Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30249814 Sit 'em – Scott Chandler vs NYG Sit+%27em+%26ndash%3B+Scott+Chandler+vs+NYG Fantasy Football

We knew this day would come. Wait, no we didn’t! Six weeks ago, nobody knew who Scott Chandler was and now the Bills have forgotten him, too. The last two games have seen the tight end haul in three balls for 12 yards with no touchdowns. His targets are also down from 12 the first three weeks to just three the last two games. If he doesn’t get in the end zone, the nomination to start just isn’t there based on the lack of yardage. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30245812 Start 'em – Ben Watson vs OAK Start+%27em+%26ndash%3B+Ben+Watson+vs+OAK Fantasy Football

If you want to get cute, start Evan Moore. If you want to win, start Ben Watson. The latter leads the Browns with 29 targets, 16 receptions and two touchdowns. The Raiders' pass defense just allowed Owen Daniels and Joel Dreessen to amass 201 yards with a touchdown last Sunday. Oakland is 29th in the league in passing defense, allowing 300 yards per game. They’ve also allowed 10 passing touchdowns (five interceptions) through five games. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30245708 Sit 'em - Jacoby Jones vs BAL Sit+%27em+-+Jacoby+Jones+vs+BAL Fantasy Football

As soon as Andre Johnson hit the turf with a hamstring injury, owners flocked to the waiver wire where they had to ask themselves a question. Will Kevin Walter or Jacoby Jones factor more in the Texans’ offense? The answer was neither. Against the Raiders, Matt Schaub targeted Arian Foster, Joel Dreessen, and Owen Daniels more than K-Walt and out of the 11 balls thrown Jones’ way, he caught one. Since 2009, Jones has only eclipsed 70 receiving yards in a game four times. Sure, he’s good for a touchdown via pass or special teams every now and again, but versus the Ravens, I suggest keeping JJ on the BN. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30249808 Start 'em - Andy Dalton vs IND Start+%27em+-+Andy+Dalton+vs+IND Fantasy Football

The Colts’ pass defense has allowed opposing quarterbacks to throw for 544 yards, five touchdowns, no interceptions and to complete 67.6 percent of their passes the last two weeks. Indianapolis ranks 26th in yards allowed per attempt (8.3) and 29th in opposing quarterback rating (102.5). Don’t let his stats fool you; Dalton is adjusting to life as a NFL quarterback. Two of his worst games came against San Francisco (second-best scoring defense) and Buffalo (see: Brady, Vick stats). He’s looking for his top targets, A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham, on a regular basis. If you are really in a bye week jam, you should feel safe starting the rookie at home. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30245707 Sit 'em - Washington RBs vs PHI Sit+%27em+-+Washington+RBs+vs+PHI Fantasy Football

Philadelphia allows 140.2 rush yards per game. This should be a fantasy no-brainer, but, instead, Mike Shanahan has once again embraced the wrath of fantasy owners. His hesitation to name Tim Hightower, Ryan Torain or, don’t forget, Roy Helu as his No. 1 back has created a high risk-low reward situation. The RBBC is too volatile to suggest one back over another. Washington’s backfield is poison for the moment. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30255104 Start 'em - James Jones vs STL Start+%27em+-+James+Jones+vs+STL Fantasy Football

In an offense where Aaron Rodgers is averaging 36 passes per game, at some point defenses start cheating up on Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley. This has helped increase the fantasy values of Jordy Nelson and, more recently, James Jones.

The fourth option in the Packers’ passing attack has been targeted 17 times the last three weeks with two trips to the end zone. If you doubt Jones’ relevancy moving forward, know he finished with five touchdowns in 2009 and 2010, respectively. Jones against the Rams (see: Smith, Torrey) at Lambeau Field isn’t a bad start. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30249809 Sit 'em - Jahvid Best vs SF Sit+%27em+-+Jahvid+Best+vs+SF Fantasy Football

This “Sit ‘em” suggestion would have been a lot easier sell had Best not exploded on Monday night against the Bears. I’m sticking with my gut, however. Before his 163-yard performance, Best had 39 carries for 118 yards (3.0 YPC) with no touchdowns the last three games. Now, he faces a San Francisco rush defense that shut down Tampa Bay’s (84 yards), Philadelphia’s (33 yards) and Cincinnati’s (74 yards) running backs. The Niners’ rush defense currently ranks fourth in the NFL (76.4 YPG). – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30255106 Start 'em - Daniel Thomas vs NYJ Start+%27em+-+Daniel+Thomas+vs+NYJ Fantasy Football

Thomas has played in two fewer games than Reggie Bush and still has 83 more rushing yards on the season. When healthy, he’s the No. 1 back in Miami and, despite missing the last game in San Diego (hamstring), says he’ll be ready for Week 6 against the Jets. Remember when Rex Ryan’s defense was good? To-date, the Jets rank 31st in rushing touchdowns allowed (eight) and 26th in rush yards allowed per game (134.8). They just allowed BenJarvus Green-Ellis, a back who had been averaging 49.3 rush yards per game, to have it his way and finish with 136 yards and two touchdowns. Thomas is in your lineup this Sunday. – Ryan Fowler

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/10/3_2011101016494680_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/10/3_2011101016494680_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30249804 Sit 'em - Sam Bradford vs GB Sit+%27em+-+Sam+Bradford+vs+GB Fantasy Football

Here’s a question for you, at what point did defensive linemen start acting like koala bears, climbing on Bradford like he’s a piece of bamboo? A picture is worth a thousand words and sums up the Rams’ first four games. So, even against the 30th-ranked pass defense, I want Bradford on the bench. The Packers have sacked opposing quarterbacks 12 times this season. Bradford has been sacked 19 times and only has three touchdown passes in three games. If you’re in the market for 10-12 points from your quarterback, he’s your man. – Ryan Fowler

Andrew Mills/THE STAR-LEDGER via US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/10/5_2011101016494676_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/10/5_2011101016494676_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy football start em sit em Week 6 30255105 Start 'em - Darrius Heyward-Bey vs CLE Start+%27em+-+Darrius+Heyward-Bey+vs+CLE Fantasy Football

Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden is still dealing with a sprained knee suffered two weeks ago against the Titans and sat out Friday’s practice. When healthy, he’s shut down Brandon Marshall, Reggie Wayne and A.J. Green, but if he can’t go on Sunday, Heyward-Bey could feast on the Browns’ secondary. The wide receiver has emerged as Jason Campbell’s top aerial option the last two weeks. He’s been targeted 19 times and picked up 214 yards with a touchdown during that stretch. Denarius Moore isn’t a bad play in deeper leagues. – Ryan Fowler
