Week Six – Start ‘em or Sit ‘em

Start ‘em

QB Jameis Winston:

The 2-2 Bucs face a Falcons team this weekend who are terrible in nearly every aspect of their defense. They allow the fifth highest completion rate and fourth most fantasy points allowed to opposition quarterbacks.

The Bucs struggle to run the ball and why would you need to with several great pass-catchers on their side.

Winston is going to have a field day.

Prediction: 400 yards, four touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, zero intercepts


RB Todd Gurley:

Arguably the best running back and fantasy points thief in the game, Gurley will post huge numbers this week against the Broncos who are terrible against the run defence. Expect a lot of handoffs from Jared Goff during this encounter.

Don’t expect much resistance from the Broncos D. They will be stretched all over the park marking every other pass-catching target that the Rams have.

Gurley’s numbers have been great of late and we see no reason they will not continue.

Prediction: 150 rushing yards, two touchdowns


RB Sony Michel:

Michel faces a Chiefs defense who couldn’t defend their own kitchen from a spider. He is averaging 2.3 yards after first contact this season, while the Chiefs allow 4.5 before first contact. Add these together and the stats point to Michel running amok all afternoon in Foxborough.

This will be a high scoring game between two very good quarterbacks. Don’t expect a lot of defense from either side.

Prediction: 120 rushing yards, one touchdown.






Sit ‘em

RB LeSean McCoy:

A trade away from Buffalo is imminent for McCoy as he faces a Texans side that only allows 3.5 yards per carry this season. Unless he crosses the paint for a touchdown, he will score terribly this week. The sooner he leaves Buffalo the better for everyone.

Prediction: 40 rushing yards


QB Derek Carr:

Carr is having a season to forget. Don’t be surprised if he fails to see out the season as a starter for the Raiders. Expect the Seahawks defense to cause a lot of headaches for Carr post snap.

He has a horrible redzone QBR of just 14.8. He has some good target to throw to but is missing the big man to target in the endzone when the time comes.

This is going to be a tough trip to London for him and the Raiders. Stay away from him.

Prediction: 120 passing yards, one touchdown, three interceptions


WR Corey Davis:

Don’t expect a lot from Davis this week, his QB Marcus Mariota has thrown the second fewest passes per game. Only one of his receivers have gone for more than 70 yards in a game this season against the Ravens and Davis won’t match that on Sunday.

The Ravens defense has only allowed 58 percent of passes to be completed to wide receivers this season. Expect a tough day the office for Davis.

Prediction: Five catches for 50 yards.
