NFL Week Six Start and Sit Ems

NFL Week Six Start and Sit Ems

Follow on Twitter@cimini

It’s Friday right before a big weekend of football. Injury reports are updated and news as usual will affect fantasy football lineups drastically. Lets dive into some key under the radar start and sit ems for NFL week six.

Start Em

Ryan Tannehill
One can’t conclude a game as worse as the Fish and Tannehill did against the Bengals. Seemingly ready to cruise to 4-1 turned into an ugly turnover feast in the final fifteen minutes. Still Tannehill and the Dolphins offense has another gear that was protected in road environments against the Patriots and Bengals. Expect the fish to turn things over as Tannehill comes out of hibernation of having 2017 off due to injury.

Tevin Coleman
It’s safe to say that Coleman fantasy owners aren’t happy with his on field results. Opportunity has been there for Coleman to be one of the top ten fantasy backs this season yet the Falcons poor play calls have killed him. With Freeman out this is another key opportunity for Coleman owners. This time he’ll pay dividends with double-digit fantasy points against a poor Buccaneers defense.

Tyler Boyd
Boyd has continued to be an exceptional week-to-week fantasy flex and bottom tier wide receiver starter. We all know the opportunities the Steelers defense presents to a tandem team wide receiver pool. Expect Boyd to continue his surprise season.

Doug Martin
Out in London expect both the Seahawks and Raiders to play things safe. With both teams records below .500 vanilla offenses and safe defensive coverage will be exhibited. Martin’s been the quiet platoon back that has not received a fair amount of carries. Look for his legs to help move the chains for the Raiders and for Oakland to get him his season high of carries.

Quincy Enunwa
Many Enunwa owners were disappointed with his zero performance against the Denver Broncos last week. It was an unusual offensive game plan from the Jets where the safe intermediate route just was not there. That’ll change this week against a Colts team that is prone to giving up chunks of yardage in Enunwa’s hot spots.

Others: Phil Lindsey, Al Collins, Michael Crabtree, Allen Hurns, CJ Beathard, Sonny Michel, Tom Brady, and Julian Edelman

Sit Ems

Jameis Winston
More than likely fantasy owners aren’t keying in on starting Jameis Winston. Yet in deeper leagues there are owners that are likely going to take a long shot on Winston based on the matchup. Don’t do it. Atlanta has been one of those teams that has lulled themselves to sleep defensively and offensively. With time running out on their season look for a big effort at home defensively.

JuJu Smith Schuster
There comes a time when on field talent hits a wall statistically. Schuster reaped the big rewards in 2017 and carried it over to an amazing start to 2018. Yet I’d expect a quiet simmered October as defenses have started to realize it’s a bit safer to play Antonio Brown with non blanket coverage. In an inner division game Schuster will not produce the same gaudy stats owners are accustomed too.

Jordan Howard
Coming out of the bye week for the Bears it’ll be interesting to see who gets the more prominent role out of the backfield. Tarik Cohen has started to regain some of his lost touches exhibited to start the season. His presence out of the backfield with safe catches from Mitch Trubisky will hurt Howard on the road.

Ezekiel Elliott
Elliott’s production has been round one quality but something has to give with the offense. Dallas’s production hasn’t translated to the end zone with Zeke Elliott and likely won’t against an aggressive Jacksonville defense. Expect one of Zeke’s lowest output games in his career even at home Sunday.

Others: Christian McCaffrey, DeShaun Watson, Blake Bortles, Aaron Rodgers, Alfred Morris
