Week 6 2013 Fantasy Football Start or Sit All Positions

START’EM WEEK 6 2013

Quarterbacks: 

Start of the WeekTony Romo against the Redskins (had a field day against the Broncos and faces a soft Redskins pass defense), Robert Griffin III (plays the Cowboys and this game should be high scoring), Joe Flacco (if he’s your backup to a backup, he should have a nice matchup against Green Bay w/o Clay Matthews around), Ben Roethlisberger (start with caution or if you have no one better, as the Jets can be thrown against), Andrew Luck (with confidence against a shaky San Diego defense), Philip Rivers (becoming a must start, however the Colts could make things difficult so temper expectations),

Running Backs:

Darren Sproles (the Bears shut him down, but the Patriots should allow him to bounce back, recommended more in PPR formats), DeAngelo Williams, if you need a flex, he has a + matchup against the Vikings), Knowshon Moreno/Ronnie Hillman (playing against Jacksonville and there should be lots of run/garbage time to be had by both RB’s Hillman flex only), Bilal Powell (start with caution due to timeshare w/ Ivory and Goodson, but Pittsburgh allows many points to RB’s), Zac Stacy (Houston’s run defense is awful and he’s getting the start), Willis McGahee (was awesome last week in a tough defense, Detroit shouldn’t be a challenge), Fred Jackson (becoming a must start each week), Alfred Morris (back to health from the rib injury and Dallas isn’t strong at defending RB’s), Danny Woodhead (without Ryan Mathews playing, he is a trusty target for Rivers, especially in PPR formats)

Wide Receivers: 

Pierre Garcon/Leonard Hankerson (wide receivers opposing Dallas score good fantasy points), Steve Smith (facing Vikings weaker pass defense), Justin Blackmon/Cecil Shorts (with Chad Henne should give him WR2 numbers and they’ll be throwing tons against Denver), Mike Williams (if healthy, the Eagles don’t pose much threat), Terrance Williams (Miles Austin is playing but should still get targeted against the Redskins – start for a flex only), Dwayne Bowe (start with caution as he has been disappointing, but Oakland is an easier matchup for WR’s), Josh Gordon (giving owners no reason not to play him), Torrey Smith (will have a good day – Green Bay is suspect),T.Y. Hilton (the Chargers won’t stop him), Antonio Brown (start w/ caution as Cromartie will be on him, makes a decent flex)

Tight Ends: 

Greg Olsen (trusty target for Cam Newton and solid fantasy numbers), Garrett Graham (won’t be competing w/ Owen Daniels while he’s sidelined with a fibula injury), Jeff Cumberland (without Kellen Winslow (susp) he will get more targets from Geno Smith, if you’re in a bind for a TE)

Defenses: 

Jets (against Pittsburgh could get you some + fantasy points), Rams (they could really cause trouble for Schaub), Cowboys (could force mistakes out of RGIII), Eagles (Tampa Bay is a mess), Vikings (face a less than threatening Panthers offense), Colts (created havoc against Seattle last week and should do well shaking up San Diego)

SIT’EM WEEK 6, 2013

Quarterbacks: 

Geno Smith (hard to sit after last week if you need him, but Pittsburgh is a stiffer defense than Atlanta was), Matthew Stafford (tough to bench but if Calvin Johnson is out again, or limited Cleveland could cause another rough day for him – keep posted on Megatron), Alex Smith (against Oakland who limited Philip Rivers Chiefs will rely on the run), Russell Wilson (the Titans will make things difficult for Wilson, forcing the Seahawks to run), Terrelle Pryor (has been playing well, but a 5-0 Chiefs could level his numbers out), Matt Cassel (Panthers defense won’t be easy and the Vikings will run anyway)

Running Backs: 

Pierre Thomas (his 28 touches from last week will not likely repeat this week against the Patriots), Bernard Pierce (Ray Rice is returning to full health and getting most of the RB work), Rashad Jennings (Kansas City isn’t going to make things easy on him), Daryl Richardson (Zac Stacy getting the start, DRich will take a backseat), BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Bernard is edging him out capturing more carries), C.J.Spiller (keeps taking a backseat to Fred Jackson and the Bengals will limit him), Joique Bell (as long as Reggie Bush is healthy, Bell should be sitting) Patriots Running Backs (too much confusion ?? who’s playing, who’s injured – they’ll be throwing to win), Chris Johnson (has no rushing touchdowns yet and the stout Seattle defense won’t allow one either), Eddie Lacy (Baltimore is the stingiest defense against running backs, so if you have better start someone else), Maurice Jones-Drew (MJD has been getting gypped on the goal line carries, which will be minimal also, against Denver),

Wide Receivers: 

Hakeem Nicks (won’t see the numbers he did last week as the Bears severely limited the Saints WR’s last week), Julian Edelman (being limited by Amendola’s return and New Orleans won’t be easy), Kenbrell Thompkins (with Amendola back, Thompkins targets will be limited), Nate Washington, (too up and down to try against Seattle), Golden Tate/Sidney Rice (neither is reliable especially against the Titans), DeAndre Hopkins (little value with a struggling Matt Schaub throwing), Tavon Austin (not nearly reliable enough to face the Texans), Marques Colston (Patriots good at defending WR’s), Greg Jennings (Whoever quarterbacks will struggle against the Panthers), Anquan Boldin (likely you’ll need to play him, but he will be enjoying the coverage of corner Peterson, so expect limitations), Larry Fitzgerald (sadly, is once again hobbled with hamstring troubles and Carson Palmer is just too unreliable, SF won’t make things easy), Eddie Royal/Vincent Brown (not the best guys to play against the Colts)

Tight Ends:

Heath Miller  (the Jets could pose a threat and Roethlisberger could struggle), Jermaine Gresham/Tyler Eifert (hard to rely on one or the other for fantasy points), Kyle Rudolph (isn’t scoring touchdowns and not a viable fantasy tight end at this time), Antonio Gates (tough to sit, but could be limited as the Colts will shake up Rivers and whoever is receiving)

Defenses:

Patriots (wouldn’t advise against a 5-0 Saints), Titans (not a great start versus Seattle) Browns (have been good, but Detroit if Calvin Johnson plays will be tough), Cardinals (the Texans weren’t effective in stopping the 49ers last week, the Cardinals will struggle)
