Fantasy Football week six, time to wach the weather and injury reports

As we get into week six there seem to be certainties that you can count on every year. The weather beginning to become a major factor as the rain and cold begin to roll in, and the injuries become more prevalent. So, as move towards the mid-way point in the season we’ll consider both of those factors as we look toward putting the best lineup. With that said, here’s who we think should have big point days this weekend.
Peyton Manning – Colts (vs. Redskins) – Ok any time you get a chance to start Peyton it’s kind of an easy call, but so far this year he’s only been the top point quarterback once this year (week 1) including a dismal showing last week, only going for 244 with a pick and no TD’s. However, going up against the 30th ranked pass defense in the league look for PM to break out of his short slump and go for 25 points plus in this one.
Arian Foster – Houston (vs. Chiefs) Look for Foster to make up for his horrible 25-yard 0 touchdown performance against the Giants with a strong 100-plus yard, 2 td performance against the Chiefs this weekend. I realize those are bold numbers but at home the Texans are a totally different club and I’s still not sold on the Chiefs defense.
Hakeem Nicks – Giants (vs. Lions) 26th against the run 24th against the Pass gives you a good place to start, and he’s quickly becoming a top point man every week with 130, 110, and 75 (3tds) under his belt already this season, Nicks should go for big points against the Lion’s defense. Start him in your 2’s or 3’s.
Sleeper Pick of the week – Michael Bush (vs. Niners) showing huge potential as his carries increase and he should get plenty this weekend as the Raiders are dealing with the afore mentioned injury concerns with Gradkowski still not participating in practice so we may see Jason Campbell. In either case put Bush in as your 2 or 3 and you might get RB1 points.
Get him to the airport - Jerricho Cotchery - WR (Jets) Although he had his season high five catches last week against Minnesota don’t look for that to be a continuing trend with Santana Moss returning to the lineup. If you have JC in your top three put him on waivers now, do a little work, and find a good matchup where you might steal a td.
