2011 Week 6: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

will tom brady show up this week?  (besoccer.com

By now, I hope you have been following my advice on who to play and telling your friends and family about this weekly article. I have been spot on for most of the recommendations including playing Alex Smith, Victor Cruz and Heath Miller last week (all of whom were available in most leagues). Those of you who did not start Josh Freeman, James Starks or Lance Moore because of this column can thank me later. Now on to week 6′s advice.

Start ‘Em

QB: Josh Freeman (he should have a huge bounce back week)

RB: Earnest Graham (go right now, take him off your waiver wire and start him this week)

WR: Mike Williams (TB) (he should be available on the waiver wire, too)

TE: Dustin Keller (he has had two really poor weeks in a row.  I do not expect 3 in a row)

DEF: Oakland Raiders

Sit ‘Em

QB: Tom Brady (Cowboys are coming for him. I bet he scores in the bottom ten for QB’s this week)

RB: DeAngelo Williams (huge week last week, not this week)

WR: Victor Cruz (defenses are going to cover him much more now that they know his talents)

TE: Fred Davis

DEF: Buffalo Bills

Feel free to compare and contrast, and do not forget to tip your waiter.  I will be back next week.

I was too young to fully appreciate the championships the Mets won in 1986 and the Giants won in 1990, but was fully appreciative of the Giants 2007 Super Bowl win. I count 2-3-08 as one of the best days of my life. I moved to Boston with a few coworkers of mine that I hardly knew and took a big chance of moving to a city I barely knew anything about. I got along well with my roommates and my new city and decided to make it my permanent home, despite having difficulties following my favorite teams, due to living so far away from New York. I am extremely passionate about sports and will discuss the Giants Super Bowl win over the Patriots anytime, anyplace and with anybody. I am a social worker in the day and sports writer by night. I enjoy slaving over my laptop writing about sports. My ultimate dream would be to become a professional Texas Hold'em player.

  2. I don’t mean to undermine your opinion but I don’t think Tom Brady should be sat, ever. I think he’s in that auto-start regardless of matchup class. Great call on all the other picks though. I always look forward to reading these and trying to figure out why each player is specifically picked out.

  3. In fairness, I agree that you should never sit Brady. But you do have to look at the fact, that I was right, that he did not have a Brady type game (scoring his lowest fantasy total of the year) and the quarterback I recommended to play, Josh Freeman (who is available in most leagues on the waiver wire) did have a better game
