Fantasy Football 3 IN/OUT week 6











-   Week  6 –

Each week, the FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT will not include players that are locks for your starting rosters, just the ones that are considered “fringe” starters and may be outside the TOP 10 at each position.

They are the ones that you may have on the bench or ones that you can find on the waiver wire. Either way, they are the players we think will have a big game for you this week and players that have a tough row to hoe. They are the ones you want to start and players you need to bench. This week we will talk about 6 players that will help or hurt your team in week 6, and a bonus DST that you can plug and play.  As always, it’s followed by a great recipe, this time it’s Argentinian Mixed Grill.


Lets get to it.

Here is a handy NFL Schedule Grid you can refer to throughout the season…

For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. You never want to concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, just aim to get to this number, hope for more and let the chips fall where they may. To reach this goal you will need (at minimum) 12 points from each of your starting skill positions, over 20 from your QB, more than a few from your kicker and at least 11 from your defense. This is the threshold for the IN/OUT predictions.

Here are the basic league settings that we are basing our predictions on…


QB,2WR,2RB,TE,FLEX (w/r/t), K, DST
TDs=6 pts0 pts allowed=10
passing=25 yds/pt2-6=7
receiving=10 yds/pt7-13=4
rushing=10 yds/pt14-20=1
reception=1 pt21-27=0
blocked kick=5
Return Yds=50 yds/pt







from fftoolbox:
Going into the 2013 season, the talk in Denver was that they would use a three headed rushing attack, but most wouldn’t have expected for veteran Knowshon Moreno to be at the top of that depth chart. Through the first five games, Moreno leads all Broncos running backs in all categories by a wide margin and with how good the offense has looked, that shouldn’t change any time soon. This coming week the Broncos face a pathetic Jacksonville team that is bad at everything, including being the worst rush defense in the NFL – giving up a league worst 160 yards per game on the ground. Moreno makes for a very good RB2 or flex play this week.
from cbsports:
Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has a strong matchup against the Jaguars Week 6. The Jaguars have done a poor job defending running backs this season. The team has allowed 129.60 rushing yards per game on the ground, which is the worst in the league. Moreno is coming off one of his stronger games this season, rushing for 93 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys. The Broncos are expected to get out to a big lead against Jacksonville, which could allow Moreno to get more work as the team is trying to run out the clock. At the same time, the club could try to work in Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball more often if they have a large lead. Even so, Moreno should be the running back that sees the most time early, as the team is building their lead. He should be considered a strong play against the Jaguars.
from profootballtalk:
Well, it’s not exactly the Algonquin Round Table, but at least LeSean McCoy’s standing by his harsh words. The Eagles running back posted a message on Twitter Sunday, with a simple and scathing critique of Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno, offering “Knowshon sucks.” But unlike many athletes who quick-delete something that might get them in trouble and apologize (a route he’s taken in the past), McCoy left it there and was mostly willing to own it Wednesday. “I don’t want to talk about the past,” McCoy said, via John Gonzalez of “It is what it is. What I said is what I meant.” Asked if he regretted the remark, McCoy replied: “No.”

FANFOOD Says: Start him over Darren Sproles, C.J. Spiller and Giovani Bernard.



from juanelway:
The Vikings can’t stop anyone, but my only problem with his matchup is the fact that the Vikings have given up almost as much on the ground as they have given up through the air. Why is that a problem? Because Willy doesn’t get it done through the air.
from funston:
MIN 3rd-most FAN PPG to RBs, and DeLo healthy 9 runs of 10+ yards
from fantasyfootballmaniax:
Williams is looking like a great play this week against the Vikings, who give up the 2nd most points to fantasy running backs.

