Our version of start 'em, sit 'em - "Fine or Pine." Go get 'em, Adam Filadelfo! (@Frostt24)
Week six is almost here and it's time to give your lineup serious
consideration. Should you base your decisions on matchups or leave in
every stud player? Sometimes these decisions are easy while other weeks
they can make fantasy owners crazy. This is where The Fantasy Sports
Brain can help.
Fine- Tony Romo- After the shootout with Denver where Romo set a Cowboys
franchise record throwing for five hundred six yards and five
touchdowns, Romo should have no problem this week when he faces a poor
Pine- Carson Palmer- Having thrown seven interceptions to just three
touchdowns the last three weeks should tell fantasy owners all they need
to know regarding the Cardinals signal caller. He's just not that
reliable. Arizona gets a tough San Francisco defense that did most of
the work in beating Houston in week five.
Fine- Dez Bryant- Dez is a must start for multiple reasons this week.
The first being Dallas faces a weak Washington defense that hasn't been
capable of stopping opposing offenses yet. The second reason is Dez has
owned the Skins since coming into the league. He has three touchdowns in
his last four games versus them and his abilities should be on display
once again this week.
Pine- Dwayne Bowe- After being held to a measly four catches for thirty
five yards in week five, Bowe has done very little for his owners up
until this point. His season stats read seventeen receptions for one
hundred eighty three yards and two touchdowns. He's well on his way to
having another poor fantasy season and he faces the Raiders defense this
week which isn't that bad.
Fine- Doug Martin- Up until this point, Doug Martin hasn't lived up to
his first round billing but a game against the Eagles defense could be
just what the "Muscle Hamster" needs. He's coming off a bye week and
should have no problem being a running back one this week.
Pine- Le'Veon Bell- Even though Bell rushed for two touchdowns his last
game, the Steelers get a tough Jets defense that defends well versus the
run. Big Ben may be forced to throw a lot more than he'd like because
finding much room to run may be a tough task this week.
Fine- Rob Gronkowski- It may be Gronk's first game this season but his
presence will be an immediate upgrade to a struggling offense that can't
seem to find any rhythm as of yet. Gronk may not be himself right away
but with the receivers in New England not living up to Brady's
expectations, look for Gronk to command a ton of targets right away.
Pine- Heath Miller- While I like Miller's fantasy value going forward, I
don't like his matchup this week. Against a good Jets D-line, Miller
may be asked to block more for Big Ben as Pittsburgh is figuring to pass
more than run seeing how poor the Steelers O-line is and how strong the
Jets are versus the run.
Fine- Cincinnati- The Bengals face the Bills and Thad Lewis this week. I
don't expect much from the Buffalo offense seeing how Thad Lewis was
just signed off the practice squad and has one NFL appearance under his
belt. Plus Spiller is also a little banged up and the Bengals defense
should have a great fantasy week because of it.
Pine- Tampa Bay- The Buccaneers get the Eagles in week six and we all
know the birds can score points. Revis has struggled a bit this season
and no defense has shown they can stop the Philadelphia offense. The
Buccaneers defense hasn't been that bad this season but the Eagles
offense has been a little better.
