Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31928353 Sit - Kyle Rudolph Sit+-+Kyle+Rudolph Fantasy Football

Flying high from a victory over the Steelers, and because they were returning from England, the Vikings relaxed during an early bye week. In that time, Minnesota signed newly free agent Josh Freeman and a quarterback controversy continued. With extra pressure on Matt Cassel and the Carolina defense only allowing 3.5 fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, I’d sit Kyle Rudolph this week. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31929086 Sit - Rams WRs Sit+-+Rams+WRs Fantasy Football

The 49ers ran for 177 yards on the Texans defense Sunday night, boosting Houston’s average to 126 rushing yards per game (27th-most). San Francisco went with a rushing attack because they noticed that the Texans are best against the pass. In 2013, Wade Phillips’ defense has only allowed 134 yards per game in the air. If Jeff Fisher wins, it will be through the ground and pound…and a Matt Schaub pick-six. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31928354 Sit - Frank Gore Sit+-+Frank+Gore Fantasy Football

Much like I described in the write-up of DeMarco Murray, I cannot give advice to your specific league in these general galleries. For example, if you are in a 12-16 team league, it would be foolish to bench Frank Gore because your other options are probably Tashard Choice and Michael Turner (where is Turner, anyways?). However, if you have a league where the flex position includes tight ends or you only need to start two running backs and the bye weeks are hampering your decisions, then sit Gore. The Cardinals own the third-best rushing defense (79 ypg) and allowed the fewest rushing TDs (one). – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31928352 Sit - Maurice Jones-Drew Sit+-+Maurice+Jones-Drew Fantasy Football

Almost every week it seems like Maurice Jones-Drew is in this gallery, in both negative and positive ways. Unfortunately, it’s not a good sign for Week 6 owners. His Jaguars travel to Denver where the point-spread is the highest in NFL history. As if that wasn’t enough to completely abandon the running game, the Broncos allow the fewest rushing yards this season with an average of 69.6 ypg. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31929087 Sit - Matthew Stafford Sit+-+Matthew+Stafford Fantasy Football

Calvin Johnson is the best player on the Lions and it’s very evident that the offense struggles when he isn’t on the field. Last Sunday, Detroit only managed to score nine points in a loss to the Packers without Megatron. This week, a probably-not-100-percent CJ will get shutdown corner Joe Haden. The Browns have only allowed two passing touchdowns this season, fewest in the NFL. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31927166 Start - Alshon Jeffery Start+-+Alshon+Jeffery Fantasy Football

In the past two weeks, Alshon Jeffery is the second-highest wide receiver targeted with 24 passes, four targets behind Victor Cruz. In fact, he only has two fewer targets than No. 1 receiver Brandon Marshall. With the Bears losing two-straight games, they’ll look to bounce back against the winless Giants on Thursday night. New York has allowed an average of 36.4 points per game. If that continues this week, I see Jeffery contributing to many fantasy teams. – Adam Meyer

Rick Osentoski - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/08/startsit5_20131008113257806_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/08/startsit5_20131008113257806_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31928347 Start - Jaguars WRs Start+-+Jaguars+WRs Fantasy Football

This season, no receiver has been targeted more than Cecil Shorts (62 targets). There are two main reasons for that: 1) The Jaguars are often trailing on the scoreboard, 2) There wasn’t a solid No. 2 receiver in Jacksonville for the first four weeks. Don’t get me wrong, they will still be behind. However, now that Justin Blackmon has returned from suspension, there will be more opportunities for both him and Shorts to get open and produce points. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31928348 Start - DeMarco Murray Start+-+DeMarco+Murray Fantasy Football

Being a person who advises others on their fantasy football decisions I must cater to all types and sizes of leagues. From eight to 16 teams. Touchdown-only to PPR. I say this in advance because people in larger leagues know to start DeMarco Murray as long as he stays healthy. Smaller leagues may waver because Murray had his lowest-point total of the season last week in the shootout with Denver. Washington’s rushing defense is ranked 31st (142.3 ypg) while Denver is first (69.6 ypg). – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31927164 Start - Danny Woodhead Start+-+Danny+Woodhead Fantasy Football

Since many people didn’t stay awake late enough to watch Sunday night/Monday morning’s game between the Chargers and Raiders, I’m sure I’ll still get plenty of “Should I start Ryan Mathews?” questions. Quick answer: No. Oakland took an early lead and the running game for San Diego was basically non-existent, 32 yards total between three running backs. Danny Woodhead was the best RB on the field that game. He’s also the second-most targeted player by Philip Rivers. – Adam Meyer

Christopher Hanewinckel - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/08/startsit2_20131008113256804_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/08/startsit2_20131008113256804_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 6 31927165 Start - Cam Newton Start+-+Cam+Newton Fantasy Football

Other than his 37 point performance against the Giants two weeks ago, Cam Newton has been lackluster this season. Even after a bye week, he couldn’t crack double-digit points against the Cardinals. This week, Newton will face the Vikings’ 29th-ranked passing defense who has allowed 326 yards per game through the air. In the dome atmosphere in Minnesota, I envision Newton carving up the Viking secondary and possibly running one in the end zone. – Adam Meyer
