NFL Week 6 Fantasy Start ‘Em Or Sit ‘Em

Posted by in Fantasy Football on October 7th, 2008 | Comment »


1.) Adrian Peterson – Adrian Peterson owners are probably furious after the Saints shut him down completely. You think that with the Saints shoddy run defense, AP would run wild, but they stuffed the box and made Gus Frerotte beat him with his arm. AP has been held under 80 yards in 3 straight games now. Look for AP to finally break the century mark since week 2 this week against the Lions awful run defense that’s allowing 180 YPG on the ground.

2.) Le’Ron McClain – The Colts have overtaken the Lions for worst run defense. McClain has had 4 TDs in his last 3 games and is averaging 66.5 YPG despite sharing the load with Willis McGahee.

3.) Clinton Portis – Portis, my #1 back, is up against a team that’s allowing 166 YPG rushing. He’s been a top 5 fantasy back so far this year and recently manhandled Philadelphia’s tough run defense. I’m looking to extend my winning streak to 3 with a big game from Portis.

4.) Julius Jones – The Packers are surprisingly struggling against the run (allowing 161 YPG), but they’ve been hit with the injury bug. The Seahawks need to come out running with the injury issues at WR.

5.) Thomas Jones – Fresh off the bye week, the Jets have the Bengals, who are 29th against the run. Sure, the Jets have abandoned the run game and let Brett sling the ball around, but it’s tough not to get back to the run when you’re playing a team this bad against the run.

6.) Gus Frerotte – I know one person whose strategy is play any player that he can get that happens to play the Lions. I wouldn’t be shocked if Frerotte could manage 250 yards and 2 TDs against the Lions.

7.) Ronnie Brown – This is a no-brainer. The Texans are terrible against the run and Ronnie Brown is on fire.

8.) Randy Moss – Moss is up against a team that’s given up a league-high 10 passing TDs and is ranked 32nd against the pass. I told you things would get better for Moss fantasy owners.

9.) Kyle Orton – Orton has more fantasy points per game than Peyton Manning and Ben Roethlisberger and is up against a team that’s allowed 9 passing TDs, the Falcons.

10.) Jason Campbell – Campbell is developing into a legit NFL QB and this week he has the Lions. I expect big stats from him. And to think that this guy has a 96 passing rating, 6 TDs, 0 INTs, and has already surpassed 1,000 yards on the year. He’s been a fantasy steel for whoever picked him up.

11.) Carson Palmer – Palmer fantasy owners are getting fed up with him after his first couple terrible starts, but he looked good at Dallas and is now against the 31st ranked passing defense, but those stats are slightly inflated due to Jets blowout of the Cardinals, which led to 400+ passing yards from Kurt Warner.


1.) Joesph Addai – Addai has been largely unimpressive so far this year. He’s averaged only 53.3 YPG, but has seen the endzone 4 times. This week he has the Ravens 1st-ranked run defense that’s only allowing 64 YPG on the ground. The Ravens haven’t given up a rushing TD all season.

2.) Michael Turner – Turner has been a top 3 fantasy back this year, but he has a tough test against the Chicago Bear’s run defense.

3.) Jamal Lewis – Lewis should be shut down by the G-Men.

4.) Peyton Manning – Expect Manning’s struggles to continue against the Ravens, who’ve allowed only 128 passing yards per game, have given up only 3 passing TDs, and have 7 INTs.

5.) Derek Anderson – The Giants have the 2nd ranked pass defense and ranked 3rd in sacks with 15. Anderson has been garbage so far.
