Fantasy Football NFL Week 6 Start and Sit: Bridgewater & Donnell

It’s Week 6, the New Orleans Saints actually looked like a professional football team, and now it’s time once again to set those lineups! There’s a ton of great looking matchups this week, and here’s a little help deciding who to play in both season-long and one-day fantasy leagues:

Start: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Minnesota Vikings—Bridgewater sneaks onto the list for Week 6, not necessarily because the Vikings have been playing better the last few weeks but mainly because the Kansas City Chiefs can’t seem to get anything done against quarterbacks. The Chiefs have allowed the most points to fantasy quarterbacks so far in 2015.

Bridgewater comes into this game with Adrian Peterson playing like we expect him to, a receiver corps helping him out, and of course the scrambling threat that defenses always have to account for, so he should have no problem continuing to abuse a struggling Chiefs’ defense.

If you’re in a two-QB league or your main guy is on bye week, Bridgewater is definitely a safe play. If you’re looking to save up for Rob Gronkowski in your one-day leagues, Bridgewater looks like a cheap, reliable sleeper for the week.

Sit: Larry Donnell, TE, New York GiantsDonnell had a fantastic catch to help the Giants overtake the San Francisco 49ers Sunday Night, but at the end of the night he only had 35 yards to go along with that touchdown. In fact, Donnell has yet to score 10 fantasy points in a single game with that being only his second touchdown of the first five weeks.

Donnell will have some upside with a lot of injuries to Giants’ receivers, but the Philadelphia Eagles don’t make things easy on tight ends. Only two TEs have had touchdowns on the Eagles since last season, and one of them was New Orleans Saints’ Ben Watson, who had one last week.

Donnell has also struggled personally against the Eagles dating back to last season with only 32 total yards over two games, so all in all he is probably not the best option. Try using some of the dough you saved playing Bridgewater to aim for a bigger name.
