Fantasy Football 2017: Week 6 Start / Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 6
October 12, 2017
We’re heading into Week 6 of the NFL, and by extension the fantasy football season is heating up. Let’s take our weekly look at our start/sit recommendations to see if we can help your team with those tough lineup decisions.

Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: We’ll start things out today with Winston, who hasn’t been blowing doors down but has been solid over his last two games, with at least 18 fantasy points in both.
Winston will get a pretty good matchup against the Arizona defense this week. The Cards have allowed at least 22 points to three of five QBs so far this year.
Javorius Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens backfield is kind of a mess this year so far, but we’re getting a little clarity with Allen. He led the team in touches (25) and snaps (47) against Oakland.
Allen gets a pretty good matchup against the Bears this week. Chicago is giving up fantasy points to opposing running backs at a pretty good clip.
Chris Hogan, WR, New England Patriots: With the plug-and-play abilities of the New England offense, a lot of fantasy owners have overlooked Hogan this year.
Hogan is fifth in PPR formats so far this season, and he’s getting a nice matchup against a permissive Jets secondary this week.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers: Something’s wrong with Big Ben this year, and you need look no further than his five-INT performance last week to see that.
Roethlisberger hasn’t been good on the road for the past few years, as he’s averaging right around 13 fantasy points per game. He gets a tough matchup against Kansas City.
Adrian Peterson, RB, Arizona Cardinals: Peterson is getting a lot of attention now that he’s gone through a change of address after a failed Saints experiment. Fantasy owners should hold off this week, though.
Peterson has averaged just 2.13 YPC since last year, and the Buccaneers have been pretty stout against opposing RBs. Try to find another option if you can, and wait this one out.
Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers: Cobb didn’t have a good day in Dallas, posting just 6.9 fantasy points in PPR formats. He’s gone without scoring in three of his last four games.
Cobb has just 12 catches for 131 yards and one touchdown in his four career games in Minnesota. There’s not a lot of reason to believe he’ll improve here.