FANFOOD Says: Start him over Chris Johnson, Le’Veon Bell and even Eddie Lacy. 




from NFLsoup:
If you have Cutler, you’re probably already starting him regardless. But he should be an extra special start this week playing at home in primetime against one of the league’s worst defenses.Cutler has found a new toy to play with. That toy is named Alshon Jeffery who can catch touchdown passes just like Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte as well. There are too many weapons on this offense with Jeffery emerging and Martellus Bennett getting healthier. Cutler is a great play this week.
from fantasysportsLR:
Beware the short week but matchup vs. 3rd most generous QB D hard to ignore
from cbssports:
Cutler has been nothing short of spectacular this season with at least 20 Fantasy points in four of five games. He has adjusted well to new coach Marc Trestman’s offense, and he’s maximizing all his talent with Brandon Marshall, Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte. He has a great matchup this week against the Giants and their beat up secondary, which has allowed every opposing quarterback to score at least 20 Fantasy points (Nick Foles and Vick combined for 30 last week). The Thursday night games have been tough on passing games this season, but we’d gamble on Cutler being a Top 12 quarterback this week.
from juanelway:
The G-men have always been known for their defense, but this season they have been soooo bad. Cutty will be smoking a Marlboro after he bangs the hell out of this defense on Thursday night.
from rotoexperts:
People still have a negative perception of Cutler. Get over it. He will have a mistake-prone game from time to time, but he is playing much better in Marc Trestman’s offense. The improvement of Alshon Jeffery and addition of Martellus Bennett has enhanced the offense. Cutler has passed for at least 292 yards in three of five games and is averaging 273 passing yards per game to go with 10 TDs and six INTs. The Giants have allowed the third most Fantasy points to quarterbacks.

FANFOOD Says: Start him over Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, and Cam Newton.








from numberfire:
Oh, Chris Johnson. You were once so much better than your highly boring name would suggest. Your play suggested something more dynamic, like Maximus Von Brilliant. These days you’re living up to all the soft, doughy grayness that your insurance salesman name indicates. A whole lot of nothing. Where your comparables were once Terrell Davis, you now top out at William Green 2002. William Green? Who? Oh, right, someone roughly league-average with a boring name. How appropriate! To make matters worse, you’re going into Seattle (our #3 NEP power-ranked defense) with Ryan Fitzpatrick under the center. I hope you’ll get some time to do some touristy things while you’re there, otherwise that trip is going to be quite unpleasant.
from fftoolbox:
Despite scoring his first touchdown of the season in week five, Chris Johnson is still struggling to get anything going on the ground. Johnson rushed for just 17 yards on ten carries against the Cheifs, but did add four receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown through the air. The former 2000 yard rusher is averaging a measly 3.1 yards per carry on the season, and this week’s match-up with the Seahawks should do nothing to boost his average. Johnson is still not seeing any goal-line work, and aside from his broken play, 50 yard receiving touchdown last week, has not sniffed the endzone in five games. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for a RB2 this week in Seattle.
from juanelway:
CJ has been a major disappointment outside of his 49 yard TD on a broken play last week. He is going to get more targets with Fitz behind center, but hardly trustworthy in possibly the toughest matchup you can find.
from cbssports:
There were two things I liked about Johnson’s performance in Week 5 against Kansas City – he scored a touchdown for the first time all year and was used as a receiver. He had a season-high four catches, which could be a result of Fitzpatrick starting for the injured Jake Locker (hip). Whatever the reason, we hope it continues, but it’s hard to start Johnson this week. His touchdown against the Chiefs came on a broken play for a 49-yard reception. He could obviously do something like that again, but if he didn’t score he would have finished with two Fantasy points. The Seahawks did allow Maurice Jones-Drew and Jordan Todman to score in Seattle in Week 3 in their last home game, but that happened in garbage time. If you’re counting on something similar for Johnson then start him this week, but I’m hesitant to trust him.

