Last-Minute Fantasy Notes For Week 6

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Some notes to consider as you set your lineups for Week 6:

Notable inactives: RBs Jerome Harrison (Eagles), Donald Brown (Colts), Clinton Portis (Redskins), Pierre Thomas (Saints); WR Legedu Naanee (Chargers); TE Jermichael Finley (Packers).

Also, Packers stud defensive end Clay Matthews is out, meaning they should be knocked down a few spots in the defense rankings.

Bye weeks: Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers

Peyton Hillis (Browns RB) is active, and he's a safe start. Same with Lions WR Calvin Johnson, who has a shoulder problem.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is active, but I would look for different options. With Roy Williams emerging as a threat in Dallas, there's just not enough balls to go around.

A word about Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. He's listed as active, but I don't trust that concussion at all. I could see him taking a hit and going out early, killing your fantasy team. If you have a better option, roll with it. I'm debating a Joe Flacco play instead, but not sure if I have the guts to pull the trigger.

Justin Forsett is listed as the starter against the Bears. Not a great play, though, especially with Marshawn Lynch there to steal a bunch of carries. Proceed with caution.

Good luck today.
