Fantasy Football 2014: Week 6 Start/Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 6
October 9, 2014
It’s Thursday, and not only does that mean it’s time for the NFL to open things up this evening, but it also means that it’s time for our Week 6 Start/Sit recommendations. We’ve got the usual grouping of notable players on tap for you today, so with that said let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see what we can come up with for those tough roster decisions.
USA TODAY Sports
Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants: A lot of people are on the Manning bandwagon this week, and we’re no exception. After some early-season gaffes, he and the Giants seem to have figured things out and are rolling smoothly. Manning put up 200 yards and a pair of scores last week, which was his fourth consecutive multi-TD game.
He’ll get a nice matchup against an Eagles D that can’t stop anybody in the passing game right now.
Bishop Sankey, RB, Tennessee Titans: So far, Sankey has been a frustrating fantasy asset to say the least. He posted just 27 yards against Cleveland last week and once again was bogged down by fellow RB Shonn Greene’s presence. That said, he gets a tasty matchup against the Jags this week, and there should be plenty of fantasy points to go around in that one. He’s a flex option.
Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee Titans: We’re going to stick with this Jags-Titans matchup and take a look at Hunter. Sure, he’s risky, as he feasts or starves depending on the deep ball. That said, the probability of him breaking one increases greatly opposite a Jaguars defense that looks to be phoning it in already.
Tony Romo, QB, Dallas Cowboys: Romo is one of those players who it’s easy to be on the fence about this week. On the plus side, he’s thrown multiple scores in his last three straight and has a solid O-line and a good run game. That said, he’s going into Seattle this week and no one seems to play well there. The Seahawks haven’t been as crushing against the pass this season, but they should be able to clamp down on Romo.
Alfred Morris, RB, Washington Redskins: Morris is usually a fantasy start, but we simply don’t like his matchup this week. He went nowhere against the Seahawks last week, but normally has been pretty good. Still, he faces a solid Cardinals run defense on the road, and that opposition makes us a little hesitant to recommend him.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Minnesota Vikings: Okay, we’re officially pulling the plug on Patterson this season. After a promising opener, he’s underperformed week after week, culminating in two carries for a limp eight yards in the Green Bay loss.
Patterson should be riding the pine in every fantasy format until the Vikes figure out how to get him the ball.
