Fantasy Football Week 6: Start ’em / Sit ’em

4 of 4

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports


Julian Edelman @BUF (72%, 13) – Has 6 or less targets in 4 of the Pats 5 games this season and with the success Brady had throwing to his TEs last week, I’m not sure Edelman will get enough looks this week to crack 10 fantasy points.

Larry Fitzgerald WAS (50%, 11) – Fitz is becoming a regular on this list due to the fact that he hasn’t had more than 60 yards in a  game yet this season, still hasn’t scored a TD and has a couple of fumbles. He’s being started in half of Yahoo leagues because he used to be awesome. He’s not the same player anymore and shouldn’t be in your starting lineup.

Cordarrelle Patterson DET (46%, 8) – It’s been a disappointing season for Patterson and I need to see some him targeted consistently or used in the running game again before I move him off my bench.

Eddie Royal @OAK (26%, 8) – Don’t chase TDs. Royal has a big game every once in a while, but most weeks he isn’t worth a spot in your starting lineup.

Allen Hurns @TEN (15%, 11) – Had a brutal game in week 5 with multiple drops, a plenty and a costly missed block. As Cecil Shorts and Marqise Lee get healthy I think Hurns will see less snaps and less targets. Try and trade him if you can, maybe somebody still remembers his 2 TDs in week 1.

Owen Daniels @TB (35%, 10) – The Bucs have given up the 7th most fantasy points to TEs and Daniels is coming off a good week (5-70), but I just don’t think he’s talented enough to be a weekly starter. If your TE is on a bye, then Daniels is a decent replacement this week but I would be searching for an upgrade if he was my starter.

Jared Cook SF (16%, 9) – Has 19 targets the last two weeks, but the Rams are on Monday night football against a physical 49ers D so I’m guessing Cook will disappoint in this one.