FANFOOD Says: Sit him in favor of Willis McGahee, Danny Woodhead and the aformentioned DeAngelo Williams.



from fftoolbox:
Marques Colston is coming off his worst game of the young season, catching just two passes for 15 yards in a win over the Chicago Bears. While Colston can usually be expected to bounce back, the match-up with Aqib Talib and the Patriots this week is not a good one. Talib has been excellent so far this season, including holding A.J. Green to just 61 yards on five receptions in week five. With Jimmy Graham dominating the league right now, Colston has not seen his usual amount of targets from Drew Brees, and until he can get back on track, should not be viewed as anything more than a high end WR3 in fantasy leagues. Fantasy owners who have a strong receiving corps should strongly consider sitting Colston on their benches this week.
from fantasysportsLR:
Last week’s target load was extremely disappointing but it was clear that NO game planned to involve TEs, checkdowns, and win with the clock. Hopefully things return to normal this week
from NFLsoup:
Hasn’t been dominant but Saints spread it around too much for him to suffer for long.

FANFOOD Says: Sit him in favor of Terrance Williams, James Jones and even Keenan.



from numberfire:
When everyone was going nuts about Kenbrell Thompkins in the preseason, we were hot on Julian Edelman. When everyone was flapping their Cheetos-encrusted lips about Zach Sudfeld, well, we told them they were crazy and they didn’t deserve to be in the fantasy sports recommendations business. Guess what happened, my pretties? Unfortunately, the show is probably over. Rob Gronkowski comes back soon and Danny Amendola looks to be finally healed from whatever paper cut he’s had for the past month, all coinciding with a strange return to Earth by Tom Brady, the result of a very mediocre rushing attack. Factor in a surprisingly potent New Orleans defense, and you’ve got on tap low-scoring game for what looks on paper to be a shootout.Bench Julian, and look at waiver guys like Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, or even Donnie Avery instead. Donnie Avery. Damn. I can’t believe I just wrote that.
from cbssports:
Edelman’s time as a starting Fantasy receiver might be at an end, at least until the next Amendola injury. Edelman had just seven targets against the Bengals with Amendola back, and he finished with a season-low two catches for 35 yards, including a dropped touchdown. I’m also concerned about Kenbrell Thompkins with Gronkowski coming back because now all those red-zone targets — he’s tied for second in the NFL with nine — should go to the tight end. This game has the potential for a shootout, so consider who you are starting over Edelman and Thompkins, but the best part of their seasons might be behind them.
from NFLsoup:
Still being targeted but brace for the return of Gronk hurting his value
from funston:
Hurt by likelihood Amendola and Gronk both active in Week 6

FANFOOD Says: Sit him in favor of Michael Floyd, DeAndre Hopkins and/or Emmanuel Sanders.




FANFOOD Streaming Defense of the Week



from fftoolbox:
For those streaming defenses, either unit in the Pittsburgh-NYJ matchup offers potential, but let’s focus on the home team. Actually, let’s start with the Steelers, who in four games have surrendered 15 sacks, thrown five interceptions (at least one from Big Ben in each game) and lost six fumbles. Le’veon Bell’s presence helps with ground game, but the Jets front-7 devours ball carriers. If New York makes Pittsburgh’s attack one-dimensional, expect plenty of sacks against a suspect offensive line.
from Michael Sherman – Fantasy Team Advice:
Somehow, the Jets D/ST are under 10% owned in Yahoo Standard Scoring Leagues. Against a Pittsburgh offense that relies on running the ball through the mouth of a defense, the Steelers are playing right into the Jets strength. The Jets are significantly faster on the line than we’ve seen in years past and should have Big Ben on the ground all game.
from fantasysmacktalk:
The Jets defense has been decent this year and I like their chances at home against the Steelers week 6. They will be at home and even though the Steelers are coming off of a bye, I feel the Jets will be able to get some pressure on Big Ben. They are a top ten defense in terms of sacks this year and when you combine that with the Steelers terrible offensive line, I think this could mean at least a few sacks for the Jets.

 FANFOOD Says: Start over DSTs like The Bungles, Texans, and Packers.
