let’s hope your fantasy season is going better than

Well [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/janoris-jenkins-jersey]Womens Janoris Jenkins Jersey[/url] ,  the Giants’ real season. Let’s hope you’re making the best roster decisions to help that continue. Let’s take a look at start/sit for Week 6.Running backStart: Chris Carson, Seattle SeahawksWhen Carson has been healthy, he’s been getting the carries in Seattle’s backfield. He had 32 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 and 19 carries for 116 yards against the Rams last week. The Seahawks are favored — more likely a run-heavy game script — and Carson will run against a Raiders defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.Start: Alfred Morris, San Francisco 49ersThere are not many other options in the San Francisco backfield, even though I suggested Kyle Jusczyzk as a possible waiver wire add this week. With Matt Brieda out, Morris should get most of the carries. While that might not mean a lot while the Niners trailing, there’s the potential for volume and Morris is going to be the one to see it.Sit: Adrian Peterson, Washington RedskinsOnce Washington starts to trail, the offense abandons Peterson in the run game. He had just four carries for six yards Monday night in the blowout against the Saints and had just 11 carries for 20 yards in the 21-9 loss to the Colts in Week 2. Peterson returned to practice on Thursday after getting banged up on Monday night, but there might not be much opportunity for him to get the ball.[Sunday morning update: Chris Thompson has been ruled out, if you can (you probably can) and you’re desperate, Kapri Bibbs could get some run in this game in the backfield for Washington].Sit: Devonta Freeman, Atlanta FalconsThe Atlanta offense is clicking, but it hasn’t really worked in the running backs. Freeman has been hurt, but returned last week for disappointing results — eight carries for 32 yards and two receptions for nine yards. The matchup is good against a Buccaneers defense that hasn’t stopped anything this season [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/landon-collins-jersey]Womens Landon Collins Jersey[/url] , but there’s a potential the Falcons could be pass-heavy because that’s what works the best. Freeman is also nursing another foot injury and while it’s not a long-term concern, it definitely is for Week 6.[Sunday morning update:Freeman has officially been ruled out, so yea, definitely don’t start him. Ito Smith is likely to get some play, but if you need a back like that, Bibbs might till be the better play with Tevin Coleman getting the majority of the snaps for the Falcons].Wide receiverStart: John Brown, Baltimore RavensOnly Julio Jones has a higher percentage of his team’s targeted air yards than John Brown through five weeks, per Next Gen Stats. Brown has undoubtedly become Baltimore’s No. 1 receiver on an offense that has been better than expected, last week’s dud aside. Brown hasn’t had fewer than seven targets since Week 1. Right now Brown is a perfect combination of volume and big-play upside. Start: Mohamed Sanu/Calvin Ridley, Atlanta FalconsThe Falcons passing game has been able to support three fantasy relevant wide receivers for the past few weeks. While that’s not going to last all season, don’t be afraid to start any of them against the Buccaneers, who rank last in defensive DVOA, 30th against No. 2 receivers, and 24th against “other” receivers. The Bucs have allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers and are one of four teams to allow nine touchdowns to receivers despite being the only one of the four that only played four games.Sit: Devin Funchess, Carolina PanthersFunchess is getting the targets (at least seven in the past three games) and getting targeted downfield enough (12.0 aDOT) [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/curtis-riley-jersey]Womens Curtis Riley Jersey[/url] , but the production hasn’t been consistently there. Funchess has only cracked 70 yards once and he’s averaging a career-low 13.2 yards per reception. He’ll face a Washington defense that was quite good in the secondary before whatever happened in New Orleans. There’s a floor with the volume, but there’s better upside elsewhere.Sit: Quincy Enunwa, New York JetsEnunwa was a target monster in the Jets’ first two games — 21 targets — and while he’s still getting a decent share, the production has declined. Last week against Denver, Enunwa was held catchless on five targets. Robby Anderson, who has half of Enunwa’s targets, has potentially found a groove and already has a higher share of the team’s air yards than Enunwa. The Colts have also been surprisingly competent on defense, allowing the 11th-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers.Tight endStart: Austin Hooper, Atlanta FalconsThe theme here is if your main role is to catch passes for the Falcons, you should be started against the Buccaneers. Hooper is an immensely talented tight end, who doesn’t often see high volume in the passing game because of the other receiving options. Last week, he got 12 targets and turned into nine receptions for 77 yards. The Buccaneers are the worst defense against tight ends, allowing more than one fantasy point per game more than the next worst defense.Sit: Greg Olsen, Carolina PanthersOlsen was a full participant in practice Thursday and looks to be in line to play for the first time since Week 1. But with so much time off, it’s hard to trust he’ll be a major factor immediately in his return [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/jon-halapio-jersey]Womens Jon Halapio Jersey[/url] , especially when considering how erratic the Panthers passing game has been, non-Christian McCaffrey division. Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis arrived at work bright and early Monday morning to some unexpected fanfare after serving a four-game suspension for testing positive for PEDs.He was greeted by smiling teammates Luke Kuechly and Mike Adams, who stood at the front door to the team's stadium holding it open for him. Coach Ron Rivera wore a new black t-shirt with a blue silhouette of Davis celebrating a big play that read "I'M BACK" during his news conference. Several other coaches and players strolled through the locker room wearing the t-shirt as well in support of Davis.Davis' return, combined with the possible return of tight end Greg Olsen from a broken foot this week and the team's dramatic 33-31 win Sunday over the New York Giants — Graham Gano booted a 63-yard field goal through the uprights with 1 second remaining allowing the Panthers to improve to 3-1 — had the locker room abuzz on Monday."We got our leader back," Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson said of Davis, Carolina's all-time leading tackler.Rivera said as long as the 35-year-old Davis is in good football condition, he will start his 147th career regular season game this Sunday against the Washington Redskins.Davis told teammates he's been channeling his energy the past month into working out and getting in the best shape of his life — which naturally led to some good-natured banter in the locker room."Yeah, he swore he had a six-pack, (but) he has about a two-pack," joked cornerback Captain Munnerlyn.Munnerlyn said that Davis, who he views as his older brother, greeted him Monday by grabbing him tightly around the shoulders. He had to remind Davis he'd just played a football game on Sunday and was still sore."I know he has a lot of built-up aggression in him right now," Munnerlyn said with a laugh. "The Washington Redskins can get ready because I know that first week back when somebody touches the ball he's going to want to go full throttle."Rivera said he thought about giving the players a day off on what is known as "victory Monday," but decided against it because he didn't want Davis to have to wait until Wednesday to reunite with his teammates."If he could have, he would have been here at the stadium at 12:01 a.m. (when his suspension was lifted) [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/b.j.-hill-jersey]http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/b.j.-hill-jersey[/url] , but unfortunately he would have been here by himself," Rivera said.Along with welcoming him back, it was clear the Panthers were also trying to cheer Davis up. He announced on Twitter last week that his father had died."I think being around the guys will be a good getaway for him," Munnerlyn said.Davis posted a video on his Twitter in April acknowledging he tested positive for an estrogen blocker but said it was completely unintentional and "in no way would I ever do anything to cheat this game." The 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year award winner said he has been taking the same supplements for the last seven or eight years and never had any issues before.Davis didn't talk to reporters Monday, saying he'd prefer to wait until later in the week as is normally his routine.The Panthers have clearly missed Davis' energy and knack for making big plays. The Carolina defense squandered an 11-point fourth quarter lead on Sunday to Eli Manning and the Giants, only to get bailed out by Gano's field goal."We missed Thomas everywhere, on the practice field, in the locker room," Panthers defensive coordinator Eric Washington said. "When he's removed from the building you feel the impact, you feel the void. You don't replace Thomas Davis."Rivera called Davis a "special locker room guy."Olsen's potential return is good news for Carolina's offense.He led the team in yards receiving for three straight seasons from 2014-16, but has been plagued by a broken bone in his foot the past two seasons causing him to miss a combined 12 games. He re-broke his foot in the team's Sept. 9 season opener, but is expected to practice fully on Wednesday and could play against the Redskins."As long as (the doctors) are happy with how it is healing, a lot of it will be based on how I feel," Olsen said. "That's where we are right now. ... How I feel will guide what I can and can't do."
