Start Em Sit Em Week 11 2015 by Utter-Fantasy Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles


Like other fantasy prognosticators, below are my Start Em Sit Em Week 6 NFL players, minus the obvious. ( No one needs to read that I think fantasy owners should start QB Aaron Rodgers at home vs San Diego ) For the Record- I don’t claim to have anymore insight on the games than the fantasy league owners reading these, but I do enjoy sharing my “IMOs” on them, as well as reading yours-  Good Luck this week!

Bye Week- Miami- Minnesota- NY Jets- Carolina

Quarterbacks Start Em Week 6


CHI Jay Cutler (at DET) – Cutler avoided his usual 1 INT a game Week 5 at KC, throwing for 252 yards ( 15 rushing) and 2 TD passes. DET’s defense is almost as bad as KC, so you can safely count on similar stats

PHIL Sam Bradford (vs NYG) – This could be a high scoring game with potent offenses and suspect defenses

NYG Eli Manning (at PHIL) – Same as above

BALT Joe Flacco ( at SF)- He hasn’t many weapons but Steve Smith might be back and he faces the 31st worst defense (SF) in the NFL

Sleeper- HOU B Hoyer ( at JACK)- Finally named the starter- Jags are 28th vs the pass

Sleeper- TENN M Mariota (vs MIA)- This could be a good week to start the rookie at home vs the 31st ranked Miami pass defense


Running Backs Start Em Week 6


Jeremy Hill ( at BUFF)- The Bills have to start EJ manuel ( Tyrod Taylor OUT) so that could mean lots of turnovers, lots of time on offense for CINN- Gio should have a nice game as well

NYJ Chris Ivory (vs WASH)– Coming off their Bye week, Ivory is rested, at home and facing the bad WASH run defense

SF Carlos Hyde (vs BALT)–  the Ravens are not very good vs the run, and Hyde “should” feed off his nice 21 carries for 93 yards and TD Week 5

Sleeper – KC Knile Davis ( at MINN)- RB Charcandrick West is the better athlete but Davis, when given he opportunity in the past, has produced well, so he is Utter-Fantasy’s first choice- MINN is 29th vs the run

Sleeper- Lamar Miller ( at TENN)- Scary putting him here because he’s been so disappointing,however, the match up is very good and at new coaching staff should ride Miller


Wide Receivers Start Em Week 6


HOU DeAndre Hopkins ( at JACK )- The Jags are 28th vs the pass and w/ Julio hurting, Hopkins may be the best WR in the league right now

ATL L Hankerson (at N.O.)- Very quiet week 5, but Julio is banged up ( and did you know that Roddy White has only 8 receptions on the season?) The Saints are 32nd vs the pass

JACK A Robinson & A Hurns ( vs HOU)- Both are on fire of late- HOU is 27th vs the pass

BALT Kamar Aiken (at SF) – 9 targets Week 5- 4 reception for 78 yards. The #1 WR in BALT for Week 6- Steve Smith Sr. (back) was limited in Wednesday’s practice. Sf has the 31th worst Defense

NYG Dwayne Harris ( at PHIL)- Both WRs Odell Beckham and Rueban Randle sustained hamstrings injuries Week 5, so Harris’ fantasy stock rises considerably- He was already a nice part of the offense- PHIL has a the #7 Defense however- UPDATE: Rueban Randle is reportedly practicing Thursday

N.O. Willie Snead ( vs ATL)- Recommended Week 5 on Utter-Fantasy’s Waiver Wire suggestions- WEEK 5 WAIVER WIRE– 6 catches for 141 yards- Seems to be QB Brees’ go-to-guy of late

Sleeper- NYJ Eric Decker (vs WASH)- TD receptions in every game he’s played this season-


Tight Ends Start Em Week 6


NYG Larry Donnell (at PHIL)- Both WRs Odell Beckham and Rueban Randle sustained hamstrings injuries Week 5, and Donnell hauled in a clutch TD reception Week 5

SD Antonio Gates ( at GB)- The Packers are #1 vs the pass, but Gates will get receptions ( and perhaps a junk TD late)

Sleeper- N.O. Ben Watson ( vs ATL)- High scoring game- 36 yards and a TD Week 5- Also WR M Colston is OUT Week 6 so Watson’s targets should go up


Defense Start Em Week 6


CINN (at BUFF)- Buffalo is forced to start QB E J Manuel- ( QB Tyrod Taylor OUT) so the Bengals DEF makes an excellent play Week 6

CHI ( at DET)- The 0-5 Lions are playing their worst ball in years- QB Stafford had 3 INTS just 2 minutes in the 3rd qtr ( benched)- Do you think they’ve fixed what’s wrong in DET in a week?

Sleeper  NE ( at IND)- The Pats will find out if IND QB Luck is 100% or not



Quarterbacks Sit Em Week 6


DET M Stafford (at CHI) – DET is a total mess ( and HC J Caldwell stinks)

CLEV J McCown (vs DEN – Week 5 was a monster of a game for McCown ( 457 yards with 3 TDs ( one rushing)- He won’t come close to that vs DEN

NYJ Ryan Fitz (vs WASH)– I won’t under-estimate WASH pass DEF again Week 5- ATL M Ryan only 254 yards & 0 TDs .WASH allowing only 235 yds a game- 7 TDs total this season

QB Colin Kaepernick (vs BALT)- Having 1 decent game out of every 3- too inconsistent


Running Backs Sit Em Week 6


ALL DET RBs ( vs CHI)- HC J Caldwell is a terrible head coach. For fantasy owners, a team with 4 RBs is a team with none

WASH A Morris ( vs NYJ)–  The Jets are well rested from a Bye week, and they are #1 vs the run ( Morris hash;t done much anyways)

NYG Rashad Jennings( at PHIL)- There are too many RBs in NY getting touches and PHIL is #4 vs the run

Injuries-  to BALT J Forsett and JACK T Yeldon could have them sitting this week


Wide Receivers Sit Em Week 6


CLEV T Benjamin ( vs DEN)- No TDs since Week 3 and DEN has the #1 Defense

WASH P Garcon ( vs NYJ)– The Jets are the #2 Defense in the NFL and Garcon hasn’t passed 64 receiving yards since Week 1- You should have better options Week 6

SD Malcolm Floyd (at GB)- Facing the Packers Defense will be tough for SD Week 6- The only players I trust to produce are WR K Allen and TE A Gates

MIA Jarvis Landry ( at TENN)- Hard to sit one of your best WRs, but Landry has no TDs in 2015, and Miami will likely get back to the running game ( TENN 3rd vs the pass)


Tight Ends Sit Em Week 6


PITT Heath Miller (vs ARI)–  Few teams defend the TE position better than ARI. Miller only has 10 targets since Week 1

MINN K Rudolph ( vs KC)– The Chiefs have only allowed 1 TD reception to TEs all year

Defense Sit Em Week 6


DET Defense ( vs CHI)- Lions are playing too poorly to trust in any position

INDY Defense ( vs NE)- You can’t shut down the NE offense, you can only hope to slow them down some
