Fantasy Football: Week 6 Who To Start and Who To Sit

October 10th, 2013 by Sam Shipley | 1 Comment | Filed in Football, General, Sports


I will be giving out three “starts of the week”, with a sleeper. I will also give out three “sits of the week” at each position. Now I will not be writing obvious players such as Adrian Peterson or Peyton Manning for example, because they are obvious starts. If you have any questions that you want to ask me personally feel free to tweet me @samshipley5 and I will get back to your question as fast as possible.

TEAMS ON THE BYE: Dolphins and Falcons

WHO TO START: Quarterback

Tony Romo vs. Washington: Tony Romo is coming off of the best game of his career throwing for over 500 yards and five touchdowns, against Denver last week. This week he goes up against the worst defense in the NFL. The Redskins are dead last in the league allowing 440.5 yards per game, and rank 28th in the league in passing yards allowed per game (298.2 yards). The Redskins are coming off a bye, but before that they had their first win of the season against the Oakland Raiders. The defense looked good, but lets keep in mind that Terrelle Pryor didn’t play in that game either. This week on Sunday Night Football, at home I see no reason why Tony Romo won’t have another big game against a horrible Redskins defense. It probably won’t be a 500 yard or 5 touchdown performance again, but I do expect a very good game out of Romo.

Phillip Rivers vs. Colts: Phillip Rivers is currently having a resurgence of a season that I am not sure anyone expected him to have. Rivers has thrown for 13 touchdowns to just 5 interceptions, and 1,610 yards so far. His first bump in the road was last week at home against the Oakland Raiders which was kind of surprising, but he still managed to put together a solid performance. This week I think Rivers is in for another good game, whether it is because they will be playing from behind against a good Colts team most of the way, or that this game turns into kind of a shootout, either way I see Rivers putting together a solid stat line. Ryan Matthews probably not playing helps as well.
