Fantasy Football 2015: Week 6 Start/Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 6
October 15, 2015
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for the NFL’s Week 6 to get going this evening. We fantasy football owners also have some major decisions to make when it comes to our lineups, so let’s check out our weekly Start/Sit list to help with those tough choices.

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Minnesota Vikings: This looks like a good week to trust Bridgewater. He’s coming off a decent performance against Denver, even though he had to contend with a pesky pass rush all day.
Bridgewater will face a flailing Chiefs team that is entering “phone it in” mode with their top playmaker gone.
T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: We were pretty high on Yeldon last week, but he didn’t do much and was hampered by a groin injury. Thankfully, that injury is reportedly not serious, and he should get plenty of work this week.
Yeldon will face a Texans defense that’s a shell of its former self against the run. He should do well.
Jordan Matthews, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: So Matthews has three crummy fantasy weeks in a row after starting out the season with a bang. He’s a popular must-start candidate this week, however, and we’d tend to agree.
Matthews will face off against the Giants, which is a nice matchup for him. He should be able to get back into the end zone.
Charcandrick West, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: We know that Jamaal Charles owners who managed to grab West off waivers are eager to try out their new toy, but honestly there are probably better waiver options out there. West will tandem with Knile Davis, and probably won’t get enough touches to do anything notable.
Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati Bengals: Bernard has gotten himself some flex recognition in fantasy, even while sharing snaps with Jeremy Hill. He’s still more of a matchup play, however, and this week doesn’t look good.
The Bengals will go up against a very tough Bills run defense. Buffalo has only given up two rushing touchdowns this year so far.
Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants: Manning has been playing well this season overall, and he’s crept his way into the starting lineup conversation in fantasy. That said, Manning doesn’t have a great history against Philly, and with two of his top targets ailing, he’s more of a liability in fantasy.
