Fantasy Football Bold Moves | Week 6 

andrew luck 2012

In my personal opinion, risk taking in fantasy football is one of the most important strategies.

I’ve been a huge risk taker for years, sometimes being heckled for starting an average player with an exceptional match-up over a stud with a weak match-up.

Sometimes it pays off, and some times it does not, but it’s the rush of completely irritating my opponent when they see that they lost to a team with an odd lineup.

In case you are interesting, here are some key bold moves that I’ll personally be making in fantasy football for Week 6.

Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts over Matthew Stafford

Stafford is still producing in fantasy, but he still has just three passing touchdowns on the season, while throwing four interceptions. The Philadelphia Eagles defense has been tougher on quarterbacks this season, and he’s no guarantee to have multiple touchdowns.

Luck gets to face a New York Jets defense that is without Antonio Cromartie, and lacks a pass rush to make Luck uncomfortable.

I see Luck having a very solid game, having plenty of time to throw the ball and get around 20 fantasy points.

William Powell, RB, Arizona Cardinals over Doug Martin

This is a super bold start because Martin gets to face a Chiefs defense that has done a very poor job against the run so far in this early season.

However, Martin isn’t getting looks for touchdowns and has to rely on yardage to score for fantasy owners.

Powell isn’t even in line to start, as LaRod Stephens-Howling is expected to start, but he is the better overall back, and should see more touches, while facing a Buffalo Bills defense that ranks dead last defensively.

Andrew Hawkins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals over Anquan Boldin

I’ve never been crazy about Anquan Boldin since his inconsistency has made me me super infuriated him on several occasions. But taking personal bias out of it, I just don’t see the Ravens being able to throw the ball as easily on the Cowboys as Andy Dalton should be able to against the Browns.

Hawkins had a nice performance in Week 2 against Cleveland, scoring on a 50 yard touchdown reception against them. With A.J. Green covered by Joe Haden, Andy Dalton may be forced to look another direction, with Hawkins being the benefactor of Dalton’s targets.

Nate Burleson, WR, Detroit Lions over Denarius Moore

Denarius Moore is a home run threat any time he touches the ball, but he doesn’t have the most exciting match-up heading into Atlanta to face a defense that is fourth against the pass.

Carson Palmer isn’t expected to have a very good day, and if he doesn’t perform well, it’s unlikely that Moore will also.

On the other side, I fully expect Nate Burleson to be bigger with the Eagles focused on shutting down Calvin Johnson. Burleson is Mr. Reliable, and I expect him to come out of this game with a score, even if Stafford has a rough game.

New England Patriots Defense over Houston Texans

The Texans defense has been on fire and should have no problem getting to Aaron Rodgers with the Green Bay offensive line in shambles.

However, it’s still Aaron Rodgers throwing the football against them, and he’s no slouch. You can bet that Mike McCarthy and Rodgers are game planning against very quick blitzes, and making sure that Rodgers has open targets quickly to avoid the pressure.

The Patriots defense gets to go up against rookie Russell Wilson who has had some success, but is still making some very poor decisions with the football. The key for them will be to shut down Marshawn Lynch while they attempt to let Wilson beat them in the air.

    They are often knee great or upper leg high boots as well which can be laced up the entry to make them when tight as possible. It is generally a directly line on the knee to the toes and fingers. Once a thing of only fetish vogue, they’ve today fully began their cross over into traditional runway and also celeb manner. Alexander McQueen included the 10 inch upright Armadillo shoe in his Spring/Summer 2010 style shoe. Types, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Natasha Poly along with Sasha Pivovarova quit the actual show inside protest and it was a big controversy. Needless to say this simply spawned a fresh generation associated with dare demons when Pixie lott and Beyonce put on them.
