vs Jax) Owen Daniels (vs TB)
