Every week I see my articles get more and more love from you guys and I really appreciate the support. I will continue to do my best to get the right information out there as to who to start and sit each and every week to help you get your wins. Without further ado, here is my start ’em sit ’em for week 6.
Fantasy Start ’em
Tom Brady vs. KC– Brady is coming off his best fantasy game of the year, and he gets a Chiefs defense who just allowed 430 passing yards to Blake Bortles. The GOAT is primed for a big week, and I think he tops the charts for fantasy QBs.
James White vs. KC – I normally don’t like to use two players from the same game in my start ’em, but White is primed for another good week. He’s got 5 touchdowns in the last 5 weeks and the Chiefs gave up 8 catches for 69 yards and a touchdown to TJ Yeldon last week. White and Michel are gonna have good weeks, and frankly I think this game has some of the highest fantasy point totals in it.
A.J. Green vs. Pit – While Green didn’t get into the end zone last week, he still put up impressive numbers. The Steelers are allowing 202 yards per game to opposing receivers and Green always plays well against division rivals (he caught 3 TDs against Baltimore week 2). He’s a WR1 in all formats this Sunday.
Eric Ebron @ NYJ – Last week Ebron saw my article and showed me who’s boss. I said to sit him and he went off for 9 catches, 105 yards and 2 TDs. He has become a top target for Andrew Luck and should be in lineups every week from here on out.
Fantasy Sit ’em
Derek Carr vs. Sea– Carr has been middle of the pack among QBs in fantasy points and I don’t think that changes this week. Seattle has been surprisingly good on defense against the pass, not allowing more than 19.2 fantasy points to opposing QBs. Also while this is technically a home game for the Raiders, it’s being played in London, and I think the 12th man might be a factor out there.
Kenyan Drake vs. Chi– Frank Gore has been cutting into Drakes workload and if it wasn’t for his prowess in the passing game, Drake would be almost fantasy irrelevant. Going against the Bears who have allowed the least fantasy points to opposing RBs this year, I’m keeping Drake out of my lineup.
Will Fuller V vs. Buf– Fuller hasn’t been involved as much in the Texans offense since Keke Coutee came into the picture. Going up against a Bills defense who have been pretty good at holding opposing fantasy WRs in check, I think Fuller is a boom or bust option.
Evan Engram vs. Phi – Engram has been sidelined the last couple weeks and on a short week against the Eagles defense I think he needs to be benched, if he plays.
