Week 6 Fantasy Football Start and Sit
It’s Tuesday, October 9th, and I checked the scores again to still find that the Indianapolis Colts beat the Green Bay Packers. Maybe it’ll change tomorrow? Week 5 gave us its share of surprises (Colts) and some significant injuries (RG3). Just goes to show how unpredictable the NFL can be.
With that, I try to predict the unpredictable in week 6!
QB, Andy Dalton, Cincinatti Bengals
Dalton is playing @ Cleveland this week. It’s hard to imagine a fantasy owner not drooling when they look at their roster and see that one of their players is “@CLE”. The formula is as follows: @CLE = START! Let the trend begin. 321 passing and 3 TD’s
QB, Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts
The Colts were definitely more motivated and inspired with the recent news of Head Coach Chuck Pagano battling leukemia. The motivation should continue for Luck who faces the Jets defense in week 6. 301 passing, 2 TD’s
RB, BenJarvis Green-Ellis, Cincinatti Bengals
Green-Ellis hasn’t had much to cheer about so far this season. Cinci has been more of a passing threat with A.J. Green. However, remember, “@CLE = START! Green-Ellis should be productive to 95 rushing and a TD
RB, Reggie Bush, Miami Dolphins
Bush has been sort of a rollercoaster play; some good and bad games. I do like him and think the Dolphins will rely on him against the Rams. 102 rushing, 4 receptions 43 yards and a TD
WR, Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Great game in week 5 and Mario Manninham is hurt. I have to think Crabtree gets some more looks and targets against the Giants’ banged up secondary. 6 receptions, 88 yards and a TD
WR, Jeremy Kerley, New York Jets
The Jets are heavily battered and beaten at the WR spot. Kerley will get a lot of targets from Sanchez against the Colts defense. Should be a nice flex option. 6 receptions 97 yards and a TD.
TE, Jermaine Gresham, Cincinatti Bengals
Remember….”@CLE=START!”. Gresham will have his targets and opportunities. Should get 3 receptions 62 yards and a TD.
QB, Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens
Did you know that the Cowboys are, statistically, the top passing defense in the NFL? Their corners heve played very well and I think they’ll limit and pressure Flacco.
QB, Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys
Romo has been very disappointing so far this season. Is it logical to think that he all-of-a-sudden wakes up and has a great game, on the road, in Baltimore against that tough defense? I think not!
RB, Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins
Morris has been pretty efficient this year. He is going against a Vikings defense that has been extremely solid; especially against the run. Also, QB Griffin III might be out after a concussion so it could be a long day for the Redskins.
RB, Ahmad Bradshaw, New York Giants
Bradshaw burned me last week in this column but I didn’t know Andre Brown was going to get hurt and increase Bradshaw’s workload. I don’t feel great about him facing the tough 49ers defense. I’d say he’s a flex play at best this week.
WR, James Jones, Green Bay Packers
Another solid week with 2 TD’s for Jones against the Colts in week 5. I think Houston has picked up on the fact that Jones is Aaron Rodgers’ favorite redzone target. Houston has the personnel to shut that down.
WR, Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens
This one is tough but the numbers don’t lie. The Cowboys have terriifc corners and the top passing D in the league. Smith looks like a flex play at best this week to me.
TE, Scott Chandler, Buffalo Bills
Did you know that the Cardinals have given up the 26th most fantasy points to TE’s so far this season? I’m gonna stick to that stat.
