The midway point of the regular season in fantasy leagues is upon us and this could be the make or break week if you are on the 3-3 fence or belowe after the games end on Monday. Take heed of my advice below and lead your team to victory. (Or don’t, sometimes even the smartest people get some wrong).
Alex Smith (vs. Oakland): This game will likely turn into a shootout in the second half with Smith being the beneficiary of more throws down the field on a weak Raiders’ secondary.
Rashad Jennings (vs. Baltimore): Jennings is healthy for the first time in weeks and he gets the chance to run against a middle-of-the-road run defense in the Ravens. Might be an opportunity to stay as the No. 1 back for the Giants.
Jeremy Maclin (vs. Oakland): Maclin had three touchdowns in two meetings last season. The veteran should see ample targets this week.
Julius Thomas (vs. Chicago): Thomas is back after the bye week and has a favorable matchup against the Bears’ secondary. Start the tight end if you don’t have any of the studs.
Tennessee D/ST (vs. Cleveland): Cody Kessler is the third string quarterback getting the nod once again for the Browns. If he goes does, the Titans should have even more of a field day against the 0-5 Browns.
Matt Ryan (vs. Seattle): Ryan showed up against the Broncos in Week 5. Don’t expect the same result in Week 6 in Seattle.
Ryan Mathews (vs. Washington): Mathews is one hit away from a long absence and the Redskins have shown they are capable of stopping the run at times this season. Plus, the Eagles are showing they like to throw the ball with Wentz under center. Avoid Mathews if able this week.
Brandon Marshall (vs. Arizona): The Cardinals are one of the best teams at taking the ball away with 12 this season. Marshall will have Patrick Peterson on him most likely which could mean a long day for the wideout.
Dwayne Allen (vs. Houston): Allen has scored twice in five weeks this season, but the Texans have allowed the second-fewest points to tight ends this year. Allen is a streamer option most weeks — not this week.
Carolina D/ST (vs. New Orleans): In a game that should be a shootout, the Saints will be throwing the ball a ton. The Panthers have allowed 7.7 points per game this season than last year, so they are really struggling as well.
